Roethlisberger not charged, but he's still a jerk

Ben Roethlisberger was exonerated from a crime today; but the District Attorney in Georgia made it clear that some bad things happened. Reading between the lines, you can tell that the police found evidence that Roethlisberger took advantage of the girl in question, just not to an extent that he was guilty of a crime.

The DA said the girl was extremely intoxicated, there was 'DNA' on/in her, and Ben was seen following her down a hallway and into a bathroom. So, we all know what happened. This girl was completely drunk, agreed to have sex with Ben, and then became extremely emotional when realizing (or have to confess to friends) what happened. She ran to the police 'in hysterics' and said she was 'assaulted'.

Look, only a jerk takes advantage of some girl he barely knows like that. The DA said in this case 'we don't prosecute morals'. Clearly he knows what happened too, and is calling Big Ben a huge jerk in front of everyone.

The Steelers have quite a situation now. Their Super Bowl winning quarterback is a jerk, everyone now knows he's a jerk, and they have to try to sell his jersey and get fans to support him. At this point, I will have a hard time looking at Big Ben supporters and thinking nothing more than 'that person supports a-hole athletes that take advantage of women'. And truthfully, that has nothing to do with the fact that I'm a Browns fan.

  1. A bit of a non-sequitor here: but after reading this, I realized your blog hasn't written much about Tiger Woods and I'm glad.
