08:41 AM ET 03.02 | Ben Roethlisberger said he has heard enough, and it's time to put an end to it. The perception created by a few of his teammates that the Steelers locker room was in disarray last season just is not true, the quarterback insisted, and someone needed to say it. So why not the veteran quarterback, the captain of the offense? "For anybody to say there are locker room issues or leadership issues are completely off base," Roethlisberger said Thursday, shortly after he signed a restructured contract to create $6 million of salary cap room for the Steelers in 2013. "I believe that's the frustration. I believe that it's frustration of last year, I honestly do."

But the whole story hasn't been told, Deej.

They have been in three of the last eight superbowls and won two of those. I think there are a lot of locker rooms around the NFL with bigger problems.

I think things will settle when some Malcontents leave, i.e. Wallace and Mendenhall

Hard to believe that story is not on here. Actually, I suppose it is not all that hard to believe.

They are too in shock to write a story about it.

And michael jackson or jerry sandusky never molested any kids either. If one person accuses somebody of something, could go either way. When multiple people accuse that person of the same thing it is a bit much.

Let me guess Ben did not rape any of them, he just forcefully made love to them when they were so intoxicated they could not legally consent. Really, that is the dude you want to stand up for? That speaks volumes about your own character. As long as you can win my beloved team games you can kill, rape or anything else.

Reports are that Mike Wallace, Casey Hampton, Rashard Mendenhall, Max Starks, Ramon Foster, Ryan Mundy, and Larry Foote will all be free agents. Time to get some fresh faces for that 8-8 team. And maybe, just maybe that will take the edge off in the locker room.
