In the article “Roethlisberger could face punishment from NFL” by Greg Bluestein, Ray Henry, and Joe Mandak, talks about the “relations” that, Pittsburg Steelers quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger supposedly had in Georgia with a college student. Although it seems he has cleared the legal trouble since there was no conclusive evidence, the league is ready to punish the unacceptable behavior. He has been reminded by fans, coaches, teammates, and commissioners that he will have to work hard to regain their respect and trust. I feel that this is a) very irresponsible and b) immature, but on the other hand I think that this is another case where the pedestal that the celebrities are put on cause the downfall of him/ her in the end. The unfortunate thing is that the non-celebrities create that pedestal just to see how fast and hard they crash and burn.
