    Big Ben not elected a Steelers captain

    http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/B...captain-090610

    Beleaguered Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will not serve as one of the team's captains this season.

    A captain the previous season, Roethlisberger was not selected by the team to reprise the role. He will be suspended for the first four games for violating the league's personal conduct policy.


    The team named tight end Heath Miller, wide receiver Hines Ward, linebacker James Farrior and special teamer Keyaron Fox as the four captains.

    Roethlisberger was suspended for six games in April, but NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said at the time he would review the player's behavior over the next few months. Goodell was satisfied that the quarterback has followed the league's guidelines and stayed out of trouble and later reduced the suspension.

    Roethlisberger was accused of sexually assaulting a Georgia college student following a night of drinking in a Milledgeville, Ga., bar on March 5. He was not charged by Georgia authorities.

    The league said the ''reinstatement is contingent on Roethlisberger continuing to adhere to the program established by our advisors and avoiding any further violations of the personal conduct policy.''

    Roethlisberger also is being sued in Nevada by a woman who says he sexually assaulted her there in 2008. No charges were brought in that case, and it did not figure in the NFL's suspension.
    Ouch if thats not a slap in the face!!!

    He's suspended for the first 4 games and can't even be at the facility. What did you expect?

    Ward and Miller are much more appropriate captains. Ben has not shown he is a leader.

    I agree with it! I am just saying hopefully this will also be a reality check for him.

    Heath Miller is the consummate professional football player. He does his job day in and day out, never has a sour word for anyone, and kicks ***. what a guy, definitely my favorite steeler.

    I agree on the captain picks... Ben should not have been named captain this year because of the 4 games he wont be there. But if he was so disliked in the locker room it makes you wonder how he was elected captain last year. -HHHMMM-

    I think Ben sure looked like a leader when he led his team to a Super Bowl game winning TD......I understand why he isn't captain while on suspension but when he is off suspension I'm sorry then Ben should have his captain role back.........

    Good for Heath! He earned this honor. Ben isn't going to be there for the first month, why would he be elected captain? As I understand it he doesn't actually count against the 53 man roster right now.
