He goes to a celebrity/charity golf tournament and is accused of raping a woman who after the alleged incident bragged repeatedly through emails about being with Ben. She never goes to the police to file criminal charges and waits for over a year since the alleged incident and then files a civil suit for financial gain. This same woman later lied about her current psychiatric counseling, claiming it was needed because of depression brought on by what she alleges Ben did to her. This is not so. In fact it was unrelated to any alleged interaction with Ben. It was from…get this…a bizarre relationship she had with a married man. This man’s wife created a phony e-mail account, posing as a soldier in Iraq, apparently in the hopes of gaining information about McNulty's relationship with the married man. A former coworker of McNulty's claims that McNulty "fell in love" with the fictitious soldier, and that McNulty began telling people they were engaged. The wife of the married man stopped the correspondence, and McNulty then began telling people the fictitious soldier was killed in action.
Then Ben goes out with friends to celebrate his 28th birthday. He is single man, not married who actually shows some responsibility and takes necessary precautions to guard against any problems by hiring body guards, two of which are off duty police officers. While at a club he is then accused of sexual assault by a young woman. This same young woman presented an I.D. that was fake, that lied about her age so she can enter a over 21 club illegally. While at the club she drinks so much that she registers a 0.20 alcohol level when authorities administered the test to her after her allegations. She was 10 times over the legal limit for drivers younger than 21. This incident occurred at a club where there were over a 100 people at and not one witness has come forward to validate this woman’s claim. This woman then now is no longer cooperating with investigates in this matter and failed to show up for a scheduled second interview last week.
So Again…I ask..what is it that Ben has actually done wrong?
I say Roger Goodell should go you know what himself.
There is a article on yahoosports that headlines “Roethlisberger threatens Steeler credibility”. I think there is no credibility in a league/sport that attacks and stains a man’s character over the lies of one unstable woman and another who was so intoxicated that she could hardly stand. And both of these women lied through their teeth.
