Pro football players sum up the state of the world when it comes to rape accusations

Pittsburgh Steelers are speaking out about the rape civil lawsuit filed against quarterback Ben Roethlisberger: They are angry about the allegations. Nose tackle Casey Hampton summed it up: "I know how the world is. In today's society, if anybody says anything, you're guilty until you're proven innocent. I know Ben and the type person he is, and I ain't even going to say anything about it (or) I'm going to go off." The news report further states: "Steelers center Justin Hartwig is unhappy that Roethlisberger is being judged publicly before any facts are revealed."

Wouldn't it be nice to have some of these high profile guys speaking up about this issue at times when it doesn't affect their team?
