Roethlisberger's Agent Releases Statement
http://kdka.com/steelers/Ben.Roethlisberger.agent.2.1541105.html

A representative of Ben Roethlisberger says his client will cooperate with the investigation after a 20-year-old woman accused him of sexual assault.

The alleged incident happened early Friday morning at Capital City, a night club in Milledgeville, Ga.

In a statement, Ryan Tollner, Roethlisberger's agent, said the quarterback was out with friends last night.

"Ben and his friends met a group of women and everyone mingled together throughout the evening," he said.

During a press conference Friday, Milledgeville police said they spoke to Roethlisberger after the incident.

"Based on information currently available, an allegation was made against Ben, which appeared to be dismissed after a preliminary investigation last night.

"Obviously, given the prior accusation against Ben, we are skeptical of motive, but we will continue to cooperate with everyone involved," Tollner said.

Andrea McNulty, a woman who worked at the Harrah's Casino in Lake Tahoe, filed a civil lawsuit against Roethlisberger. She accused him of sexually assaulting her during a celebrity golf tournament in 2008.

The lawsuit was filed a year after the alleged incident.

Roethlisberger vehemently denied the allegations and filed a countersuit against the woman.

"I would never, ever force myself on a woman. I'm going to fight to protect my family and my reputation," he said during a press conference addressing the matter last July.

But what's the fun in that? There's a reason websites like TMZ exist in the first place: because we eat that shit up and ask for seconds. Besides, there's no better way for fans of teams that have been victimized by Roethlisberger to unleash their pent-up frustrations. If calling him a "rapist" before any facts are even known helps these people sleep better at night, then by God, that's what they're going to do, proper U.S. legal procedure be damned.

Honestly I think TMZ has handled the case responsably so far. They've just reported the story as it's been developing, I haven't seen any rush to judgement or editorializing directed towards any party by TMZ so far.

Two, my problem wasn't with Ben sleepin' with women, I don't give a shit really. It was you bringing all these different players and their issues and acting like Ben's situation doesn't compare, when really, now it does. Ben will now be looked at as having "a problem".

and i think this is the BIG problem many steelerfans have (as already shown on this board).

its not that ben is innocent or guilty, or even if he just had sex with an unknown woman in quickie public fashion.

the main issue is that most fans have a bungles, browns, ravens, (insert other teams name here) idiot friend or aquaintance.

now many of steelernation are gonna have to endure more of their franchise being called 'rapistburger' or a 'cheater" or whatever.

they feel that the teams accomplishments will be diminished much in the same way calling ray lewis a murderer somehow negated that teams ring.

in other words a ton of holier than thou steealerfans are now gonna have to endure all the dirt and almightiness they have dished out.

i think its kind of a selfish reason to be pissed at ben. if steelernation wants choir boys, maybe they should hang out in church all sunday.

case in point-

I haven't read all the posts in this thread or seen all the updates, a customer told me about this at work tonight.

I don't think he raped McNulty.

But sexual assault could be anything from brushing up against someone to rape. I don't know what exactly he supposedly did to this woman. If the police didn't see it fit to hold Roethlisberger overnight, then he's free to go home. If they were expecting to charge him within 24 hours, I assume he would have been detained.

If it turns out that it's true that Big Ben did rape these two women, then I think just about everyone here would condemn him and want him cut from the team immediately.

Do I think Ben Roethlisberger has a "problem". I think his problem is more women wanting to accuse him of something that I don't believe he did. I don't think it's wrong to sleep around, this isn't 15-20 years ago. I do however wish he would be more discreet about who with and where he does the dirty.

I don't think he did anything wrong here. I just wish he would have taken the woman back to his hotel room rather than boinking her in the bathroom.

Also, if you put yourself in a position where you're being accused of rape AGAIN, you have a problem, whether you did it or not. This is not the opinion of somebody with a "holier than thou" attitude, either, A LOT of people think so...

This is ridiculous, the allegations were dismissed last night by police. This is just another attempt to try and give Ben a bad name... I don't believe it for a second. :nono:

I wish that was true. However, with Ben having money and a high priced lawyer the cops wouldn't arrest him for a he said she said situation like this unless the DA has had a look at the evidence, so they can get all the facts straight. I'm hoping this will blow ever, but the fact that he was not arrested yet really, unfortunately, means very little.

On the other hand, who the hell knows if there's anything to this, but seriously, Ben, if there's one thing you ought to have learned from the last case, it's that you DON'T PUT YOURSELF IN THESE SITUATIONS. If you're out at a club, make sure you're in public view with witnesses the whole time. If you nail a chick ... hell, go the Tucker Max route and make sure you have some kind of taped evidence because your ARE A GODDAMN TARGET. Christ. Whatever the courts say, the main thing he's guilty of is needing some more brains.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been accused of sexual assault by a woman in Georgia, entertainment website TMZ reported Friday. Formal charges have yet to be filed.


The alleged incident reportedly occurred early Friday morning in a bathroom in Capital City, a club in Milledgeville, Georgia.

The alleged victim, who has already been interviewed by police, was treated at a local hospital and released, law enforcement sources told TMZ.

Roethlisberger's representatives denied the allegations.

"Last night, Ben and his friends met a group of women and everyone mingled together throughout the evening," Roethlisberger's agent, Ryan Tollner, told profootballtalk.com. "We have spoken to law enforcement. Based on information currently available, an allegation was made against Ben, which appeared to be dismissed after a preliminary investigation last night. Obviously, given the prior accusation against Ben, we are skeptical of motive, but we will continue to cooperate with everyone involved."

"He's been identified as being at the scene and there are allegations naming him as the perpetrator," Deputy Chief Richard Malone said.

According to sportsbybrooks.com, Steelers offensive lineman Willie Colon was with Roethlisberger at the club.


Colon's agent, Joe Linta told Scout.com, "Willie Colon was not and is not involved in any incident alleged or otherwise. His name can be eliminated from any further discussion."

A rep from the Steelers told FOXSports.com's Alex Marvez, "We are gathering information on the report and we will have no other comment at this time."

Roethlisberger owns a home on nearby Lake Oconee, which is located roughly 30 minutes north of downtown Milledgeville.

"Last night, Ben and his friends met a group of women and everyone mingled together throughout the evening," the player's agent, Ryan Tollner, said in the statement.

"We have spoken to law enforcement. Based on information currently available, an allegation was made against Ben, which appeared to be dismissed after a preliminary investigation last night. Obviously, given the prior accusation against Ben, we are skeptical of motive, but we will continue to cooperate with everyone involved."

The nightclub, Capital City, is a popular spot for college students who attend Georgia College & State University in Milledgeville. It was crowded Friday night and there was a $20 cover charge to get in.

One patron, 21-year-old college student Brandon Harris, said he saw Roethlisberger come in the night before with two or three big men, who were keeping other club goers away from the player.

The group went into a curtained VIP area in the back of the club, and some women were let inside.

The owner of a restaurant near the nightclub said Roethlisberger and some of his friends came in earlier Thursday night.

"He was very polite with everybody," said Frank Pendergrast, owner of The Brick. "He was down here from about 11:30 until about 1:30 having a good time, talking to a lot of people. Looked like he was signing autographs and letting people take pictures. Other than that, it was really uneventful."

Pittsburgh's first-round draft pick out of Miami of Ohio in 2004, Roethlisberger led the Steelers to Super Bowl victories at the end of the 2006 and 2008 seasons. But while he's been a huge success on the field, Roethlisberger has had his share of problems off it.

Roethlisberger is already being sued by a Reno, Nev. woman, Andrea McNulty, who claims the quarterback sexually assaulted her in 2008. Roethlisberger has denied those accusations and a criminal complaint was never filed. No physical evidence was ever collected, either. Roethlisberger has asked for counter-damages in that case.

Besides the Lake Tahoe allegations, Roethlisberger broke his jaw and several other facial bones in 2006 when he got into a motorcycle crash while driving without a valid license.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

A quote from the owner of the club, Frank Pendergast:
"He was with about eight "large" guys."

"I talked to him a little bit. I told him I appreciated him coming down and bringing the business. He said, 'Nice place,' and he went off to hang out with his friends. He was a typical customer. He was surrounded by people all the time taking pictures and asking for autographs," Mr. Pendergast said.

"He was polite. His buddies were kind of giving him his space and he was talking with my customers. They were talking about how they were golfing today. They looked like a bunch of college buddies hanging out. They just happened to be 250 pounds."

So this "victim" is hoping we believe that Ben is a smooth talking predator that found a way suddenly sneak her away from a large group of people (who obviously were watching him to ensure this very thing didn't happen) and commit sexual assault? Again, this seems to smell just like the Duke lacrosse rape case ... drunken woman fabricates an interaction that the police are obligated to look into. I wouldn't be surprised to find she boinked some other dude then provided "evidence" with a story it was Ben. DNA may be Ben's best friend here.

Another year, another (hopefully) fictitious allegation. Let me go on record as saying I don't believe this allegation has happened. This just appears to be another woman trying to capitalize on McNulty's allegation.

However, with all that said, this is a disturbing trend. Ben and other professional athletes of high profile need to start to realize that, as much as they want to go out and have fun with thier buddies, they are targets. This is the second such allegation against Ben in less than a year, I think it's time BB takes a look at the positions he is putting himself in by hanging in local bars. There are far too many people out there looking for a free ride at a star athletes expense. He needs to keep a close circle of friends and be wary of "strange women".

Like I said, this is most certainly nonsense but there comes a time when BB must realize who he is and what kind of attention, both negative and positive , he brings and live his life accordingly.

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/10065/1040779-455.stm

The incident report indicates that the victim was with two female friends, ages 19 and 20. Mr. Roethlisberger's name is obscured, but the "offender" is listed as 6-feet-5 and 241 pounds with brown hair and eyes.

Not 225-250ish, but "241" pounds, 6'5". Exactly what is listed on the Steelers website.

Mr. Roethlisberger was "friendly, courteous, didn't cause any trouble here," said Phillip Joiner, marketing promotions director at the Amici cafe in Milledgeville and a city councilman.

Mr. Joiner said the quarterback's house is on nearby Lake Oconee. He is known as a low-key resident who poses for pictures -- as he did Thursday night -- and mingles with the locals both on land and water.

"He's thrown the football from boat to boat," Mr. Joiner said.

Mr. Joiner, who was not in the cafe Thursday night, described Mr. Roethlisberger as "affable and charming. We were happy to have a celebrity in our restaurant."

News of the allegation took the college town by surprise.

"We were all a little shocked," Mr. Joiner said. "That shook us a bit to see."

Frank Pendergast, owner of The Brick, said Mr. Roethlisberger came in about 11:30 p.m. Thursday and stayed for roughly two hours, which would put the timing right before a visit to Capital City.

He was with about eight "large" guys.

"I talked to him a little bit. I told him I appreciated him coming down and bringing the business. He said, 'Nice place,' and he went off to hang out with his friends. He was a typical customer. He was surrounded by people all the time taking pictures and asking for autographs," Mr. Pendergast said.

"He was polite. His buddies were kind of giving him his space and he was talking with my customers. They were talking about how they were golfing today. They looked like a bunch of college buddies hanging out. They just happened to be 250 pounds."

Bettis won't face charges in sexual assault allegation
Westmoreland County decides accusation doesn't hold up

Wednesday, October 16, 2002

The Steelers' Jerome Bettis will not faces charges after all on an allegation that he sexually assaulted a woman he met at a bar in Greensburg this summer.

Westmoreland County District Attorney John W. Peck said there was not "evidence beyond a reasonable doubt" to proceed. "Only Mr. Bettis and the victim, the young woman, know what happened in that car," Peck said.

But Peck went on to say there was "clear" evidence that the accuser's uncle planned to use the allegation to extort money from Bettis.

Peck said Charles Walters of Mount Pleasant Township boasted of a scheme to sexually compromise a Steeler and extort money from him. Peck also described an earlier plot by Walters to provoke Bettis into a fight for the purpose of getting money from him.

Bettis' accuser, a 22-year-old woman, told Greensburg police that he assaulted her in his car after she asked him for an autograph at Bobby Dale's Restaurant & Lounge Aug. 21, when the Steelers were in training camp in nearby Latrobe.

Bettis, 30, told investigators that he and the woman had consensual sex that night. He would not comment on Peck's decision yesterday. The woman would not comment when reached at her home last night. Walters did not return calls, and no one answered the door at his home yesterday afternoon.

Peck said detectives interviewed about two dozen people and learned of a plan by Walters to get money from Bettis by manufacturing a sexual misconduct charge.

Walters was at Bobby Dale's the night of Aug. 21, and he was the first person to talk with police who responded to a 911 call from the bar.

"Numerous people who were found or came forward ... had many interesting details in their reports of what Walters had told them. Many reported that Jerome Bettis was the focus of this scheme ... where sexual misconduct would be alleged," Peck said.

"Many of the people reported that this was to take place at Bobby Dale's in the city of Greensburg."

It was the second scheme involving Bettis, witnesses told investigators. The first -- to draw him into a fight at Bobby Dale's in August 2001 -- failed when several other Steelers intervened after a man began to taunt Bettis, Peck said.

Another scheme Walters bragged about, one that did not involve Bettis, concerned accumulating credit card debt, then filing for bankruptcy, Peck said.

Investigators confirmed that Walters was able to discharge about $80,000 in debt in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in March 2000, Peck said, but he did not know whether there was enough evidence to forward to federal authorities for further investigating.

The witnesses talked to detectives independent of one another and most did not know one another, Peck said.

"Many of them knew of all three schemes. Many of them knew of just one or two," he said. "Based on a review of all these witnesses' reports, it's clear that there was a scheme by Walters.

"Obviously, this evidence was extremely crucial" in the decision not to charge Bettis, Peck said. "It would be unethical for a prosecutor not to look at this exculpatory evidence."

County and city detectives now are trying to determine whether Walters and his niece talked about a scheme to get money from Bettis, a determination necessary to identify a possible conspiracy.

The woman pleaded guilty in September 2000 to simple assault for luring a boyfriend to a secluded spot in East Huntingdon, where he was beaten with a baseball bat by her husband. The husband later was sentenced to six to 23 months for aggravated assault.

She was sentenced to two years of probation, but fell behind on the payment of fines and costs and had been scheduled for a probation violation hearing today. The hearing was canceled after she paid off her $375 debt on Sept. 21.

Walters is on administrative leave from his job as a teacher at Penn State McKeesport.

"In light of recent events, we felt that [a leave] was the appropriate thing to do," university spokeswoman Linda Curinga said.

Peck said he released Walters' name because of the volume of evidence against him. "Some details need to be released. It's a fact of the investigation," he said.

He would not identify the woman, however, saying, "It's our policy not to release the names of sexual assault victims."

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which has interviewed the woman several times, also is continuing its policy of not identifying accusers in alleged sexual assault cases.

Peck said his six-week investigation cast doubt on the woman's story.

Robert DelGreco, Bettis' attorney, said his office conducted a parallel investigation, although it was not as extensive as the ones by Greensburg police and Peck's staff.

Some of the information his investigators uncovered was forwarded to law enforcement officials, including statements by two college students.

After news of the police investigation broke in late August, the students contacted Steelers management to report that they had taken a class taught by Walters and had heard him discuss schemes to make money, including setting up a sex sting to extract money from Bettis.

The Steelers passed along the information to DelGreco, whose investigators questioned the students and passed along their names and information to Peck.

At that time, police were about to wrap up their investigation. But the students' statements prompted them to interview more people, including all of the students who had attended Walters' classes and several Steelers who had accompanied Bettis to Bobby Dale's on different occasions.

DelGreco said police interviewed linebacker Joey Porter, who had been with Bettis last year when a man whom investigators now believe was Walters tried to pick a fight with Bettis.

"That incident is what we believe prompted Walters to share with his class that his initial attempt to get money from a high-profile individual was unsuccessful," DelGreco said.

"Making false accusations to the police and conspiring to extort a public figure is wrong," DelGreco said. "On behalf of Jerome and his family, I can say we are all eager to put this entire matter behind us."

Steelers Coach Bill Cowher said he hoped Bettis' exoneration "gets the same amount of attention as the initial headlines got." But he said the case has not distracted the team.

Cowher said the matter illustrated that players are in the public eye and must be careful. "People may want a piece of you, a piece of your time, and there are people out there that will resort to different things. You have to be careful with the decisions you make and the situations you put yourselves in."

That was a bit unfair, Pete and stillers isn't a MAN. :banging:

He is innocent until PROVEN guilty and thus far, nothing has been proven. Considering the number of gold-digging women out there who have falsely accused other athletes of sexual misconduct and rape which have been proven as :bs:, I'd think you'd cut Ben a little more slack here.

Of course there needs to be an investigation. But don't you think think that the accused has rights, too? My husband was a free agent DE who was in training camp with the Jets and the Vikings in the mid 70's. His contract, with incentives was a whopping 20 grand. And women were all over guys like him when they went out, just because the were associated with the NFL. A 2 time superbowl winning QB, with a 100 million dollar contract, just might attract more than few women, too. (sarcasm inserted here). And some of them may not have his best interests in mind. If Ben is PROVEN guilty, than he deserves the same punishment as everyone else. So far, her story makes McNutty look like a mensa candidate.

Roethlisberger is already being sued by a Reno, Nev. woman, Andrea McNulty, who claims the quarterback sexually assaulted her in 2008. Roethlisberger has denied those accusations and a criminal complaint was never filed. No physical evidence was ever collected, either. Roethlisberger has asked for counter-damages in that case.

Besides the Lake Tahoe allegations, Roethlisberger broke his jaw and several other facial bones in 2006 when he got into a motorcycle crash while driving without a valid license.

He has also failed to "repeat" after shampooing and rinsing....and that is just as irrelevent to this situation as the accident was.

What I do find interesting is that after several years in the spot light Ben is hit with the 1st allegation, a case the seems to be going no were, followed a year later by a 2nd. Lets let the police do their work, until then you can believe the story or not as you chose. I chose not to till something much more concrete is reveled. Besides her knowing he's exact hight, and his weight to the pound.

My husband was a free agent DE who was in training camp with the Jets and the Vikings in the mid 70's. His contract, with incentives was a whopping 20 grand. And women were all over guys like him when they went out, just because the were associated with the NFL.

Spot on stillers. :thumbsup:

I have dated 2 pro athletes in my life and what you are saying is absolutely correct. Whenever we'd go out - even to grab a bite to eat - there were women coming onto them right in front of me, hugging up on them and rubbing themselves against them to get their attention. Both were total gentlemen and politely asked them to stop. On one occasion, we had to leave the restaurant because it got so bad. :horror: I didn't date either of them because of their stature in the NFL and NHL - I dated them because they were really good guys who respected me and treated me like a lady. Sure they liked to party with their friends and I'm sure some good natured flirting happened when they were out like most red blooded men, but it didn't bother me in the least because I knew who they were on the inside.

I'm in wait and see mode in this case and it wouldn't surprise me in the least if this chickee-poo is yet another money grubbing golddigger hoping to be in the spotlight for her 2 minutes of fame.

im not saying he is definatly guilty or not im just saying that alot of people seem to blame the women just because ben is the qb of the steelers. if he was clevlands qb the same people here saying he has to be innocent would be all over the other qb claiming he has to be guilty just like the ray lewis incedint. i hope and pray ben is inocent because i doubt we can make playoffs without him but either case he needs to stop putting himself in these situations. this is the 2nd time in a year that someone came out and said this. there are many athletes and actors that women go crazy over but they dont have these acusations against them because they dont put themselves in a situation were it can happen

She was considerably short on his WEIGHT! Additionally, the first case is moving through the civil process at the standard speed. The case is on track for a jury determination which more likely than not will be settled!

It makes me sick to see this all over the internet, TV, etc. with no charges having been filed against Ben. It also makes me sick to think that so many people automatically ASSUME that he's guilty just because some 20 yr old college girl accuses him of something, which we still don't know exactly what he's being accused of. For all we know, she's accusing him of touching her azz when she walked by. Why does everyone keep talking about a rape charge? There's been no mention of rape here. Sexual assault could mean almost anything.

Like I said previously, I'll reserve my judgement until we get some more facts. The fact that she had been mingling with Ben and his group all night while he signed autographs, talked to fans, etc. but yet didn't know his name sounds suspicious to me. It's also suspicious, as others have said, that she mentioned his height and weight exactly as it appears on nfl.com. No one is going to guess someone's weight as 241.

So far it sounds to me like just another person trying to make some $$ by making a baseless accusation while hiding behind the anonymity of our justice system.

I think the reason that rape or some kind of extreme assault is being assumed is because she was examined at a hospital after being interviewed. I don't think that happens if you accuse a guy of grabbing your chest or slapping your ass ya know.

What I find funny is that she could give his exact height and weight (which the weight is probably a little off from his real life weight lol) but didn't accuse him by name, only description...after partying with him most of the night. Just sounds fishy.

In a way I'm glad this is being investigated by police. I'm not happy about the situation at all, but this won't be drug out like the whole McNulty thing and definitive proof will be needed to find him guilty of something.

Actually...Lemieux was somewhat involved with a sexual assault case in '92, and I'm sure that he's made Crosby aware that not taking certain precautions can lead to a nasty situation.

Witnesses told police that Pittsburgh Penguins star Mario Lemieux was present when Minnesota North Stars forward Dan Quinn allegedly raped a 19-year-old woman, according to a court document filed yesterday.

The affidavit refers to the players only as "Mario" and "Dan," but says the alleged victim and witnesses identified Lemieux from a newspaper photograph as the "Mario" who was in the room during the alleged assault. Quinn identified himself by name to the women, the affidavit says.

"Mario" is mentioned only twice in the 1 1/2-page affidavit. He called "Dan" into a bathroom at one point during the alleged assault, the affidavit says, and later returned some beer-soaked clothes to the alleged victim and another woman who was in the room.

Roethlisberger has become talk of Milledgeville town. By Craig Schneider


The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Milledgeville – This small college town is abuzz that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is a suspect in a sexual assault of a college student at a nightclub here.

A 20-year-old college student has accused Roethlisberger of sexually assaulting her at a nightclub early Friday, March 5, 2010, during a night on the town near where he owns a lake home.

Milledgeville police say the NFL superstar and his 20-year-old accuser visited several bars late Thursday night before the alleged attack.

The quarterback has spoken with police, said his agent who, in a statement, denies the charges leveled against his client. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is assisting in the investigation.

The unidentified woman claims she was "sexually assaulted or sexually manipulated" by a man, police said. The woman, treated and released from Oconee Regional Medical Center, described her attacker as 6-foot-5, and 241 pounds, though she did not name Roethlisberger, who just turned 28, as the perpetrator.

"The woman approached one of our officers in the downtown area near Capital City saying she'd been sexually assaulted," by the suspect described in the police report, Milledgeville Police spokesman David McNeely told the AJC.

Police said the incident took place between 11 p.m. Thursday and 2:30 a.m. at the Capital City nightclub near downtown Milledgeville and the GCSU campus.

"He's been identified as being at the scene," Milledgeville police Deputy Chief Richard Malone said.

Malone indicated to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that the case is very much active. Investigators are collecting additional evidence, and more than a dozen investigators have been involved throughout the day. Investigators interviewed between seven and nine people, including the woman, Roethlisberger and everyone in their parties, the Post-Gazette said.

Ashley Madden, a student at Georgia College & State University, said she is acquainted with the girl who is the accuser. Police said the accuser is a student at the school.

Madden said she saw Roethlisberger and the young woman at two bars -- The Velvet Elvis and The Brick. The girl was sitting near him and they seemed to be getting along, she said.

Madden said one of her friends tried to take a picture of Roethlisberger, but “he snapped at her, saying ‘Don’t take a picture unless I’m ready.’ ”

She said she did not see him do anything inappropriate to the girl, and that other girls were also around him.

College students who gathered Friday night at the busy club area in town talked incessantly about the incident. They said that at first they could not believe that the superstar was in their town. They said he he was treated like the biggest man on campus.

Then, when they heard what police were saying, they were shocked over the allegations.

The students traded rumors in the cold outside the Capital City nightclub at 119 South Wayne Street, where police say the alleged incident occurred. Some said they met the football player at the club. Some said they knew the accuser. Their conversations were filled with speculation. Some took sides, blaming him or her.

“For a little Georgia town, something like this is big,” said Brandon Priest, 21, of Loganville.

Students said the superstar was approached in the clubs by many people who wanted to get a photo with him or receive a hug. He had a handful of large men with him, who sometimes blocked people from coming close, they said.

“Everybody wanted to talk to him,” said Charles Arp, 19, who is studying environmental sciences at GCSU. “I tried to talk to him but his bodyguard just pushed me away.”

Others said Roethlisberger was friendly and well-behaved, signing autographs, standing for photos and buying drinks for people.

“I went up and talked to him. He was real cool,” said Hayden Lewis, a student at the nearby Georgia Military College.

Several students who said they know the accuser said she is a good person. Several said that Facebook sites and texting have lit up with news of the allegation. They said she has taken down her Facebook page.

“She’s a fun, outgoing sweet person,” said GCSU student Beckett Johnson, 21.

According to various media outlets, Roethlisberger has a winter home in Reynolds Plantation, a resort community on Lake Oconee in Greensboro.

He's been accused of sexual assault before.

Last year, a woman claimed she was raped by the quarterback in 2008 in a Lake Tahoe, Nev. hotel room. Although no criminal charges were filed, the woman, Andrea McNulty, filed a civil suit against Roethlisberger to compel him to make a public admission and give her an apology and $100,000.

Milledgeville hardly has spent much time in the national spotlight. It is perhaps best known for its large mental hospital.

Friday nights come alive with scads of students swarming amid the downtown clubs. The young women were dressed up. Many were cold since they didn’t wear coats. The young people dodge in and out of traffic into clubs where bands play loud enough to hear them on the street.

One young man leaned out of a pickup truck to vomit, while the truck was still moving.

Beyond the club district, the town is quiet, with a Piggly Wiggly and a convenience store with a sign advertising beer kegs.

This is bad. Guilty or not it is very rare for that much effort to be put into an investigation involving a high profile suspect and for the state to just suddenly - no charges will be filed. This is going to get ugly about the end of next week or the beginning of the following. :banging:

So, we have to deal with this for next year and then probably no football for the following season.

If he is charged, I wonder if Goodell will wait for the outcome before he takes any action?

as for the ex, i obviously broke up with her. unlike some, hmhm, i dont do the sloopy seconds thing

Agree this could get very ugly within the next week or so. For his sake (and the team's), he better have done nothing wrong to that girl.

I'm still highly upset that he is in this position for the SECOND freaking time.

Somebody within the Steelers organization HAS to get through to him for his own sake and the sake of the team. And REAL soon. I'm hoping Dan Rooney has already had extensive talks with him.

First and foremost I don't want to say too much until we see what this girl's allegations are, and what if any evidence there is to support her charges.

But if there's one thing I feel comptelled to say it's that I can't automatically dismiss this situation as easily as I could McNulty's charges. Unlike McNulty this girl went to the hospital, and filed a complaint with the police immediatly afterwards.

Right now I'd have to say her credibility is less questionable than Ben's. I think it's outrageous at this point to insinuate she's some sort of gold digging s-lut.

Possible? Absolutley, but no less so than the possibility that Ben is a rather bad man in the way he deals with young ladies who refuse his advances.

Right now i feel as if the possibility of Ben being the Steelers qb for the upcoming season is no better than 50/50. It's not going to be a very good week-end for an objective Steelers fan I'm afraid.

I know what you mean, but things would not have looked that good for him had Quinn actually been convicted of rape. You know, with Mario being accused of being present during the attack and handing back the 19 year old girls beer soaked clothes and all. It's not like he's never been involved with the wrong type of women before. Just a bad example was all it was.

She didn't just "go to the hospital". Reports say that she approached a police officer with the accusation and they made her go to the hospital, which is standard operating procedure for this type of accusation. There may have been nothing wrong with her at all, it just needs to be on record.

While I have sympathy with any woman who has actally endured rape or assault, as the mother of a son, I can also say that the thought of my son being falsely accused of somthing like this is also terrifying. It goes both ways.

The biggest difference with Mario's situation is that it turned out to be an isolated incident.

The biggest problem Ben has at this point is how it comes on the heels of the McNulty civil suite. It's hard to extend him the benifit of the doubt with that still an open case.

I have a son too, so of course the thought of a false allegation is awful.

But I'll tell you this, I got married at 30, prior to that I played the field extensivley, the number of girls/woman that I had relationships with is fairly significant*, not once was I ever charged with assault. Now obviously I'm not the sort of target that a pro athlete would be, but there's a whole bunch of pro athletes throughout sprots that have never had this sort of accusation attached to their name once, let alone twice in an 18 month period.

The biggest problem Ben has at this point is how it comes on the heels of the McNulty civil suite. It's hard to extend him the benifit of the doubt with that still an open case.


Oh I don't disagree with you at all. That's why I brought up Mario (doing the smart thing) and getting married roughly a year later. And I'm pretty sure he proposed to Natalie shortly after this incident. He did the smart thing by that.

I may joke a little bit about it, but I'm on the same page with you on this. I'm not ready to cast judgment until all the facts come out. Some of what happened sounds a bit fishy to me though, and not just because he's a Steeler. It sounds to me like he was trying to do the smart thing by taking a number of people out with him, which is the best thing to do if you want to go out and party a bit. The thing with McNulty supposedly happened behind closed doors. Kind of a different situation. We'll see though. I'm interested to see where this case goes.

BTW i'm kinda taken aback by some of the "Steelers fans" responses here. Seems quite a few are rushing to judge him guilty.

In fact, i've noticed in recent years even before this crap a few fellow Steelers fans rushing to give negative response to Big Ben.

I've sat next to ppl at games seemingly waiting for him to make a mistake so they can bitch about him. I'm thinkin WTF dude I wanna punch you out. lol


It is the Steelers' fans DNA. Great fans, but we can't stop from ripping our QBs to pieces. They did it to Bradshaw and all along the route to Big Ben. Not that some of them didn't deserve some negativity, but even the likes Maddox and Stewart probably received more than they deserved. It is what it is.

Maybe it is pent up jealousy. Remember for every high school QB boinking the homecoming queen, there are hundreds of other guys saying, "what is she doing with that loser when she could be with me?"

this is a totally different outcry than the case with McNutty. the reason we are up in arms about this time is the fact that it happened again! he should no better. the guy is the face of a billion dollar franchise, he needs to stay away from trouble

I get that part. Hell, i'm totally pissed that he is in this GD mother-effin' position a SECOND FREAKING TIME. I place full blame for that on him.

But we gotta let the investigation bear itself out.

Can't blame the guy for going out a night and celebrating with friends. Supposedly the 2 groups mingled together at DIFFERENT establishments as well.

Something isn't sitting right with me about this either. But yeah, he's at fault for being in this situation twice in the last year or so. But we gotta see how everything unfolds.

My feeling is that it will either be sorted out or get VERY ugly by week's end. We'll just have to see which way things go i guess.

Sorry, you call what ever you like. My understanding so far is that he was talking with a girl he met in a public place. You may want to lock yourself away, but I would not, and my guess is neither would he. The only thing he may have done that makes him an idiot, is if what she is saying is true.

I'm sorry but if "what she's saying" is true, that doesn't make Ben an idiot, that makes him a criminal. Big difference.

Roethlisberger has become talk of Milledgeville town. By Craig Schneider


Students said the superstar was approached in the clubs by many people who wanted to get a photo with him or receive a hug. He had a handful of large men with him, who sometimes blocked people from coming close, they said.

“Everybody wanted to talk to him,” said Charles Arp, 19, who is studying environmental sciences at GCSU. “I tried to talk to him but his bodyguard just pushed me away.”

Ok...I want to know who these large men were that wouldn't let anyone get close to Ben....sign them up to be our Offensive Line. They sound a lot better than what we already have.

"We have not questioned him at all, but we are going to at some point over the next couple of days," Davis said.

-------------

A woman who asked not to be named said she saw Roethlisberger and the young woman at two bars -- The Velvet Elvis and The Brick. The girl was sitting near him and they seemed to be getting along, she said.

She said she did not see him do anything inappropriate to the girl, and that other girls were also around him.

Students said the superstar was approached in the clubs by many people who wanted to get a photo with him or receive a hug. He had a handful of large men with him, who sometimes blocked people from coming close, they said.

“Everybody wanted to talk to him,” said Charles Arp, 19, who is studying environmental sciences at GCSU. “I tried to talk to him but his bodyguard just pushed me away.”

Others said Roethlisberger was friendly and well-behaved, signing autographs, standing for photos and buying drinks for people.

“I went up and talked to him. He was real cool,” said Hayden Lewis, a student at the nearby Georgia Military College.

i asked how he was (she knew he had a rep as a man wh0re) and said she was fine with her, but rude to her friend cause she pronounced his name wrong. fwiw-both were hot and deserving of watressing at a place called "twin peaks" and she did not claim sexual assault.

Ben gets the benefit of the doubt, until he is proven guilty. Even with just his reputation there should more than just an allegation before his reputation is destroyed. Unfortunately,for him he probably won't be granted that benefit. And that does suck.


That all said, I really think we shouldn't be posting links to identify the alleged rape victim in a criminal case, unless or until she is shown to be gold digger. Or, as unstable like the twit from the civil case. Obviously not my decision - just an opinion.

Ben gets the benefit of the doubt, until he is proven guilty. Even with just his reputation there should more than just an allegation before his reputation is destroyed. Unfortunately,for him he probably won't be granted that benefit. And that does suck.


That all said, I really think we shouldn't be posting links to identify the alleged rape victim in a criminal case, unless or until she is shown to be gold digger. Or, as unstable like the twit from the civil case. Obviously not my decision - just an opinion.


They pulled the link down, and I read somewhere else that his accuser puller HER facebook page down, so this may just be some random chick. Sorry. I'm just gonna step away from the news for a while and hope this all goes away.

so your saying that any girl in this world would want to be with someone like ben because he is rich and famous?

I never said any girl...but you know what I've said is true. Why else would have fat Elvis and fat and hairy Morrison had girls screaming and crying and doing anything they could do to get backstage.

Yes, there are lots of women that would just try to be with him for his money. As another example...take Evegeni Malkin. Not exactly the best looking guy, and would most likely get little to no attention from women if he was just a somebody on the street. Give him 8.7 million dollars a year though and he's suddenly got a crap load of fan pages dedicated to him and girls throwing themselves at him every chance they get. Do you think Sidney Crosby (who isn't that bad looking, I'll admit) would have chicks show up at every hockey game (or at his workplace in this case) with signs that say 'Marry Me Sid' if he was just a regular joe schmoe? Money changes a lot of women (and men). Just a fact of life.

I heard a report that the accused described her attacker as having brown hair and brown eyes. There's nothing brown about Ben. :huh:

I need to take a nap - for some reason the fact that fat Elvis has made his way into this thread is cracking me up.:sofunny:

And you didn't just go there with Geno did you? :nono: (Actually, you're spot on. :chuckle:)

true but every girl isnt a gold digger. you surely dont think they are do you? infact most are not college syudents or grad's working in hotel managment. most gold diggers are bar tramps who are to stupied to get an education and to lazy to earn there own money. anna nichole smith was a gold digger and look at her. extremly stupied with no desire to make anything of her life on her own.

20 year old college girl illegally hanging around a nightclub in the wee hours of the morning and going bar hopping with a well known professional athlete and his buddies= bar rat hoping to get boinked in my book. Sorry.

P.S. I hope while she was "getting treated" at the hospital, they checked her blood alcohol level.

Consider this quote from Ashley Madden, a Georgia College & State University student who witnessed Roethlisberger act like a jerk when someone tried to take his picture on the night that the lights allegedly went out in Milledgeville. "[H]e snapped at her," Madden told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, "saying, 'Don't take a picture unless I'm ready."

We're heard chatter of Roethlisberger directing that same attitude toward persons in various contexts, and people of goodwill and pure heart simply don't treat others that way.

It's well known he hates kids too, unless, of course, they have boobs. :toofunny: :toofunny: :toofunny:

Uh, yeah, what I wrote was in response to someone who said "If he did it" which means, he assaulted her and probably raped the first girl. Does your tumbs down mean that, if he did it, you wouldn't kick him off the team and send him to the Raiders? You'd cuddle him and welcome him with open arms?

If he's innocent, OF COURSE none of us would want him off the team. Try reading the damn thread.

Funny, but I just checked Ben's "official" website and there's not a peep about this and to be honest there isn't a peep about much else.

But doesn't keeping this story off a forum (there HAD to be someone to start a thread), and restricting people from talking about it, make it look more like Ben is guilty? People aren't stupid.

Yet, this isn't the first time that site didn't make sense to me. :doh:

it dosnt say rape does it? i belive its sexual assult which can be anything from grabbing her to simple words

I think words may carry Sexual Harrassment Charges, not assault. Not completely certain though.

A Night Locked Up in a Cell inside of Paul Brown Stadium.

Anyway, back on topic. This case is VERY Sketchy. However, more chance for credibility since unlike the Reno case, it was reported within days of the incident. I still feel though this woman is after Ben's Money.
