I want to be very clear about Roethlisberger’s inclusion and prominence on this list – he dominated several months of headlines and caused a great amount of grief for himself and the Pittsburgh Steelers organization. That said, my humanity is far stronger than a trite hatred for a sports franchise …..

I hope Ben Roethlisberger puts this entire debacle in the past, while resuming a Hall of Fame career. I hope he plays GREAT football and continues to be a key cog in the Steelers and Ravens rivalry. I will expect nothing less …..
