Come on, you guys. A WOMAN wrote this article. An obviously over feminist woman, who clearly doesn't understand that, wow, some people may lie to get money or fame, or may sleep with someone because they're a famous football player. Gee, all women must be completely right every time they claim they've been raped or assaulted.

Yes, I can say that. I am a women.

You know, I am not proud of what Ben did. He was not completely innocent in the situation. I dont think he was guilty of rape, but not completely innocent. Anyway, You dont hear people chanting "murderer" to Stallworth or "Dog Killer" to Vick, or anything else to anyone else. Everyone else has been forgiven by the media and given a second chance. I just want Ben to get his, he is clearly a different person.

This is written by a woman, enough said about that. And you know what I think, If they had anything on Ben they could arrest him and have him guilty for, they would have done it. They took down the best lb the league has ever seen in LT, or one of the best. You know, if Ben wasnt winning this much this season, there wouldnt be so many articles on him and what happened lastyear. Its called JEALOUSY

What did he do? He wasn't proven guilty of anything? And why would someone post this negartive crap on our site?

There is a difference between being proven guilty and completely innocent. He was partying on his 28th birthday at a college bar. That is what we know for sure, so everything else would be speculation, but I am sure that at the very minimum he is guilty of poor judgment. Listen, I am over it and have given Ben a second chance, which is what I want the rest of the world to do. I think you missed my point.

Well I just read over the police reports for the first time... I didnt see anything about blood or bruises.


Also the alleged victim was wearing a sticker on her chest all night... withthe letters DTF on them ....she giggled when Ben asked her what it meant... Down To F*** .... All parties said she was drunk out of her mind.


Its all BS, Ben may be stupid but not a rapist. His rep is done for the rest of his life becasue some underage tramp running around with a tag on that says Down To F***.

Her parents must be so proud of her.

--- Added 1/30/2011 at 12:02 PM ---

I know all this has been hashed over and over again , but I never really commented on it before but I emailed this lady.. it reads as follows..

You yourself said "The young woman is painted in terms of being a gold-digger or a drunken slut"

Well all parties involved said she was drunk out of her mind... and she wore a sticker on her chest with DTF on it....thats pretty much the definition of a "drunken slut" don't ya think ? No painting involved. She did her own self portrait.

I guess in your mind its ok for underage girls to be in a drunken stupor in a bar with the letters DTF --Down To F*** on their chest.

Ben even left the bar where she was ... and just happened to show up to the next bar he went too.. funny I didn't read anywhere that he drug her out of that bar and on to the next one.

Ben was stupid thats for sure, but not a rapist. And for the record as a fan I wanted Ben released from the Steelers for his actions. And I will always look at him in a different light.... But I also want him to do well in life and football. Hopefully he will be a better person AND football player.

Go Steelers.

I wonder if that POS dyke that was protesting ben at the cleveland game outside heinz field will be making the trip to the super bowl to continue to show her displeasure with ben...her group will look right at home with the terrible towels tied over their faces, texas is renowned for outlaws...some conviction ,those pathetic fools wouldn't even show their faces...looks like some of the self-righteous folks are starting to crawl out of the woodwork perfect timing pricks...GO STEELERS...GO BIG BEN

I would never wish rape on anyone..i believe it is one of the most heinous crimes in the world right up there with homocide...but these people like this woman can write the most slanderous stuff without any repercussion...I'm just pointing out a totally absurd column by a woman (ahem) with an obvious agenda by being equally as absurd...really ben should start consulting his attorneys about filing a libel suit against these cowardly types of bomb throwers...sorry if there was any misunderstanding i was just being sarcastic...go steelers
p.s. the woman that wrote the column was the one who really gave graphic details

I'm not too concerned about any of this TBH. I really wish I didn't click on the link though. I wish she had somewhere to put comments.

It is times like this we should cut and paste the entire article in to our thread. Try and keep their view count as low as possible. :evilshake:

Agree with that last post. Look folks, the media was referred to as the "nattering nabobs of negativity" by a politician (Agnew I believe) for a reason. This is to be expected.

If anything, I see Killion's article as the last gasp of the media and win or lose, this issue will be put to rest. If its mentioned again it will be briefly in passing....time will dilute this.

But, Ben HAS to keep his nose clean. I believe (by looking at his face the other night) that there is a reflectiveness there we haven't seen before. He's humbled but the football fire that burns within is even hotter.

If he screws up again he will be and should be gone. But I don't believe he will.I believe he has changed. And one other thing, while he is guilty of bad judgment by placing himself in that bar in GA, he is certainly was not proven guilty of anything else. Vick deserves a second chance because he did his time and paid his fine. Ben has too.

'Nuff said...lets play some football and kick some ***.

:thinking: Correct me if I'm wrong people above, but I don't think it's the "rooting for Ben" part that they find appalling. It's probably more of the, "I hope this self righteous uptight broad runs into a genuine rapist and then he can instruct her on what rape really is," part.

I know I'm new here so hope y'all don't mind me commenting.

Yeah. She sounds like some opportunistic, stiffened up career type who forgot to stop and have "fun" along the way.

She talks about what "prism" people view things through. I'm guessing her "prism" has been pistoning where the sun don't shine and is a might sticky and opaque at this point since she probably doesn't clean it when she's done. (That's sounds harsh, doesn't it? I'm sorry, it's late, I'm on cold medicine.......and the best reason not to ban me?.......I didn't use any bad words! :banana: )

My feminist mother be rolling in her Pittsburgh grave right now, sorry mom.

I'm certainly not saying that forced sexual interaction and harassment should go unpunished or ignored. I think the best outcome of all this is that two people became more reflective about themselves and their roles in what happened that night in Milledgeville (I may have spelled that wrong, it's the Benadryl typing, sorry). I hope they BOTH can emerge better people for it. In this case, I think we can all see that Ben has firmly started down that path, and I hope the other person involved has, or can eventually, as well.

Now, as jd1000 said.............let's play some *** and kick some football!!!! (something like that)

Exactly.

Can't believe you're even suggesting that you were sarcastic Airbrake, maybe at the end of your comment but even then I doubt it.

I read the article, and I read the police reports. Her article isn't too far off but it certainly has a negative agenda against Ben- which in-all-fairness she has a right. Winning football games or even a Superbowl doesn't mean he's "changed", he's been doing that since day 1. Not trying to turn this thread into a Big Ben hatefest, just simply reiterating what she mentioned in her article.

I agree...but I think she was also hoping to have a "relationship" with Ben that she clearly was not going to get...so instead she tried hurting him...

she should be the one that got sued!!!

this is why I hate all the hype leading up to the super bowl. All the media wants to talk about is Ben's suspension and his off the field problems earlier this year. Nobody cares about the game. I swear I am so glad I am not watching all this **** this week. I see enough of on it tweets during the day. I haven't watched coverage of the playoffs hardly at all since they started, and I'm not about to begin now. I'll watch the pregame this sunday but that's it. I get all the Steelers info I need online.

this is just some of the comments on the espn north blog today. all they can do is sit and accuse someone of something that was unproven. you know it's time to move on. the only sad thing is that even with this super bowl win that it will be forever overshadowed because of the ben accusations. or the harrison fines. and not the hard work or overcoming the odds againt to win the super bowl.


MadDog10306 (1/31/2011 at 11:22 AM) Report Violation
Peter Kings column today: "Regarding Roethlisberger, Goodell said when he was investigating what to do with the quarterback, he talked to "I bet two dozen [Steeler] players ... Not one, not a single player, went to his defense. It wasn't personal in a sense, but all kinds of stories like, 'He won't sign my jersey.' ''

Nice QB the Steelers got there. His own teammates cant stand him. That's because they've seen him in action and know the he is a RAPIST.

I'm starting to love comments like that; they are a sign of the Steelers being successful. If the Steelers were a bottom dweller like the Browns or Bengals, nobody would care because there would be no spotlight on the team. Let them talk all the **** they want and hopefully they come out with even more fervor when Peter Kings writes about the triumphant Steelers of Super Bowl 45 next week.

I'm a female and I found this article to be a piece of garbage and totally offensive.

In fact I wish I'd never clicked on it.

Its like she wants Ben to be guilty and wants people to share this opinion so much she did a very biased reporting job. IMO, she took the facts that would point to Ben being guilty and didn't even bother with the other side of the coin. SI should be ashamed for even giving this woman a job.

I"m tired of gold digging women who try and use their womanly charms to secure their financial future and when it doesn't work, they play the rape game.

When are woman going to be held accountable for THEIR actions?? This girl got a fake ID to even be in that bar. Does anyone mention that?? She was looking for action..if you know what I mean. Where is this girls parents?? These are the other questions that need to be ask.

I"m not excusing Ben but it takes two to tango and this girl was dancing weather she wants to admit it or not.
