It’s with reluctance that we even draw attention to this story. After all, we’re giving a link to the T.Ocho Show, which is on Versus but, judging off this clip, fails to live up to even public access television standards.

But we’re offering the pub because, recently on the show, Terrell Owens said Ben Roethlisberger’s suspension, when compared to Michael Vick’s suspension, was not fair. He didn’t offer any substantial explanation, though he hinted that race was a factor. (Chad Ochocinco, with more than a little hesitation, agreed.)

Neither player had any clue what they were talking about, and neither had anything insightful to say. But, they’re household names (in part because of shows like this), which means, odds are, most of you care.

So, here’s the clip.

The errors in this are egregious almost to the point of slanderous. Roethlisberger was not suspended for sexual assault – he was suspended for a pattern of off-field behavior that cast an unflattering light on the league. He’s never been charged with a crime (including in his motorcycle accident, which, by the way, has nothing to do with his character).

Race is always factor, people think just because they don't admit its factor then its not.  Instead they focus on other things, but the root is race.  As a matter of fact its so much of a factor ts normal and people don't really care anymore.

On the flipside Donte Stallworth killed someone in a car accident and didn't go to jail. So either they care more about dogs than humans. Or it was more important to send a black superstar to  jail not a role player.  Plaxico Burress shot himself, with a name like Plaxico I would shoot myself too, however I doubt if Big Ben shot himself he would serve Fed time. They would probably call it a hunting accident in a night club.

I agree.  I would never watch it either.  Sometimes, you might check out a show to see what it's about, but I wouldn't even do that with this show.  Who cares what they have to say.

Owens criticizes Roethlisberger suspension

Right, because we all know that if three people say it's true, then it must be. Ever heard of mass hysteria? It happens to little known people as well as big stars such as Roethlisberger. Should he have been trying to find college girls? Probably not. Could he have done it? Sure. But do not say that because three people agree, that it's absolutely true. He was being dumb. You know what parents do when you're being dumb? Teach you a lesson usually via punishment. That's exactly what he did. The T.O. comment is irrelevant. One because no one should care what T.O. says(or what I say for that matter) and Two because Michael Vick spent three years in prison. Roethlisberger never spent a day in jail and all charges were dropped which is the deciding factor in 4 games and indefinitely. Just because they're both idiots and different races doesn't mean race is a factor.

Oh yeah, those 3 women must all be lying, money hungry golddiggers just out to tarnish the name of an upstanding citizen. It's pretty telling that none of his teammates defended him when the allegations came out. Big Ben has had 3 women accuse him of sexual assault; I'm struggling to think of a starting QB, including Vick, that has had even 1 allegation. Favre sent pics of his genitals, yes, and has been scrutinized heavily by the media. Kerry Collins called Mushin Muhammad a racial slur, and was punched in the face for it. Vick served a year in federal prison and was banned indefinetely. I think it's safe to say the problem isn't with the women accusing Ben, but the actions of the man himself. Post a story when McNabb, Brady, Schaub, Rivers, etc. get accused of these things.

"odds are, most of you care"

From a Bengals fan...You're wrong, we don't care.  Never seen the show, nor will I.
