    Bradshaw Rips Roethlisberger

    On ESPN News, Terry Bradshaw revealed a very strained relationship with Ben. He stated Ben was pissed at him for offering the advice to park his motorcycle before the accident. He went on to say that ever since then Ben has disliked him and he's learning to dislike Ben.

    Wow.

    It was obvious that Bradshaw thinks very little of Roethlisberger. He did mention something about Ben wanting to break his records and blew it off like he didn't care, but I don't think Bradshaw was motivated by jealousy. He genuinely dislikes the guy.

    Personally, I think it will ultimately cost him and taint whatever he does accomplish in this league if he doesn't change. The growing-up and getting smart part is obvious - another black-eye and he's likely getting the Santonio treatment. But Ben also needs to stop being such a huge douchebag (allegedly) if he wants to be fully embraced by the fans and be defined by his on-field accomplishments.

    That said, as long as he wins games I really don't care if he has the personality of Eric Cartman. Sure, it would be nice if Ben could become that guy we all love to root for and kids can look up to, but at the end of the day, I'll take the wins regardless.



    "I hate him. Everybody says I'm supposed to be polite when I talk to you all, but I hate him..." "He talks too much, he doesn't make sense, he's fat, he's sloppy, he acts like he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.

    "Not too many people have personalities like that and survive in life. I don't know how he does it."

    Bradshaw: Steelers QB needs to watch himself

    By Staff and Associated Press reports

    The six-time Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers don't like losing -- or being embarrassed. The family owned team is protective of its image.

    So when the Steelers were humiliated by two of their stars, they reacted with an uncommon display of anger.

    Among them is Shreveport native Terry Bradshaw, the Steelers' Hall of Fame quarterback who guided them to four Super Bowl championships. He took quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to task today for his conduct that led to a complaint that he had sexually assaulted a college student in Georgia. Prosecutors in Georgia announced today there is not enough evidence to prosecute Roethlisberger.

    Bradshaw said the star quarterback needs to be more careful.

    "He has got to realize who he is: He is an elite athlete in the National Football League. He is under a magnificent spotlight. He has got to be careful of what he does in the offseason," Bradshaw said. "The best advice my dad game me, Buddy, "You're a Bradshaw. Don't you dare embarrass the family name.' Because he knew the temptations would be out there. I hardly ever went to a club in 14 years in Pittsburgh. Count 'em on one hand. And I was petrified of the problems you could get into.

    "If you're single and walking into a bar with beautiful women and have them just fill your ego up -- and you ask yourself, would they pay any attention to you if you weren't who you are? Of course not. I'm not that attractive, and neither is Ben. So it's nice that you can do that."

    Bradshaw's comments came when he was at Squire Creek Country Club in Choudrant for the annual Terry Bradshaw/Kix Brooks Golf Tournament.

    He acknowledged there is no love lost between him and Roethlisberger.

    "When I told him to park the motorcycle, he got pissed. Then he had the accident (and injured himself)," Bradshaw said. "Since then, he doesn't like me -- and I'm learning not to like him.

    "He wants to break all my records. I say, 'Break 'em; I don't care. I've done my job. My job is over and now you have your shot.'"

    Roethlisberger's troubles aren't over. He must meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and could be fined or suspended under the league's conduct policy. He also is being sued by a woman who claims he raped her in 2008 at a hotel and casino in Lake Tahoe, an allegation he strongly denies.

    Another Steeler, Santonio Holmes, was traded Sunday to the New York Jets for a fifth-round draft pick after the Steelers learned he would suspended four games for violating the NFL's substance abuse
    policy.


    Holmes already had angered the club. After being accused in a lawsuit of throwing a drink on a woman at an Orlando nightclub, the receiver answered with a long string of Twitter comments in which he suggested a fan should try to kill himself and others detailing his love of partying.

    In Roethlisberger's case, the 20-year-old college student told police he sexually assaulted her last month at a nightclub in the central Georgia college town of Milledgeville.

    Prosecutors said there is not enough evidence to prosecute Roethlisberger, 28, who owns a home north of Milledgeville.

    The young woman's attorney said she asked prosecutors not to pursue the case. Attorney David Walbert said in a letter to Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit District Attorney Fred Bright that his client was not recanting her accusation. But the letter said she felt a trial would be too intrusive because of all the media attention.

    Re: Bradshaw Rips Roethlisberger

    Like Bradshaw made great decisions while here...wasn't he the guy who dissed the city & stayed away for so many years - even skipping the Chief's funeral because of his attitude? How many failed marriages & a strained relationship with his daughters & he's giving advice?....
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    I think he's a Steeler at heart now (Bradshaw), and besides, I agree with most of what he wrote.

    My


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    That was done after he retired, and he felt that the fans were too rough on him, but he never got in trouble with the law, and he had nothing against Art Sr.

    Sound advice from someone who has been in multiple divorces and cried like a wuss about his relationship with the fans, the city, coaches and owners...if he really wanted to give him sound advice, pick up the phone and call him and then don't talk about it.
    ours is not to wonder why just invert and multiply...

    Bradshaw is right on the mark.

    Honestly, I don't think Terry or Ben get it.
