The rumor now is Ben is banging Bradshaw's daughter - that's why he hates Ben.

There are many who will argue (fairly) that no one has ever accused Terry of forcing himself on a woman. This may be true. But just to play devil's advocate (and to put things into a little bit of perspective), in those days, women were more marginalized. They were far less likely to speak out on the things men would do. Getting hit on and "chased" were the social norms. And rape was shameful. Not saying Terry raped anyone - not even saying Ben raped anyone - but the definitions of sexual assault were, I think, a little different in those days.

What I guess I'm saying is, it's entirely possible that Big Ben and Terry Bradshaw, "chased" women in the same way - but what was once considered "boys being boys" is now considered "sexual assault". Not to mention, our culture was not so hung up on suing people left and right.

I was wondering if anyone else thought the same thing I was about Terry just being an idiot. Today's players are so much different than back in the day and Terry did win 4 super bowls, but he did it with the Best Defense of That Time. I love the Steelers and have for 40 years, but I also know that that Defense of the Steel Curtain Days could Not stand up to today's offenses. That being said, I have seen enough of Terry Bradshaw to know that he would not most likely be a more like Mark Malone QB against today's Defenses. He made bad passes and through A Lot of INT's. I love Ben, and I hope that all the accusations are false about him, cuz he is one of today's Top QB's for sure.

He gave fatherly advice to Ben regarding riding a motorcyle - without a helmet no less, and Ben completely ignored and mocked him - only to wind up in an accident which almost killed him - and caused us to not repeat as SB champs. To top it off, Ben continues to act like an immature jerk , especially to college co-eds which ultimately gets him into the biggest disaster of his life. Humiliating and disgusting facts see the light of day and he becomes one of the most despised men in America - esp among women. So yeah, I can see where TB might be jealous of Ben - NOT! Stupidity reigns supreme - there's alot of it going around it seems.
I agree 100%, i do like ben as a quarter back and a football player, but he is not acting like someone in his position should be.

Bradshaw has an opinion on this because he's paid to have opinions on this. He's not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree, and never was. I suspect he's harder on the Steelers and on Ben for two reasons:
  • In his mind it makes him more of a "legitimate" journalist to be harder on his old team;
  • I suspect he's never gotten over not being drafted by either a New York or an LA team, to make his transition to the Big Time that much easier.
Just guesses on my part. Doesn't matter. He helped bring us four titles, and we should be thankful.

he did start going out and trying to fit in, but in no way did he try to use his influence on women or bone chicks in bathrooms.

im not defensing terry's comments, and definitely dont think ben is guilty of anything, but terrys actions were much more innocent.

lets not forget, bradshaw got married (X3). while he is always accused of failed marriages, he's never been accused of forcing himself on women.

its possible he was guilty of infidelity, but that is not what his books are about.
Tony how is "I went to every honky tonk and chased every woman" being taken out of context?

It is a very revealing quote in light of Bradshaw denouncing Roethlisberger repeatedly for "the way he treats women".

Even if Bradshaw used that example to show how he turned the life around how is "going to every honky tonk" any different than the modern day equivilent of "getting fvked up and fvcking every bitch in sight?"

By the man's own admission he partied hard and chased a lot of skirt.

I've said it before, the main fault in Bradshaw's venom against Ben is he assumes Ben's guilt without any proof.

"Without any proof" is overstating the case. Just because the Georgia Bureau of Investigations couldn't satisfy their legal obligations so as to proceed doesn't mean "there's no proof." To your point, though, in our system he is innocent until proven guilty... or until Glenn Beck declares him guilty, whichever comes first.

Actually he's right there is no proof. Outside of contradictory witness statements by the accuser, and her subsequent refusal to talk to authorities what "proof" do you know of that indicates any guilt of a crime?

I echo your words. I have never seen so much hate well I have (look at the elections) but that is what it is Hate and not just a dislike. Bradshaw should just get over it and stop his Whining.
