Ravens' PR man contrasts Flacco, Roethlisberger

Posted by Michael David Smith on March 27, 2010


Public relations people usually try to be diplomatic, but the Baltimore Ravens' PR man took a little shot at Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger at the annual league meetings this week.

The shot was taken during the media breakfast for AFC coaches, where about 30 members of the media waited to grill Steelers coach Mike Tomlin about Roethlisberger. Only five reporters wanted to talk to Ravens coach John Harbaugh.

Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun reports that Ravens public relations executive Kevin Byrne observed the sparse crowd around Harbaugh's table and made a joke contrasting the personal lives of Roethlisberger and Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.

Said Byrne, "I guess that's what happens when you've got a quarterback who prefers to spend his nights watching TV on his mom's couch."

Apparently he forgot Ray-Ray's checkered history...not to worry, I'm sure his team of "saints" will provide him an opportunity to eat those words sometime.

Yes, the moral degenerate wins two super bowls… And incidentally, where’s the focus on his past charitable actions??? Shouldn’t his contributions and financial donations mitigate this perceived lack of morality?
Two quotes which define his altruistic nature: “Roethlisberger is quickly becoming the face of NFL charity work and the league itself.”
“The former University of Miami of Ohio quarterback was honored Thursday with an award by the league and its partners for his community service. He recently made headlines for a series of financial donations to municipal police departments.”

Great post! While Ben has not been charged of any wrongdoing, he has indeed been cited by the league and organizations around the country for his charitable work. This man is no thug.

I don't have any problem with the comment. He isn't saying Ben is guilty of anything. He is saying his QB has a more boring private life and thus flies under the radar. Sure, it can be construed as a slight, but it really isn't that bad even if it is.

It doesn't bother me. Plenty of Steeler fans liked to throw stones and players from other teams (Bengals, Ravens) who got into trouble. The truth is that no team has all saints on their roster. People should remember that these guys are really just entertainers. There are good and bad in that group just like in every other profession.

I really thought this was a joke regarding fines he's going to be paying in the near future to the courts. But maybe he did make donations to them.

Did the Ravens PR guy happen to remember his team just signed a guy who plead guilty to DUI and second degree manslaughter when he killed a guy a year ago this month?

Roethlisberger hasn't even been charged with anything at this point, but it has been proven in a court of law that Stallworth was legally intoxicated when he plowed down a construction worker with his Bentley, killing him, and getting off with 30 days in jail.

Hey, hey now. That's not fair. He was clearly referencing the Quarterback's only!! :wink:

Well, if we wants to compare QB's, then I'll compare WR's. While Stallworth is out drinking and driving and killing, Santonio Holmes is watching T.V. on his mom's cou...oh, D@MMIT!!!

That's why Santonio was upset. That girl was sitting on his Mama's couch and wouldn't get off!! :twisted:

That would piss me off also. :tt2
