Roethlisberger has been accused yet again for the second time in a year, of sexual assault. A young lady in Georgia has filed charges against the Steeler quarterback. After what happened last year, you would think Big Ben would know better.
Unlike the previous allegation where it was found out that the young lady involved in the case in Lake Tahoe plan to basically trap Big Ben, this newest allegation sounds serious.
This young lady didn’t wait two years before she said anything; she turned him into the police the next day. She also went to the hospital as well. Roethlisberger hired a high powered attorney that represented Ray Lewis in a case, so this sounds like serious business.
At some point if you are a star athlete, when do you learn? When do you learn that you just can’t go into night club and not expected to be hit on by several women and in some cases by guys who just hate you because of your money and fame?
When does it stop? Roethlisberger was fortunate to escape the rape allegations last year basically because this particular woman admitted to her friends that she intended to have the quarterback’s love child and use it to get some of his money as well.
This is the same guy who almost died in a motorcycle accident four years ago, and yet he is STILL doing stupid stuff. When will the Steelers say enough is enough. When do they step in and tell him either straighten out and fly right, or you’ll find yourself unemployed. Roethlisberger is a young man enjoying the single life as he should, but he’s got to make smarter choices then this.
Even if he escapes this latest accusation, if you are the Steelers do you say to him look this it, no more chances. Roethlisberger is not only risking his freedom by basically being a dummy, but his every action is becoming detrimental to the team as well.
Without all this going on, the Steelers didn’t make the playoffs, if they lose their quarterback that will probably almost guarantee another year of missing the playoffs and push the team’s progress further behind; makes your wonder if the Steelers need to start thinking about replacing their starting quarterback.
Roethlisberger better wise up quickly and understand only cats get nine lives, not human beings.
