It's hard to find a fitting punishment when the full extent of the offense remains unknown, but NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had to take action against Ben Roethlisberger and the four-to-six game suspension is about the best he could do.
Ben Roethlisberger's alleged transgressions have placed him in a group of former Pittsburgh Steelers who the Rooney family saw fit to unload to maintain the team's values. And like those before him, Roethlisberger is likely on his way out of the Steel City.

The suspension handed down from Roger Goodell may be tough to swallow, but Ben Roethlisberger need only look to another star quarterback to see how league mandated punishment can help a talented player mature.
