Big Disgusting Ben
April 15, 2010 - John Mehno
If you get a chance, go over to www.thesmokinggun.com and check the documents associated with the Ben Roethlisberger case in Milledgeville, GA. These aren't news articles, they're copies of witness statements.
If you still think Roethlisberger is in the clear because he wasn't charged with a crime, think again. Ask yourself if the kind of behavior described is appropriate under any circumstances.
And here's something that's gone under the radar. One of the members of Roethlisberger's entourage that night was Steelers offensive lineman Willie Colon.
I'm not naive. I've been around professional sports for a long time and seen a lot of things. I've known people who have lived double lives. But the witness statements describe behavior that is shocking. If you think this was just a "boys night out," read the statements and see if you still feel that way.
If Roethlisberger can't control himself better than this, he should spend his evenings at home.
