Thread: So what is it that Ben actually has done wrong?

    Re: So what is it that Ben actually has done wrong?

    This whole "poor Ben, he's a target because he's a famous rich QB" is really wearing thin. We Steeler fans like to favorably compare Ben to Tom Brady and Payton Manning for his on-field performance, and rightfully so. I would take Ben over either Brady or Manning today for various reasons. But here's an off-field comparison that isn't particularly flattering for Ben. Number of times accused of rape/sexual assault: Ben - 2, Brady - 0. Manning - 0. And it's not like Brady or Manning have any less of a target on them than Ben does. They were famous and rich before Ben was. Brady may have fathered an illegitimate child, but that was with a supermodel, while he married another supermodel. Come to think of it, when was the last time any rich, famous NFL QB other than Ben was accused of rape/sexual assault? There is clearly something else going on here with Ben's conduct.

    People making a lot less than him, and who don't represent the "face of a franchise" have higher expectations than just "not getting charged or arrested". It's not too much to say that Ben should accept the same standards of behavior and act accordingly.

    If it were an impossible task, well that would be one thing. But there are a lot of other high profile sports figures (Brady, etc.) who manage to live their lives without being accused or rape or sexual assault twice a year. Ben should be one of them.
    So you believe that just because Ben is the face on the Steelers franchise and he makes over a 100 million dollars that just by being at this night club he was doing something wrong?

    You do not believe that maybe these two women sought Ben out to intentionally gain financially with a bogus lawsuit?

    If you and your buddies went out to a night club and celebrated your birthday and did nothing wrong other than drink, dance, and carry-on in celebratory way, is that doing something wrong?
    he shouldnt be putting himself in bad situations. ben seems like a good guy and i dont think he is guilty but this is the second assault accusation in one year!! how many other nfl players do you know of that get accused of sexual assault this consistently? i cant think of any. its not about doing something wrong or being a shady person its about being smart and not giving low life skanks the opportunity to get a piece of your 100 million dollar contract

    Oh ok you are criticizing him for simply not being smart?? OK...cool...so again he really hasnt done anything wrong. [/quote:hlpjsq6d]

    yes thats right i am saying he is an idiot who puts himself in bad positions. i dont think he is a bad guy but when you make 100 mill you cant live the same lifestyle as someone who makes 40K a year. also riding a motorcycle in a busy city without a helmet isnt all that bright either. he shouldnt be putting his career in jeopordy
