|Ben Roethlisberger has brought two championships to Pittsburgh, but has also faced two sexual assault allegations.|
"I am a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan. That being said, enough is enough. I honestly feel disappointed to the core by Ben Roethlisberger. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy what he has brought to the field with the Steelers. I also love the fact that the Steelers have won two Super Bowls with him at quarterback. However, the embarrassment that he has cast upon the organization and the fan base with his continuous acts of stupidity overwhelm me."
"There is a man in Pittsburgh who gets it, a man who understands what it means to deal with pressure and expectations, [and] a man who knows what it means to be the face of a franchise. That man is Sidney Crosby. Yes, that's right, the captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Ben Roethlisberger doesn't get it. Ben will never get it because he is too stupid to understand what Sidney Crosby has known since he was a child."
"I think 'a short leash' is an accurate description for most Steeler fans. It's been one thing after another with Ben, and as a fan, I wish for the Steelers to represent themselves with class and character both on and off the field. If this hasn't served as a wake up call for Roethlisberger, I'm not sure what might at this point. Perhaps a uniform change."
"Ben better shape up quick. All my life, we've seen the Steelers have hardly any off-field problems, then all of the sudden, Big Ben is nothing but a problem. If he doesn't mature and grow up quick, then get rid of him.
"Pittsburgh deserves much more than having Ben as the face of one of the proudest franchises in the history of the game. I don't think he understands how good he has it right now."
