With his paycheck I'm sure that it wouldn't matter much to him, but I assume he'd be fined some amount for willingly missing a game?
By Ben making the decision to miss this game if it comes down to that since the game with Baltimore is extremely important and could ultimately determine if the Steelers win the division and get a bye week in the playoffs or just make the playoffs and have to go on the road is something not myself in particular but I am fairly certain other Steelers fans are going to have a big big problem with. And the bottom line is if the Steelers dont win the game next Sunday here at home with the Ravens they have absolutely ZERO CHANCE to win this division. This Steelers team is simply not good enough to beat a team like the Ravens or many other good teams in the AFC without Ben Roethlisberger playing.
The Steelers would never fine ben for missing agame for the birth of his son what planet are you on? Many star players have asked permission to miss agame to witness the birth of there childeren there are federal laws garunteeing that employers grant time off for child birth and illness.
Contrary to the notion that we can't beat the Ravens without ben is nonsense it will be harder but not impossible have you seen there defense this year i could rush for a100 yards on them. The Ravens are 6-2 but not for long there second half schedule is tough not like there first 8 games cleveland and cincinnatti

Maybe Ben's wife will pull a Mrs Ripken and have their kids on off days.
