I guess the difference is there were witnesses and he was arrested. Had he just allegedly raped three women...

Yeah, having evidence to press charges is a big difference from not having evidence.

Why? OJ's case went to trial, right? That's a little different than a clearly motivated district attorney admitting he couldn't bring forth enough evidence to even bother pressing charges.

People bring up Ben as an example of how the Steelers let things slide, yet he was still suspended 6 games for being innocent (as recommended by the Rooneys to Goodell). A better example would be Harrison not getting trouble for an altercation with his wife, but nobody's smart enough to bring that up - instead they focus on Roger Goodell trying to substitute his judgement for the legal system.

Then again, this is a franchise that traded away their Super Bowl MVP WR in his prime for next to nothing after he failed a drug test, so I'm not sure that'd be a convincing argument anyway.

No he didn't and that's precisely my point. He didn't go on record as having been in trouble but he did face a small suspension (school enforced) from failing a drug test. which Which Meyer explained away his absence as 'having an injury.'. Percy Harvin embodied that urban Meyer attitude at Florida. He could do almost anything he wanted Without facing consequences including assaulting an assistant coach.

A lot of stories broke after Meyer left about the undisciplined way he ran the program. There are dozens of stories are broke about Percy Harvin at Florida. Here's one of them.

So how does their QB get accused of Rape and keep his spot after settling out of court? Seems like Pittsburgh is full of it.

Accused and actually committing the crime are two different things. Also I don't believe they settled anything out of court because he was never formally charged.

Because Roethlisberger is good and Chris Rainey is not.

Ben has won multiple super bowls and is one of maybe 10 franchise qbs in the league. Rainey touches the ball 3 or 4 times a game and is a 4th string RB on the team. Its really not hard to understand.

Do you know how many games Percy missed? Many of them due to mysterious injuries? You have no idea how much he was or wasn't punished for any of those incidents. Outside of the drug test (which he was punished for), the other 'incidents' were alleged. And the 'victim' of one of them said the incident was overblown, and if you read the article, punishment was doled out. But keep telling yourself what you want to hear. Did Stephen Garcia just embody the Spurrier attitude at USC?

No one here has mentioned James Harrison. Beat his girlfriend and faced no discipline. I'm sure it has nothing to do with him being one of the stars of their defense.
