Protestors welcome Big Ben to his first game back

Back in April, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended two-time Super Bowl winner and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Rothlisberger for the first six games of the season. Rothlisberger violated the NFL’s personal conduct policy after he was accused of sexual assault by a 20-year-old student at Georgia College & State University. This is the second accusation of its kind Rothisberger has been accused of.

Rothisberger’s first game back was today against the Cleveland Browns. Women’s rights groups gathered outside Heinz Field to protest Rothlisberger’s return. Some of the signs read: “Big Ben’s a Jagoff,” “Consent is Not a Game,” “No Means No,” and “Don’t Let Ben Rape Again.”

The Steelers beat the Browns, 28-10.
