Benson Goes To Jail, But Only Gets 3 Game Suspension

7

"He was sentenced last month after striking deals for two misdemeanor assault cases stemming from separate incidents in Austin, Texas (the last one occurred two months ago during the lockout). He eventually served five days in jail just before the start of the season. " You don't need me to tell you that Goodell hates the Steelers. It's blatantly clear. There were NO CHARGES brought against Ben Roethlisberger, because there was NO EVIDENCE that he did anything wrong. I don't know what transpired in that bathroom, but Ben was only found guilty in the tabloids. Benson, on the other hand, is actually guilty of multiple crimes, and yet he gets a shorter suspension than Ben. All Steelers fans know that this is utter bull%#$@, so it hardly needs to be repeated ... but boy does this feel like a slap in the face.
