PFT Confirms suspension announcement on Steelers Roethlisberger not coming till at least Wednesday

Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports! has some serious egg on his face right now, as it seems more and more that it was just wishful thinking that an announcement about a suspension for QB Ben Roethlisberger would be coming down the pike yesterday or today.

Pro Football Talk confirms that today will NOT be the day we hear about a suspension, and the earliest it could come would be tomorrow.

On Sunday night, Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reported that the NFL is expected to announce a suspension of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on Monday or Tuesday.

It didn’t happen on Monday. Now, Adam Schefter of ESPN says it’s definitely not coming today, and that the earliest it will happen is Wednesday.

We’ve heard that teams who play the Steelers want the decision to be made and announced before the draft. Though it’s borderline ridiculous to think that teams could make draft decisions based on whether they’ll play the Steelers with Roethlisberger or someone else at quarterback, coaches crave information — and the teams who’ll be playing the Steelers early in the season want to know before the picks start what they’ll be facing when they face the Steelers.

Cole stated late Sunday night that the announcement would be made on Tuesday. Then the article was changed to say it could come on Monday, but it didn’t happen. Now it looks as if we’ll have to wait at least another 24 hours to see just how long it’ll be that the league sits the QB.

    (WITH MULTIPLE WITNESSES!!!!!) To something shady going down with that HALF PASSED OUT 20yr old college girl!!!! Ben “Take the PU$$%” Roethlisberger aka Pepe Le Pew should be in orange jumpsuits right now and you know it. THE TAPE GOT ERASED? AFTER THE POLICE HAD IT AND DIDN’T MAKE A COPY…….. YEH RIGHT!!…….. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The state of Georgia’s monthlong investigation into a rape accusation leveled against Ben Roethlisberger uncovered an allegation by a second woman that the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback forced himself upon her. The incident allegedly occurred during a party at Roethlisberger’s house in central Georgia.

    According to one, Nicole Biancofiore, the alleged victim “did not want to report the incident to a random police officer,” the case file shows.
    Ms. Biancofiore called a friend, Baldwin County Sheriff’s Deputy Shawn Tapley, to ask for advice. He told her to report to an officer downtown.
    “Biancofiore also stated that [the woman] did not want to report it because she did not want people to know about the incident and was embarrassed by what had happened.”

    “Big ben” got off this time, the other time…and lord knows how many other times he’s been given a pass. It’s time to call a rapist, “a rapist”. This guy belongs behind bars!
