>Pittsburgh Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall was dropped earlier today by one of his sponsors, Champion. This comes a few days after Mendenhall made some controversial remarks regarding the death of Osama Bin Laden and how the US Government is being run.

Although his comments might have been a little out of line, major athletes seem to have lost their rights to be free-thinkers and speak their mind. These days no athlete can move or speak without being the prime speculation of the media, and in some cases being unfairly targeted.
