Default Ben Worthlessberger: Even scummier than imagined

Denver Broncos fans have always known he was a major douchenozzle, but now SI is on the story.

Quote:
Jack McCallum's article could probably be defined as a hit piece, but it's an entirely fair one. If half of the stuff in the story is true, then Roethlisberger is even scummier than imagined.

Intense. Let's hope for a good preseason to drive up the values of our glut of quarterbacks, see if we can't fleece the Steelers

There is no doubt in my mind Ben is a scum bag.

This has given me a great Idea. We should get a slew of hot young chicks on the board. Then If there is a player that needs to go but the coach does not see it that way we can make it happen.

That's right folks, this is a way the fans can take control. We just take some of our hot chicks, have them make false accusations about the player and whether he did it or not it sounds like we can get rid of him for at least 6 games.

Just don't use anyone you care about, because Ben WILL actually rape them.

Nope I was thinking our own team. Say like when Slowik was F'n it all up. Throw a couple chicks his way and bye bye for a while. I mean chances are that we would have had a better d with no coach.

Of course the same goes for a player not doing well.

Here's a good summary of the article:


SI story on Roethlisberger features several new details
Posted by Mike Florio on May 5, 2010 8:36 AM ET

We pointed out before calling it a night that the new Sports Illustrated contains a feature regarding Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Though the magazine is not yet on newsstands, the article by Jack McCallum has been posted on the SI.com web site.

Here are some highlights (or, as the case may be, lowlights):

1. Agent Ryan Tollner claims that Roethlisbeger has gotten the message. "[H]e's a good person who doesn't want to be remembered as the kind of guy who's being presented to the public right now," Tollner said.

2. In 2006, several months after Roethlisberger had suffered serious injuries due to riding a motorcycle without a helmet and then vowed to always wear a helmet in the future, KDKA-TV captured images of him riding a motorcycle without a helmet. He shot a middle finger to the camera as he drove away. The story never aired, possibly due to concerns that it would have disrupted the station's relationship with the Steelers. (KDKA broadcasts the team's preseason games, and also is the local CBS affiliate.)

3. Accounts of Roethlisberger's "Do you know who I am?" attitude arose repeatedly during the visit by Sports Illustrated writers to Pittsburgh.

4. A source close to Roethlisberger said that his goal with the alleged victim in Milledgeville wasn't intercourse but "Clinton sex." (Please, enjoy your breakfast.)

5. The police officer who resigned in the wake of the Milledgeville incident, Jerry Blash, has a sign in his carport that reads "RESERVED PIMP PARKING. HO'S IN BACK." (We're far more offended by the fact that it's not funny at all.)

6. A person named "Craig" told SI that, a few weeks before the Milledgeville incident, he overheard Roethlisberger making lewd comments to a pregnant waitress at a T.G.I.Friday's restaurant. "Did your boyfriend forget to pull out?" were among the things Roethlisberger allegedly said.

7. Roethlisberger held a party on the one-year anniversary of his motorcycle accident, and his behavior resulted in Roethlisberger being required in the future to pay the $5 cover charge at the bar, which thereafter prompted a call from a Steelers security official asking why Ben had been banned. The owner of the bar said that Roethlisberger hasn't been banned but also said, "Tell him he's an arrogant a-hole, and every Steeler can get in without a cover except him."

8. An unnamed friend of Roethlisberger's said that, when they are out together, the friend feels obligated to apologize to waiters and bartenders for Ben's behavior. The friend has never witnessed sexual impropriety, but he has seen Ben "disrespect" women.

9. I've long believed that words and actions during playground basketball games are one of the biggest indicators of a guy's true character. So this observation from the unnamed friend struck a chord: "He is embarrassed by Roethlisberger's pettiness and immaturity during pickup basketball games -- he says Big Ben will whine about team selection, talk mean-spirited trash and flex his biceps when he makes a good play."

10. Teammate Willie Colon, who was with Roethlisberger on the fateful night in Milledgeville, had this to say about the situation. "The fans have a right to be upset," he said. "They buy tickets to support us. Remember that Ben is a human being, and human beings make mistakes. Hopefully he learns from his and moves on."

We recommend reading the entire article, along with additional info from David Epstein, which eventually will be posted at SI.com.

Also, the SI article once again demonstrates that nothing good comes from active pro football players playing pickup basketball.

I've been saying this about him for years. I'm not far from Pittsburgh at all, and dated a girl who's brother was a bouncer at one of the clubs there. Roethlisberger is a Grade-A a-hole.

Maybe my "true character" is a competitive douche, but I'm usually a pretty laid back and relaxed guy. However, throw me into a pickup game and sometimes it gets intense out there. I'd really like to think that my "competitive game mode self" is not
my "true self".

The fact that he's a dick, who cares? Most professional athletes are. It's just internet mentality of piling on at this point. Wow, he talks trash during a bball game? OMG! LYNCH HIM!

What sets him apart isn't that he's a dick, it's that he physically assualts women.

For people that live in (or around) the Pittsburgh market, the Big Ben being a asshat is nothing new.

I at one time thought he was the future starting QB of Denver.

I think people are forgetting one important fact - that Big Ben is one of the ugliest men to ever walk this planet.
