It's starting to feel like the Tiger Woods situation, "stories" are just coming out of the woodwork...



The 572 pages of documents released on Thursday by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation likely contain plenty of useless and irrelevant stuff. But, apparently, the materials contain some interesting information that could make things even more difficult for Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Buried in an item in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution regarding the newly-available materials appears reference to an "unsubstantiated allegation" that a "drunken Roethlisberger" made an "unwanted advance" at another Milledgeville-area woman on an unspecified date during a party at Roethlisberger's house in the area.

Per the GBI information, Roethlisberger allegedly pulled down his pants and told the woman she could "do whatever she wants." A week later, he allegedly forced his hand up the same woman's skirt.

The woman was able to get away, and her father advised her not to file a formal criminal complaint.

If this stuff keeps coming out, Ben is going to get the Pacman treatment.

So he went after her once and she went back for more? 4 stories of assault by Ben, but no one wants to do anything about it but one and all she wants is money.

Jom, you are always first on these stories. I wish you weren't. It is beginning to look like you are enjoying this like a real Bengals' fan would.

That's a good point.

On the other hand, doing something about it poses a huge risk/reward conundrum. He has money. You don't. If you lose you get nothing and you are out the lawyer's fees. After all the burden of proof is on you. If the fanbase finds out who you are, you could very well start getting death threats from the toolhead segment of that fanbase. It's extremely problematic.
