Debate continues regarding link between Roethlisberger behavior and head injuries

Last month, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review floated the possibility that Ben Roethlisberger’s history of head injuries could be influencing his recent behavior.  David Epstein of SI.com hones in on the possible connection between one specific trauma — the 2006 motorcycle accident — and Roethlisberger’s conduct.

A neuropsychologist at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Strokes told Epstein that a link exists between injuries to the frontal lobe and inappropriate behaviors.  “A person with damage might not read the intentions of a woman
at a bar very well, for example,” Dr. Jordan Grafman says. “They might succumb to
more primitive urges instead of saying, ‘I shouldn’t do this because it
affects my career.’”

Epstein provides a couple of specific examples suggesting that Roethlisberger’s ability to control his impulses could be impaired.  Per Epstein, Roethlisberger once hit on a married woman in the presence of her husband, asking her out on a date.  Roethlisberger also reportedly said aloud to a friend, “I didn’t know you liked fat chicks” — in the presence of the woman.

At this point, it’s unknown whether a link exists in Roethlisberger’s case.  Though he has likely suffered multiple concussions while playing football, driving into the side of a Chrysler without a helmet surely presented an injury far worse than anything he has endured on a football field.  The challenge in this regard would be to determine whether there’s evidence that Roethlisberger changed after the motorcycle accident.  If he had a habit of saying inappropriate things before the accident, the explanation could be concussions suffered before 2006 while playing football.

Or it could be that he’s simply a jerk, and that the addition of money and fame made him even worse.

The ultimate proof could come from whether he is capable of changing.  If his conduct flows from damage to the frontal lobe of his brain, he won’t be able to control himself.  So, basically, his ability to improve his behavior would be proof that there’s really no excuse for the things he said and did in the past, allegedly or otherwise.

    Give me a f’n break… I do this crap every Friday night after a 6 pack. No one cuts me extra slack in court for my ensuing DUI.

  2. DC_Bengals_Fan says: May 6, 2010 12:51 AM

    Problem – word is he did some of the same things in college, before the accident.
    Sometimes a guy is just an asshole. Don’t need to look hard for an explanation.

    He should sue his doctors, the driver of the car, and Harley Davidson.
    It could never just be that he’s drunk & chasing women like an ass.

    So now all a rapist has to say is “I played sports as a kid and suffered head injuries, it’s not my fault I raped that woman.”

  7. nerd says: May 6, 2010 12:56 AM

    He’s just a jerk.

    gtfoh with this excuse. no is no is no.

  9. DeVoodoo says: May 6, 2010 1:03 AM

    What a load of crap.
    The kind of behavioral issues we’re talking about with regards to frontal lobe damage wouldn’t just magically appear at bars in college towns. Symptoms would also appear while he’s being interviewed on camera, speaking in public, and so forth. So until we see Joe Namath-like behavior to an on-air female personality, I think it’s safe to assume Ben is in control of his conduct, and he chooses to be an asshole.

  10. marinofreakout says: May 6, 2010 1:04 AM

  11. ILIKEPIE says: May 6, 2010 1:05 AM

    Ri-goddamn-diculous! “They might succumb to more primitive urges instead of saying, ‘I shouldn’t do this because it affects my career.’ “How about the way he acts is just plain wrong no matter what career he has. They guy does all his thinking with the little head in his pants and I don’t believe for a second concussions are a factor at all. Alcohol, millions in the bank and an over sized ego are all that’s needed to turn a regular A hole into a super sized one.

  12. Chapnasty2 says: May 6, 2010 1:07 AM

    “Or it could be that he’s simply a jerk, and that the addition of money and fame made him even worse.”
    How about this is the truth since it has been reported that he was a giant doucher in college as well. Money just amplified the problems.

  13. Rasta says: May 6, 2010 1:12 AM

    Everyone down at the trailer park knows what Roethlisbergers diagnosis is and the prognosis is very poor.
    Rothlisberger is “WHITE TRASH WITH MONEY.” Only treatment take away the money.

  14. monet99 says: May 6, 2010 1:15 AM

    I think people were saying Ben was a jerk before accident.

  15. Poo Flinging Monkey says: May 6, 2010 1:16 AM

    Nice cop out.
    “I hit my head, so I can’t stop raping women!!!!”

  16. JSpicoli says: May 6, 2010 1:19 AM

    Maybe he needs to be hit on the head again.

  17. swashy says: May 6, 2010 1:22 AM

    I think Occam’s Razor applies to this case. Which theory is simpler: Big Ben has brain trauma leading him to disrespect women, or Big Ben is lacking in the character department, and disrespects women all on his own? Is it too much to ask for people to be responsible and accountable for their actions these days?

  18. FumbleNuts says: May 6, 2010 1:23 AM

    If his conduct flows from damage to the frontal lobe of his brain he should be considered mentally ill.
    Maybe he should be throwing bed pans in a psychiatric ward?

  19. GoBears84 says: May 6, 2010 1:26 AM

  20. MasterShake says: May 6, 2010 1:30 AM

    Well played Mr. I Used To Be A Lawyer.
    Florio should take a bow, as long as his “extensions” don’t fall off.

  21. Stone says: May 6, 2010 1:32 AM

    You gotta be kidding me with this sh!t. Everybody has a god damn excuse when they are a public figure. This will be a fantastic precedent to set. Leroy Hill dragged his woman down the stairs by her hair because of concussions. Michael Irvin stabbed a teammate in the neck with a pair of scissors because of concussions. Rae Carruth tried to get his woman murdered because he had concussions. GIVE ME A BREAK!
    Rapistberger is just a more talented version of Ryan Leaf: too immature for the money and fame. He let it get to his head and his ego took over.

  22. Bernie19Kosar says: May 6, 2010 1:34 AM

    If this was true, Troy Aikman and Trent Green would be raping every woman alive.
    BB is just a sexual deviant.

  25. JoeJoeBrown says: May 6, 2010 1:38 AM

    He was a dick growing up in Findlay, Ohio. He was a dick at Miami. He’s a dick in Pittsburgh. The guy is a dick. He just happens to be rich so he feels that he can exude his dickness on everyone around him.

  26. Nola5712 says: May 6, 2010 1:50 AM

    BULLSHIT. talk about getting a doctor to say EXACTLY what you need him/her to. rapistberger REMAINS rapistberger and no head injuries will garner sympathy from me.

  27. Rat says: May 6, 2010 1:59 AM

    It should be pretty easy to find out if he was an asshole before his head injuries.

  28. DT79 says: May 6, 2010 2:13 AM

    More excuses for bad behavior. Yeah, I’m sure his head injury made him act like an ass at a bar… give me a break.

  29. DanRooney says: May 6, 2010 2:21 AM

    I’m wondering if there’s a link between Florio’s infatuation with Roethlisberger and homosexuality

  30. mzezulak says: May 6, 2010 2:23 AM

    Bunch of BS

  31. Onderin says: May 6, 2010 2:31 AM

    Speculation. Until things are actually proven, this sounds like an excuse.

  32. ECS - Brougham Boys 74 says: May 6, 2010 2:36 AM

    What about the link between Roethlisberger behavior and vaginal injuries?
    Do you think it’s possible that this girl might have suffered some kind of long-term damage that will make it so she can’t control herself, too? How long until she starts raping people?

  33. ZwangZ says: May 6, 2010 2:50 AM

    ” Dr. Jordan Grafman says. “They might succumb to more primitive urges instead of saying, ‘I shouldn’t do this because it affects my career.’”
    Say what?
    How about I shouldn’t do this because it’s not right?
    Is this doctor any idiot?

  35. drk666 says: May 6, 2010 2:51 AM

    give me a break!
    this just screams of someone who loves him some ‘big ben’ making excuses!
    if he can function on a football field, of which i’m still skeptical (one of the worst performances by a sb winning qb ever), he can function outside the lines. if he can’t tell the difference between right and wrong, he shouldn’t be allowed to roam society.
    once a pos, always a pos!

  36. Lex Luger says: May 6, 2010 2:51 AM

    I for one, would like to hear Chris Nowinski’s opinion on this matter.

  37. RebaT. says: May 6, 2010 2:57 AM

    GOOD! He should get another 10 concussions and we will be rid of him. A-hole! If the doc says he’s done…. I will LMFAO. Bu-bye psycho.

  38. To Rush Quickly says: May 6, 2010 2:58 AM

    His frontal lobe isn’t the problem.
    The problem is that he’s a giant douchebag

  39. RebaT. says: May 6, 2010 2:58 AM

    What an EXCUSE!!!! Bull-crap. Just another excuse to get him off the hook. But, this one, if true, his career is O V E R!! Thank GOD!

  40. hendeeze says: May 6, 2010 3:00 AM

  42. bofarr says: May 6, 2010 3:01 AM

    Now he can just act like he has dain bramage and continue to grab as much booty as possible. Mike Vick should have thought of this defense.

  43. shuffle4steak says: May 6, 2010 3:45 AM

    It would be awesome if i could rape a chic and claim a concussion or 2….if thats the case I’m going after Ben!

  44. OscarMooseFarmer says: May 6, 2010 4:00 AM

    Doesn’t really matter, does it? An explanation for being a jerk is not an excuse for being a jerk.
    With another blow to the head maybe he’ll end up like Gary Busey…no impulse control whatsoever. Ofcourse the drugs might have had something to do with it too.

  45. Boogie says: May 6, 2010 4:10 AM

    “The ultimate proof could come from whether he is capable of changing. If his conduct flows from damage to the frontal lobe of his brain, he won’t be able to control himself. So, basically, his ability to improve his behavior would be proof that there’s really no excuse for the things he said and did in the past, allegedly or otherwise.”
    Or he will have read that and drawn the logical conclusion: I will continue to act like a huge jerk, and get of the hook.

  46. CREEP says: May 6, 2010 4:13 AM

    OK that explains it!
    Ben hits head and now is a sex hungry RETARD, backwoods Deliverance, poon tang seeking creep….
    Almost as good as lethargy addiction.

  47. Child_Please! says: May 6, 2010 4:30 AM

    He is simply a rapist and a douchebag.
    It’s not rocket science.
    Put it this way……. If head injuries are affecting his judgement out on the loose in society, then he should be locked up for everyones protection.
    at the very least, he should not be allowed to play football.

  48. Titans*Smoke*Pole says: May 6, 2010 4:34 AM

    “I didn’t know you liked fat chicks”
    So he’s an asswipe. ‘Nuff said.

    i have had multiple concussions from playing rugby and i have never been compelled to rape anyone. cant we all admit big ben raped someone cause hes a piece of crap

  50. dietrich43 says: May 6, 2010 5:28 AM

    Why didn’t SI send a team of reporters to Miami of Ohio? If he was a tool there, he’s just a douchebag.

  51. RebaT. says: May 6, 2010 5:28 AM

    Bang your head again Ben. Maybe that will be all it takes to say Bu-Bye.

  52. PatricktheDookie says: May 6, 2010 5:39 AM

    When the notion that hitting your head made you stupid is positive spin, you’ve got some serious issues.

  53. Aequitas says: May 6, 2010 5:46 AM

    I have a couple close friends who knew him during their (and his) undergrad years. The explanation is he’s a total ass – was then an still is.

  54. contract says: May 6, 2010 5:58 AM

    A small group of you certainly are committed to this smear campaign aren’t you? First you label him a sexual predator in the complete absence of evidence … and now he’s “brain damaged”.
    God bless the yellow press.

  55. mike_311 says: May 6, 2010 6:16 AM

    are we going to blame mike vicks behavior of head injuries too?

  56. VASeahawk says: May 6, 2010 6:19 AM

    Being a Douche-bag has nothing to do with head injuries. Just another apologist for bad behavior.

  57. schutt says: May 6, 2010 6:20 AM

    Alcohol and Hormones plus being a total jerk is the biggest problem.

  58. igor79 says: May 6, 2010 6:20 AM

    Give me a break. That guy has probably been pushing around girls his whole life. Trying to blame his scumbagness on head injuries is criminal.
    The type of guy who thinks hes invincible and doesnt have to wear a helmet when driving a freaking motor cycle is the type of guy who thinks that women should do whatever he wants them to. The guy is a complete douchebag and it has nothing to do with brain injuries.

  59. Bwa Ha Ha says: May 6, 2010 6:21 AM

    Ask his friends from high school.
    I knew a guy in HS that marginally made the NFl. Though praised when drafted, he was a flaming azzhole when I knew him.
    He’s dead now.

  60. lamename says: May 6, 2010 6:21 AM

    It’s plausible. Look at Gary Busey. He’s batsh** crazy in part due to a motorcycle accident.

  61. BaltimoreSports says: May 6, 2010 6:22 AM

    “Or it could be that he’s simply a jerk”

  62. markwhct says: May 6, 2010 6:27 AM

    Sounds like an excuse that the Steelers, the NFL and Rapistberger are making together to explain that he isn’t just a Sexual Predator!!!

  63. ham1 says: May 6, 2010 6:39 AM

    Great, he hit his head so he raped her…isnt that just the way things are today..hey maybe it was George Bushs fault…

  64. 18-1 says: May 6, 2010 6:42 AM

    Great. Now anybody who ever go hit in the head has an excuse to rape.

  65. Scurrilous says: May 6, 2010 6:43 AM

    Eh, seems like a lot of b.s. to me. No excuses Ben, you acted like a doosher and now you have to pay the piper. Get your self straight and get ready for the season.
    Go Steelers!!!

  66. George C says: May 6, 2010 6:44 AM

    Here come the excuses……..

  67. TFBuckFutter says: May 6, 2010 6:44 AM

    I guarantee you this turd has been using the same date rape techniques since high school when he first found out getting a chick black out drunk made them stop actively resisting his advances.

  68. smashmouthd says: May 6, 2010 6:46 AM

    So we are now 100% certian he’s F’d up…
    He’s either a PoS human being.
    OR
    He’s suffered SERIOUS injury to his brain and should STOP all further risks to damaging it further.
    Either way… he shouldn’t be playing football anymore.

  69. dafreak says: May 6, 2010 6:47 AM

    Funny… maybe you all (media as a whole) should go and interview the people he went to school with. I know a couple and they said that there is no difference now than high school and college.
    Either that throws the theory out the window or he was dropped a lot as a baby.

  70. tv says: May 6, 2010 6:50 AM

    Yeah, it was a head injury that did it!
    Get fn real!

  71. GoBrowns19 says: May 6, 2010 7:08 AM

    Well it’s about time someone came up with an excuse. Nothing is ever anyone’s fault, it must be a disease. I once kicked a girl in the head but got off because when I was three I was left in a hot car for three hours…causing temporary restless leg syndrome…of which I take government pills that cause diarrhea, heartburn, eye puss, headaches, and possibly death. But my restless leg syndrome, thankfully, is cured.

  72. notdarkyet says: May 6, 2010 7:09 AM

    Again, he was a d-bag in High School. Must’ve had concussions in Junior High then, right?

  73. Dapollock says: May 6, 2010 7:14 AM

    Based on this premise, why don’t we hit him in the head again and see if he morphs into Sir John Gielgood?

  74. Ammo says: May 6, 2010 7:15 AM

    As someone who has talked to people who knew him at Miami, he’s just a giant douche.

  75. kaakwha says: May 6, 2010 7:22 AM

    So our choices are:
    ……..He’s a jerk.
    ……..He’s a redneck.
    ……..He’s damaged, concussed goods.
    ……..He’s a douchebag.
    ……..He’s a serial sexual predator.
    ……..He’s stupid.
    ……..He’s a squeeler qb.
    Let’s say all of the above and shame, shame on him.
    But more importantly, let’s feel bad and send condoloences to his victims.
    To him? bah. rot in hell loser.

  77. thunderpants14 says: May 6, 2010 7:26 AM

    He needs to be in a mental institution or prison. Serious rehabilitation needs to be made. If the NFL cared about helping these players it would be via indefinite suspension and any salary etc diverted to the institution that’s aiding in the players recovery.
    What person after a 6 week suspension can honestly say they’d feel any safer with him alone in a room?
    Slightly off topic…another player out there that is bat sh!t crazy is Ocho Cinco. Just looking into his eyes you can see there’s something missing. The NFL might be wise to investigate and nip that one in the bud.

  78. BernardPollardIsAnAss says: May 6, 2010 7:29 AM

    I think we can solve the chicken and the the egg debate here. Wasn’t this idiot riding through the streets of Pittsburgh on a motorcycle without a helmet before he had the head injury that may supposedly be causing all this? Yes, he was. Sounds like he was acting plenty stupid to me before the accident. Don’t think anything has changed since.

  79. Ollie says: May 6, 2010 7:32 AM

    Man, the Bengals must lead the league in concussions! How many did Packman and Ray Lewis have?
    I think we need to check all of the people in prison to see if head injurys caused them to not know the difference between right and wrong.

  80. Draft King says: May 6, 2010 7:39 AM

    This makes me think of the Leonard Shelby character in the great film Memento: “I was the only guy who disagreed with the cops – and I had brain damage.”

  81. Huckle says: May 6, 2010 7:40 AM

    All you retards thinking that this will be an excuse used to “get off the hook” have also sustained head injuries.
    Using this as an excuse would only serve to shoot himself in the foot, as Goodell would have to suspend him indefinitely for his own safety and the safety of others – ending his NFL career.

  82. HoosierFin says: May 6, 2010 7:41 AM

    Let me start by saying that I loathe the Steelers, and if it was not for the Patriots and Jets, they would rank as the top ass bag team of the NFL.
    Big Ben The QB … great – Big Ben The Person … not so much.
    However, my wife is a Speech Pathologist (I thought using the word Therapist would be in poor taste) working with people who have suffered strokes and head injuries. She has mentioned that some will act out or say things that they would have never done prior to the stroke or brain injury. And some who were already a-holes (probably alcoholics) will become an even larger a-hole after the injury. Even sweet little old grannies will drop f-bombs as if they were auditioning for the role of Tony Montana in Scarface.
    I am in no way defending Big Ben because I feel he was douche bag prior to his injuries. Yet, I feel that his injuries plus the alcohol and his douche bag ways have amped up his aggressive and foolish actions. Someone needs to put him a short leash and surround with the people that will act as his moral conscience. And can someone find him a hot piece of arse call girl like the Spitzer chick … he is a millionaire for corn sake.

  83. Leroy'sButler says: May 6, 2010 7:48 AM

    I wonder how many concussions O.J. has had.

  84. Girard says: May 6, 2010 7:50 AM

    It was the big head that got the concussions.
    That’s not one he uses for thinking…

  85. KingJoe! says: May 6, 2010 7:52 AM

    This makes Ben look even creepier. People trying to justify their behavior based on their past or their environment demostrates a complete lack of acceptance of blame. The Steelers would be better off dumping him right now; I suspect he will repeat his past behaviors.

  86. jm82985 says: May 6, 2010 7:52 AM

    What a cop out… I know people who went to college with Ben at Miami (OH) and said he was a giant douche then. Quit trying to cover up the fact that this guy is just an ass hole with excuses about head injuries. I’m sure him and his enablers will ride that train as long as they can… Maybe someone will believe him.

  87. TheRedBengal says: May 6, 2010 8:08 AM

    “Why would a man who is famous and makes tons of money, use that to try and have sex with a lots of different women?”- south park
    Does Epstein know that south park just made fun of these kind of dumb ass explanations? That dude needs to be fired asap

  88. promichael says: May 6, 2010 8:10 AM

    Let’s assimilate the doctors theory to football. Ben’s thinking process and ability to process information on the football field is the other area that should be affected. He should not be able to reason and make quick decisions that a quarterback has to make. The frontal lobe injury will also affect his quarterbacking.
    In other words if big Ben can’t read the intentions of woman he should also not be able to read the intentions of a defense in the NFL.
    Ben needs to take responsibility for being an all american “dick head”.

  89. The Real Shuxion says: May 6, 2010 8:22 AM

    uh – yes – I think he is. Roethlisberger for all his success has absolutely the worst loser’s limp in football. He throws an interception and grabs his thumb, he fumbles and immediately points to somebody else to shift the blame. His M.O. for years has been if he has a shitty game invariably an article comes out by Tuesday of a health problem he has that nobody else knew about but he couragiously played through. So don’t be acting like it’s such a stretch that his people wouldn’t have got this article started.

Shouldn’t he not be able to hold back his opinions about players and women without a filter like Ben? Why is it that there are plenty of other players or non-players that have had concussions not done this crap? I’d be willing to bet that if took that time to really investigate, they’d find that he was an asshole long before he took his first hit.

    You have to wonder about the ethics of medical “experts” who speculatively diagnose the problems of patients they’ve never examined.
    Two friends of mine appear fine but both have suffered severe head traumas which would make it impossible for them to process the information needed to QB a professional football team. Frontal-lobe damage isn’t gender-specific. If it impaired his ability to process signals from women, it would impair his ability to process signals from men. And it would likely impair his ability to process the information that comes at him with lightning speed during plays. Yet his on-field performance has improved since the accident. And those with him on a regular basis–family, players, coaches–would have noticed the sudden differences in his behavior.
    It’s more likely that this is a spoiled, immature, over-entitled, egomaniacal athlete who behaves like a dog. The one thing people at PFT can’t grasp is that the evidence says he’s been running with his own kind. Just because he’s a dog doesn’t mean the Nevada and Georgia women were the Olsen twins. He’s been living in a dog-meet-dog world. It’s a sorry situation all the way ’round.

    Being raped didn’t make me hate all men. I’m capable of distinguishing the many decent, gentle, moral men in the world from the person who abused me then … and from the abusive “men” I’ve encountered on PFT.
    It also doesn’t make me champion all women. I’m capable of distinguishing victims from those who’ll do anything for a dollar and those who’d rather blame someone else than take responsibility for their own behavior. False rape claims are a common phenomenon. That’s why it’s important to carefully examine the evidence in each case rather than making blanket assumptions. The reason the Georgia DA said he didn’t even have enough evidence against Roethlisberger to produce probable cause for an arrest, let alone enough to secure a conviction, is because no rape occurred.
    A true rape survivor is the last person on earth who would feel sympathy for a rapist–or for women making false rape allegations.

    I just love all the Squeeler fans on here trying to rationalize Ben’s serial raping. LMAO. Not surprising… Squeeler fans rationalize everything from their 70s fraud steroid-tainted “dynasty” to why the Squeelers team doctor had 150K in HgH a few years back ( aiding in yet another fraud championship). The Squeelers are a classless organization who employ serial rapists, wife-beaters, and the like. Absolutely pathetic.
    Your jealousy is embarrassing.
    C’mon man, give it up.

    Hey Deb…the DA in GA did not say that no rape occurred.
    How do you know that a rape did not occur? Were you there…..
    Didnt I see you ask this same question to many others on here???

    I’ve won 8 bowling trophies, numerous raquetball championships and even a paintball tourney or two.
    I think I should be able to rape people too. As long as there’s a Steeler fan on the jury, I’d probably be acquitted of any charges.
    All these haters just wish they were champs like me.

  174. Deb says: May 6, 2010 6:22 PM

    @Ravenmaniac …
    It’s gotten really old being asked over and over to repeat the same things as though this is some deeply complex mystery of the universe.
    Ben is a moronic jackass. He deserved his punishment. Let’s hope he changes his life.
    McNulty is the lowest form of gold-digger–the kind who deliberately makes a false rape allegation. More than ample evidence says she’s lying.
    Georgia wasn’t raped. That’s what the medical exam showed. Period. She’s not some poor lil gal led astray by the big, bad QB. She’s a female Ben: a hard-partier who was DTF–and I doubt that was the first time. Most virginal types don’t have DTF pins lying around or chase men from bar to bar getting blotto.
    You dads need to stop ruminating on Ben and start reading up on the reality of today’s college women. If I had a daughter heading to college–forget that, if I had a 15-year-old, I’d be fitting her with an ankle monitor and a chastity belt.
    No, you have not seen me ask others “were you there?” I’m able to make my points from the evidence.
    No, I didn’t say the Georgia DA said no rape occurred. I said “the Georgia DA said he didn’t even have enough evidence against Roethlisberger to produce probable cause for an arrest …” and that’s because no rape occurred.
    The DA said this was a mess created by too much alcohol and he said there was plenty of blame to go around to everyone–Ben, the accuser, and the sorority sisters. It doesn’t take a genius to know those are not the words of a prosecutor who believes a rape suspect is getting away for lack of evidence. Those are the words of a guy who thinks a bunch of jackasses acted like jackasses.

    My stomach literally turned when I read this. You’ve turned rape in to a running joke and somehow you think you’re some kind of stud? Good grief. Since I was a teenager, I’ve used my football knowledge as an easy way to separate the men from the boys. Men think it’s cool that a woman knows football; boys find it threatening. Now I know if a woman wants to discover a man’s true character, she just needs to read what he posts on sports blogs.

    Florio,
    This is the most ridiculous thing you have posted and that’s saying alot. If Roethlisberger were not a member of your favorite team would you write such a ridiculous article? The police should monitor Troy Aikman who has suffered numerous concussions. You have taken being a homer to a whole new level.

    @Deb:
    If I wanted your opinion, I’d ask Rapistberger to fart. Now run along. I’m sure there are some rape victims at your local hospital. Why don’t you go denigrate some of them, call them sluts and let em know that as a rape victim, you can’t stand people who claim to be rape victims.
    Speaking of which, shouldn’t you be on one of the LT threads defending LT? Or is it just Rapistberger’s victims that are liars?

    Wow. my post really hit close to home, didn’t it? You’ve turned rape into a punchline and behaved like a vulgar misogynistic ape on this site simply because you’re not man enough to live with a Super Bowl loss that happened five years ago. God help you if you ever had to face a real hardship. Don’t worry, I didn’t blow your studly cover. Any astute woman in your life already sees through you.

    Actually what cracks me up most about your posts is all your delusional raving about being a female rape victim. As if everyone on this site wasn’t already aware that you’re some 15 year old fat kid posting from his mom’s basement.
    And btw your posts don’t really do much for me. I ignore 99% of them. Once in a while, I’ll skim one quickly for a laugh. Generally though it’s just bizarre nonsense and somewhat depressing at that. Maybe if you had a sense of humor…? Spice it up a little, Mister Sister!!

  183. Moozie says: May 6, 2010 11:01 PM

    The Squeelers are steroid cheats, who cheated their way to 5 of the 6 rings with steroids and HgH peddling team doctors. They employ serial rapists and woman beaters. The people of Pissburg are some of the frightening in the country. What else is there to even say?

    Rapist=lowest form of life besides child killer. No surprise that the steroid cheat Squeelers pay 100 million to their precious serial rapist. Go to jail, Rapistburger. Rumor has it that Rapistburger has the clap. Not only is he raping people but he’s giving them VD. What a lowlife. He doesn’t deserve to be playing football. Take him out. Take him out.

  187. Moozie says: May 7, 2010 7:17 AM

    Too bad Rapistburger didn’t “expire” during his little motorcycle accident. We would have saved the innocent young girls he’s been out raping. What a POS. Hey Ben, keep going on motorcycle rides without a helmet. Please.

  188. Moozie says: May 7, 2010 12:55 PM

    Pissburg Steroids employ serial rapists and wife beaters. ROFL. What a joke franchise. Read the other Rapistburger thread for my joke about Squeelers linemen.

    They just got back the results of Ben’s extensive behavioral analysis. They basically learned 6 things:
    1. The Steelers won Super Bowl IX
    2. The Steelers won Super Bowl X
    3. The Steelers won Super Bowl XIII
    4. The Steelers won Super Bowl XIV
    5. The Steelers won Super Bowl XL
    6. The Steelers won Super Bowl XLIII

    Women always know a man’s true character. They are ALL the same. That’s why we keep them around as playtoys and we marry the one we can stomach the most.
    We women all know that men are good at two things… pro-creation and lifting heavy things. The rest is well, not much.

    No, I don’t. I just joined PFT a few days ago. What’s really lame is lying about me posting in old Squeeler threads. LOL. I’ve only posted on about 10 threads…and all of them are recent. But keep up with the lies because you can’t deal with reality and the truth..you Squeeler fans are good at that. Very typical pinkhat Squeeler fan can’t be bothered by the truth of your fraud cheating franchise, serial rapist QB, and wife beating players. Only 1 legit ring out of 6. Pretty embarrassing. *******
    LMAO.

  199. Moozie says: May 8, 2010 11:24 AM

    Who’s gonna take Ben’s knee out this season? Why are serial rapists allowed to play in the NFL? Why are steroid cheating fraud franchises like the Squeelers allowed to keep their championships? Squeeler fans are lucky that Commissioner Tagliabue was in office instead of Goodell for their steroid-peddling team doctor. When was he caught ’05? LOL. It’s too bad for the rest of the NFL fans who were short-changed watching the fraud, cheating Squeeler teams. I wonder where the doctor is now? Probably still supplying Pissburg the juice from afar. What a joke. Pissburg Squeelers*

  200. Moozie says: May 8, 2010 11:34 AM

    Ben Rapistburger needs to be kicked out of the NFL. NFL fans need to know the truth about the Steroid Squeelers and their fraud organization. Thankfully, we were able to hear the truth from the media about Ben being a serial rapist. The Squeelers will always be known as a Steroid-using, serial rapist and wife-beating backing organization.
    The bandwagon Squeeler fans who live their lives in delusion about their fraud organization can’t handle the truth. They’re all hyper-emotional pinkhats who couldn’t tell you the first thing about football…except their big fatty women and the mullet brigades waddling around screaming “6 rings” LMAO. What losers. Their 6* rings are frauds…just like the fans.
    Going to a Squeelers game is like a macro version of a trailer park. White trash. Fat, ugly women. Fat, mullet or rat-tailed men with facepaint on. The true dregs of our society. Burn down Pissburg!
