Sports-minded folks have been talking a lot about the allegations against Ben Roethlisberger and details of the Milledgeville, Ga., incident. We heard what Art Rooney had to say on the matter, and we all have opinions on guilt and to what degree he acted as a predator versus in negligence.

So pretend you get to be the one who drops the disciplinary action. What do you do?

I say four games. My reasoning is expanded in my recent article, Suspend Ben Roethlisberger Under The Team Policy , but it hinges on where responsibility lies. A suspension of up to four games falls under the team policy, whereas a suspension beyond four games must come from the league.

If you have any other stipulations to the suspension, such as counseling, etc., please share your comments.
