Ben Loses Sponsorship

PITTSBURGH -- A Pittsburgh company that markets food products endorsed by local sports stars has ended its beef jerky sponsorship deal with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Blog network: NFL Nation


PLB Sports president Ty Ballou says Roethlisberger is "falling short" of the company's standards after a Georgia prosecutor announced Monday he will not prosecute the quarterback over sexual assault allegations.
The company said in a statement on Tuesday that facts presented at the prosecutor's news conference led to the decision.
The company sold "Big Ben's Beef Jerky" in bags depicting the quarterback at Pittsburgh area Giant Eagle supermarkets and GetGo convenience stores.

Jerky? LMAO
Falling Short?

Oh the bloody irony...

Re: Ben Loses Sponsorship

Roethlisberger reported to the Steelers' practice facility one day after he met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in New York to discuss the two-time Super Bowl winner's off-the-field problems.

Most Steelers players began the weightlifting and conditioning sessions March 29, but Roethlisberger previously stayed away to avoid being a distraction. He's expected to participate Monday in the Steelers' first on-field practices since the season ended in January.

Roethlisberger learned Monday that he will not be charged for the alleged sexual assault of a Georgia college student last month. However, he could be disciplined by the league or the Steelers for his conduct. Roethlisberger also is being sued in civil court by a former Nevada hotel employee for an alleged sexual assault in 2008. No criminal charges were filed in that case.

It appears likely that Roethlisberger will face a suspension for his actions this offseason.

NFL Network insider Jason LaCanfora believes a suspension is likely after he talked with some people in the Steelers' organization. Analyst Brian Baldinger also sees a suspension, adding that many players around the league have a big interest in how Goodell reacts to this case.

Reporters aren't permitted into the Steelers' workout areas, and players aren't expected to be made available for interviews until the on-field work starts next week.
