Default Group Plans Protest Of Roethlisberger Before Steelers Game

Group Plans Protest Of Roethlisberger Before Steelers Game
http://www.thepittsburghchannel.com/...18/detail.html

PITTSBURGH -- One group told Channel 4 Action News that it's planning to protest quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's return to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

Sarah Ainirial told Action News reporter Marcie Cipriani that she and her group are planning a tailgate protest outside Heinz Field before the Steelers game against the Cleveland Browns at 1 p.m.

"We're just a group of Pittsburghers who aren't OK with what happened and aren't OK with Big Ben being brought back to the field," said Ainirial.

Ainirial said Roethlisberger's four-game suspension after a sexual assault allegation by a 20-year-old Georgia college student was too lenient and sends the wrong message.

"Players are supposed to conduct themselves in a certain manor. Players have been traded and cut from teams for things such as DUIs, drug use, bar fights. So why is it when someone is accused of assault they're just given a suspension? That's not OK. That's not adequate and we feel as though a lot of it is because of what a valuable player Ben Roethlisberger is," said Ainirial.

Roethlisberger was never charged in the case.

Cipriani reported that Heinz Field officials said security will check fans and confiscate any vulgar or inappropriate material targeting Roethlisberger or any other player.

Pittsburgh police said they are aware of the protest plans and said a decision will be made Friday on whether or not more officers will be needed, Cipriani reported.

Police said the group does not have a permit to march.

Because they at least need to be formally charged first, you dizzy bimbo....

I wonder if she was even a football fan before this happened. This just gives the media the ability to focus on the 5% instead of the 95% like it is 50/50. The stadium is for watching the game so if she brought tickets to distract the fans during the game, I hope they kick her out. What a B...ruining it with a tailgate protest.

I guess accusations are worse than charges or convictions these days. Or this group of people weren't very popular in high school and are starving for some attention. WTF? get over it already...

Yes, and wouldn't it be funny if she and her group are formally charged for disorderly conduct, public drunkenness or something?

Ben deserves whatever backlash he gets with his idiotic decisions. I've reached a place where I will give him another chance, but he's the type of guy that if he feels he got away with no significant reprecussion, he'll repeat the behavior.
