Now that we know Ben Roethlisberger will indeed be suspended for at least four games of the NFL season, the next question becomes: Will he fight it?
ESPN's Chris Mortensen says he won't appeal the suspension.
Ben previously has told Steelers & league he will accept punishment; he would have to initiate any challenge by union. Don't expect that.
This jives with other reports that have been floating around. Roethlisberger did not have a union presence at his meeting with Commissioner Goodell last week so the lack of an appeal wouldn't be a surprise.
Also of note is that this suspension is coming from the NFL and not the Steelers. So if Roethlisberger wanted to appeal it, Goodell would be the one hearing the appeal.
