    Ben Roethlisberger get's 6 game suspension

    Roethlisberger officially suspended for six games - Shutdown Corner - NFL Blog - Yahoo! Sports

    Not sure why Ben get's 6 games when Vick only got 4.

    In other news, there are TONS of rumors flying around that Ben is going to get traded before tomorrows draft. I'll give them the 49ers GM's number if it will help. I'd take Ben in a second.

    The Vick suspension was prior to the Goodell era, wasn't it?

    The way I see it, the league is making an example out of Ben.

    I hope my team (Rams) does not try to trade for him. I'll give them Al Davis' number if it will help.

    Vick missed a lot more than 4 games and it was during the Goodell era. Vick got a 4 game suspension after being reinstated to the NFL.

    Roethlisberger was suspended 6 but it could be reduced to 4.

    Vick missed more, this is true ... but it's because HE WAS IN JAIL!!! Not condoning with Ben did, and just because he wasn't charged doesn't mean he didn't do it. I totally get that.

    I think that 6 games is probably accurate for Ben, I'm just saying that if you get 6 games for being accused, you should get more for being convicted.

    This also isn't the first time Big Ben has had off the field issues.

    I think it's one game for every $100k he pays them off to drop the charges.

    Punishments are not only for the person deserving it, but for everyone else to take note and adjust their lifestyles. Ben ignored this advice, gets a worse punishment.
