Steelers Fans Still Unhappy With Roethlisberger

Welcome Back Almost All Yunz Stillers

Ben Roethlisberger should get used to seeing messages like this one that appeared on the marquee of a local business just outside of St. Vincent College in Latrobe, where the Steelers reported for training camp on Friday.

It's no surprise that many fans feel the Steelers should have parted ways with Roethlisberger prior to the NFL Draft. After all, they dumped former Super Bowl hero Santonio Holmes due to substance abuse issues, and for a mere fifth-round pick.

If fans are genuinely convinced that the repeated allegations of rape directed at Roethlisberger are true, it's no wonder they feel disgusted with the quarterback they once viewed as a franchise godsend.

It will be interesting to see how Roethlisberger is received at the Steelers' first preseason game at Heinz Field on August 14th. He already said in an interview on Friday that he is worried that many among the Steelers faithful will greet him with boos.

It looks like he should be.
