ben-roethlisberger-rape-chargesHad to come out of my self-imposed hibernation to comment on this week’s revelation that Big Ben Rapelisberger will not be charged with sexual assault.  Depending on who you believe, he either paid off the girl or the DA didn’t think he had enough evidence to convict.  Either way, no one is saying something didn’t happen or Ben was falsely charged, just that he won’t face prosecution.  

Since this story broke, a lot of behind-the-scenes stories of Ben came out showing how he’s a first-class jerk and goes around not paying his bar tabs, or just plain “big-timing” people.  Of course, we also now know that he can’t score a piece of ass with his charm and intellect, or good looks for that matter.  He has to resort to forcing himself on drunk college girls who can’t believe the Great Ben Roethlisberger is paying attention to them.  What’s the matter, Ben?  You can’t get a girl your age to want to go to your house, so you have to force yourself on them in the shitter while your posse guards the door?  

Most fans gave you a pass when the first lawsuit from Tahoe made the news.  We gave you the benefit of the doubt thinking famous athletes are always a target for some gold digging whore.  Now, with this new episode and others, you’ve been exposed for the idiot you really are.  I’ve even heard about another similar incident in Las Vegas that never hit the press but it fit the same M.O. as the Georgia tryst.  In that case, the girl refused to file a complaint but had hired an attorney to look into it.

Ben now has to have a sitdown with Sheriff Goodell to see if he will get any serious suspension or just a wrist slap.  I’m thinking Goodell will screw it up as he has most every issue since taking over as commish, but that’s a rant for another day.   I don’t know if I would suspend him or not seeing that he hasn’t been convicted of anything other than being extremely stupid.  When I first heard of the Georgia incident, I thought, wow, he’s either tremendously unlucky or dumb as a bag of rocks.  I think we now know the answer…..
