Ben Roethlisberger Publicly Addresses Rape Accusation

Ben Roethlisberger Would Like You To Know That He Didn't Rape That Woman

7/23/09 in NFL   |   100%InjuryRate   |   1283 respect



Ben Roethlisberger publicly addressed the rape accusation that's been tossed his way this afternoon and it went exactly how you expect it would. He read a 60-second statement written by a lawyer where he said he was innocent and didn't answer any questions.

I still find it a little weird that no criminal charges have been filed in this case, but whatever. At least I know the Steelers won't repeat as Super Bowl champions this season. Rape accusations tend to be somewhat distracting.

Excuse me. You don't think pro athletes with hot wives or girlfriends are the prowl for all they can get? Welcome to the real world. Do you remember Dave Justice who used to be married to Halle Barry--just for starters.

Ben is innocent and didn't do anything to that woman. As any person know some of these women that call rape is lying just because they can do it and get get away with it.

good point. if this girl is going to take a run at him, she might as well try to get some cash- his lawyer is going to make her look like a hooker just like Kobe's did.

and clinton said....."i did not have sexual relations with that woman"

The first sentence did sound a lot like "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky."  However, there's a lot less evidence in this case, in fact there's absolutely NO evidence and no criminal charges, and hence there's really no case against Ben.  Actually let me rephrase that, there IS a case against Ben, a headcase out for some quick cash.

I would never force myself onto a woman.

Yes, but he has seemed to force himself onto several hundred cheeseburgers this offseason.

For a second, I thought he was holding a press conference to say, "Hell yeah! I raped her! I'd do it again too! Momma's lock up your daughters! YEEEEE HAAAWWW!!!!!"

I don't know if he raped her.  I think there is strong evidence that he did force her go to the down to the hotel buffet to get him some extra pudding though.
