NFL Still Not Ready to Make Decision on Ben Roethlisberger Punishment
It is being reported that NFL commisioner Roger Goodell will make an announcement on a punishment for Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger this week, possible as early as Tuesday.
When asked if he would announce Roethlisberger’s suspension Monday or Tursday, Goodell did not give a decisive answer, saying, “There may be plenty of reports. I make the decision when I’m prepared to do so”.
Goodell was also asked if there was a violation of the NFL’s personal conduct policy by Roethlisberger, to which Goodell responded, “Yes, there has been a violation of that. The issue is respect to a pattern of behavior [and] bad judgments”.
Goodell stated that he still needed more time to review all the facts before he could come to a conclusion on Roethlisberger’s punishment. Stay tuned.
