Speaking of Bradshaw, Terry has always been a man of great candor and so I guess that I shouldn't have been so shocked when he blasted Big Ben a few weeks ago. His comment, "I know he doesn't like me and I've really learned to not like him" could very well sum up the absolute disdain that Roethlisberger has brought upon himself from nearly all Steeler fans and even esteemed Steeler alumni.
So how will NFL fans remind Roethlisberger of his misdeeds every chance they get? All you had to do was listen during the Steelers first round draft selection last week for an advance preview. While Roger Geddell announced, "With the 18th pick in the 2010 draft..." the raucous New York crowd chanted loudly, "SHE SAID NO, SHE SAID NO".
For Steeler fans everywhere, the sad realization may very well be that Big Ben's best days as a Steeler are probably now well behind him...barring one of the biggest behavioral makeovers in human history. If he wasn't already so deep in the Rooney's wallet, you can rest assured that he would be gone already.
ABOVE: The "Large One" in happier times with the Rooneys.
Will Roethlisberger repent and turn over a new leaf? Anything's possible, but when you realize how many photos there are of a drunk Ben, or shots of Ben actually pouring whisky down a co-eds throat, you begin having second, third, fourth, etc...doubts.
Roethlisberger may very possibly have sexually assaulted a number of young women while intoxicated which leads immediately to another question: Is he a sexual predator or simply an out-of-control alcoholic? Or both? Roethlisberger is clearly in need of some kind of an intervention, that's for sure. So for his sake, the sake of young women everywhere and of course, the precious NFL, Geddell was certainly more than justified by his actions.
Let's just hope that it works.
