Football players on a team are a closely knit group of people as to them it is their second family.
However, even in the closest of families a person antics will wear thin on the rest of the family.
According to ProFootballTalk.com, Pittsburgh Steelers punter Daniel Sepulveda joined 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh, PA to talk about a variety of different subjects, which of course included Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Sepulveda stated this on Roethlisberger’s situation, “It’s regrettable to see him struggling in the media the way he has in putting himself in these positions. You know, it’s hard to comment on that kind of thing. We’re going to be there for him as teammates in any way we can be to help him through these deals. I don’t know, he’s a very capable quarterback obviously. My locker’s next to his in the game locker room, and that’s on business day, you know that’s game day. So I don’t think I’ve said more than a couple sentences to him in the three years that I’ve been here even though we locker next to each other, but you know it’s all business on game day so you can’t read into that. It’s tough to say, we’re gonna be there for him in any way that we can be, but you know it’s not cool to see him getting in trouble like this all the time.”
It is clear that Roethlisberger is starting to tick off his fellow teammates and if his teammates are aggravated then the front office has to be livid with him.
The Steelers are for now waiting to for the justice system to run its course, which means that if Roethlisberger is charged with the crime the Steelers will most likely play without him in 2010.
In the end, the only person that Roethlisberger has to blame for being in this situation is himself.
