Ben's accuser has a big problem

We mentioned last night the reports regarding the contents of the motion to dismiss filed Wednesday on behalf of most of the Harrah’s employees who have been joined to the civil sexual assault lawsuit against Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.  The news accounts mentioned e-mail messages from the accuser that seemed to put several large nails into the coffin of the case.

We’ve now obtained the e-mails that were attached to the affidavit submitted by Harrah’s director of security Guy Hyder, and it sure looks to us as if the claims were grossly exaggerated at best, flat-out made up at worst.

The incident supposedly occurred on the evening of July 11, 2008.  The accuser claims that Roethlisberger lured her to his room by asking her to fix his television.

We mentioned last night the following e-mail that could, based on its timing, be a smoking gun:  “hail mary full of grace give me the strength not to go to his room and fix his television.” 

Last night’s news reports, however, didn’t indicate when the e-mail was sent.  Lawyer Calvin Dunlap apparently plans to hire a host of experts who’ll testify that inconsistent post-incident behavior from the accuser was nevertheless consistent with the actions of some rape victims who are trying to cope with the aftermath of the ordeal. 

But anything that she might have said before the alleged incident can’t find refuge in that same rationale.

And the e-mail in question was sent on Friday, July 11.  At 12:45 a.m.

Essentially, it was sent on what generally would be regarded as late Thursday night, a day before the alleged incident.

A day before the alleged incident.

So a jury is ultimately going to be asked to believe that Roethlisberger used a broken television as cover for getting the accuser into his room when, in reality, a day before the alleged deed she was musing about using a broken telvision as cover for getting into his room.

It’s a serious problem.  The immediate challenge for the accuser and her lawyer is to find a path out of this maze that results in minimal financial cost and overall embarrassment. 

Given the aggressive manner in which Roethlisberger has defended the case to date, we’re not so sure that there’s going to be an escape hatch. 

That said, we continue to think that the wisest move would be for Ben to give them one, if it means getting this thing behind him before the regular season begins.

    GOLD DIGGER…..
    this chick should have to go to jail or a psych ward.

  2. Holeinone09 says: Aug 27, 2009 11:41 AM

    This sure looks like a deliberate attempt to extort money from Ben and the other accused Harrah’s folks. Her attorney certainly had enough time to dig some of this stuff up before they filed the compliant.
    In any event, this looks like CASE CLOSED.

  3. stiller43 says: Aug 27, 2009 11:43 AM

    Screw that. Knowing that you’re going to win the case is enough for it not to be a real distraction.
    Ben! Keep it up (no pun intended) and embarrass her as much as you can!!!

  4. jj730 says: Aug 27, 2009 11:43 AM

    Honestly, if I was Ben I wouldn’t stop. I would sue her for defamation of character if he can. This isn’t something you just sweep under the rug. Make an example of her. Rape isn’t a “joke” and you just don’t accuse someone of it.

  5. KevinFaulk-an-a says: Aug 27, 2009 11:43 AM

    If I was Ben, I wouldn’t be too worried about getting this whole thing behind me.
    The most embarrassing part for him is that everyone knows what a hideous woman he bumped uglies with.

    Ha ha, let ‘em twist in the wind. Nice try gold digging sweetheart. Time to pay out of pocket.
    If anyone is turned off by my joy at this, I agree with Florio’s contention earlier that women who falsely claim rape make it harder on those who are actually assaulted to come forward. This woman is getting everthing she deserves, and if I were Ben I’d never relent.

  9. kj22679 says: Aug 27, 2009 11:47 AM

    not for nothing i’m leaning towards this chick made this up for money or whatever or what not but this disgusts me because every cry wolf case like this causes every real case to be treated like the criminal is as much a victim as the actual victim unless proven guilty and more then half the time the rapist goes scott free because of various issues that would never come up if we didn’t have andrea mcnulty’s running around trying to make money or whatever their goals are
    so if this does comeback like i think it will and ben’s cleared thx andrea mcnulty for once again undermining the justice system and making it harder for women that ARE actually RAPED to have their victimizers put where they belong, behind bars

  10. Darth Ringo says: Aug 27, 2009 11:49 AM

    It was probably much easier to extort money from wealthy celebrities before email, twitter and social networking sites had people logging their every move online.
    Skanks for the memories, this one is done.

    This broad should be sentenced to 10 oklahoma drills vs. James Harrison. Shes obviously broke and out of a job so this is the only way to repremand this biotch. She looks like a fullback anyways…

  12. Tim Biakabutuka says: Aug 27, 2009 11:53 AM

    lookes like ol’ Roethlisraper may be off the hook with this one. I still prefer to call him Roethlisraper regardless of what actually happened.

  13. EYEisPOED says: Aug 27, 2009 11:55 AM

    kj22679 is rite on, because of cases like this, rich ppl will now be able to rape whoever they want and play the “mcnulty card”.

  15. Zoneblitzdotcom says: Aug 27, 2009 11:59 AM

    Just to play devil’s advocate, since these are pretty severe accusations that one would hope wouldn’t be thrown around on a slim chance to get some $$, is it possible that she sent the email because Big Ben has been known to use ‘fixing the television’ as a way to lure people to his room before?
    I seem to remember in an earlier article on the story that when he asked her to come look at the television that she tried to find someone else to do it or go with her–if she knew it was his “cover story,” that might make sense.
    Not saying I believe it one way or the other–like usual, those of us not reading the court docs (and even some that are) probably don’t know enough to make more than guesses.

  16. Pudge Heffelfinger says: Aug 27, 2009 12:00 PM

    Actually, it’s possible that Ben called the office about the malfunctioning television earlier that evening on the 10th.
    The request sat on somebody’s desk for a while.
    Around midnight she got the order to go up and fix it.
    She ponders going up there, and sends the email.
    Then a few hours later (ie, the next day) she actually goes up to his room.
    That would be a 24 hour turnaround from when he reported the TV to when they actually sent someone to fix it. That sounds about normal to me.
    I don’t know what time (or even IF) Ben called down to report a malfunctioning TV. Maybe he never called. Maybe Harrahs’ has witnesses who will testify he NEVER called. On the other hand, maybe they have a record that he called earlier on the 10th.

  17. jamaltimore says: Aug 27, 2009 12:02 PM

    Wouldn’t suprise me if the Drama Queen, aka Fatburger, was in cahoots with the women to show that he can actually lure a women into his hotel room who’s not a steeler fan. Those not blinded by the gold and black see the guy as a fatheaded geek who may be the luckiest QB to play in the nfl. between the tackle to save the game against the colts in 06 and the ducks he throws that end up as touchdown he had to do something to gain some street cred.
    Here’s hoping is ankle or whatever injury he’s faking this week heals in time for Ray Ray and the Ravens to make him pay for raping or whatever he did with his hideous accuser.

  18. VoxVeritas says: Aug 27, 2009 12:07 PM

    Mr Magoo would want to get into Ben’s room if he thought he could, I’m sure. For an autograph, maybe a photo op. Wanting to get into a celeb’s room is not the same as wanting to have sex with the celeb. And wanting to have sex with a celeb is not the same as wanting to get raped by a celeb.
    Maybe she said the prayer in the context of resisting the urge to do her job and go into a room that she knows contains an oaf that looks like Frankenstein.

  19. BP says: Aug 27, 2009 12:11 PM

    You would think Dunlap would have dropped this already if all that Rapistburger’s lawyer says is verified.
    But he hasn’t. I can make e-mails all day that say anything I want them to. Is the veracity of these e-mails certain?
    Perhaps Dunlap is letting them go wild with their accusations, planning all along to apply the coup de gras at the appropriate time. Is he giving them enough rope to hang themselves? Is falsifying evidence a crime in a civil proceeding? I think so. Then there is the whole bizarre circumstance of the hotel invading her home and taking or deleting items from her computer before this was even a case.
    It either appears Dunlap is the dumbest lawyer who ever lived, or the smartest. It will be interesting to see which it is.

  20. hayward giablommi says: Aug 27, 2009 12:17 PM

    Well, if nothing else, Ben has given hope to all the fugly chicks in Pittsbugh that they too have a chance with him.

  21. topcide says: Aug 27, 2009 12:17 PM

    Leave it to the lawyer to say that he should relent and buy her off.
    F that. She dragged his name through the mud. Even if the case is thrown out fo court, there are people who will think that Ben is a Rapist.

    Now if he can only somehow erase from all existence the fact that he had sex with that ugly skank. I think that’s the biggest crime for Ben in all this. It’s hard to rebuild your reputation with the ladies after seeing pictures of this chick.

  25. Steeler4life says: Aug 27, 2009 12:26 PM

  26. JAYO MOFO says: Aug 27, 2009 12:27 PM

    If I was Big Ben I would punch her in the face and then spit on her….at least that would give her something so acuse him with. What a joke. WOMEN ARE CRAZY MAN, ALL OF THEM, C R A Z Y ! ! ! !

  27. Pockets Straight says: Aug 27, 2009 12:30 PM

    note to self: Do not stay at Harrah’s. If you complain about a broken TV on Thursday night, it won’t get fixed until after you bang a hideous employee the next night. Terrible customer service.

  28. ebr362 says: Aug 27, 2009 12:35 PM

    2 things:
    1) I am never staying at Harrahs, they seem to have TV issues………
    2) Ben should sue her arse and donate the proceeds to a local rape crisis center.

  29. mborz says: Aug 27, 2009 12:38 PM

    Okay, if we’re to believe these emails, which I know can (and I assume have already been) validated, then this is a sad day for women everywhere who have ever been sexually assaulted.
    If Roethlisberger doesn’t go after her for defamation, it would be nice to see some kind of punishment to both her and her attorney for undermining legitimate sexual assault litigation.
    Also, remember that almost all forms of e-communication should be considered public and can be obtained and validated by others (any email you send gets sent through a server somewhere which you can assume logs it — same with posts made here at PFT).
    Even though few people here actually follow this rule, it’s worth mentioning: Don’t ever say anything during e-communications (even under a pseudonym) that you wouldn’t be willing to stand up in front of an auditorium full of people and say personally. This includes work emails – and any other e-communication you do at work.
    Even though most of the time people don’t pay attention to it — it’s there — and it can be paid attention to.

  30. alewatcher says: Aug 27, 2009 12:40 PM

    Maybe she should change her name to Andrea McNutty.

  31. djvjr says: Aug 27, 2009 12:40 PM

    Hey Florio
    Normally I would not dispute your legal advise since I’m not a lawyer.
    However, in this instance I would not give them the opportunity to have any way out except with their head down and tail between their legs. (No Vick puns intended)
    Personally I would not give up until the judge dismisseds the case.

  32. BetterThanYou says: Aug 27, 2009 12:42 PM

    I’m starting to think that this case is less and less about money and more about a woman who is just bat$hit crazy. At the very root of all of this is a woman who is totally off the reservation. It’s psychiatric care she needs, not money. I’m not saying that money wasn’t a motivation here, but I think it goes a lot deeper than that. Everything points to her being a very deeply disturbed individual.

  33. stiller43 says: Aug 27, 2009 12:43 PM

    jamaltimore,
    2 rings, baby. Just because Flacco (and his 44 QB rating against the Steelers) can’t beat the Steelers, that’s no reason to get jealous! Ben will be back in form this season to beat the Unibrow and Mr. Murderer.

  34. mborz says: Aug 27, 2009 12:47 PM

    Tim Biakabutuka said: “lookes like ol’ Roethlisraper may be off the hook with this one. I still prefer to call him Roethlisraper regardless of what actually happened.”
    So you don’t think he’s a rapist but you’re still going to call him one?
    That’s pretty disgusting behavior, even here at PFT.
    There are plenty of other ways to get under Steelers fans’ skin without resorting to that.
    Rape is a VERY serious thing. And I’m sure it (unfortunately) hits close to home with people who read and post here.

  35. TSE says: Aug 27, 2009 12:51 PM

    Funny that Florio would post a time that the email was sent, like as if he would know? First of all, he didn’t even say the time zone of the emails, but does Florio know how computers work? I know email programs that record email times incorrectly if the user doesnt set their time settings correctly, and also, we don’t know what these supposed emails look like and if there is proof that they were sent at that time. There’s all kinds of reasons why a time could be inaccurate with respect to how the events actually unfolded. Yet Florio states when they were sent as if they were facts, which I can’t see what he could possibly have access to that would give 100% certainty as to what time it was when the sender pushed the send button. I really hate lawyers that speak assumptions as facts. I would never do that on a highly publicized blog, and I expect the same courtesy in return.

  36. PirateFreedom says: Aug 27, 2009 12:53 PM

    A bunch of forged emails don’t change the fact that Ben is guilty of playing for the Steelers.

  37. Reba says: Aug 27, 2009 1:05 PM

    I’ve been a Steeler fan my whole life but never for Rapistberger. He did it he did it he did it. What’s happening is all about strategy. The best offense is a good defense? That’s what this is. Any IT person who gets their hands on those emails can tell if they are fake or not.
    Ben is the biggest WHORE known east of the Mississippi. Look at his picture before the motorcycle accident and now. FUGLY! I also doubt he has anything large enough to come out to say hello. To top that he sucks as a quarterback…look at the stats. The defensive line won the season last year not the offense.
    Anyway you look at it, Ben’s name is tarnished and will have to deal being Rapistberger.

    I don’t like him anymore and needs to stay out of Lake Tahoe and Vegas. Gambling, drinking vodka red bulls gets you in trouble Ben. Like now.
    All 70 players on his team are now witnesses. If I was her atty I would subpoena each one to see what he has said about the case and if there are others like this just too scared to come forward. I bet there are. Ben you are one big PU$$Y!

  42. Darth Ringo says: Aug 27, 2009 1:38 PM

    Harrah’s has not one, but TWO tech guys on staff 24/7/365 to deal with fixing TVs and so on.
    She wanted to go into his room. She wanted to have sex with him. She wanted more than that and he didn’t reciprocate.
    Her case is toast.

    ====================
    You always want to offer an escape hatch, otherwise he will appear to be using his millions to destroy a woman with a history of psychiatric treatment. One thing to keep in mind is that psychiatrists and psychologists often recommend these fantasy scenarios to their patients – it’s not unheard of at all for a psychiatric patient to sue someone for sexual abuse due to an implanted suggestion from a psychiatrist under drug therapy, even though the incident never occurred at all. An example is from the Spring Shadows Glen psychiatric hospital case in Houston in the 1990’s, where multiple psychiatrists and psychologists were accused in federal criminal court of implanting ideas of abuse in their patients using heavy drug therapy and hypnosis in order to fraudulently bill their insurance companies millions of dollars.
    This case could be similar – after numerous rounds of heavy drug therapy and hypnotic suggestion, the woman truly believes something happened, so much so that she convinced a lawyer to come forward and file the claim, even though all evidence would point to a different conclusion. Ben would be wise to reach out a kind hand to a person who has been under incredible strain, and basically let her off the hook.
    I think her own lawyer would be wise to simply forgive her the legal fees. He is the one who may face the most scrutiny after this case is done, a la prosecutor Mike Nifong getting disbarred in the aftermath of the Duke Lacrosse case fiasco. Based on that earlier precedent, the attorney in this case may have much more to lose than the plaintiff. I would imagine if Ben’s legal team goes heavily after anyone, it will be attacking her attorney’s license to practice law.

It’s just fun to call him Roethlisraper or Rapistberger cuz it irks people like you…if you didn’t react like that, I wouldn’t do it. And steelers fans need to be knocked down a peg. They are literally EVERYWHERE and I’m tired of them infiltrating every single stadium with their terrible towels.

    still angling to get the lawyer paid. because naturally when a trained professional participates in a nuissance suit, the motive being to shake the harrah’s tree and see what falls out, irregardless to the plaintiff, they should certainly be compensated for their malpractice.
    if you don’t believe this righteous barrister is capable look up two things, the divorce procedings against the nevada governor, and cal dunlap’s history of campaign contributions.

    @Pudge Heffelfinger
    There are a couple flaws in the situation you described.
    1) Roethlisberger was a VIP in the hotel. It’s a five-star hotel. VIP’s in five-star hotels never have to wait 24 hours for anything. They would have bought a new TV before making him wait 24 hours.
    2) If it did take 24-hours, there would have been at least one maintenance person on the hotel grounds in that time frame. The accuser wouldn’t have had to fix the TV.

    I am not a fan of the Steelers or any AFC team so I feel I have an impartial opinion on this topic. The thing that surprises me the most about all this is the level of venom thrown around on this board by people that are obviously fans of rival teams. Apparently, Ben is only guilty of having sex with an ugly chick and playing for the Steelers. Hating on the guy is fine….Rival fans are supposed to do that, however pouncing on these rape allegations is down right immoral. Accusing a man of rape is a serious charge with life long implications. Spinning the circumstance against the man and calling him a rapist simply because you don’t like the football team he plays on is uncalled for and completely shameful behavior. I know a lady named Karma and she is a real bitch – you better be on the lookout because she might be coming for you.

  61. mborz says: Aug 27, 2009 4:28 PM

    @Tim Biakabutuka: What I said, which was apparently totally lost on you, has nothing to do with Roethlisberger.
    Sure, you’ll irritate plenty of Steelers fans by calling Roethlisberger a rapist.
    But my point was this: You’ll also offend people who don’t deserve to be offended — like real victims of rape, or close acquaintances of real victims who don’t enjoy seeing the word “rapist” thrown around for enjoyment and entertainment.

    Mr Magoo would want to get into Ben’s room if he thought he could, I’m sure. For an autograph, maybe a photo op. Wanting to get into a celeb’s room is not the same as wanting to have sex with the celeb. And wanting to have sex with a celeb is not the same as wanting to get raped by a celeb.
    Maybe she said the prayer in the context of resisting the urge to do her job and go into a room that she knows contains an oaf that looks like Frankenstein.

    Everyone LOOK OUT! Reba just crawled out of her cave, yawned, scratched her ass, and is posting her love notes about Big Ben again. In secret, she craves Ben and is pissed that Andrea got to him before she did.
    Reba, you know it’s true!
    And oh yeah, you are a MORON!
    Reba, when the case is dismissed, will you post an apology to Ben and all the other readers on PFT for the complete trash you have been spewing?

    Yep cgarsmoker, you nailed it… karma. It’s why that “Big Ben SEXGATE rolls on!” and anyone who named themselves “Rapistberger” will be doomed to see their already tiny genitals shrink even further. Until they become like GI Joe dolls.
    That goes for anyone who even joked about this.

  69. ICan'tCallIt says: Aug 27, 2009 6:03 PM

    I hope the truth comes out. Rape is a tough allegation. Not sure Ben is guilty or not, but the new information doesn’t really change his innocence or guilt, it just clouds perception.
    A woman has the right to enter a man’s room with intentions of being together, and change her mind. The fact that an accuser is attracted to her attacker is not material. The root of rape is consent. It’s probably why only 2% of females report being raped by a stranger. Again, no sides, just hope the truth comes out.
    The only thing annoying is the media’s coverage. I mean, it doesn’t feel like the Kobe case, or countless cases of rape by college or professional athletes. The coverage is different. Ben is less abrasive than Kobe, so maybe that’s it, but if feels distinctly different. Maybe because it’s civil rather than criminal. And before people throw stones and say she should have gone criminal charges if she was really raped, perhaps she chose civil because she was advised by her legal council that the burdens of proof are different, and possibly lower for a civil case.
    Then again, maybe she is a gold digger. Who knows.

    LOL. I’m jealous of the hotel girl. PLEASSEE! It is well known in Pittsburgh that he is tiny. The only thing big hands and big feet mean are big gloves and big shoes.
    All you men should be ashamed of yourself. The man is right and the woman is always wrong. What would your wife, sister, and mother say about your morals? He hasn’t proven his innocence and she had the GUTS to come forward knowing all of this. Her attys I’m sure have told her about how she will be cheated.
    You are all pathetic and when she proves her case… WTF are you going to do then? I’ll just be laughing at all of you!

    Wouldn’t suprise me if the Drama Queen, aka Fatburger, was in cahoots with the women to show that he can actually lure a women into his hotel room who’s not a steeler fan. Those not blinded by the gold and black see the guy as a fatheaded geek who may be the luckiest QB to play in the nfl. between the tackle to save the game against the colts in 06 and the ducks he throws that end up as touchdown he had to do something to gain some street cred.
    Here’s hoping is ankle or whatever injury he’s faking this week heals in time for Ray Ray and the Ravens to make him pay for raping or whatever he did with his hideous accuser.
    ======================================
    Ok he is moron of the week . You are an idiot , dumb and complete trash . You are sitting in your moms basement wearing your gay purple camoflauge pants and half cut off ray ray jersey . You are watching silence of the lambs and living out your Jamie Gum fantasy . I would F me i would f me good lol .
    Reba , sweety please go get yourself fixed so you cant bring any children into the world ok ? You have some serious problems , your a dumbass and have no clue for what you say . You dont know football …
    To all the Steeler haters please keep up the good work ok ? Everytime you bash the Steelers and talk trash it just motivates the SteelerNation . Until you can compare to us you all suck . Bmore fans stop being mad cause you rolled over and take it from behind 3 times from the Steelers last year . Guess what ? We are going to be even better this year . Get use to it .

    first time poster, long time reader.
    i saw some lady put “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned’ in relation to this big ben fiasco. she was trying to justify andrea mcpony’s reasons for extorting big ben. she said mcpony was hoping for a serious relationship and ben “didnt call her” and she thought it could lead to something and blah blah blah.
    my response is, are u serious?
    where is bens obligation to call her? he wanted a one night stand with an easy chick, and he got it. it coulda been any woman but she happened to be quite eager for some ben lovin. bens worth millions upon millions of dollars, is famous, young, and can get plenty of women should he so choose. if mcpony actually thought that a one night stand at a casino with a young millionaire could lead to a relationship, then thats her own damn fault, and she deserves all the mud that comes slingin her way.
    basically, dont try making this crazy bitch look sane by acting like she had “her reasons”. if u think a one night stand is cause to publicly drag some1s name thru the mud and to try and extort a large sum of money from some1, then u are effed in the head, lady.

    Dear Reba…
    In the future, please try to wake up the drug-impaired one-legged hamster that operates that wheel-powered brain of yours before you start pounding on your keyboard with open palms like a banana-deprived sh!t-faced chimpanzee on crack. I can only hope and suggest that the next time that you feel an urge to embarrass yourself and bore others with your unbelievably mind-numbing ignorance, that you summon all your might, and resist. Better still, do yourself and everyone else a favor; sit down, relax, have a nice warm cup of ShutTheF*ckUp, then disconnect your computer from the Internet.
    You are EXACTLY like McNulty, bat-sh!t crazy.

  74. missy says: Aug 27, 2009 7:00 PM

    same as you jp first time poster but read the articles im gonna throw this one out there has Ben ever admitted to even banging this nut job? not that i have read and i have read everthing on this….he ALLEGEDLY banged her . look at everything that has been put out there , fact she is a nut job , has the thought ever crossed anyones mind that he might not have even did her. case scenerio and this is just a theory, he might have been nice to her friendly and she might have hit on him as said in the emails and he might haveturned her down. i mean she stated in her email she thought he was “effin hot “and was “falling in lust” i mean there might even be the possibility and mind you this is a theory she might have even made the whole sex story up….she is not stable just something to think about.

  78. Florios_a_tool says: Aug 27, 2009 9:43 PM

    Dear Reba , again.
    Regarding your self-professed expertise on football, there’s a couple of old sayings that were penned by someone who apparently knew your sibling parents; #1) You wouldn’t know a clue if it walked up to you, bit you on the ass, and announced ‘I am a clue!’. #2) You couldn’t even buy a clue if you bribed an army of clue guides during clue mating season in a field of clues if you smeared your body in musk and did the clue mating dance. At this point, I would prefer to shove a potted cactus up each nostril than endure even one more stammer of the quaaludes-and-cheap-beer-induced noise generated by your constant and usually unintelligible baboon-like racket.
    “Nolls” huh?

    Wow. I love the attention. Let me ask you this…just because my signon name is Reba, what makes you think i’m female?
    You don’t. Dumbasses.
    I bet you IM people and think they are females while your wife is out with the kids or watching tv.

  86. Greg1960 says: Aug 27, 2009 11:19 PM

    Wow cgc1969, I agree with you. Hwever, my wife tells me that men are good for 2 things. They are procreation and lifting heavy things.
    Reba, a male? Well, anything is possible on this board. Ya never know who you are talking to on boards.

  87. rookie1126 says: Aug 28, 2009 8:27 AM

    Reba,
    Even if you are not a female you are still an idiot. Big Ben has one of the top legal minds in the country, and Andrea McNulty basically hired an ambulance chaser thinking he could get a big pay day. Any normal lawyer would have looked at all the facts saw she had no case and would have told her to go pound sand. Since you are completely ignorant about any facets of the law I am not going to go into detail. (YES I AM A LAWYER), but do yourself a favor and check yourself into the hospital for yours and everybody else’s sake

  88. Florios_a_tool says: Aug 28, 2009 8:44 AM

    Nolls? Who’s he?
    Oh yeah, wasn’t he the coach before Cowhers and Tomlins?
    “…what makes you think i’m female?…”
    uhm, because you’ve said so in the past? duh.

  89. Tim Biakabutuka says: Aug 28, 2009 11:29 AM

    o man these message boards r fun…ppl take things so personally…especially steelers fans
    mborz is all like “dont call him a rapist cuz ull offend actual victims of rape”
    …i never went on record as saying hes a rapist first of all…i just put it in his name cuz it has a nice ring to it
    clearly mborz was raped as a child…no offense but i’ve known a couple of people hu were victims of rape and no its not a joke…but im not making fun of ppl hu get raped, im making fun of the ppl doing the raping…and its obvious ben is innocent i said it from day one…but i love to piss off steelers fans, y do yall make it so fun?!?!
    if u think im trying to make rape out to be like a joke or not a big deal watever u dont kno me…i just like to say ridiculous things to piss ppl off…AGAIN, i made fun of an accused RAPIST not an accused VICTIM of rape…i kno ben didnt do it but rapists should be made fun of…and ben should regardless cuz at the very least he pwned an UGLY CHICK wen he could have like any girl he wanted

    Jamaltimore – if I were a Ravens fan, I would run & hide from any blog concerning the Steelers. You were spanked 3 TIMES last yr by Pittsburgh & you also have the nerve to bring up that over-the-hill felonious Ray Lewis too. Your D is going to be pedestrian this yr, you are going to miss Bart Scott & Leonhard BIGTIME, & Flacco is going to turn into Flaccid w/ your laughable receiving corps led by fossil Derrick Mason.

    Frank Burns says: Well well, looks like the “Ben Rapistberger” nickname crew is looking pretty dumb right now. Ditto that “and the Big Ben SEXGATE rolls on!” clown, who is now hiding under the bed like a scared schoolgirl. C’mon out and play, where are ya?
    ———————————————————
    Hey, I will give credit where it is due.
    It seems Ben didn’t rape her.
    He only used his celebrity and a lame “broken tv” excuse to entice her to his room after his pimp-like “friends” at the hotel prodded her to “be accommodating”. Then when she got there he got some (whether she wanted to give some or not is still debatable) and kicked her to the curb.
    You were correct. He is a class act all the way. Fathers across the country must be lining up their daughters for a date with him as I write this. The egg is on my face.
    Unfortunately it is time to retire the ever entertaining “Big Ben Rapistberger” for the new and only half as amusing “Big Ben Fuglybanger”, and even though this whole incident is slowly coming to an end, us non-Steeler fans will always be able to look back and enjoy the memories of the countless bunched panties that occurred as a result.
    Untill the next time a Steeler makes an ass out of himself, adieu. (I give it a week, tops)

    Um..well….she supposedly mentioned a “broken TV” to Hyder 24 hours BEFORE Ben supposedly told her according to her own complaint.
    But please don’t let facts get in the way.

    I find it amazing that no one has commented on the fact that this woman never filed a criminal complaint against Ben for this alleged attack. The only time someone files a civil complaint instead of a criminal complaint against someone for something of this nature is when a big pay day might be in there future. It is clear that she obviously doesn’t want him in jail or she wouldn’t get her big pay day. It sounds like her attorney needs to be reported to the bar association. He is obviously out to get his name in the papers especially with his outrageous requests for discovery. I say shame on this woman for making it that much harder to have real rapes prosecuted in criminal court. She is all about the pay day
