If that is true, that makes 3 times he's been involved with this. Kobe Bryant was accused once, and in public opinion poll, was guilty before the trial started. Mike Tyson as well. Why is Ben getting the benefit of the doubt here? Hmmmm..... I think we all know.

IMHO, he obviously has a problem. I'll give you 1 maybe 2 times of the female going after the money, but something doesn't smell right Not this time Big Ben or maybe it isn't so big after all........

Re: Steelers QB Roethlisberger accused of sexual assault in Georgia

its nice to see that accusations havent killed his career

more often than not all it takes is one rape claim to end a career and someone's lifestyle

unfortunately in today's society someone is guilty until proven innocent despite the law being written the other way around

IMO ben is innocent.....these women should be ashamed of themselves for trying to ruin this guys reputation, career, and lifestyle

Can't catch a break? You're joking, right? The guy has caught huge breaks by being gifted enough to play in the NFL and to get drafted by the team he did (do you think he has the same success if drafted by the Lions?). This is multiple times now. The dude needs to wise up.

Re: Steelers QB Roethlisberger accused of sexual assault in Georgia

My instincts tell me that Ben's a glutton for punishment. I would be willing to bet that this time Ben's gonna be in trouble. I hope not, certainly wouldn't wish the situation on anyone, but I just have a strange feeling about it. (Maybe it's cuz he was wearing a big Devil tee shirt...LOL)

I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. If you want to throw me in front of the firing squad, that's your problem. But nobody knows what really happened except for Ben and the girl involved. Being a woman, I know how most girls are in situations like this. All they see is a payoff! If they can get the guy to settle out of court, they walk away with fat pockets! AGAIN, I'm not saying he did do it or didn't do it, but you can never be too sure anymore what some people's intentions are. For all we know, this b*tch probably led him on and when she didn't get what she wanted out of him, she cried 'rape.' Then again, he could have overstepped his boundaries, and played the 'I'm a famous athlete, have sex with me' card. NOBODY KNOWS! I'm just stating that athletes in this position are automatically looked at as the bad guys whether they are guilty or not.

While I agree with your assessment of certain women "targeting" pros, at what point - and after how many "accusations" - do you hold the pro accountable? Are they all just cases of conniving women out to get him OR is Ben just too dumb to keep himself from getting into trouble with underage, drunk, women...?

I mean the guy is almost 30, has multiple championships and still can't stay out of college bars.

Vick and Pacman's biggest problems were the people they surrounded themselves with. To an extent, Ben is no different than they are.

Is there some hidden issue here we don't know about? I mean, saying you know most girls will go for a payoff, and calling the accuser a *****...
