^^This post is spot on. As a sports fan, I get tired of seeing the same team win all the time (unless it's MY team, of course). And there are still Steelers fans who haven't forgiven Ben yet. So if you're not a Steelers fan, chances are you're not rooting for Ben and the Steelers.

it's easy for fans of other teams to sit back and point fingers all while knowing, but never admitting, they'd take Ben in a heartbeat if they were guaranteed he'd bring the same success to their team that he did the Steelers. at this point in their lives, Browns fans would take a convicted murdered for a QB if he could bring them a Super Bowl. Jets fans last week were talking shit about Ben even though their QB was accused of the exact same thing. it's just the typical hypocritical, two-face society we live in. say all the right things and then do the exact opposite.

Yep - there is a sports talk host in Atlanta, John Kincaide (he also does ESPN radio Sunday morning) who was ragging on Steelers fans for rooting for Roethlisberger. Several years ago Kincaide was leading th charge agsinst Michael Vick here

Kincaide is from Philly and admits to being a big Eagles fan - after taking off on how anyone can root for the Steelers with #7 at QB, Kincaide was asked how he can still root for the Eagles with Vick as QB. Kincaide said although he still deplores Vick's conduct he roots for the Eagles as a team, not the player. Which pretty much answered his own question on how Steelers fans can still support their team.,

As Jerry Seinfeld says, I am rooting for laundry (black & gold in my case) - it would be nice if all the players were like Polamalu off the field but it does not work that way.

Some people are such idiots. I post on another board occasionally and most of the people there are rooting for the Packers either because they think that Green Bay is due another Lombardi or because rapist this, rapist that. I know there's no convincing some people out there, so I've pretty much given up on trying to defend Ben to anyone who won't even acknowledge that he might not be guilty. Because to these people, it doesn't matter no charges were ever filed, the "victim" dropped the case, the previous accuser was such an obvious flake that it throws the "serial rapist" theory completely out the window, etc.

But anyway, all of that aside, I saw this one idiot claim that, because Ben is in the game "the Super Bowl will be another snooze fest like in 2009." ARE YOU F***ING KIDDING ME? I've heard people - even ones who hate the Steelers - admit that was one of the most thrilling Super Bowls of all time. Some analysts even proclaimed it to be the best ever, with Ben's game winning TD strike to be the best play ever in a Super Bowl. And don't give me the "he's a rapist now so none of it matters" crap. The game was played before any of these allegations cropped up. If OJ's amazing play isn't negated by what he did later in life, then Ben's SB heroics shouldn't be affected by what he was accused of doing.

**By the way, I know OJ also was never found guilty, but that is a different scenario... he was formally charged, he fled from police, he went to trial, there were numerous accounts of him abusing his wife, etc. As for Ben, according to Sports Illustrated, what passes for "evidence" that he's a rapist is apparently skipping out on the bill at a couple of restaurants.

And I also don't think Ben is going to write a book in a few years called "If I Did Her."

This is the problem with people, they are stupid. I've been reading the same thing and it's BS. What, Ben is supposed to think that if the Steelers loose the Super Bowl it's because of some off the field situation and that he deserved to loose? LOL. People are so dumb. If the Steelers loose, which they won't, it's because the Packers played better or the refs screwed us lol.

Yes, if the Steelers lose the Super Bowl, look for Ben to post the following on his twitter page:

"I PRAISE YOU 24/7!!!!!! AND THIS HOW YOU DO ME!!!!! YOU EXPECT ME TO LEARN FROM THIS??? HOW???!!! ILL NEVER FORGET THIS!! EVER!!! THX THO..."

I agree. We lose it's because the other team played better. But JESUS I have never seen another Pro Athlete get crusified like Ben has, and this with easily the most PROOF that not one, but BOTH Women are outright liars! I agree Ben maybe showed some Immaturity in the Georgia Incident....like trying to have AGREED upon sex in a bathroom...cause that is Immature. But it is NOT Illegal, or criminal in any way. I mean why don't we just get it over with and call Ben the " Anti-Christ " ?


Hell we can Issue him a new uniform number as well....how about # 666

Face it....those that keep attacking Ben are just jealous that he's back to the SB after all that happened an they cant believe it. Never in their wildest dreams did they think he would make it after a 4 game suspension.

You get accused of rape twice in less than eight months, your public image is going to take a hit. Fair or not, this isn't a mystery.
