The charges* filed against Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger this weekend are serious, and in no way do the Ladies… condone such acts. Sexual violence is disgusting and pathetic, and should not be committed by anyone at any time. We doubt many of you would disagree.
*If you haven’t heard, Big Ben faces counts of assault, sexual assault and batter, false imprisonment, false pretenses, fraud, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Story here. If true…not cool, Ben.
HOWEVER, I couldn’t help but smirk at the line he allegedly laid down on the Harrah’s employee who filed the suit. From the PFT article linked above:
In the civil suit…McNulty alleges that Roethlisberger asked her to come to his hotel room to fix the television, and that he thereafter forced her to have sex with him.
“Hey baby, you wanna come upstairs and…fix my TV?”
Come ON, Ben. I’ve heard some awful lines from athletes, but really? You’re a Super Bowl-winning quarterback with a crapload of money. But you need ploys like THAT? You deserve a heap of trouble, even if that is the only thing that turns out to be true here.
