Art Rooney personally responds to fan anger over Roethlisberger

The Steelers have heard the fans when it comes to Ben Roethlisberger.  And in an effort to show how serious they take it, the team has sent letters on Steelers stationery from team president Art Rooney II in response to complaints about Roethlisberger.

The letter can be seen at Deadspin, but we’ll re-write it here.

“Thank you for your letter regarding Ben Roethlisberger.  All of us in the Steelers family are concerned about the recent behavior of Ben in Georgia.  I am certainly as concerned as you about our players’ behavior.  I believe we have made it clear to Ben and all of our players, that there will be consequences for behavior that does not meet our standards,” the letter starts.

Here’s the kicker:

“The vast majority of our players are good people people who work hard to be the best that they can be.”

As opposed to, say, the team’s franchise quarterback. 

We’d say it’s remarkable to hear such strong words by the Rooneys about Roethlisberger, but it’s hardly the first time.

    The second Ben Rapistberger comes back and throws a td those yellow rag waving idiots will be cheering for him just as much as they did in the past.

    Interesting. How come that message wasn’t conveyed after the FIRST time Ben acted up?
    You’re a fraud, Mr Rooney…

  6. craigja says: May 9, 2010 12:55 PM

    Blah, blah, blah… Get rid of him and have the other 31 teams pass on giving him a job. That’s what needs to happen. Have Rapelisberger work 3rd shift in a steel mill and see how cocky this punk will be then.
    The funny part is with the offensive line issues the steelers have and the defense getting older we’ll see how big Ben handles getting his a** kicked on Sunday’s when he does return. Love to see the glorious black and old at 0 – 4 when he comes back and then he plays like crap! Can’t wait..

    “As opposed to, say, the team’s franchise quarterback.”
    Is that your big zinger, Mike? Really? Does it escape you that the owner of the team clearly acknowledges he has a problem with their quarterback? He put it in writing, for cripessake, to a random fan! He called Ben out by name!
    What exactly are you saying with that comment?

  9. Mr.MondayNight says: May 9, 2010 12:57 PM

    @ oyoy84
    Your right man, i havnt been behind Berger but im a die hard steeler fan. to me hes a dumb idio8t, but i didnt go as far to say he should be traded. these dumb fans better give their head’s a shake cause when they start winning with him back they will all shut their mouthes

  10. Wop Genius says: May 9, 2010 12:57 PM

    Ahh more steelers jealousy.. dont be mad we got six, the best fans in the league and will probably be contenders again this year even with this situation. stop the hating

    As usual, you reading way to much into it, Florio.
    Ben has done alot of good things in communities all over the country with his foundation, with The Ronald McDonald house and with the Make a Wish Foundation. Right now, it’s easy to be disappointed in his behavior and forget his good works, but I believe that the Rooneys believe that he WILL live up to their standards again, else they would have cut ties with him. If they can give him the chance, then the fans should, too.
    Watching Rogert Goodell hand the Superbowl MVP trophy to Ben is going to be……….just precious.

    Nice of Rooney to sober up for a few minutes, pry his head from Obama’s butt and write a quick paragraph that basically says “stop complaining about the douchebags we have on our team, I’m taking care of it”.
    How contrite.

  15. NYMets says: May 9, 2010 1:07 PM

    What do you expect. Rapistberger is from Ohio. And in Ohio men do that sort of thing. But usually its with a goat, a sheep, or a relative. Just like his Ohio buddy Art Schilcther. Another loser.

  16. Catamount says: May 9, 2010 1:08 PM

    A few TDs and a few Ws will make rape a little more tolerable? Give the people of Pittsburgh a little credit. They are decent people. If Ben played in Philly, on the other hand…

  32. DanRooney says: May 9, 2010 2:06 PM

    “but still SHE SAID NO! SHE SAID NO!”
    Yep she already admitted that “no” she was not raped. That’s why Ben is a free man.
    Which brings me back to Sean Payton. When is he getting suspended for the major drug abuse? I see 4-6 games looming.

    I honestly feel sorry for you. First, you have to defend (rather than celebrate) your two rigged Super Bowl “wins” (as opposed to the steroid-tainted ones of the ’70s), and now you’re forced to abide a quarterback who is a scourge on the entire league.

  43. TheBengal13 says: May 9, 2010 3:11 PM

    BenRoethlisberger–
    You’re a mongoloid and just a plain idiot if you don’t think that Ben didn’t rape at least one of those women. That’s not an opinion of a Steelers-hater, it’s fact. The Bengals just signed Pacman Jones. He never was arrested, but nobody doubts that he did some bad things. It’s the same or Ben. Where’s smoke there’s fire.
    Furthermore, your retarded point of bringing LT’s situation and relating to Ben’s is illogical, at best. Businessmen and owners in Pittsburgh hate Ben because he treats people terribly and burns bridges. He’s not a good person and has a hideous face. Deal with it.

  44. stanjam says: May 9, 2010 3:18 PM

    Well, they can not say the truth:
    “We are also upset about Ben’s behavior, but let’s face it; we have invested a lot of money here, and we so not have anyone that has the potential to win as many games as he does for us. So basically, he will still be on our team because, while ethics are nice, we would rather win at any cost.”

  45. Schau3r says: May 9, 2010 3:24 PM

    I have to give credit to the Steelers for acting like a class organization. Do you think it would be like this if it were the Bengals? That said, they are also the ones who drafted these idiots.

  46. RebaT. says: May 9, 2010 3:41 PM

    If the Steelers REALLY got the message, they would get rid of him. The road games are going to be tough and hilarious because they are going to eat Ben alive. I’m not too sure the fans in Pit won’t either. He’s ugly and now a rapist.
    GET RID OF HIM!!!! There will be trophies in the future without him.

What happens when u are drunk and stoned and hit a pedestrian in a crosswalk? Nothing? What about murder? Nothing? All these Raven fans talking crap and they have 2 douchebags on the roster. 2 killers guys should be proud….

    Has anyone given any thought to the idea that Ben Rothlsumpthin’ won’t finish the season healthy? In prison, guys that rape chics are akin to child molesters. Both need to be put into isolation or they will be killed. I have a funny feeling that with that o-line, not only will there be sacks, but defenses will feel entitled to make HARD sacks where he is driven into the ground with 300 pounds on top of him. Picture a lineman belly flopping on him, without trying to reduce the impact by touching the ground with any other part of his body. Even if find, there will be a wink and a nod among players, that this is “morally OK” to do, because after all, he is a rapist. That’s just what they will think. I’m not saying it will be proven in court. That will just be the players opinion, and none of them want to be associated with him. So, my bet is he is knocked out of a number of games due to injury, in addition to suspension, or he plays hurt, and throws a bunch of pics, to the delight of the rest of NFL fandom. It’s just not going to be a good year in Pittsburgh. It just isn’t.

  60. cgc1969 says: May 9, 2010 5:02 PM

  61. IStateYourName says: May 9, 2010 5:17 PM

    I believe we have made it clear to Ben and all of our players, that there will be consequences for behavior that does not meet our standards.
    We will continue to pay you fantastic sums of money but we wil be really really mad at you. On behalf of the entire Rooney family, we are glad you did not do this to one of our daughters or granddaughters because then we would have thought very seriously about possibly releasing you maybe.

  62. Just JTO says: May 9, 2010 5:42 PM

    I don’t see many Steelers fans SUPPORTING Ben. Many of us say he is a jerk, an ass, a dick … whatever. How many nof you fans of other teams say the same of your ‘stars’ who have run-ins with the law?
    Say what you want but I see ALL Ravens fans making excuses and defending Ray Lewis’s background. They don’t Mother-F Stallworth.
    What about Foster? What about Sean Peyton? What about PacMan? Tank? I can go on and on …
    You fans with those guys on your team defend them. Crime is crime but blast Steelers fans for being Steelers fans.
    Like I said, most Steelers fans don’t defend Roethlisberger. We’re not happy about the embarassment he has brought to our team. But we also know that many of you same jackasses who say get rid of him would cheer like hell if your team picked him up and he played like an All-Pro on the field. You do it now for your own criminals.
    Truth be known, Goodell has a huge problem on his hand in that its almost daily that these over-paid jerks around the league are getting into hot water with the law. Whether it be guns, drugs, rape, assault, whatever. Not just Steelers, my friends. It’s becoming real obvious all teams have turds that won’t flush. It’s getting worse.

  63. trickbunny says: May 9, 2010 6:01 PM

    I see that the Benablers are still out in force.
    How weird, creepy, and disgusting is it that these scumbag fans are totally willing to look the other way on someone who has been accused of sexual molestation not once, not twice, but three times. Never mind the seemingly dozens of other people who have come out to say that Roethlisberger just plain treats most people like shit. Hmmm… you have some scatterbrained diehard Steeler fans who’d probably consider it an honor if Ben raped their sister or wife, and they’d still trip over themselves to support him- and then you have EVERYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD. Gee, who are you going to believe?
    Still, the toothless hillbillies of western PA are all over his jock. I mean, wow, we have some disturbed freaks in our midst here, folks.

    I sit here and I read this and I am rolling in the floor laughing at this.
    1. Consider the source it came from, Like Deadspin is a really reliable source. I am amazed that the writers on here are that hard up to kick someone when they are down that they troll other sites just to get dirt. That just amazes me.
    2. Did Mr. Rooney actually write this letter. Does the thought cross anyones mind that actually has a brain, that anyone with todays technology could not manufacture a letter head and write a letter and make it look real. That has never happened has it.
    3. Well if he did write this letter , then hows come the fans that wrote and said that they were willing to give Ben a chance to turn his life around , as he asked in his press conference for them to do , hasnt gotten a letter thanking them for thier support. I know of several hundred people that did and have yet to get a reply.
    I am not going to judge Bens behavior that night, because he didnt act any diffent than any other single guy has that has had to much to drink.
    And to the rest of you on here that still believe he is guilty , that is your choice, but I choose not to believe the words of a bunch of scorned sorority girls that wear sexually suggestive name tags and follow men from bar to bar, and can not tell a straight story.
    And to the ones that ask what if that was your daughter? Well what if that was your son being falsely accused? I bet it would be a different story then.

    It’s funny how most of you dog on him, but dont realize that he’s been a starter for 6 years now, and has taken the team to the playoffs 5 out of the 6 seasons and 2 Super Bowls. you guys are sleepin on Big Ben.

    That line always makes me chuckle. Steeler fans conveniently forget that there were NFL championships before the Super Bowl and the Steelers did exist during this time as they were founded in 1933. What were they doing for 40+ years?
    If memory serves me right GB has the most NFL Championships, followed by Chicago and the NY Giants.
    My source? None other than the ole nfl.com….btw, the Steelers aren’t even listed. Why? Because they “have six”

    RebaT. Great post. Gives me a little faith in the Steeler fans to see one of the Steeler fans actually speak the truth…and to do so without drooling.
    RebaTe: You are probably every bit as messed up as your rapist QB. Maybe you should bunk with him. I bet his place smells like a mix of ball sweat and poo stains…much like your breath.

  73. mrogers18 says: May 9, 2010 6:52 PM

    This NFL Championships argument is straight garbage Jersey. The Superbowl is the measurement that we use to gauge the modern day NFL. You know the NFL that has more than 10 teams. The NFL that has the best football talent in the world. Not dispersed between rival leagues like earlier in the 20th century. Hey Ben is an asshole, but that doesn’t take away from the Steelers being, maybe, the best franchise in pro sports… and that is for how they handle issues on and off the field. Ben hasn’t been convicted of a crime and believe me, when he starts throwing TD’s in playoff games again the people will be using that as there argument to root for him again. Just watch ABC this week and tell me that rapists aren’t forgiven. Mike Tyson on The View and the Kobe weekend with his playoff run and “Ice in this Veins” crap.

    The Rooney’s say one thing do another is pathetic.
    its expulsion if you are a fringe player with domestic abuse. its handled ‘in house’ if you are a star. if you are a qb you get a really stern talking to and are told to hold yourself upright as you represent the team. Odd, i would have thought thats the speech he would hear as a snotnosed rookie qb entering the league.
    Art Rooney you remind me of Jerry Richardson.

    2. Ben was and still may be stupid
    3. What a story it will be when Goodell hands Ben the SB MVP trophy!
    4. We will cut him when he is no longer effective and winning… period!
    5. These guys are a paid to play who cares about the rest. When they don’t produce and/or we no longer want them we trade them to Cleveland.

    “I hope both you and your Fav QB have daughters and then we will see how funny it is”
    I guess that would depend entirely on whether or not I taught them to lie to get into adult clubs with fake IDs, chase after guys that are 50% older than they were, drink themselves comatose, while wearing t-shirts that said “DTF” (ie; I’m easy, and open for business!).
    Two of them managed to avoid those situations without any problems and now have families of their own.
    That Georgia skank got exactly what she set out to get, believe that.
    And once she sobered up and realized what her sorority sisters had gotten her into, her and her family decided they’d rather not see the truth about her plastered all over the newspapers.

    The Roomeys LOVE money. They pay their players the LESSER money of all the teams. Maybe it is because Steel Town doesn’t have that much too go the games.
    Ben needs to go. There is no salary cap this year and it i s the most obvious time to let him go. I have been a Steeler fan since I was 8. The Steel Curtain, Terry Bradshaw, all classic players. There are still very classy players such as Troy, Hines, Heath, etc. BUT, the QB is the leader, or suppose to be, of the team. NOBODY on this board can say that Ben doesn’t think he’s God. He does. I would bet my life savings he took advantage of that girl and there was male DNA in the rape kit. That’s why Ben bought the best lawyer he could find.
    I hope that the starting QB for the first 4, 6, or more games have a HUGE winning streak. How can you pull that QB and put in Ben? You can’t. It’s stupid. Ben is not sorry, he’s sorry he got caught. The speech he have was not even 1/2 hearted and he looked like a bum. I don’t hate men, I hate Ben. He’s not worth the dirt he stands on. It’s too bad that girl wrote to the DA not to press charges. People call her a whore, etc. That’s men talking, in general. Ben is the whore.

    yea (nutinbutdafactz) back then there was the AFL and NFL, two separate leagues which converts to modern day AFC and NFC conferences which now is one league: the NFL!
    those titles back then were only equal to winning modern day conference titles. The AFL and NFL never faced each other back then. A superbowl win is FAR SUPERIOR than an old school NFL or AFL title. just think about it you jackass! A superbowl is the whole championship title which means the STEELERS HAVE THE MOST with SIX, then SAN FRAN with FIVE, DALLAS with FIVE and etc. get it now FONGULA face! yea you

  84. CKL says: May 9, 2010 8:46 PM

    1) I don’t fault the Steelers for their media image as to wanting a certain standard for players. I see them as I see most other teams…willing to put up with a certain amount of BS to win games. Some teams put up with more, some less. But they all put up with it to a degree.
    2) I told my mom who is a Steelers fan that ALL Steelers fans NEED to follow closely the case of Vincent Jackson the 2 + time CHARGED offender (2 DUI, plus driving without license I think ). See what Goodell does about that. If this guy doesn’t get AT LEAST a 6 game suspension with potential to whittle down to 4 with counseling like he gave BR, then Steelers fans should be very, VERY pissed. I still to this day believe Goodell had no business being the one to suspend BR and the team should have done it a la the Steve Smith case in 08. This is a big big can of worms for the league IMO.
    3)I am a Pats fan so I don’t have a single reason to be pro Steelers on this. And also I have disliked BR’s personality from the beginning of his pro career. I don’t have an agenda. Fairness should be the only agenda Goodell is concerned with.

    CKL ,, thanks for that it is refreshing to see a fan from another team point out the obvious, Ben may have issues, but so do most of the players in the NFL . You spoke the truth it is now time for Goodell to stand up and show that he is fair. That is his issue awaiting him , alot of other players have stained the shield as of late, and need to be dealt with appropriately. BTW I dont have an issue with Bens suspension, I hope it is his wakeup call to get it together.
    Reba, We get you hate Ben, what a shock but sorry to disappoint you , yes this is an uncapped year and if the Rooneys wanted to unload him they would have done it . They did Santonio . Get over it Ben will remain a Steeler and you can keep on hating, Go root for another team if you dont like it. You will not be missed.

    Its all about the W, even to a franchise like the Steelers. If Big Douche, I mean Big Ben, comes back and somehow gets the team into the playoffs and wins a game or two after his much deserved suspension then all will be forgiven by those towel toting numbskulls. If he comes back and falls flat on his face for the remainder of the season then you’ll see him in another uniform the season after. No shock to any NFL fan… if he wins he stays, but if not its bye bye to Ben’s fat ass. He’s a douche plain and simple, and I hope he falls hard.

    The Green Bay Packers won the most championships but you don’t see their fans going around bragging about it. Green Bay fans have class.
    Every time Steelers fans throw out the “six championships” rhetoric (as if they are tops), their ignorance shines.
    Then there is this “We are better morally than anyone” rhetoric. That is further evidence of their ignorance. Ben is just one example. If he was a third-stringer, they’d probably would have cut him. But because he plays well on the field, he can practically do anything deviant and all is well in Steelerland.

    craigja: You don’t watch much football, do you? Ben is sacked more than any other starting QB in the NFL … and would get sacked a ton more if he didn’t routinely shrug off defenders and scramble to buy time.
    Over the past 4 seasons, Ben has been sacked 189 times …
    ’06 … 46 sacks
    ’07 … 47 times
    ’08 … 46 times
    ’09 … 50 times
    That’s as many 40+ sack seasons as Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Brett Favre, Phillips Rivers, Donovan McNabb, Tony Romo, Carson Palmer, Jay Cutler have … combined … in their entire careers.

    Enjoy kicking the NFL’s best organization while it’s down Steeler haters. Steelers will be coming to your town to kick some of your sorry team’s ass soon!

    “Now I’ll just root for whoever plays them. ”
    Nice side-step, but all you did was admit that you’re ashamed of your team.
    So in other words, your team sucks and you’re embarrassed to be associated with them. Either that or your roster must read like a who’s-who of convicted felons, or both.
    Understood.

    You know, if some of you douchebag excuses for “men” here had half a brain, you’d be pissed off and screaming in defense of the victim — Ben Roethlisberger.
    Because you’d realize that the accuser and her story that changed three times, follows the classic pattern of the false rape accusation.
    I only hope someday one of you douches gets accused of this.

    Ben has been accused of this THREE TIMES!!! I can’t speak for other people but I know I am not worried about getting accused of this because I am not a rapist. I’ll bet if Ben stopped attacking women the accusations would stop too.

    I am embarassed of the Steelers and of the Rooneys for trying to pawn this jerk off as the face of the franchise….and your’re right they are a who’s who of accused felons at this point. I lived in pittsburgh 43 years and have attended many games, but who cares anymore, the NFL really is just becoming a ghetto thug league. I’m done handing my cash to these fools.
    I have to admit, I didn’t realize I was dealing with an internet tough guy. Calling people “pussys” on a forum like this? You’re more pathetic than the Rooneys or the Steelers.
    LMFAO AACSWTHT

    3 times? Again with the misinformation. Oh you mean that story secondhanded from the kid in the juvenile program who heard it from his sister’s friend? Yeah, that chick that was so appalled by something Ben did she showed up THE FOLLOWING WEEK for a party at his place. Ha ha, the myths keep coming!
    Like I said, keep getting your thoughts controlled by sorority girls.

  128. badthings says: May 10, 2010 8:37 PM

    So Frank how many times have you been accused of rape?

  129. ambientnoise says: May 10, 2010 9:03 PM

    frank is a very angry man.

  130. Steelintn says: May 10, 2010 9:19 PM

    Not as many times as you probably have badthings.

    @Richm2256 …
    I’m an anonymous fan posting on a football blog. Why are you so preoccupied with my whereabouts? I’ve commented several times since the SI story appeared.
    As I’ve said from the beginning, Ben is a jackass. And it’s become more evident just how big a jackass. That doesn’t change the evidence in Nevada or Georgia. My only argument has been that the evidence doesn’t support a rape charge. Georgia investigators reached the same conclusion. So no matter how many times you stamp your lil feet and shake your lil fists, that case is closed.
    I support the suspension and hope it serves as a wakeup call. Ben now has the opportunity to clean up his life. It will take a lot more character than he’s demonstrated so far. Time will tell if he can meet the challenge.

    Don’t underestimate RebaT. We may do battle, but she’s still a woman. She’d be much more likely to carve up your liver than mine.

    “As usual, you forgot to mention that you’re defining “championship” as including games that took place even before the AFL-NFL merger.
    Those games couldn’t even be fairly compared to a modern day Conference Championship, let alone a Super Bowl.”
    ———————————
    While we are at it, all those Yankees championships before expansion, the DH, free agency, should not be counted if we are using your logic. Neither should any NBA Championship b4 the ABA merger. Also, all NCAA basketball championships b4 the game clock change should be discounted.
    The NFL didn’t start with Super Bowl I. There was a rich tradition and many classic championship games before it. The Packers had the greatest dynasty in the NFL’s history. Facts are facts. Not to take away from what the Steelers have done, but YOU ARE DEAD WRONG and look foolish.

    @edgarpoe ….
    Excellent post–and that’s coming from a diehard Steelers fan. Lombardi’s Packers won five consecutive championships, including the first two Super Bowls. Amazing accomplishment. When we’re smack-talking, we generally focus on the Super Bowl era. But the NFL has been around twice as long as the Super Bowl. Without Slingin’ Sammy Baugh, Jim Brown, George Halas, and other legends of the sport, we wouldn’t have the game we love today. Pretending those early championships didn’t count is like pretending the American Revolution didn’t count and our nation’s history began with WWI.

    She did not say “NO”. More propaganda here than the regular media.
    She said, “I don’t know if we should be doing this”, huge difference.
    See, she could do it, and then she wins either way. She has relations, which she wanted, but then can say she tried to say no. Old move, yawn.
    Gee, why did she go back there in the bathroom with a male in the first place??
    Spin, spin, spin. Lies, lies, lies.
    Win another ring Ben. Let em choke on it.

    If you are going to post to the board, get your facts right. Ben followed her to the bathroom. It just shows your ignorance to everyone anyways. I’m surprised he could get in the door being as fat as he is anyways. 241? Please! He’s at 300 if a pound.
