So with all the detailed reports on thesmokinggun.com that now paint Roethlisberger as a sexual predator, the next phase of grief, after anger and depression, is obviously acceptance. I've come to accept that our QB is a fat, lazy, drunken sexual predator.
Do I want to get rid of him? No, I just want to know what’s driving the reckless behavior of a 28 year old adult that is now well beyond his college years so that he is cured. Yes, I said “cured” because I think what he has is an illness and I think that illness is called ALCOHOLISM.
What are the two common themes that have always surfaced around Ben? ..... That’s right, alcohol and women. One leads itself to problems with the other.
So then, what is it about the alcohol with Roethlisberger? It’s obviously a big issue in his life. What’s driving this reckless behavior as a 28 yrs old adult and well beyond his college years? Is he lonely? Is he just bored? Is it childhood issues? Loss of his mother at an early age? Or is he just a self-indulgent arrogant prick who suffers from a serious case of EAE (elitist athlete entitlement) where he honestly believes his money allows him to live a lifestyle above the law?
I don’t know the answer, but what I do know and believe . . . is that ALCOHOL is the drug of choice in Roethlisberger’s life for quite some time .... and it’s now obviously at a point where it's a problem.
