Lawyer backs off on allegations of other Roethlisberger incidents
Posted by Mike Florio on April 13, 2010 5:15 PM ET
Earlier today, a Boston attorney claimed that he investigated six months ago claims against Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in Las Vegas that were "absolutely identical" to the Georgia allegations that recently were resolved via an announcement that there will be no prosecution. Harry Manion also indicated in an appearance on WEEI that there were others, too.

"There's a whole litany here, not only my experience, I have connected with several other people that have experience," Manion said. "And you know, there's only so far that he said/she said will get you. There's only so far that paying hush money will get you, if hush money is paid."

Now, Manion is singing a different tune. It started with an e-mail from Manion's office to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: "Mr. Manion did not mean to express or imply that he has any information that Mr. Roethlisberger engaged in any illegal behavior."

Sure, maybe he didn't mean to express or imply anything. But he sure as hell did.

Manion later elaborated directly. "I don't have any details at all," Manion told the Post-Gazette. "I was retained by a family. It went nowhere. I have no specifics. All I know is it involved an evening with Ben Roethlisberger, and I never got any of the details. I offered it [on the radio show] only because it was such a similar situation -- a young woman at a nightclub asked, invited into a VIP area."

In other words, even guys with advanced degrees aren't immune from the misguided belief that the words uttered on a radio show evaporate permanently into the ether, never to be heard from again.

Listen Dee...you let your ego get in the way of you enjoying yourself here. The mods have rules...they are not meant to insult you. They are there to keep the Steelers page as clean as possible. Having a million posts about the same topic makes it difficult to find draft news. That's the way they do things here. No need to get your jock strap in a bunch.

I'll bet if you read all 7 pages, you wouldn't have had to create all those redundant threads.

Give DD a break. I find it easier to read the latest news here instead of having to go to another area. Move it after 24 hours if you have to, but not the latest news.

well maybe if DD could participate in an active thread that is already on the first page and near the top of the posts, all that information that you wanted to read would be easier to find.

There seem to be some outspoken critics, but I like having the Ben legal drama and related b.s. on one page with actual football related content on another. I just popped a second bookmark on the toolbar -- it isn't that tough, and it actually makes the forum more user friendly, IMHO.
