Who's the Victim Here?

My family settled in for a double header afternoon of football.  Our Chicago Bears vs. perennial rival Green Bay Packers plus the New York Jets vs. Pittsburgh Steelers. Needless to say, the day was a disaster since both of the favored teams lost and the Packers and Steelers will meet in Super Bowl XLV.

In the post game discussions, I heard talk about all that Steeler Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had "been through". The reference is to Roethlisberger's off season trobles. Ben was accused of sexual assault on two different women. He was never charged with a crime but the NFL felt there was sufficient evidence to discipline him. Why he was never charged and was that the right decision is another question.

I just want to say for the record, in my opinion, Ben Roethlisberger is not the victim here.
