    Roethlisberger Sucks



    This jackwad just donated $8K to Baltimore PD for a new canine.

    How are you supposed to hate a guy?

    Dick.

    Didn't he do that last year? Maybe not, but it sounds very familiar.

    Either way, nice gesture.

    Very nice gesture on his part for the City of Baltimore.

    I hope he doesn't ask for his check back after we kick their asses

    Seriously though, I think that's great.

    Why? Nobody told him its one of the richest counties in the entire United States? They didn't need the money. Baltimore City needs some help financially but not Montgomery...

    Re: Roethlisberger Sucks

    this is so NOT a story.. Ben has a K9 foundation a grant program that goes along with it. Baltimore needed a new dog and used the grant program.

    You guys make it sound like Ben showed up at the front door of Central Booking with a new dog this afternoon.

    He wears piss and black.

    I'd hate that son-of-a-bitch if he was donating blood to needy orphans and shitting cancer curing turds. Sure I'd appreciate what he'd done, but I'd still hate him.

    Re: Roethlisberger Sucks

    If he was the QB for the Baltimore Ravens people would be throwing him a parade for this. We can hate him all we want, but I sure wish we drafted him back in 04.

    He might be a dickhead when drunk, but I doubt he actually raped anyone. I am putting my neck on the line here as a Ravens fan, but you know it's probably the truth.

    With that said, I hope he doesn't return at all this year so the Steelers sink out of the play off race.

    Dude, I know you are British and I actually enjoy your posts on here. But we just had us an election over here in the colonies where one of our political parties shot itself in the foot over comments made by 2 Senate candidates regarding the "legitimacy", etc. of rape.

    No woman wants to be RAPED, even in a post-"50 Shades of Grey" world. Neither does any woman relish the ordeal faced by the plaintiff in a rape case (defense attorneys publically go over and after their lifestyle/sexual history like starving dogs - that's what they're paid to do). This is why many rape plaintiffs drop charges. Ben most likely had charges dropped in the GA case (and others I think, I'm no expert on Ben's off-field history) for precisely this reason. No woman would make even the initial accusation unless they experienced other than fully consensual sexual contact.
    Ben used his status to attract female attention and then behaved in ways that were not perceived by his accusers as fully consensual. The GA case w/ the drunk college kid I find particularly egregious, much as I found Bill Clinton and Paula Jones or Monica L. Pick on someone your own size, boys!!

    I don't doubt that Ben behaved at least boorishly and quite likely criminally in his sexual assault/rape incidents. He has a history of being an asshole when out in public. It has permanently affected my perception of him and the desirability of his obvious football talents.

    The thing w/ police dogs he has been doing for a while in every community in which he plays, and good for him.
    It is a worthy gesture even considering the obvious p.r. motivations that in part motivate it.

    I'm glad I won't have to watch him tomorrow from Sec 527, for any number of reasons.

    Sorry, guy, but the brother, husband, and father in me had to pipe up. GO RAVENS and peace out.

    Your "no woman" statement is overly broad. Crystal Mangum (Duke LAX) lied. There's a man still sitting in prison in VA after his accuser admitted she lied because VA has a "21 day" rule that doesn't allow a trial judge to consider evidence not presented within 21 days of conviction except for DNA. Lamar Owens's accuser (Naval Academy) probably didn't know what happened that night: she was extremely drunk.

    Most states, perhaps all, have laws which restrict the ability of defense attorneys to go after an alleged rape victim's past, sexual or otherwise. The Duke LAX defenders were denied using Mangum's previous psychiatric problems- including a previous dubious allegation of being raped- in pretrial hearings, and would have been denied had it gone to trial.

    I don't know if Roethlisberger is a rapist/sexual offender or not. As a Ravens fan, I laugh at "Rapistberge," but that's based on my fan bias, not on any evidence which shows even to a preponderance of the evidence that he warrants the label.

    Where is your proof on that? I have proof that says otherwise.

    From 1973 through 2008, nine surveys of women's rape fantasies have been published. They show that about four in 10 women admit having them (31 to 57 percent) with a median frequency of about once a month. Actual prevalence of rape fantasies is probably higher because women may not feel comfortable admitting them.

    For the latest report (Bivona, J. and J. Critelli. "The Nature of Women's Rape Fantasies: An Analysis of Prevalence, Frequency, and Contents," Journal of Sex Research (2009) 46:33), psychologists at North Texas University asked 355 college women: How often have you fantasized being overpowered/forced/raped by a man/woman to have oral/vaginal/anal sex against your will?

    Sixty-two percent said they'd had at least one such fantasy. But responses varied depending on the terminology used. When asked about being "overpowered by a man," 52 percent said they'd had that fantasy, the situation most typically depicted in women's romance fiction. But when the term was "rape," only 32 percent said they'd had the fantasy. These findings are in the same ballpark as previous reports.

    I disagree leach. When one considers the utterly abysmal percentage of rape cases the police are able to even charge someone over, the well publicized impropriety in the investigation by the police of both cases, and compound that by the well known difficulty of prosecuting a wealthy celebrity for just about ANY crime, I think his lack of charges is fairly meaningless and that there's an awful lot of smoke for there not to be any fire.

    I think he's a rapist, at best he's sexually aggressive in a way that I find incredibly unethical. If he were a Raven I would go back to cheering for the Niners like I did before 1996 until he left town, and maybe longer considering what it would mean to this organizations ethics to keep a person like that on the team, just like I vowed to do when there were rumors swirling that the Ravens were interested in Michael Vick.

    There are some athletes who's failings as people override my ability to see past them and continue to cheer for the laundry.
