Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been identified as one of nine individuals who were listed as defendants in a Washoe County (Nevada) online court document. A lawsuit, filed by Andrea McNulty, an employee of Harrah's Casino, claims Roethlisberger sexually assaulted her.

There is one thing and only one thing that we know for certain. That is, Andrea McNulty had $200 to spend. That is the cost of filing a civil suit, regardless of whether there is a shred of truth to it. If one wanted to get $200 worth of jollies, you can file a civil suit against George Bush, then sit back and watch the media.

While I insist that my bias for the Pittsburgh Steelers will not shade my reaction to this, there are two things quite curious. First, it has taken more than a year for this to come to fruition. Second, it is important to note that while civil complaints were filed, there has not been any criminal complaint or any criminal investigation, which seems quite strange to me.

Atlanta-based attorney David Cornwell denied Roethlisberger sexually assaulted McNulty. "This weekend Andrea McNulty served Ben Roethlisberger with a civil complaint accusing him of sexually assaulting her in July 2008. Ben has never sexually assaulted anyone; especially Andrea McNulty. The timing of the lawsuit and the absence of a criminal complaint and a criminal investigation are the most compelling evidence of the absence of any criminal conduct. If an investigation is commenced, Ben will cooperate fully and Ben will be fully exonerated," Cornwell said.

My bottom line is I feel absolutely nothing now about this matter. I do not feel any inclination to rush to Ben's defense because I am a Steelers fan; nor do I feel any inclination to believe some woman who at this point simply had $200 at her disposal.

She is wanting to turn that 200 dollars into 500,000 dollars. I hope she looses that 200 and more.

That could happen if her co-workers countersue. They're not public figures and their reputations could take a major hit. There's also the stress of being a defendant in a lawsuit when you're trying to live on a hotel worker's salary.

Of course Goodell is looking into it.

It means more fines for every every Steelers hit, new rules to protect Tom Brady and more draft picks for the Pats*.

There ya go.

Tom Brady's knee says they deserve more draft picks from these accusations.

Is it possible that if (when) she loses she could be sued for defamation of character or something like that? This is just too fishy to have really happened, sounds like a money grubber to me.
