BAHHHHHAHAHAHAHAHAH ... SCREW YOU BOUCHETTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ben said "taken completely out of context"

"the question I was asked was, "if you could have anything other than what you have RIGHT NOW, what would you ask for?"

even went as far as saying "They acted like I JUST said it, I said it over a month ago to some guy in an interview, and well here in pittsburgh they love the steelers and gotta find somethin to write about, i called hines and we had a laugh about it after"


last thing he said was "have not at all ridden a motorcycle, want to retire a pittsburgh steeler just like marino in miami, kelly, I wanna be the guy here forever.

Oh and he didn't take a shot at cowher, at all, and lemme tell you the opportunity was there. Second question asked was comparing tomlin and cowher. Didn't even mention cowher, just praised tomlin, didnt even have a subtle "well boy it was a lot more fun this year", or anything


I dunno where you are ATL Dan, but you can hop off Bullchettes nuts now, and see that infact, he had nothin else to write about and tryin to stir up some trouble.

He was asked this over a month ago....so that means that Ed was just saving it up for the off-season, knowing full well that Steeler fans would freak out when it hit the paper. I'm glad at least that Ben and Hines were able to laugh it off.

Now I'm back to being ticked off at the media, for manipulating us as much as they do the players. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

BTW, this is off-topic, but if you've never heard Frank Caliendo's Rome impersonation, it's completely hilarious and spot-on. That guy is a freak of nature.

Default Re: Ben On Rome is Burning ... RIGHT NOW... ESPN GOOO!!!

all is well. according to Evil Ed, ben is too busy ripping tall receivers these days:

Quote:
Even Ben Roethlisberger, who pleaded with the Steelers after the 2004 season to keep Burress, believes his former receiver has flourished with the Giants.

"Nothing against Plax," the Steelers quarterback said recently, "but Plax looks like a different receiver than I ever had here or who was here before I was here."

nice to know ben is an equal opportunity hater of anybody who catches the ball.

it does seem like 1 simple (probably 10 minute) conversation with ben is being stretched into multiple offseason articles for the local fishwraps.
