    I'm sorry to hear about Ben. Hopefully he'll be back in time for Sam Adams to get a shot at his knee on Sept. 24.
    Good quesiton.....

    $$$ - Nice little boon for local and state governements on those tickets.

    Cigarettes are really bad for you but are legal. I think its mostly what the govt can make the most. With tobacco, its the sin taxes.

    Difference is, I think Big Ben dodged a major bullet compared to Winslow and JDub. Unless something else is reported later, it doesnt sound like he has anything broken.

    Seeing that he is in surgery, my guess would be that there are plenty of things broken. They aren't going to worry about that until they get his head fixed though, so i'm sure he hasn't been though any xrays or anything of that nature.

    Just wow. That is awful. And yes, I hate the Steelers, but not the players as people. Tragic. I hope he is OK.

    I honestly thought Roethlisberger was smarter than this.

    I feel awful to see him get injured like this -- but, at the same time, just have to marvel at the idiocy and immaturity of this kind of decision. He's a multi-millionaire and a Super Bowl champion in only his 2nd season of professional sports. If he keeps improving, he has the chance to become one of the best. To risk it all for a thrill is just mind boggling.

    I hope for a speedy recovery and a great start to the season for him.

    Many players have clauses in their contracts specifically banning activities like riding a motorcycle.

    In my misbegotten youth, I had to lay my motocycle down to avoid getting splattered by a 80 yr. old lady who didn't see me. My helmet-covered head bounced off a curb. My helmet got a big split in it. I got a mild concussion.

    Re: Roethlisberger injured in motorcycle accident

    I think the real concern here might be for potential swelling of the brain. I seem to remember that Dennis Weathersby had that problem when he had his car accident, although I might be mistaken. I think one possible treatment is to remove a portion of the skull to relieve pressure, placing the removed piece in the abdomen to keep it supplied with blood until the swelling goes down.

    I hope it's not that bad, but whatever it is, I suspect he's going to be handled with caution for a while. Head injuries can cause a lot of problems for a football player. I hope he's alright.

    updated info from that link:
    According to a police source, Roethlisberger suffered a broken jaw, broke his left sinus cavity, suffered a 9-inch laceration to the back of his head, lost many teeth and has severe injuries to his knees from hitting the pavement.

    A plastic surgeon has been called in, the source said.

    I guess he won't be a pretty boy anymore. I wonder if the joy of riding motorcycles without a helmet was all worth it (or riding them at all). There are way to many stupid drivers in cars out there for me, and the car is always going to win.

    Also sounds like the Steelers could be in need of a QB for the fall.

    ochre's quote doesn't sound like Ben will be playing anytime soon. Good luck with the rehab. Bengals fans try to take the high road with this one. Some Steelers fans took the low road with the Palmer thing, lets try to show some class as an example to those mouth breathers
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    How exactly do you break a sinus cavity?
