Airs at 7:00 PDT on the left coast. I doubt that this will paint Ben in a good light. Looks like his misogynistic behavior could be exposed. Offering to "buy all the bitches in the house" a drink is not something that men who are respectful of women would say.

agreed. this is what is pissing me off. now we have mainstream news media getting involved in this that normally don't talk anything sports related. it's bad enough that ben has put the steelers organization in a bad light among the sports media. it's another thing when geraldo f-ing rivera is getting involved. the sooner this goes away, the better. i'm sick of this story. enough already. ben needs a life coach to follow him around and make sure he doesn't **** up off the field

Hey! whats wrong with buying all the bitches in the house a drink? I would think that NOT buying them a drink would be less respectful if anything...:lol:

Yeah, you're right. The previews to the show implied that they had some revelations involving the case when in fact the report revealed nothing. Just sucked in some sucker Steeler fans and haters hoping for something new to be revealed. :cursin:

Geraldo is nothing more than a tabloid reporter. They are the lowest of the low. Whale **** isn't as low as Geraldo. Maybe someone will bust his nose with a chair on TV again that was funny.

If Geraldo is doing a whole show on this, what do you suppose is going to fill all this time up? He's going to have women that have met him and he has treated like crap on the show. This could easily destroy what little dignity Ben has left.

This is truly a turning point in Ben's life. He has to take it easy on the drinking and learn how to behave in public as a celebrity. Or I'm afraid he won't be a Steeler for too much longer

perhaps Geraldo will reveal that Ben has a secret vault in his house with incriminating evidence, but when Geraldo opens the vault he'll find out that it's just like the case against Ben, full of nothing!!!!!!!!!!

This has been my same feelings towards Ben ever since this news broke out.

Every freaking off season there is drama with this guy. Last off season I was defending him and this off season I see him as guilty until I hear otherwise.

My 18 year old son has more smarts than Ben does.

i watched it, but i was half asleep, lol...they were just saying how this lawyer he got is the best of the best, and they're going to analyze all of the evidence (check for DNA in the bathroom, look at the medical report from the hospital, etc.)...ben admits to sex, but says everything was consensual

it was a really short segment

Ben admits to sex...... This is going to get ugly. At least the last case was he said she said. But know he did have sex with her and she busted her head open not good.

:rofl: They are going to check the bathroom for DNA? That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Any lawyer worth his bar card can argue circles around evidence collected from a "crime scene" that is days old and was left unprotected. Ben's lawyer is going to eat this thing up in hours if this is the crap they are coming at Ben with.

wait, wait are you sure they said sex and not just sexual contact?

He admits that he had sex with her in the bathroom?! What a moron, seriously... Call me naive but I thought they were just making out

At this point it's damage control and that's important. If formal charges are brought against him, he's toast as a Steeler and what's left of his already suspect reputation will go away. And that's just before the trial. The 20 year old went straight to the cops/hospital to give evidence. That speaks of two things: Ben violated her or she was out to "violate" him financially since it doesn't take much to get DNA from someone. It will be impossible for him to explain away his DNA whether consensual or not. I saw an OTL piece today stating the Ben admits it wasn't consensual (even though no sex was had) so if he did say it, he's an idiot for doing so.
I could really care less about Ben personally or that 20 year old chick who was in the bar illegally to begin with. But as a STEELERS fan I want this to go away quickly which means paying her to go away.


Let it be known that I've lived thru this scenerio as a club member in the Australian Football League with arguably one of the greatest footballers who played the game Down Under... he actually has been 'BOOTED OUT' of the USA after kicking a policeman in the head in Miami... I'm sure someone here has heard of one... WAYNE CAREY?

I'm give you a lowdown..
Was explosive on the field in the way of DOMINATION... very POWERFUL & INTIMIDATING (as the club captain at the age of 22 in 1993, he was a LEADER OF MEN...

In 1995, after a Preliminary Loss (think Conf Championship Loss) I happen to be at the same Ivy Night club where all the players retreated after the game... the disappointment of losing was very profound.. it was an upbeat party but you can tell that some players were drowning in their sorrows. What I saw in the bathroom that very night is something that didn't surprise me when I heard a few days later what had happened out on the street 3AM. What I saw was that CAREY had the biggest/ mightiest Defender we had in a Raging Headlock smashing his head against the wall..
you wouldn't believe it if you didn't see it. Think of an angry Big Ben taking Silverback aside and dealing with him quite aggressively behind closed doors. I was with a good friend at the time.. we had just entered the bathroom, saw the RAGE and decided to back out.. but my friend had 'to go' and before he knew... CAREY had knocked my friends drink over as he stormed out.. I was on the outside at the time.. friend saw him slap that glass over... I saw the enraged look in CAREY's face.. as he left the bathroom.. (and No, this is not normal behaviour for any sports player after a LOSS)

anyway... fwd the clock 4 hours... we would have left that nightspot at 1am.. during the next fortnight, the stories of sexual assault/ rape had spread like wildfire and it stemmed from that Saturday Night. What actually happened: CAREY was with two others in the street.. one being a teammate (ROCKY), who were intoxicated.. come across a female who stated she was 'sexually/ indecently assaulted' ... CAREY settled OUT of Court for an undisclosed sum... apparently, Carey has squeezed her small breast and made a derogatory remark. That was the end of that but SIX and half years later the BIGGEST STORY of the YEAR broke out in the 2002 pre-season.

In the lead up to this 'BIGGEST STORY' the previous year (2001), the club VICE Captain,
Anthony Stevens, had been involved in a SERIOUS ACCIDENT outside a BAR (which co-incidently CAREY co-owned) and had had happened, that a fight upstairs had broken out
and the glass has fallen down on the outside where Stevens was with other friends farewelling them for the night.. the sharp glass (which was not safety glass) struck Stevens in the NECK region.. it was such a life & death situation... fortunately for Stevens, the nearest hospital was less than a mile away. Missed much of the next 10 months of football.

In the meantime (by 2001).. CAREY had married with his schoolgirl sweetheart... it wasn't until the pre-season of the 2002 season that the players and friends had gathered at one of the Most Highly Respected, Courageous, TOUGHEST players to play the Aussie Rules Football, Glenn Archer's home.. for a BBQ.. by this time, Vice Captain, Anthony Stevens had fully recovered from his near death experience to attend the evening house party also. The players were quite a tight united group... having won the TWO Premierships (think Super Bowl) in 1996 & 1999.

At this party.. it all happened.. apparently whilst Anthony Stevens was recovering in hospital from his near death experience... his wife, Kellie, was having an affair with CAREY!! and if I could describe Kellie for you.. think of porn star: Jenna Jameson.. she had a KNOCKOUT body!! well, to say what happened in the bathroom at Glenn Archer's family place... and to have GLENN ARCHER catch them in the act.. is just possibly the most definitive 'OH MY GOD' reaction anyone can think of... CAPTAIN & CLUB CHAMPION screwing the VICE CAPTAIN's WIFE in the bathroom of the CLUB's Most
ADMIRED PLAYER!!!

After all the commotion that followed... can you imagine the yelling and the SHOCK???

Carey along with his manager, on March the 13th, 2002, two weeks before the season starts, ANNOUNCES he is quitting the club!! Story goes: Rest of the players had made a pact that they would stand/support behind Vice Capt, Anthony Stevens, and REFUSE to play if CAREY would continue at the club. This left the club with NO CHOICE but to SACK the GREATEST PLAYER who ever played with the North Melbourne Kangaroos. Forcing Carey to RESIGN on his own accord... that was the BIGGEST STORY in 2002. The media attention was MASSIVE. The previous aftermath of BIGGEST Media stories included 9-11 and Princess Di's death but the media just keep POUNDING the pages (first 13 on day 1) each day for a week..

Carey has created other HEADLINES after leaving in 2002 that I don't care to discuss but like TERRY BRADSHAW... to be 'away from the club' for such a long time.. is a sad situation for one of the CLUB's GREATEST.

You can say all you want about Geraldo but the more and more we hear about Ben's personal life, and the way people who are close to the team talk about him, the more he looks like an egomaniacal *** who doesn't respect other people. Ben needs to get a big dose of maturity...and fast. Maybe getting married would settle him down.

BS! This isn't something you get married to learn, you know it to get married. The more that comes out, the more i rub my thinking he will go down. I'm still hoping and trying to give him the benefit of the doubt, but it is getting harder. Imagine how a jury would feel. Settle before it goes to court or all bets are off.......

When did Ben ever say he had sex with her? He only talked to police once and admitted to sexual contact but said he didn't have sex with her. Now all of the sudden he said he had sex with her? I can't find any article that says that.
