We don't know much right now, perhaps we'll never know all that was said but at the very least he got a fresh hair cut.

Ben Roethlisberger gets a haircut before his meeting with Roger Goodell

Ben Roethlisberger arrived at NFL headquarters in New York City on Tuesday with a new look.
Gone was the slick-backed hair (http://www.usatoday.com/sports/football/nfl/steelers/2010-04-12-ben-roethlisberger-fred-bright_N.htm) he sported on Monday when he read a statement to TV cameras at the Steelers facility.
Roethlisberger, in New York to meet with commissioner Roger Goodell, had short, close-cropped hair.
TMZ has video (http://www.tmz.com/videos?autoplay=true&mediaKey=efcf0692-551a-4aef-9279-a21a7d9171a0) of Roethlisberger's new look. He said very little on his way into the building.
Update, 4:32 p.m. ET: Roethlisberger left the offices at NFL headquarters. He said he had a "very productive meeting" with Goodell, ESPN reported (http://twitter.com/Rachel__Nichols/status/12122829045). -- Sean Leahy

The Commish will decide later, there was no plan for Goodell to decide anything today

If he was going to be suspended by Goodell, I'm guessing we'd have heard about it by now. Somebody would have leaked it; they always do. This tells me that Goodell has spoken to the Rooney's and he feels whatever they have in mind is sufficient punishment enough after he read Ben the riot act. Then again we won't know for sure, but its something to consider. For all we know the Rooney's could very well have been in a conference call with Goodell and Ben there in New York.

In any event we'll know more at some point...

After that press conference, I think Ben is going to sit for a while...I'd be very surprised if its anything less than 4 games

no way... 1 game maybe.

0 games legally.

Community Service at a hospice, probable.

It's not going to be 4 games, the Rooney's have ways of laying down the law without hampering the team THAT much. 1-2 games at the most, enroll him in some type of counseling program, perhaps a fine of some sort and then go from there.

NFL Network said the commish may not announce his "punishment" until after the draft so the celebration stays on that day for the guys who are drafted. I have a feeling he will get 2-4 games, all eyes are on him and I know the players want a suspension of some kind...really its the right thing to do. I'm not happy about not having him for a few games but he needs some kind of punishment.....

I watched the Bradshaw interview and if everything he said is true. Ben owes him an apology. I know that the 70's were another era but Terry was just trying to mentor him a little and Ben slapped his hand away. Ben needs to learn that older guys like Bradshaw have been around the league one hell of a lot longer than him. Time to take that advice Ben! :rant2:

Its a new time in the world... "back in the day" things used to be like yes sir mr bradshaw. Now a Days its not a lack of respect its about the younger guys not wanting to live in the shaddows of the past and they have the urge to show everyone what "they have."

Ive had this conversation numerous times with my little brother. I being almost 32, is from the "old school" Bow down to the legends. Where as he is from, the past is the past, let me show you what i can do now in the present and dont compare us to them. For the longest time i would argue with him about it, until i found out most of his friends feel the same way.

I can see how it would rub Bradshaw the wrong way considering hes an "old school" guy. Its just a different time now-a-days...
