doesn't say much though, but it's good to get him back into things.

I did like the way he said "you know what you are going to get in football"...
You can listen to it on the PG page and it sounded to me like he was saying "look out folks, I'm going to have a record year!"

couldn't tell ya...I don't hold on to things that long. But you're obviously right, his actions will need to match.

It's a step in the right direction, this is the first we've heard from Ben since this whole thing went down. Really the first we've heard from him at all since that statement he made in the locker room back when.

I'm glad to see him taking a positive approach to it all and doing all he can to make the changes that are necessary for him to move on to this new chapter in his life as he referred to it as.

I'm excited to see him come out this year and play well and watch all the Steeler fans who disowned him before, cheer and wave their towels again! :cope: Everybody deserves a second chance, Ben is taking full advantage of his so far. If this is any indication of his mindset then he's definitely on the right track.

i haven't disowned him either...but i'm on the fence, as he's been stupid before and made a statement...when it happened again, it started to sway my decision...so to me, his words mean nothing until he can prove that he can stay out of trouble and focus on football...so if he can make it through this season w/o being stupid again, then i'll know he's back and focused

Disowned was the proper word. A lot of people have disowned us since this happen. Everthing that has happened over the off season has shaken steeler nation to it's core and exposed what almost could be called bandwagoner fans.

I'm sure we will find out who the real fans are when the season starts but I think the reaction will be more like finding out your kid came home from school with head lice. You freak out momentarily and the you do what is necessary to deal with it--no matter how gross it is -- and then you move on. Right now, we freaked out and are dealing with it through these discussion boards, hopefully when the season starts we can all move on. :tt02:

Falcons OT Quinn Ojinnaka Suspended One Game
FOXSports.com's Jay Glazer reports that Atlanta Falcons offensive tackle Quinn Ojinnaka has been suspended one game by the National Football League for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Ojinnaka was arrested and charged with simple battery last May after he was involved in a domestic dispute with his wife over a female friend on his Facebook account.

No word on what ruling, if any, the courts made in the matter, but the suspension by the National Football League is a clear indicator that the legal process is complete.

It is unknown if these players actually participated in the event, and the player still under investigation may not have had any involvement in the charity golf tournament.

Lake Delton Sexual Assault Case Heads to DA's Office on Tuesday
Lake Delton Police Department investigators are expected to turn over their investigation of a sexual assault allegation against Green Bay Packers cornerback Brandon Underwood to the district attorney's office on Tuesday, Don Walker of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.

A decision on whether or not to press charges could be determined by Friday, Lake Delton Police Chief Tom Dorner tells the Journal-Sentinel.

Underwood was one of seven Packers staying at the Wilderness Resort Golf Cabins in Lake Delton after participating in a charity golf tournament hosted by Packers linebacker Clay Matthews in nearby Wisconsin Dells.

Two Milwaukee area women, ages 31 and 33, met the group of Packers at a local bar and returned to the condo.

All seven players were interviewed and released, with Underwood admitting to sexual contact with the women, which he claims was consensual.

try this - conduct policy, this was a strip bar... ben was in a normal drinkin hole....


The women were examined at different hospitals by nurses trained in gathering sexual assault evidence, Dorner said. He said he did not know the results. No weapons or restraints were used in the alleged assault, and investigators found no evidence of any drugs, including date rape drugs.

Police said all the Packers were drinking alcohol, but it was not clear if the women had been drinking.

"I suspect most everybody was probably consuming alcohol to some degree. To what degree, I don't think there was anyone who was passed out or totally inebriated," he said.

The women met several players at a Wisconsin Dells strip club, Dorner said. He said the women were patrons, not club employees. They drove back to the players' condo while at least some players took a shuttle bus from the club to the resort.

The women left the condo after the alleged assaults and contacted police from a nearby residence, Dorner said.

The NFL and the Packers are closely watching the case, which follows an offseason sexual assault investigation involving one of the league's stars, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Prosecutors did not charge Roethlisberger in that case, but the league suspended him for six games on April 21 for violating its personal conduct policy.

Packers CB Brandon Underwood Paid Money to Women
Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports that Lake Delton police have confirmed that money was exchanged between Green Bay Packers cornerback Brandon Underwood and the two women who have accused him of sexual assault.

According to a press release from Lake Delton Chief of Police Tom Dorner, "money was exchanged between the alleged suspect and the alleged victims before the alleged assault."

The district attorney is expected to receive the case today, and a decision on charges could be made by next week, Demovksy adds.

Underwood could potentially be charged with two counts of soliciting a prostitute.

Underwood apologized to his teammates, particularly the six who were interviewed by police as part of a sexual assault investigation, on Wednesday, and addressed the media.
