The more I think about these allegations the angrier I get. The more I hear " Ben Roethlisberger accused of assault " the more I want to scream. The more I here that the Steelers chances are shot, the more I want to write this article.
Nick recently wrote an article, My Take on the Allegations , and I must say that it was the best article he has ever written, because it really just said everything that I wanted to say in an article. He did a very good job on it, and I hope he reads this one so he can voice his opinion again.
I have become very angry with the internet, and newspapers these last couple of days, because of the horrid things that they are saying about Ben Roethlisberger. In fact, I almost called my local paper yesterday morning for what they said about Ben there. Everyone needs to stop saying something if they don't know. Like Nick said, no one knows what happened, but Andrea Mcnulty, Ben Roethlisberger, and God.
Not only are these writers talking about Ben, they are also talking about the Steelers in general, saying things like, The Steelers are doomed, and this is just a repeat of our last Super Bowl-winning off season. The Steelers, in my opinion, will not be affected by a mere law suit. Ben knows he is not going to jail, and he knows whether he commited the assault or not. This will not mess with his head. And it for sure will not mess with the other players' heads. The only head this is going to mess with is the lying head of Andrea Mcnulty.
The Steelers might not win the Super Bowl again, but I am still very confident that they will make the playoffs easily. We have a way easier schedule, many of our starters returning, and an awesome quarterback, who is innocent. I see no apparent reason for nothing less than a repeat of last season.
Sorry if I am a little fired up, just a little angry. Feel free to comment!
