Steelers QB Roethlisberger releases statement about suspension

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has released the following statement in regards to his four to six game suspension handed down last week by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell:

“The Commissioner’s decision to suspend me speaks clearly that more is expected of me. I am accountable for the consequences of my actions. Though I have committed no crime, I regret that I have fallen short of the values instilled in me by my family. I will not appeal the suspension and will comply with what is asked of me and more.

Missing games will be devastating for me. I am sorry to let down my teammates and the entire Steelers fan base. I am disappointed that I have reached this point and will not put myself in this situation again.

I appreciate the opportunities that I have been given in my life and will make the necessary improvements.”

    When are professional athletes going to realize that every move they make is in squarely in the limelight? I absolutely believe that Big Ben is sorry for his actions, I just happen to question the motive for his sorrow. Is he sorry because he got suspended or is he sorry that he was involved in the situation?
