Terry Bradshaw Rips Ben Roethlisberger

Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw said he hopes the NFL does not reduce Ben Roethlisberger's six-game suspension.

"Going to bars -- treating women like that; oh my God," the Hall of Famer said on Wednesday at the AdvoCare Independence Bowl Kickoff Luncheon at Shreveport Country Club. "I pray they don't cut (his NFL suspension) to four games. I hope they leave it at six. There is no excuse for that. The egos get out of hand."

Roethlisberger is scheduled to meet commissioner Roger Goodell Friday to see if he can get his suspension reduced.

The NFL suspended Roethlisberger for six games for violating the league's personal conduct policy after he was accused of sexual assault for the second time in less than a year.
