“Road to Redemption”

As I sit with ESPN playing in the background, I catch a glimpse of a headline titled “Roethlisberger, Road to Redemption.”  Are they serious?  Do they honestly think winning a Super Bowl is going to help him “redeem” his image”?  The guy raped two chicks.  I’m sure the women that he assaulted are saying to themselves, “well I mean he did get me drunk and take advantage of me, but he won a Super Bowl for the Steelers, so everything’s alright.”   No.  Nothing is alright.  I personally don’t mind the Steelers.  I respect the way they play and after the Pats lost they were who I wanted to see represent the AFC.  But I will lose all respect for their fans if they wipe his slate clean for winning a championship.  What kind of message would that send to the kids?  “Now son, Ben made some mistakes but he won a Super Bowl for our city, so we forgive him.”  Same goes for you, Kobe.  The point I’m trying to make is, so what if you’re a professional athlete….you should be held to the same standards as normal, hardworking Americans.  Thank you and good night.
