    If he wore a helmet his face would not be in such bad condition.
    He should be lucky that he didnt break his neck when he flew over the handle bars like someone I know.

    Im saying its like smoking in that is a legal risk a person is taking. Not that bike riding without a helmet is the same as cigarette smoking. Both are pretty bad for your health but legal to do.

    Ah, OK gotcha.

    I actually wrote a paper while in college discussing why/how the U.S. could legally outlaw the production and purchasing of cigarettes. I think it was pretty convincing.

    ... and the reason they won't is they can't live without all those tax dollars.

    First of all, let's hope Ben is OK. Second, I am disappointed Ben's lack of judgement....he has a responsibility to himself AND the other players (think of the receivers they drafted to work WITH Ben). Third, too bad it wasn't Carson Palmer on that motorcycle.

    I plan on it, but it won't matter...Steeler fans are Steeler fans.

    However, I can't be low and cold like them.

    I wonder if Steeler fans believe in Karma? Sadly, this is what Karma can do. They celebrate Carson's leg getting snapped like a twig and laugh and mock.

    They're not laughing now.

    Neither am I.....I hope Ben makes a full recovery and has no long-term permanent damage from this.

    according to www.pittsburghlive.com he has suffered serious injuries to both knees, a broken jaw, and lost most of his teeth. Terrible news, this could be the end of his football career.

    all for riding a motorcycle. Owning one and riding it on rural/country roads would be OK but it it is high risk to ride them in urban areas, they are too vulnerable and often hard to see as well.

    How's his thumb?

    Sorry.....his knees were already not in the greatest shape. This won't help.

    You stay classy, Pittsburgh.

    Too bad...if his knees are in as bad a shape as it sounds, he's in definite big time trouble.

    This won't be the end of his football career but it will certainly make things more interesting in the AFC North.

    With Big Ben and Palmer recovering from serious injuries, the division is up for grabs. It was essentially the Steelers to lose, now they may be running Kerry Collins/Charlie Batch out for the first three weeks.

    Re: Roethlisberger injured in motorcycle accident

    I live in California and helmets are mandatory here. I had to give a lecture at Iowa State recently and couldn't believe the number of college students A) on motorcycles and B) without helmets. They were running around everywhere on them with their girlfriends on back, didn't see one with a helmet.

    A number of my family members ride motorcycles and they all wear helmets. My personal reasoning is that just like in a car, you WILL have an accident at some point. When that accident occurs wouldn't you prefer having a helmet. My brother has an old helmet of his with the back side missing all its paint from his head running along the cement in a relatively mild accident.

    I know a few people who have raced motorcycles, both motocross and road racing. They all have said the same thing, they love to ride them, but none of them would ride one on the street. Too many stupid people not paying attention out there.
