    Big Ben wants his suspension reduced to 3 games

    Report: Roethlisberger's reps want 3 games - CBSSports.com

    isn't he toeing a pretty fine line here? Goodell could easily leave his suspension at 6 games. If Ben askes for too much, doesn't he run the risk of aggravating Roger?

    He had too much Viagara to reduce the suspension.

    With his leverage, it's like negotiating a severance package.

    Re: Big Ben wants his suspension reduced to 3 games

    wasnt he able to get it reduced to 4 games for "good" behavior? ... why ask for more when you've already been told how much ull get ... while i understand 3 games is the typical suspension of the league he needs to take whats given to him ...

    It needs to be expanded from 6 to the whole season.

    Re: Big Ben wants his suspension reduced to 3 games

    This is such a hard topic. I really, really don't like Ben, and wouldn't let any female I know within about 1000 feet of him, but he was not found guilty of anything. If the police didn't find sufficient cause to even arrest him, he kind of has a point here. I'm not sure how I feel about this.

    Yeah, well Ben Roethlisberger wants to drink like a champion.

    Exhibit A:


    Shut up and take your suspension.

    Good luck with that, Ben. Goodell is a hard***....and that's good for the league.

    Re: Big Ben wants his suspension reduced to 3 games

    It would be one thing if just Roethlisberger and his agent were involved in the appeal. What bothers me is that the Steelers are supposedly getting Rooney involved. It shouldn't be an issue with most owners lobbying for a reduction of the suspension, but the Rooneys have often been given special treatment in the league.

    He should be happy with if it's reduced to four. I could maybe see his point if it's first transgression but since it's his second he should be happy to get to play period.

    He's still guilty of being a complete doucher tho, this is just insult to that. If I was Roger, I'd counter with a 6 game suspension for asking for 3.

    Re: Big Ben wants his suspension reduced to 3 games

    Maybe we could get David Sims' suspension reduced from one game to one half.

    Ben should get 6 games now for trying to undermine Gooddell.
