Another Close Call For Ben Roethlisberger

Do you think he'll change his ways now?
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will not face charges after a college student accused him of sexually assaulting her at a nightclub last month, authorities said Monday.

"Therefore there will be no arrests made nor criminal prosecution against Mr. Roethlisberger," Bright said.

The woman told an officer Roethlisberger sexually assaulted her early March 5 at the Capital City night club, where he was drinking with friends shortly after his 28th birthday.

Bright said the investigation showed the woman was heavily intoxicated that night. She and her sorority sisters had met Roethlisberger at a different bar earlier in the night, and he invited them into a VIP area at the Capital City club and ordered them shots. When the woman walked down a hallway to a small bathroom, Roethlisberger followed her.

That's as good as calling Roethlisberger a complete and utter douchebag in public. All of the passes I have given him in the past are mistakes on my part; this young man has a character issue, and I am thankful for one thing: the franchise he plays for deals with character issues as well as any franchise in all of professional sports.

This is really a sad day for the image of the NFL and the players who play the game. Roethlisberger is an elite athlete, and a tremendous talent. He's already in possession of more than most players ever see in a full career; too bad his ten cent head can't appreciate what he's desperately trying to piss away.
