big ben is an idiot. he's got a responsibility to the Rooneys, his coaches, his teammates, and Steeler fans. those people are all relying on him to be there to do his job as a QB in the NFL. he was warned repeatedly about the dangers of riding without a helmet and yet he still did it. and look what happened to him, he got seriously injured in a serious accident that has now jeopardized his future in the NFL.
you wanna see how selfishness like that can affect a whole lot of people, go ask the Celtics how long it took to recover from losing their 1st round draft pick to cocaine-induced caridac arrest (see Len Bias). more than a decade they wandered in the wilderness because Len did something stupid ONCE. and once was all it took to stop his heart.
what big ben did was selfish and stupid and deserving of sarcasm & ridicule. who died and made him beyond reproach anyway?... if i'm forced to endure morons on here mocking President Bush (who's doing his best to protect us from Al Qaeda and other enemies abroad trying to kill every american man, woman, and child that they can) with their signatures and avatars, i can tell you i am SURE AS HELL NOT GOING GIVE big ben a pass on how utterly stupid it was for him to ride without a helmet.
got that, smart guy? oh, i see you're from NM. sorry, if i'd noticed that earlier, i would have stuck to 1 syllable words only.
