Default Ben drinking again?

Some peeps I know in the Burgh say it is known that Ben
is back in his party mode. I even heard he went back to his
party mode at the Super Bowl, and some are blaming that
for his sub-par performance in the game, where he had 2 minutes
and the ball, with a chance to win the game. Usually he wins those
games, but vs. GB, he faltered and didn't pull it off. Many blame it
on too much drinking, hurting his focus on the field. I can't say
I know. Anyone in the Burgh seeing signs of Ben partying it up again?

I personally do not mind if he is partying, as long as he stays off the police blotter (in other words, using some moderation).

I don't even care if he uses much moderation, as long as it's not in a public
place. He absolutely can't afford to be out and getting snookered in public,
which comes with risks he just can't afford to flirt with.

Did you know? Many major govt. officials have aids that are to never
leave their side if there is a female with them (other than girlfriend or
wife, of course). Why? So there is no chance of a woman saying any
hanky panky went down, like that poor bastard who was running the IMF
bank, who was arrested purely on that woman's say so. Apparently,
that is enough to arrest someone on: one female claiming there
was some kind of sexual harassment or attempted rape. If he is
innocent, he sure as shit ain't being treated as such. They wouldn't
even give the guy a bail.

I don't care as long as he's not as bad as he was a year ago. There's a big difference between hitting up a bar with friends semi-frequently in the offseason and bar hopping in some random town in a different state with a crew and bodyguards, getting all out smashed, using VIP rooms and picking up random skanks along the way.

I mean, I can't say anything because I haven't seen him anywhere or anything, but all I'm saying is that just because he's been spotted at a few bars in town doesn't necessarily mean he's in "party-mode" or anything.

I don't believe the Super Bowl should be blamed on him drinking, he played a damn good second half and he's still human, just because he had the ball in his hands on the last drive and didn't end it the way he did Super Bowl XLIII doesn't mean he's lost a step or was out there drunk or lacking focus or anything. You can't win em all.

Unfortunatlely there are going to be people who freak out any time he gets within a 5 mile radius of alcohol now...

Maybe that had something to do with him being, oh I don't know...THE CHIEF OF THE IMF, an extremely influential and powerful international organization. No flight risk there huh?

Just curious...in your mind, does there have to be multiple women accusing a guy of rape at the time for him not to be considered a poor bastard? You do know that rapes usually don't have witnesses right? Who's "say so" are they supposed to be arrested on? If it was your mother, sister, aunt, wife/girlfriend that claimed they were raped, wouldn't you want someone to take them seriously? Plus this guy definitely was a flight risk. He was basically caught trying to skip town during his arraignment....I mean trying to rush off to a lunch appointment in France.

I know there are females who cry wolf sometimes...but that line of thinking you posted is just kind of cold and detached.

As far as Ben goes...haven't heard a thing about him partying, but hopefully the knucklehead knows not to put himself in precarious situations anymore.
