Greasy Al will take him for his first rounder and then sue the league to overturn the suspension.

I never said that ever, but you consider underage to be 21.

This sets a dangerous precedent. If they didn't already, gold diggers everywhere will smell blood in the water.

How hard would it really be to get a couple of girlfriends together and ruin a high profile player's life with a simple little story (not that it doesn't happen already)? The Commish is stating now that you need nothing more than a few drunk or potentially insane women (what the hotel worker in Vegas has been labelled) to make a statement against you, NOT press charges, and he'll see to it that you are punished and your reputation is ruined.

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not in any way trying to defend Ben here. He sure seems sleazy based on what we've heard third and fourth hand.....but who wouldn't when you only get one side of the story? Either way, I don't have a clue what's going on with him and these girls. I just find it a little questionable the way the league can decide your fate (weeks earlier than they said they would) on what could potentially be nothing more than a simple lie thrown out there with nothing to back it up.

If it were only this one time I am sure the suspension would be much less if at all.

To be fair, I believe goodell had access and cooperation from the investigation team in the case. They may have not acquired enough evidence to convict in a court or law, but there may have been enough there to convince goodell that Ben did something wrong.

Completely understand that. But, in today's day and age especially with technology and social networking, it's easier than ever for "bitter ex's" to take advantage of this type of system.

Got a few girlfriends from college in different states? Or simply a few sympathetic facebook friends living around the country? Calling all friends - please help me ruin this guy's life. All you need to do is call up your local media and give them the juicy details of that girl's night out where you saw so and so in that nightclub. I know it sounds like a conspiracy theory or whatever....but, really, what are we going on here? Two women's stories that nobody else can verify, with no criminal or civil proceedings of any kind? One was drunk and admitted her memory was hazy and the other was supposedly a mental case?

Maybe it's just because I've studied and worked in law my whole life, so I need to investigate and see some form of hard evidence.....but I don't like where this is headed. Too easy to abuse this system IMO.

It's all become public now, so they have no access to anything we don't have access to. I personally haven't seen any real smoking guns. Closest thing was the hand written police report, but I can run up to a cop today and give one of those about anyone.

Saw a crawler on ESPN. Steelers looking for a top 10 pick for Rapistberger. Maybe sleazy Al will pick him up. I wouldn't give a first rounder for the guy.
