I didn't see that report. My uncle lives near Milledgeville, and he told my mom that bars can admit underage patrons. They stamp their hands or something, and they are not supposed to be served alcoholic beverages, but still, that's just asking for trouble.

Of course, it's entirely possible that my uncle is wrong about the law, but he seemed pretty confident that he knew what he was talking about.

This is what I've heard and I'm not at all surprised. Local talk radio down here has been painting the girl as an innocent babe in the woods who had no guilt whatsoever in the event.

Edit: I don't want that to sound like I'm excusing Roethlisberger. I think he's a louse. But I also realize he's a football player and, as a group, they a track record of some really lousy behavior.

The longer this goes on, the more he looks bad. I still think he needs suspended but how long is the question.

It is clear that the Steelers are really pissed. I think that the league will give him 4 weeks off and the team will add 2 or 3 more. Any less and everyone will say that he gets special treatment because he is the qb, or because he's white, or because he has won 2 super bowls already and is a hero.

This season is a mess, the team in chaos, no matter the punishment because this immature player thinks that the rules don't apply to him. Arrogant, stupid, reckless, immature, you pick the appropriate term here. He doesn't deserve the elevated place in the minds and hearts of real Steeler fans.

Yeah it does screw things up. Now that all the gory details are out, I don't really want to root for him.
