The Sexiest Man in the NFL

Really, which one of us hasn't posed for a picture like this before? He's still in trouble and he's still a douche.
Actually, the headline should read "sleaziest" instead if "sexiest". Apparently "Big" Ben Roethlisberger has a problem keeping his hands and other parts of his body to himself, a lesson that most of us learn by kindergarten.

Last year the Steelers QB was accused of raping a waitress in the back of a Las Vegas restaurant. The charges were dropped but there is still a civil suit pending. After that incident you would think that he would be content with staying out of trouble, keeping his nose clean and not putting himself in a similar situation that would produce similar results.

But not Ben Roethlisberger! He has won two Super Bowls and delivered one of the most clutch passes ever seen in a game! He is now accused of sexually assaulting a 20 year old woman in a night club in Georgia (as reported first by Monster Mash). Now the story is getting a little deeper (haha, get it?), Ben admitted to police that there was "sexual contact", which is a big no-no. Apparently when in these situations it is best to keep mum on the whole thing until your lawyer is present. Now that he has made that statement to the police he has to stick to it and cannot change his story around.

The alleged victim also fell and hurt her head during the incident. How? Your guess is as good as mine. The police are also asking for DNA samples from Big Ben to match up with some samples found on the woman. She went to the hospital after the event took place. Ben's lawyer is not agreeing to let the police have the DNA.

I wasn't there so I have no idea what happened. It could be that he is just a jerk and made an ass out of himself and these girls are out to get him. I am not one that always believes in the old axiom "where there is smoke there is fire" but something happened here. It seems to me that Ben Roethlisberger has a sense of entitlement about who he is and may think that all women must want him. This more than likely leads him into awkward situations and he later finds himself in the trouble he is in. This is the second time something like this has occurred. It will be interesting to see how this plays out and how the NFL and the Steelers handle it.


  1. Here's the difference between when I posed for that picture and Big Ben:
    1) Ben IS wearing the same shirt I would have worn when I was 18, but Ben is 28
    2) When I posed with 20 year old girls, I was 20... not in college when they were in grade school
    3) May I reiterate he is a d-bag.
