[QUOTE]"but if you bounce him from the league what do you do with Brandon Marshall? This guy is ten times worse than Ben" "It would take a while but you'd get rid of the gangbanging thugs the league has right now."
Well, I thought this was a discussion about Big Ben?! I guess theres a lot too the NFL I dont know about....What did B.Marsh do, and I am not being sarcastic, I am just ignorant to his off field issues, cuz I only care for Sports not Drama, and I only know about Ben cuz it was everywhere, but what did Marshall do worst than raping someone? and what gangbanging thugs do you know who go to college on a full athletic S.ship and then go the NFL, there may be a few nuckleheads in the league, but gangbanging Thugs??? thats a bit harsh, only guy close to that is M.Harrison, and he aint do a day for that...so how true is it? I personally beleive he did it, but thats the Police job, if they drop the ball, or players have good lawyers, so BE it...the NFL shouldnt be butting in and making it worse, they are not the police...this should be on another board, not Front Burner (Pats) btw...Cheery all!

I'm not sure if you have any kids but it sounds like you don't. I don't really care myself what these guys do off the field (drama to you) but when my/millions of kids look up to them I expect a little more self control or punishment.
As for my terminalogy you can take it or leave it but there's hundreds of dumb azz high school kids that run a 4 second 40, are 6-4 and have hands like glue that get full scolarships and special treatment all through school and yes, make it into the NFL.
Are you from this country?
They have ridiculous majors and traveling tutors and amazingly enough they all pass and get a degree?????
Now I know this post was on Ben and he got what Goddell thought he deserved. He wasn't convicted in criminal court but he was still suspended because of his questionable behavior and how it affects the NFL and it's fans (kids).
Now Killa has a good point, they had a chance to make the point I'm looking for and blew it, they never should have let Vick back and Ben should've been suspended for an entire season.
Oh, and don't forget this little paech of a human being. Would you want your kids looking up to this maggot or Tedi Bruschi?Marshall's transgressions
