    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...

    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.

    I think all nice gestures are stories. It's a nice thing to do and he didn't have to. No, he didn't show up with a dog, he gave them $8K to pay for one that is fully trained.

    You act like you do this kind of thing daily.

    Re: Roethlisberger Sucks

    eh, i mean, we knew he wasn't really as much a human waste as some of the degenerates you see on street corners. He's had his bad moments for sure, but he's like most NFL players nowadays...most of them are affiliated with at least SOME sort of charitable cause.

    So, while I applaud him, I do get others saying it's a non-story. It's not like the guy showed up on Thanksgiving and volunteered at Bea Gaddy's. And, no, I didn't do it either.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    SpamBot...to play devil's advocate, you could make the same argument about Ray Lewis. He WAS charged with murder, the charges were dropped in a plea agreement, but there's certainly a lot of smoke about the case still to make other fans wonder if he was more involved than the legal system decided he was.

    And yet, we all look past that and cheer for him. Why? Because quite obviously, the man has turned away from whatever evils were around him. He's gone through hell and rebuilt his life. He's atoned.

    Ben plays for a rival, so I'll never LIKE him. But, I think we can all admit, he's seemed to turn his life around from whatever ways he was before. I don't really think he outright raped anyone, though I might tend to think he was "aggressive" and probably carried on in ways that were not too smart or honorable. But, the man has gotten married and had a kid now. And we've heard less and less about him partying and doing anything stupid.

    Let's just say he was QB for the Ravens. I think we'd absolutely forgive him like we did with Ray. Am I glad we don't have to worry about that what if, sure...assuming Flacco gets a bit more consistency. Do we still have things we can taunt him about? Absolutely. He's still a major drama queen and seems to develop these "painful" injuries that he always seems to play through and grimace like he's being stabbed in the kidney. But I think in this case, whatever happened with him, it isn't anymore.

    Re: Roethlisberger Sucks

    The facts of Ray's case are well documented and the likliehood that he was involved in the murders beyond being a witness who didn't cooperate with the police is slim to none. We've forgiven Ray for his mistakes in allowing people who would kill to be in his life.

    As for what fans in general would do, yes, I think in general fans would embrace Ben the Raven. I was just giving my opinion which is that I can and will not support him in any context.

    Re: Roethlisberger Sucks

    Are we absolutely sure that was a canine, and not just a female Steelers fan?
