I agree with that fact he has millions on the line. But if its his choice to ride and risk the money thats his choice. I sat and was hoping ben would fall to the steelers when they drafted him. I'm a huge ben fan. But let him make his own selfish choices

Dude I have watched Ben Roethlisberger since his college days. So i'm a huge Big Ben fan. I to wanted Ben to fall to us and more then glad he did. Ben has exceeded my expectations of him so far. A Super Bowl win in his second year. I thought Ben would lead us to a Super Bowl win in his career. I just didn't think it would be this soon.

Your right Ben has the right to make his own selfish choices. But I think thats unfair to the organization that drated him and gave his chance to play in the NFL. I also think it would be unfair to his teammates that are counting on him to lead this team. I'm not mad at Ben. Thats just how I feel.

and i understand your point on this issue. But just think about this what if your boss at your job started telling you what you can and cannot due. Your fellow co workers depend on your just as much as bens teammates depend on you. I'm not saying heres the keys the busa benny show kellen up do wheelies and act as stupid as you want. All i'm saying is life is all about choices if his choice is to ride even after the accident let him ride. But I hope he slips the helmet on.

Thats a good point. But I did have to give something up when I started working with my current employer three years ago. I used to smoke weed alot. But the company I work for gives their employees drug tests. So I stopped smoking weed. So really my company does tell if I can or can't do certain things. Granted smoking weed is illeagal and riding a motorcyle is not. I know I'm comparing apples to oranges. Maybe I should compare my situation to Ricky Williams. Sorry

For the record, riding a motorcycle without a license is illegal, so what Ben did was indeed breaking the law.
