I love how the majority of sheep in this country get fooled by anything they hear on television, especially when they hear a story from a drunk girl who accused a man of rape.

Naturally, everyone plays the 'poor little girl' card, when in fact, she was 20, NOT 13, and is capable of making adult decisions, just as a 20 year old female would if she were in the army and fighting in Iraq. Last I checked, neither I, nor just about 99.9% of the men in the world ask for a girls ID when they meet at a bar. That isn't my responsibility at all, nor was it Ben Roethlisberger's.

Roethlisberger was NEVER CHARGED with ANY crime whatsoever. Just hearsay and drunken lies from a girl portrayed as if she were Jodie Foster in 'The Accused'.

Yet Big Ben gets a 4 game suspension based on this garbage, reduced from 6. So, who pays the price do you ask? If your answer is "The Fans" then you guessed right, cause now all of those 66,000 people who paid good money to see a full NFL product at Steelers home games are being screwed by getting to see a back-up QB run the Steelers instead of a 2 time SB winning player.

Maybe Roger Goodell should give all those fans a discounted ticket price for this malady.

And yet I love the fact that neither Shaun Rogers, who brought a LOADED GUN into an airport, nor Vince Young who clubbed a man in the face at a strip club, get no suspension at all.

This is hypocrisy at it's best.
