ARLINGTON (AP) – Other than asking for the heat to be turned up in the billion-dollar stadium, Ben Roethlisberger puts a happy face on a snowy media day.

The Steelers’ quarterback deflected questions about his suspension Tuesday, stressing his desire to be a role model and praised just about anyone involved in this Super Bowl.

Aaron Rodgers wasn’t any more revealing during the Packers’ one-hour session inside Cowboys Stadium, a haven from the kind of weather Pittsburgh and Green Bay shrug about, but that freaks out North Texas.

Roethlisberger said the wintry mix that virtually shut down the area “would be a dusting back home.” Rodgers concurs, adding “We’ve been in a lot of weather like this, but back in Green Bay.”
