Fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers have been waiting to hear if running back Le'Veon Bell's suspension appeal will alter the 3-game suspension which was handed down months ago by the NFL league office. As commissioner Roger Goodell updated the media on the 'Deflategate' scandal and Tom Brady's suspension appeal, he was asked about Bell's appeal and where it stands.

His response was priceless.

"That appeal is not heard by me, I would have to get somebody else to get a timeline on that," Goodell said via Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

There you have it Steelers Nation, the process of the appeal is - unknown.

Goodell will certainly catch heat from this comment for those who follow the Steelers and have watched Brady's appeal being heard, and Greg Hardy's suspension reduced by 6-games. There has long been a feeling Goodell plays favorites with specific organizations and owners, and this will certainly not change those opinions form the general public.

It is assumed Bell's appeal will be heard before the regular season, but after Goodell's response today, the Steelers organization and fans everywhere are wondering if that will ever happen.
