Ben Roethlisberger Officially Suspended

4/21/2010 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ben Roethlisberger Officially Suspended Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has just  received a SIX game suspension from the NFL for violating the league's Personal-Conduct Policy.

A spokesperson for the NFL announced that Ben has been informed of the decision.

Officials claim the suspension could be reduced to 4 games, if NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sees fit.

Ben will not be paid for the games he will miss -- which means he could lose nearly $3 million if he misses all six.

Along with the suspension, Ben will also have to undergo a comprehensive behavioral evaluation.

In a letter to Roethlisberger, Commish Goodell told Ben, "There is nothing about your conduct in Milledgeville that can remotely be described as admirable, responsible, or consistent with either the values of the league or the expectations of our fans.”

Fan    

to all you idiots who thinks he did it. There are only two people who knows what or what did not happen.



Grant it he should have known better not to but drink for underage girls (if he did) but also NOBODY FORCED THE DRINKS DOWN THE GIRLS THROATS! She stated in her statement she was Teased by him, if she did not like it WHY THE HELL DID SHE STAY? IF HER FIRENDS WERE SO CONCERN FOR HER SAFETY, WHY DID THEY GET A COP RIGHT THEN AND THERE. JUST A BUNCH OF HUNGRY COLLEGE SLUTS LOOKING FOR MONEY. ONLY REASON SHE QUIT SCHOOL WAS BECUASE SHE KNEW SHE WAS WRONG AND KNEW SHE WOULD GET HOUNDED FOR WHAT SHE ACCUSED HIM OF.



CAN'T CALL A GUY A RAPIST IF HE IS NOT CONVICTED.
