Default I'm VERY disappointed with media

And the fans.

WPXI and 93.7 (the 'fan') can bite me. They are soooo disappointed that Ben was not charged. They couldn't care less about the case, other than its days of bringing viewers/listeners is waning.
Look at the pic that WPXI uses of Ben. It makes him look like a d-bag. Why did they do that. Are they reporting neutrally? Doesn't seem that way to me.
Rick Earl is still in GA trying to drum up any negativity he can about this case.

And Siebel and Starkey (sp? who cares) they just about cried over the news that charges were NOT being pressed. They know that they suck, and will probably lose their jobs because listeners numbers will drop to nil. No one wants to hear "Whats the bests rivalry in sports now.?" Well apparently its Siebel and the letter 'S'. Whats the deal with a radio personality that cant speak properly - but I digress.
All they do is plant the seed that Ben is still guilty. They also only let people on the air that agree with them. What's up with that. They move here from who-knows-where, and start pissing on our city - ARE YOU KIDDING ME.

And you holier-than-thou fans that want be crucified for nothing more than an accusation that a super prosecutor (that would love a high-profile WIN to help his Gubernatorial bid) could not find enough evidence that a crime had even occoured, let alone that Ben was responsible. Maybe, just maybe, he doesn't deserve the heat. The police and GBI spent A MONTH pouring over evidence that you and I will NEVER know of, and came to this conclusion.

And until someone presses charges and PROVES him guilty - this is still the USA and he is INNOCENT. So until then, get off your high horses and give the guy the benefit of the doubt. Maybe you all should look at yourselves before firing off stupid posts.

Ben owes you NOTHING more than throwing that ball to the best of his ability to win games. He doesn't owe you a straight-laced goodie-goodie life. He is a MAN and deserves the same freedoms that you and I had growing up.
When his arm gives out, then we will be done with him, just as we were with sooo many Pgh athletes over the years.

in defense of the media, any picture he has ever taken leaves him looking like a dumbass d-bag on his own accord-



i just loved the slicked back, mulleted, faux-hawk look he was sporting in todays address to the media.

To that effect I will say one thing. He's still guilty of bad enough judgment to put himself in a bad situation and put at risk(even if only slightly) his ability to merely take the field. Innocent or not, he could've gone to prison. People have been falsely convicted before, and it'll happen again. As long as he's under contract he owes us a straight-enough-laced life to keep his ass out of jail and on the field, and in all honesty he owes that to himself above all else. If he wants to go clubbing and bar hopping with sorority sisters, he needs to learn what a Sexual Consent Release Form is.

And before you go making the wrong judgment about me..... BB has my support as a fan. I believe he's innocent of everything EXCEPT bad judgment. I'm far from being the type of fan that you outlined in your OP.

Bad judgement how ??? Getting laid? spending HIS 100 mil as HE sees fit? Going to clubs near his summer home?
There was no crime. YOU are as guilty of a crime and bad judgement as he is. End of story.

He could be a member of the KKK in the off-season, it still shouldn't warrant any reparations from you or Goddell. PERIOD.

And @chislechest: who are you to make comments on his attire and style? Is that why he was hired, as a fashion model for you? Whats up with that. Is that why Kordell was a hated in Pgh - because of the bumps on his face - talk about shallow

But if he is found guilty of his crimes, then I will be the first to light the match while he's tied to the stake.

Until then...........
