Pittsburgh Steelers star Ben Roethlisberger will not appeal his recent suspension by the NFL, even though he "committed no crime," he said in a statement.
The QB just issued a statement regarding his six-game suspension for his actions in Milledgeville, Ga., during which Big Ben was accused of sexual assault.
Charges were not filed as sufficient proof could not support the claims of the unnamed Ben Roethlisberger accuser. Still, what's clear is he is a shady dude.
In his statement, Ben says: "I am accountable for the consequences of my actions."
GOING FOR TWO: Borderline sexual assaults, that is. Creep.
"Though I have committed no crime," he continues, "I regret that I have fallen short of the values instilled in me by my family ... I will not appeal the suspension and I will comply with what is asked of me - and more."
The player's statement concludes: "I am disappointed that I have reached this point and will not put myself in this situation again. I appreciate the opportunities I have been given in my life and will make the necessary improvements.”
So if he wasn't suspended... it would all be good? How devastating for him to miss games. Not the most apologetic of apologies, dog.
