Ben getting slammed


Recommended Posts



• Davenport estimated that about 60 percent of the locker room felt like Roethlisberger thought he was "bigger than the team" and not focused on winning.


• Davenport also discussed a time when Joey Porter(notes) called out Roethlisberger in a team meeting for being the last one in to practice and the first one to leave. Porter also accused Roethlisberger of not being dedicated to the team and criticized him for not fraternizing with his teammates.


• Mike Logan confirmed the incident where Porter addressed Roethlisberger and said that all the things Porter mentioned were already being talked about in the locker room.


• Someone identified only as "a close friend of a Steelers player" said that the reason Roethlisberger had a bodyguard was because of an incident where a man put a gun to Roethlisberger's head because Roethlisberger was involved with the man's girlfriend.


• Naqi spoke with people who work at Pittsburgh bars and nightclubs, and they described Ben as someone who was condescending to the staffs and rude to other customers. One bar owner said Roethlisberger always expected he and his entourage to be given free food and drinks.

I rocked my Flacco jersey around town Saturday. I've never been prouder to wear it since the #7 jerseys are nowhere to be found nowadays.


"Na-na-nana-na my QB's not a sexual predator"


That's true... if NFL jerseys were stocks, Roethlisberger's would be selling for pennies a share right now... Steelers fans are down to Ward and Polamalu jerseys now, while we have 8 or 9 that are still selling high.

Is it just me, or do the steelers look like a very average team this year?

No holmes, no ben. That was 99% of all the BS plays that win them games. I cant tell you how many games those two have single handedly won by the skin of their teeth. Those days are now over.


Without Roethlisberger they're actually below average. With him, they're average or above-average.

Ain't the first nor will it be the last time at all!

dont understand.


Anyway, you guys are giving too much credit to cinci. Benson wont repeat his huge success, Palmer was average last year, Marvin Lewis is still a terrible coach who somehow hasnt lost his job. Did you guys see Cinci gets beat twice in a row by the jets? They looked terrible when it mattered. If we get any pressure on palmer we can win those two games easy. Heres hoping kindle/suggs combine for 20 sacks this year

Roethlisberger public urination investigation confirmed

Posted by Mike Florio on July 13, 2010 2:52 PM ET

We mentioned earlier today the existence of rumors that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was peeing at a Columbus, Ohio golf course recently, that a woman witnessed it, that she complained about it, and that she wanted to press charges.


We were told by a source close to Roethlisberger that another member of his foursome was the one who made No. 1, and that Roethlisberger ultimately helped persuade the woman not to pursue the matter.


Multiple reports are now emerging that, indeed, police in Dublin, Ohio investigated a complaint regarding urination on the course. Carl Prine of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that Roethlisberger did not do the public peeing, that the woman (who owns property along the course) ultimately decided against pressing charges, and that the proprietors of the Muirfield Village Golf Club agreed to handle the situation by reminding golfers to use the available restrooms.


Prine reports that police did not interview the golfers. (There also presumably was no Porky's-style line up.)


TMZ has some slightly different details, which suggest that perhaps Roethlisberger isn't innocent of watering the grass. Per TMZ, the woman initially called the golf club's pro shop and described the perpetrator of the peeing. She was told that the person fitting the description provided was Roethlisberger. The woman then called police and reported that Roethlisberger was peeing in public.


According to TMZ, police arrived at the club and determined that no crime had been committed. By the time the police showed up, Roethlisberger and the rest of his foursome were "long gone"; based on the one-page report obtained by TMZ, the incident occurred between the 17th green and the 18th tee.


Though Roethlisberger's camp maintains that Ben didn't do the peeing, the information obtained from TMZ suggests that maybe he did, and that perhaps one of the other guys in the pee party will take the fall if this incident should grow legs, as far as the NFL is concerned.


Is it a big deal? No. Is it newsworthy in light of Roethlisberger's involvement, given his recent history? Hell yes.


Maybe, in the end, we'll learn that he was merely leaving his autograph in the sand pit. Then again, with a name like Roethlisberger, he would have had to drink a 64-ounce soda from the nearest Kwik-E-Mart.
