The Steelers' "zero tolerance" policy?
So, the The Pittsburgh Steelers have waived *rookie* running back Chris Rainey just hours after he was arrested (not convicted, mind you), "charged with one count of simple battery (dating violence)," yet Pro Bowl quarterback Ben Roethlisberger who has been named in two separate, sexual assault charges remains on the team. Doesn't that sort of destroy the team's zero-tolerance claims? Of course, the team will point to Rainey's collegiate arrest for misdemeanor stalking as the reason for their hard-line stance, but Big Ben had already been named in a civil suit before the more egregious sexual assault case came to light in Georgia, adding they wanted to allow justice to be decided by the cops and the courts. So, do the Rooneys believe in the legal system or the star system?
