I dunno. Maybe we need to hear his side of the story first :pop:

Wait, did he say that? Why is it dumb? Maybe for saying it about his fanbase, but not in a vacuum. Also he'll find work elsewhere, the Steelers need him more than he needs them at this point. Thats hard to believe.

Yeah, unless he's willing to inform of us of any inside info he has, he just shouldn't say anything at all. I personally think it would be hypocritical to assume Roethlisberger is innocent and lewis guilty. But I certainly would never want to come off as defending Lewis cause I don't know what happened.

Here's the tweet: "It's sad that all the Steeler fans who get upset when people speak on Ben's situation continually bring up Ray Lewis' case. #glasshouse"

Yup, because Ray Lewis actually pled guilty to obstruction of justice (in a murder case no less). That's exactly the same as never being brought up on charges at all :face:

I really wish college athletes would actually use the free education they received.

All I see Clark saying is don't convict Ray Lewis of being a murderer and then defend staunchly that Ben is not a rapist. You can defend Ben, but don't go around blasting other players for past indiscretions. I can respect what he says.

They're both guilty of being pretty sketchy people, that's for sure.

Mark madden just tweeted it, and I agree, the biggest issue is Clark brought up bens past for no reason except to defend ray Lewis. What a terrible teammate

Yeah, i normally don't have an issue with this but to bring up a teammates past like that just to further your own argument is pretty bad.

I think he's right, but not sure why he said it. There was nothing to gain.

I agree with Idoit. He's not wrong, but when your teammate is the example that is :face:

OK I can see what he's saying. It's like a ballpark thing. Hes Not saying its equal, just that they're similar (if accusations against Ben are true).

Still a bad move on RCs part
