"A picture taken of Roethlisberger -- wearing a shirt emblazoned with the devil on the night he was accused of sexually assaulting a 20-year old college student last week in Milledgeville, Ga. -- spoke a thousand words."

"It was in stark contrast to the image Roethlisberger portrayed upon joining the Steelers as the No. 11 pick in the 2004 draft -- one of a humble young man from a good Midwestern family who points skyward after touchdown passes as a way of honoring his maker."

This story reminds me of Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic.

Remember how he came out of High School as this super religious kid? Then a couple of years later he got a Cheerleader pregnant and was getting sued for Child support?

Not the same as just wearing a T-Shirt, but what might be true coming into a professional career, changes when you have tons of girls and money being thrown at you...

Like B.I.G. said... More Money, More Problems
Life is funny like that... a game you love turns into a game worth billions and it comes with a ton of pressure and temptation.

That life isn't as easy as we think.

Yes...but I found it interesting to read what Harris said and thought it deserves it's own thread. It isnt anything to get all upset about. Worked up over...ya know. :wink:

nope...

but I went to college with a guy who looked for the prettiest girl with the lowest self esteem every time we went out. These chicks would always cheat, always lie, always cry, always show up unannounced at 3AM...

and when word got out about them hooking up there was always 5 to 6 guys who had similar experiences.

McNutty had crazy written all over her face.

I believe the ritual of Ben pointing to the sky after TD passes has to do with his dead mother.

Then, why is he pointing to the sky? He believes she is somewhere, right? Never mind, it is a rhetorical question (for most, I guess).

I'm not saying he's not a Christian...after all, he was disciplined by the league for writing "PFJ" (Play For Jesus) on his cleats as a rookie.

I do!

I think the point here is that Ben is a confused young man. And seeing how his off seasons have gone I think this is a cause for concern. I know if I were paying him $102 million I’d be very concerned. But throw that out the window…if you wear “PFJ” on the field and then wear Satan on your shirt on nights out I see a very troubled person who needs some help.

I would be more than willing to give it a shot, dating Natalie Gulbis can't be that hard.

the point is Dee is this is a football forum not the place to preach your ideals which many people don't give a crap about. this isn't the forum for it and it shouldn't be the forum for it. and don't give me that crap about not reading it if i don't like it. get it the F out of here!

I guess I'm just not sure of the point of this whole shirt thing. Is it the belief of some that Ben used to be a good Christian kid but now he is caught up in his own ego and fame? That he has poor taste in clothing? What is the fixation with the shirt?

And let me state something I said in the Tiger thread. There are alot of poor ugly men who boast about being loyal to their wives. I have seen these guys judge those who get caught literally/figuratively with their pants down. On another board I believe a judgemental member called Tiger a piece of ish...sub human. These guys do not have the access or temptation that guys like Ben and Tiger have. They do not have 10's wanting to have orgies with them. I am loyal to my wife...but I'm not a chick magnet either. I would like to think that I could be loyal to my wife in any situation but I'm sure glad I don't have to find out. I'm not tempted beyond what I can stand.

I think Dizz stumbled upon the real issue here. Ben's choice of women...younger, not famous, likely very little money. It's almost like Ben is intimidated by more successful women. I'll tell you something...if I could have my choice of some hot girl on the street or Jessica Alba...I know who I'm going after. Ben has access to beautiful, rich and famous women but likes to involve himself with women who will "worship" him. Women he feels superior to. I believe Ben's "ego" is like everyone elses...false grandiosity covering underlying insecurities. And this is definitely biting Ben in the arse. It's something he might want to think about and work on.

Golfer Natalie Gulbis and actress Missy Peregrym. Not sure how long either relationship lasted.

Ben should only go out with women who are rich and famous themselves. He dated Natalie Gulbis once, she didn't sue him for anything afterwards and she's a heckuva lot better looking than that McNulty wench.

you know Dee... it's hard for me to articulate what ticks me off in this. I think the original article was very immature and had no basis in any important factual information. it's mud slinging by someone who has an agenda and doesn't give a crap about anything but their agenda.
why paint the guy as being a bad person because of a shirt?
what is the point in debating the guys religion?

I'm only slightly annoyed that you posted it. and honestly I have nothing against you, and have said many times that I like to read your posts (even when i rib you a little about trade ideas). I respect your opinion on religion and that you are not afraid to take a stance. I just don't think this is the place for it. too many emotions and opinions come into play.

Yea, those are not good people either....but that is not the point here as I understand it. Take a look at the bigger picture. You are young and I fully realize that I may have taken the same stance as you when I was college age. I am not trying to be patronizing, just realistic, so please take it for that. I fully understand where Dub is coming from and I think the big picture is and should be discussed here when it deals with our franchise QB.

yes, Ben should have been a real role model like brady, he should have knocked Natalie up then dumped her.
