and to think we passed on brady quinn when he fell into our laps (and we know he loves laps).

instead of having ben asking for free balls we couldve had a qb who wouldve just fondled the balls of the nike rep.

Or just perspective - would anyone believe the golf balls story if it allegedly involved Troy?

If anyone wants reassurance that not all athletes are self-centered jerks, read the P-G qoutes from Troy on his thoughts regarding his new contract.

I'm still trying to figure out what the big deal is........So what Ben asked for more golf balls and went on a ego trip....I don't think this makes him out to be Paris Hilton....lol

Me, too.

First, the article's author, Siobhan McAndrew, is a columinst for the Life section of The Reno Gazette-Journal. I believe there is a chance she misunderstood the scenario, especially when you consider her other columns like "Night Owwwt! Anything goes when it comes to club attire," "Win a dorm makeover; pretty toes," or "Putting your career into a To Go Bag."

She mentions Dan Qualye getting snubbed by the sunglasses guy, and two sentences later McAndrew writes, "But not every celebrity was freebie-fulfilled." Also, notice she didn't print any follow up questions to Ben or directly quote the Nike rep.

Look at slide 35 of 42 in the photo galleries at the The Reno Gazette-Journal entitled "ACC Golf Saturday." That photo and caption alone should explain why Ben needed more golf balls.

Controversy shopping and nothing more.

This is nothing to me ......... I don't care if Ben throws himself on the ground and puts on a temper tantrum, hitting his fists against the ground, because he wanted another pack of balls. I only care how he plays football and that he doesn't do anything that would violate league conduct policy.

You know, I am sure most pro athletes and famous people act like prima donnas, but this is a perfect example of someone getting paid way too much, way too young and things going to his head.

I hate hearing stuff like this. He better have a great year and earn this type of attitude.
Ben is GOD. Plain and simple. He is GOD. It's Ed Bouchette's and Ron Cook's fault. Yes, they are the downfall, not the jerkoffs at ESPN, it's the local media.

Oh Tony - you are so funny! YAY! (lol)....

P.S. HEE!

On the story - what's worse - a smart assed comment by your QB or him having a rap sheet longer than a Browns' losing streak? I don't give a hoot what his mouth spouts off outside of the football field, as long as his arm produces on it.
