    Good idea if you're a career criminal like Rapistburger. Suck up to the cops as much as possible.

    Some people must be smoking there lunch.

    This a charitable foundation, no different than any other athletes foundation. It is run by a professional company that manages charities. In reading the eligibility requirements. Looks like a way to drum up fans for the Stillers.

    "ELIGIBILITY: K-9 units of police and fire departments in Pittsburgh, PA and in the city of each regular season away game for the Steelers in the 2012-13 season are eligible. The 2012 cycle will also award grants to two cities anywhere in the U.S. that would not otherwise be eligible (must be non-NFL market cities) if the Steelers go to the playoffs."

    Dude, I know you are British and I actually enjoy your posts on here. But we just had us an election over here in the colonies where one of our political parties shot itself in the foot over comments made by 2 Senate candidates regarding the "legitimacy", etc. of rape.

    No woman wants to be RAPED, even in a post-"50 Shades of Grey" world. Neither does any woman relish the ordeal faced by the plaintiff in a rape case (defense attorneys publically go over and after their lifestyle/sexual history like starving dogs - that's what they're paid to do). This is why many rape plaintiffs drop charges. Ben most likely had charges dropped in the GA case (and others I think, I'm no expert on Ben's off-field history) for precisely this reason. No woman would make even the initial accusation unless they experienced other than fully consensual sexual contact.
    Ben used his status to attract female attention and then behaved in ways that were not perceived by his accusers as fully consensual. The GA case w/ the drunk college kid I find particularly egregious, much as I found Bill Clinton and Paula Jones or Monica L. Pick on someone your own size, boys!!

    I don't doubt that Ben behaved at least boorishly and quite likely criminally in his sexual assault/rape incidents. He has a history of being an asshole when out in public. It has permanently affected my perception of him and the desirability of his obvious football talents.

    The thing w/ police dogs he has been doing for a while in every community in which he plays, and good for him.
    It is a worthy gesture even considering the obvious p.r. motivations that in part motivate it.

    I'm glad I won't have to watch him tomorrow from Sec 527, for any number of reasons.

    Sorry, guy, but the brother, husband, and father in me had to pipe up. GO RAVENS and peace out.

    I think he's a rapist, at best he's sexually aggressive in a way that I find incredibly unethical. If he were a Raven I would go back to cheering for the Niners like I did before 1996 until he left town, and maybe longer considering what it would mean to this organizations ethics to keep a person like that on the team, just like I vowed to do when there were rumors swirling that the Ravens were interested in Michael Vick.

    There are some athletes who's failings as people override my ability to see past them and continue to cheer for the laundry.
    I feel the same way. In fact there are a few Ravens that I stopped rooting for after certain facts came out about them. No need to mention names. Just think of DUI's and domestic assault and you'll know which guys I'm talking about.

    Ya know, after seeing that pic I'd avoid public restrooms for a while if I were Joe.

    It does go both ways though. Rich athletes are a prime target for women to get with then file a false rape claim in attempt to get a settlement. There are websites for women to track down and talk about pro athletes. IE, http://www.balleralert.com.
