Rumors fly of new Roethlisberger golf course incident

We’ve received multiple e-mails over the past two days from folks sharing rumors of a new incident involving Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and a body part other than his heart.

As the rumor goes (and it’s spreading quickly), Roethlisberger was golfing in Columbus, Ohio, and he urinated on the course.  Though it’s not an uncommon event (I guess I can admit to it now since I haven’t golfed in at least 14 years, which likely exceeds all applicable statutes of limitation), the complicating factor in this case arose from the fact (supposedly) that a woman witnessed the incident, that she complained about it, and that she now wants to press charges.

We’ve temporarily donned our journalism fedora (it even has a card sticking out of the ribbon that says “PRESS”), and we’ve learned from a source close to Roethlisberger that he was indeed golfing in Columbus, Ohio but that another member of his foursome peed under a tree, prompting a complaint from a woman. 

Per the source, Roethlisberger got involved and helped to calm the woman down.  (Hopefully, not with shots.)

So while, for now, it appears that Roethlisberger won’t have to whip out the uromysitisis poisoning defense in order to avoid further scrutiny from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Ben may not be out of the woods.  Just like the Mike Vick bang-bang birthday party, the incident can attract the kind of scrutiny that potentially leads to information prompting further punishment from Goodell — or, possibly, a decision not to reduce Roethlisberger’s suspension from six games to four.

  1. I’m sorry, this is a joke!!. It’s a golf course, they generally serve beer at multiple locations yet usually only have two or three bathroom locations. It can be an hour or more depending on slow players in front before you get to one, taking a piss in the woods on a golf course is extremely common.

  2. I’m going to go around randomly accusing people simply so that they are guilty for that reason.. and not by fact or anything

  3. Hahaha, dude just can’t get a break. The pitfalls of living your life in the limelight.

  4. As much as I want to see Rapistburger see thrown out of the league, this sounds like a non-story.

  5. I have never been a defender of Big Ben through all of his troubles, but this is ridiculous. Get over it lady!

  6. Tell the woman to get over it. Animals pee on the ground, what harm does it do? Who cares if some guy pees on a tree? How many readers can honestly say they have _NEVER_ done that in their lifetime (college, frat, party, golf, whatever).
    If this becomes a “big deal”, our society is becoming a bunch of sissies. tell the guy “don’t do it again” (wink) and move on.

  7. This is tough. If it was Ben the problem is people will start crying that he took it out on purpose for the girl (even though I can almost assure you that is not the case), but if it wasn’t him then how hard can you really crack down on him? I mean it isn’t like there are bathrooms out on the golf course. Everyone that has played atleast a few rounds has urinated off in the woods somewhere, the real question is whether himself or his friend bothered to go off to an area that they were not likely to be seen or if they jus decided to whip it out in the middle of the fairway. Either way I don’t see any further punishment for Ben from Goodell, unless another of these “non-issue” stories arises before the season begins.

  8. At least now we know why Tomlin hurried up and signed that contract. He knew to get it while he could.

  9. Ok I hate fat Ben and think he is guilty of sexual assault and rape but had the money to get out of it, but come on. I seriously don’t care if he did piss on a golf course and if some woman saw it then get the hell over it. A dude taking a leak into the trees is not a big deal.

  10. Really lady? I would argue that trying to squeeze a guy for something like this is worse than screaming rape after giving the guy a consensual “Clinton.”

  11. So in short, someone Roethlisberger was golfing with took a piss in the woods….
    Great news story!

  12. I want to meet one guy who golfs who hasn’t taken a bathroom break on the back nine. This one of the benefits of being a guy…the world is our bathroom!
    The world is turning into a ridiculous place…

  13. To summarize…
    A guy that may or may not have been Roethlisberger took a whiz under a tree on a golf course.
    Yawn.

  14. Rothelisberger was golfing? I don’t care about the woman seeing whomever pee. I’m just shocked that he’s playing a round of golf and not studying his playbook. Him and Tony Romo must not have the drive it takes to win a championship…. oh… wait.

  15. Part of Golf is peeing in the Trees. That’s just how it is.
    I would watch out for Trouser Snakes out in the rough though (especially when Ben is around).

  16. If every golf course in America had to close for a day each time someone urinated during a round of golf you’d never be able to find an open golf course.
    Get over it lady.

    ==================================
    Go ahead and knock yourself out with that one Jon. You can start by accusing boyfriend Funi.

  18. “Big Ben just insists on pissing away his career…..”
    LOL!
    But seriously folks, if you can’t piss on a golf course without discretion it’s because your slammed drunk or because you want to be seen. I think it’s probably both in his case. Hasn’t he seen adds for the fake club thing to piss in on TV? Is public intoxication against the rules of his reinstatement? I thought he was going to quit drinking? Worst case scenario he misses the rest of the season.

  19. What the hell is a woman doing on a golf course?!?!
    And western civilization continues to slide ever-so-slowly into the abyss…

  20. Regardless if it is done all the time or not, it is illegal. If I’m drunk (which we may or may not know if alcohol was involved) and take a p*ss outside, anda cop catches me, I am screwed. And so would those people defending him if it were them.

  21. Ruthless helped calm the woman down. By squeezing her windpipe until she was completely relaxed.

  22. give me a fvcking break. people piss on the golf course all the time. this is the biggest piece of crap story i’ve read on here in a while and that’s saying something

  23. If you are going to pee on the golf course make sure nobody is looking. How dumb are you? Good to see Ben surrounds himself with decent people upholding his image.

  24. Who cares! I just p*ssed in a parking lot the other night. Sometimes you just can’t hold it!

  25. The real story is that he was attempting to rape a tree and urinating was just the cover story. The unidentified evergreen is said to be pressing charges. PETT (People for Ethical Treatment of Trees) is furious over this incident and is demanding that the commissioner suspend Big Ben indefinitely and they plan to picket any games he plays.

  26. Through a worker at the course it has been said that it was absolutely Ben, and he whipped it out in the middle of the fairway….what a retard

  27. Seriously…
    Has anyone ever noticed that you’ll seriously check out a woman on a golf course that you wouldn’t even glance at on the street.
    Why is that?
    What happens to our DNA on that short trip from the car to the pro shop?
    In our everyday lives we’re rational, discerning woman-watchers…but get us on a golf course and we’re Bill Murray cleaning our golfballs, while watching wrinkled-up bags of skin.

  28. He’s how that all happened.
    Big Ben went into a small wooden shelter, found a knot hole, and proceeded to place his member in the hole and urinate.
    Meanwhile, being ladies day, a foursome of women happened to see the little feller spewing out on the other side of the wall.
    First one went up and looked and said, “That’s not my husband.”
    Second one went up and said the same thing, as did the third. The fourth lady, the one pressing charges, said after taking a very, very long look, “You know, he’s not even a member of this course!”
    She then became enraged when she found out Ben was not a member while at the same time letting her pre-golf activities out of the bag. As a result she started getting ribbed by her golf mates, had a hissy fit and pressed charges to save face.
    NOW YOU KNOW the rest of the story!!!!

  29. Pittsburg just needs to cut him so some other team can win a Super Bowl……
    Teams waiting in line for Ben to be cut.
    Minnesota, Buffalo, Ravens, Phoenix,San Francisco, Seattle, Jacksonville, Carolina, Miami, Eagles, Browns, St. Louis, Kansas City, Tampa
    Any others?

  30. This is an absolute joke!!!! Call in the National Guard….someone had to take a piss on a golf course.

  31. @ KAZ: Regardless if it is done all the time or not, it is illegal. If I’m drunk (which we may or may not know if alcohol was involved) and take a p*ss outside, anda cop catches me, I am screwed. And so would those people defending him if it were them.
    REALLY DUDE? WTF? He himself or a buddy of his took a piss….just because you have to sit down to pee….

  32. You guys do realize there is a big difference between discretely peeing along the treeline, and doing it in a manner where you can, oh I don’t know, be considered “exposing” your “indecent” parts to people, right?
    If someone saw his junk, he wasn’t being discrete, now was he?
    You can pee along the side of the road too (not that it’s especially illegal) but if you do it facing traffic you’re being an asshole.

  33. Well, there you go Florio. Page hits must have been down and you were getting some heat from NBC which employs you for God knows what reason so you post some nonsense to get people in a frenzy. Look at the comments on this article… you happy now? Idiot.

  34. So what exactly does this woman want to press charges for? Indecent exposure? STFU woman. Act like you ever seen a dick before.
    If anyone would make a big deal about this, it’s the golf course. But that’s unlikely.

  35. I think Ben should stay off the golf course and watch porn on his computer like the rest of you.

  36. She couldn’t see the offending individuals face, but she was certain he was not a regular member of the club.

  37. WhoDeySood5
    Through another worker at the golf couse it was confirmed that Carson Palmer and Chad Ochostinko were part of his foresome…and were fighting over who got to shake it for him afterward. What a couple of homos!

  38. Basic Instinct: Carolina? You may not know them yet, but Carolina has 4 QBs who are or will be very good. No other team in the league is as stacked at QB. They also have a pretty tight character policy, even though every team has its moments.
    Here is the problem. Fans and the media kiss athletes’ asses from the time they first started teething on a football. All they hear is how great they are; we throw scholarships and millions of dollars at them. They are given everything they want, some then dicide to take what they want.

  39. This fits in the slow NFL news time so lets create something out of nothing catagory. The guy’s a dirtbag, but this claim is irrelevant and worthless. By the 17th hole, I’ve probably whizzed on the course twice. Big frigging deal.

  40. wow. really? who complains about somebody peeing on a golf course??? hell, walk down a main street in any college town and there will be people urinating everywhere. what a non-story.

  41. The government should have Rapisitberger castrated so he can never have another perv incident again.

  42. This guy can’t catch a break while trying to pee. Goes in his hotel room, crazy broad complains. Tries to use public restroom in a club, some frat girls is whining to police. Tries to take a leak on a tree some girl is there to get him. What they should do is have a line up like they did in Porky’s and see who many can ID the culprit.

  43. I’m not a Ben supporter per se, but if anyone on here bashes him for this, you are a moron. I don’t know anyone who golfs more than twice a year who hasn’t done this! This woman shouldn’t be allowed to golf. I now kind of understand why Augusta tries to keep women off the course! (That was a joke)

  44. According to a buddy of mine that works at the golf course there is more to this story. First of all this course, Murfield is home to the Memorial Tournament and is surrounded by million dollar homes. According to my friend’s story, Ben went into someones back yard and took a leak. The cops were called by this woman and now she wants to press charges. He also was decided to walk out on his bar tab. Guessing the woman is a Browns fan.

    Don’t believe me? Try it. Right in front of a cop and see what happens…. I’m just saying, if it was me, you, or anyone else caught pissing outside we’de be screwed. You disagree?

  46. again, it was Ben…not a member of his foursome (haha) and he pissed in the middle of the fairway not in the woods or in the trees like EVERYONE else that isn’t a f*ing moron does….. wood/trees= safe/non-story….in the middle of the fairway= back to his arrogant above social norms way of thinking…..

    some of you need to call her a gold digging whore, because we all know that’s the only type of women who ever are in the vicinity of poor poor lil sweet innocent angel ben.

  51. @flake13 LOL
    Ben was just under the impression that it stood for
    G-entleman
    O-nly
    L-adies
    F-orbidden

  52. This guy must have a brain the size of a pea. What an idiot. Glad he’s not my team’s QB.

  53. Christ, what a felony. Pissing on a golf course. If that’s against the law of big brother, then give me the chair

  54. Per the source, Roethlisberger got involved and helped to calm the woman down. (Hopefully, not with shots.)
    LOL…funniest comment on this board ever!

  55. Now wait a minute…
    Chutzd Says he knows for sure that it was in someone’s backyard…
    WhoDeySood5 knows for sure it was in the middle of the fairway…
    You haters need to get your stories straight. Don’t you guys rehearse?

  56. So Florio really just compared an investigation into a shooting with someone peeing on a golf course?
    Seriously dude, get a life.

  57. On Sunday, I was at my normal golf course that consists of three nine-hole courses. Some doorknobs made the turn and prior to teeing off on their next nine (hole 10 for them), two off the players went to the side of the tee-box and urinated. This nine is directly in front of the clubhouse. The bar area of the clubhouse also overlooks the first tee. Everyone in the bar had a great laugh at their expense (including the females). No one mentioned a law suit or bringing charges; just references to “idiots”, etc. If they were famous, I could only guess what the response would be from any attention seeking, egocentric, self-absorbed person.

  58. Per Rich Gannon and Adam Schein of Sirius radio:
    “This is irresponsible reporting and this is a non-story.”
    I hate Roethlisberger, but give the man a break!

  59. “I know all the regular members”, said the woman, “and this was not someone’s I recognized.”.

  60. someone’s list is screwy.
    first, tampa, frisco, st. louis, miami, balto and kc HAVE won super bowls. miami and kc were a while ago…
    detroit, atlanta, cincy, texans, titans, chargers also have not.

    Either way it was still Ben unleashing “mini-ben” in Public on a VERY respectable golf course….peeing isn’t raping, but the point is that he just “doesn’t get it”…the same could be said for you Flake13

  62. what the hell is a man supposed to do with no restroom in sight and grand old daddies moving like snails on the golf course

    Ha! Good one … I heard he likes a nice piece of ash.

  64. Btw, the “old” golf course story on this site was the alleged “confrontation” with Arnold Palmer who supposedly baned Ben from playing Laurel Valley again.
    Palmer’s words debunked that story. And Ben and Natalie Gulbis played Laurel Valley together a few months ago.
    Again Florio, get a life.

  65. LMAO….Ben just can’t resist pulling it out…That should seal the 6 games suspension instead of a potential 4 game suspension..what a moron.

  66. I once got yelled at while golfing for peeing on the side of the outhouse. I was like, “Why go inside to pee when it’s so nice out?”
    In other words, not a big deal.

  67. He probably couldn’t hold it because the woman and her idiots friends were playing slower than turtles in front of him. There is nothing worse than a gaggle of old bags with their stupid pink visors taking a half hour to play each hole.
    Listen, I crushed Big Ben over the Milledgville thing but this is a joke.

  68. Man this is crazy.
    If your in the NFL you should:
    Get to have sex with who you want when you want regardless of age.
    You should be able to carry guns where ever you want.
    You should be able to let domestic animals fight to the death if you want.
    You should be able to smash as many strippers in the face as you want.
    You should be able to smoke, snort or shoot up what you want.
    And least of all you should be able to whip it out and urinate where ever you want.
    I mean for crying out loud, your great at childhood game and that should put you way way way above the law. WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

  69. If Arnold Palmer pissed in the woods and no one was there, did it happen? (?!?)
    MAJOR WTF!?! story here …
    Trees need watering too … and even celebrities need to piss …

  70. Big Ben takes a leak with a chick in plain view = moron deserving of whatever comes his way.
    He should honestly hire a PERSONAL ASSISTANT to follow him around. They can advise Ben on what to do and not do, and they can also bang the sloppy seconds.
    Sounds like a dream job for some of you fools on PFT.com.

  71. Who the hell has EVER gone golfing without peeing in the woods?
    This is such a completely BOGUS “incident.”

  72. Man, this guy has everything backwards…he gets a hole in one in a bathroom and takes a leak on a golf course. If he switched those two things around he’d be getting praise right now instead of scorn

  73. Who hasn’t pissed on a golf course? Anyone who plays golf has seen this hundreds of times. I can’t stand Ben, but this is borderline extorsion.

  74. WhoDeySood5
    I just think he deserves to be confronted by the truth.
    When first interviewed by police the Milladgeville girl said “No. He didn’t rape me.” next morning she said he did.
    At the hospital she said he raped her while she was sitting on the toilet. The next day she said she couldn’t remember what position she was in.
    Now you say it happened in the middle of the fairway…and someone else said it happened in someone’s yard.
    You don’t get it…all of this can’t be true…lies are being told.

  75. G.O.L.F.
    Gentleman Only, Ladies Forbidden
    I use the term gentleman loosely but give the guy a break.
    If she has never seen a guy take a leak on a golf course before, she has never golfed…

    ==========================
    That’s f****** brilliant. Post of the Day.

  77. Seriously ? I mean come on…. I do not understand what goes through someone like Ben’s head ( the one on his shoulder ) If you have been in this much trouble with the NFL and law enforcement then why would you whip it out on a golf course and piss…. It is beyond me what would make him think its ok, knowing people are around and someone could see him doing this. I understand it might be “Common” but when you are under a spot light and people are watching for you to make a mistake you just cannot put your self in a bad situation. Which whipping it out and pissing in public is concidered indecent exposure and can get you in trouble. It just makes me scratch my head when i see pro athleates throwing there careers away by doing stupid things! Any one of us on here would give a right arm to make what they are making and have the name they have. Apparently fame and fortune is not enough for them to stop the stupidity!

  78. Golfers have been taking leaks all over the golf course for YEARS. I would bet even the new hero TIGER has done it a time or two.
    “Per the source, Roethlisberger got involved and helped to calm the woman down. (Hopefully, not with shots.)”
    Really? Is PFT a news site ot a TMZ site?
    If this was true, the ticket is public record and would have Ben’s name on it.
    Until that’s confirmed, STFU about it.

  79. To add… If GODell is a golfer, I GUARANTEE he has taken a leak during a round that WASN’T in the two or three port-o-johns that cover 18 holes.

  80. I would love to see the lawsuit!…I’m suing Ben Rothlisberger for punitive damages due to his brandishing of his “utility club” all over my Weeping Willow.

    ————————————
    I agree that this is a non-story, but animals don’t live in a civilized society.

  82. You cannot give the guy any break. He’s demonstrated enough lapses of common sense which explains the position he got to even before the “hose” incident. The man needs to keep a level head and be Gotdamned cognizant of where he is and what he’s doing, otherwise these “mental farts” such as pissing on a back nine will get him undivided attention even from the hacks that run this joint. Not that there’s anything wrong with relieving oneself on a golf course (provided the donator er pissor is in total stealth mode). Perhaps Ben needs a refresher course on the definition of “stealth”…….

  83. It’s good to see the level of education the average Steeler-hater brings to this website. READ the article. Ben was golfing WITH the person who pissed in the woods.
    It’s also obvious the average hater can’t afford to play golf so I’ll give you a quick lesson. This happens all the time. Golf takes a long time to play and there aren’t many restrooms on golf courses. You figure it out.
    Go back to being jealous of the 6 SB trophies.

  84. Florio you are the man. Hey Squeeler fans, great news. Your Rothlishomo in trouble again. I said it before and will say it again, Rothlishomo won’t be playing Squeeler football in 2010, and NO PLAYOFFS AGAIN. Watch a real team win the division. The Ravens!!!!!!!!!!!!

  85. A standing rule of golf among men is that if your drive doesn’t make it past the ladies’ tee box, you need to play the rest of the hole with your manhood out to prove you actually have a manhood.
    I hate the Steelers and Rothlecrapper but rules are rules.

  86. This thread sums up PFT and it’s readers to a “T”.
    Foolio posts an unsubstantiated rumor, then later explains that the rumor is false. Idiot Bengals fans like KAZ and retard Ravens fans run with the rumor as fact and cry for a longer suspension because they know their teams can’t contend with a Steelers team with Roethlisberger on the field.
    Steelers news = page hits. Foolio is a dunce, but even he knows this is fact.

  87. As a former Cross Country runner who has pissed just about everywhere and who’s developed a strong understanding of botany while making the woods my longer-termed bathroom, Big Ben pissing on a golf course couldn’t bother me less.

  88. Do you people even read the article? Or do the headlines give you enough reason to make ignorant posts?
    Ben wasnt even the one pissing, not even in question. Nice try thou

  89. Yes I have urinated on a golf course, but I always went deep into the woods or just held it till the turn or end of the round. I never did it with women around, even when some have told me it was ok. I also do not appreciate finding my ball on an errant drive lying in a puddle of piss. I am not saying it is totally unacceptable but it is only appropriate at certain time and place and never around women who BTW have just as much right to a round of golf as anyone. It is just an indicator of how much respect you have for others. I cannot think of a golf course that doesn’t have portable facilities at mid points of each nine. Be classy – use them.

  90. Haters wanna hate, lovers wanna love, I don’t even want none of the above I want to piss on you. Yes i do, I’ll piss on you. Your body, your body is a port a potty. Only thing make my life complete is when I turn your face into a toilet seat. Your never, quite the same, when I you get a whiff of my hershey stains, I want to poop on you too, I want to pee in your food. Seriously, I really do want to pee on you.

  91. This sounds like nothing. However, it is inaccurate for the NFL to put forward, or for sites like PFT to continue to report, that he has a 6 game suspension that might be reduced to 4. What he has is a 4 game suspension that could be increased to 6. With proper behavior, it will be 4. Proper behavior is what should be expected. Just call it what it is.

  92. All you people that are saying it’s no big deal you do realize that pissing in public is against the law right? You get caught and you will have to register as a sex offender the rest of your life. You think I am joking? Look it up!

    Regardless if it is done all the time or not, it is illegal. If I’m drunk (which we may or may not know if alcohol was involved) and take a p*ss outside, anda cop catches me, I am screwed. And so would those people defending him if it were them.
    ——————————————————————
    Actually, it depends on the cop… When I was in College at Pittsburgh, I was walking home from a bar, and stopped to pee on the front lawn of a church. I didn’t really realize that it was a church, so hold the “you’re going to hell” comments. But a cop stopped me in mid stream. He said “Hey, what are you doing?” I told him I had to pee. He just told me to keep moving. Now, if this were that big of a deal, he surely would have nailed me for peeing on a church. Just sayin’…

  94. Wonka says: Steelers news = page hits. Foolio is a dunce, but even he knows this is fact.
    I don’t think it’s so much Steeler news, it’s Ben being a dumbass news. For instance, the Tomlin post doesn’t get that many comments but Ben whipping out his dick on a golf course does. See the diff. Yes, of course he (Perez) does come back later and state that it wasn’t Ben or whatever but it’s still funny if you aren’t a Steeler fan. At least funny in that, how ignorant can one human being be, way. Because if Ben actually did whip it out in public right now- anywhere- it would prove that he’s an even bigger fool than we all already thought and that amount of fool I’m not sure this world has ever seen.

  95. Florio has missed a great opportunity to educate the public about the tradgedy that is uromycitisis, and the humiliation suffered by those of us with the “U” gene, having to live in constant fear, having to piss all over town, in buildings, elevators and yes, on the golf course. I’m at Panera Bread, using the wi-fi, pissing under the table as I post. Sad, so sad.

  96. This is hillarious.
    Typical pissburg fan: It’s no big deal!! People piss on the golf course all the time. There shouldn’t be any women out there. He didn’t do it, really!!! WAAAAAAA!!!!
    Typical ratbird fan: Now that ben’s out, we can win it all. We won it all the last time we had 4 gimme games against the Browns and bungles.
    Typical bungles fan: Suspend him for 10 games!!! The league owes us that after their fat ass NG fell on our QB in the playoffs.
    Now, the answer from the Browns fan: Crap!! Don’t suspend that stupid bastard for any more than the original 4 games. I want to see his ass kicked again like last year!! 8 more sacks coming your way on first game back pee-boy!!!!

  97. Now wait a minute…
    Chutzd Says he knows for sure that it was in someone’s backyard…
    WhoDeySood5 knows for sure it was in the middle of the fairway…
    You haters need to get your stories straight. Don’t you guys rehearse?
    ____________________ ______________-
    Either way it was still Ben unleashing “mini-ben” in Public on a VERY respectable golf course….peeing isn’t raping, but the point is that he just “doesn’t get it”…the same could be said for you Flake13
    ————————————
    Ummm, maybe except for the fact that the only known source anyone can find to quote is saying that it wasnt Ben, and he was simply acting as a peacemaker..
    There is not one single mention of anyone’s back yard, yet you make stuff up and then tell others how they “dont get it”???
    The most intelligent people, and the ones who admit when they dont know something, which none of us know enough at this point to say exactly what happened at the golf course. No its the morons who make crap up just so they can act like they actually know something for once…

    All you people that are saying it’s no big deal you do realize that pissing in public is against the law right? You get caught and you will have to register as a sex offender the rest of your life. You think I am joking? Look it up!
    ——————-
    wrong

  99. Goodell caused all of this.
    Once he suspended the man based solely on rumors, rumors will fly forever. At this point, it would not even surprise me if Ben got a longer suspension. Even if another guy publicly admits it was him. DTF’s ridiculous story was physically impossible, not even plausible enough to even waste a juror’s time, yet a suspension was given out.
    A rumor can get you suspended. The NFL has become Iran. A rumor of adultery can get you stoned to death.
    So for those of you calling for more punishment. I say WHY NOT? It’s already happened once.
    I’m personally going to accuse Carson Palmer of raping me, but I’m waiting until the time is right. There will be no evidence and no arrest. The a buddy of mine will do the same thing. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Right?
    4 to 6 games.
    Let the Salem Witch Hunt commence.

  100. Who hasn’t pissed behind a tree on a golf course before? I am a Bengals fan and I agree the guy was out of line in the other incidents, but this is joke. Let’s play some football already!!

  101. Florio, why are you such a pansy? I know that is probably a requirement to get a job with NBC. But, this is ridiculous.

  102. @ Cushing Will Kill You
    He raped the tree with his piss..
    in all seriousness, this is just some pathetic woman trying to get money and attention… move along..

  103. Far be it from me to defend Roethlisberger, but even if it was him peeing, this lady needs to get over it.
    Seriously, you CHOOSE to be offended by a natural human function like that. Get the hell over it lady.
    This lady should be imprisoned for over-sensitivity and she should be fined for bringing a frivolous lawsuit forward.
    Ridiculous.

    Please, please show mercy!
    Don’t unleash Delhomme to Engram on us!
    For the love of God, how can we ever hope to survive!?

  105. ****
    After the alleged incident, Tiger Woods was seen “comforting” the woman. Ben Roethlisberger’s response to the accusation is that, she wanted to see it.
    ****

  106. Urinating in public?
    Who hasn’t done this?
    Now if Benny pooped his pants, then we have something.

  107. WTF is a woman on a golf course any way. Her man needs to take her shoes slap her and put her back in the kitchen. These days if you see a dud pissing and he is trying to hide but someone see’s anyway big deal. Press Charges… really?

  108. Go sh*t in your hat people……
    Police investigated Big Ben foursome for golf pee
    By Carl Prine
    PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
    Tuesday, July 13, 2010
    Last updated: 2:08 pm
    Police in Dublin, Ohio, today confirmed they investigated a complaint that a member of a golfing foursome that included Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was caught urinating behind a tree bordering the prestigious Muirfield Village Golf Club.
    Dublin police said they did not issue any citations. The female property owner didn’t want to press charges. Roethlisberger was not the person seen urinating Thursday afternoon between the 17th and 18th holes and the country club agreed to handle the matter by reminding members to use restrooms, according to the police.
    “We received a call that said a member of the party urinated on private property,” said Dublin police spokesman David Ball. “We spoke to the golf course and they agreed to discuss this issue internally with their members.”
    Police didn’t interview the foursome — friends from Roethlisberger’s hometown of Findlay, Ohio — and they played through the 18 holes.
    The NFL and Roethlisberger’s agent, Ryan Tollner, declined to comment.

  109. So much for the old “flying rumors” eh, Florio?

    This thread sums up PFT and it’s readers to a “T”.
    Foolio posts an unsubstantiated rumor, then later explains that the rumor is false. Idiot Bengals fans like KAZ and retard Ravens fans run with the rumor as fact and cry for a longer suspension because they know their teams can’t contend with a Steelers team with Roethlisberger on the field.
    Steelers news = page hits. Foolio is a dunce, but even he knows this is fact.
    ______
    I won’t even be mad at you. I know your offseason has been one for the ages, very entertaining, and difficult for steeler fans tp swallow (If your a drunk college girl stuck in a bathroom with Big Ben anyway). Don’t get your panties in a bunch. It’ll be iight.

  111. Bubba got it straight from his son’s dog groomers caddy. That the lady said that it was Ben she didn’t know about the big, but that he shook it way to many times in her direction.

  112. Rapistberger belongs in prison.
    I hope this is enough to get this scumbag out of the league for good.

    That is the funniest thing I’ve ever heard. Thanks for making my day!!!!!
    The Browns will always be a joke.
    Go Steelers…

  114. Again… No charges filed….ROETHLISBERGER WAS NOT THE PERSON SEEN URINATING THURSDAY AFTERNOON BETWEEN THE 17TH AND 18TH HOLES… Another false accusation.

  115. Just two weekends ago…..Me and the boys chartered a boat for an overnight fishing trip…Six of us, and it took us 20 minutes to load all the beer into the boat, the Captain just stood there, and eventually said, i may need a new bilge pump by the time you boys are done….Every last one of us pissed over the side multiple times during the trip, i hope we aren’t suspended from watching NFL games this year….This is a completely ridiculous story….

  116. My friend’s wife wanted to golf with us once. She had to go and wanted to take the cart to the nearest bathroom. We made her find a log in the woods, cuz I’ll be damned if I’m going to get to the tee box, puss out and decide to lay up with a 3 iron, and have to wait 10 minutes for her to take a leak so I can get my club.

  117. I heard a story that Ben got kicked out of a public pool for peeing in it when he was a kid.
    Ben asked the lifeguard “Why are you only kicking me out, the other kids are doing it too?”
    The lifeguard replied “Yes, but you are the only one standing on the side.”

  118. Sounds like a cover up to me. I’m not surprised. When Ben rushed to “calm the woman down” what they didn’t see is his hand slip that wad of money in her pocket.

  119. I am just cracking up at the illogical nobodies in life who are like… picking apart ben over this incident. AHaha i saw one saying hes i nthe spotlight! blablaba Hes in the nfl! i should get his spit cause I wouldnt pee on a course! yadada.. no all you said is that you are jealius he makes more money than you and have no grasp of reality.
    Anyway. Even if it was him taking a piss, WHO CARES. I will go walk down to a course, find my self a nice oak tree and urniate allllll over it. I might even write my name. Does that make anything ive done in life discredited? Does it make my life moot? am I a bad person? no, I simply peed on a damn tree. If ANYONE here attempts to attack ben or anyone for that… they are simply hyypocrits because there is not a man OR WOMAN who has not peed outside a restroom in their lifetime.
    Ps: no one knows exactly where he went so stop assuming, anyway it doesnt matter.

  120. A lot of the commenters seem to be think it was the urine that was offensive. The part that was offensive was that Little Ben [or his associate] had his wanger out in public.

  121. That woman is a litigious POS who gives a bad name to women golfers. If charges were pressed against every guy who pees on a golf course, our entire justice system would collapse. If anything, this is Exhibit A for why so many golf clubs fought tooth and nail to keep women out. Get a life, lady!

  122. 165 comments and counting – at least 70% of them idiotic – NBC has got to be sooooo proud to have this site as part of it’s “family”.
    Time for me to go on hiatus again – you folks are such idiots….

  123. duffsbeer= moron
    ……..date rape is also pretty common, especially on college campuses. That doesn’t mean it isn’t a punishable offense!

  124. Ladies and gentlemen I give you PFT, the National Inquirer of sports “news”. Adam Schefer and Rich Gannon blasted thus story as “irresponsible journalism”and they’re right. Florio is a hack!

  125. This thug should be kicked out of the league. Just continues to embarrass the Steelers and the NFL. And people keep making excuses for this degenerate. If this thug pissed in front of your mom or your wife you would feel differently. Once a thug always a thug I guess.

  127. This really isn’t much of an incident, but you guys who think the woman is out for money are in left field.
    If this woman can afford to live at Muirfield Village, she can buy and sell Ben several times over.
    More likely she’s just an old prude.

    Only 70%? The topic is just begging for idiocy. Heck we haven’t even heard from AllCrap or Badthings yet. Keep up the good work PFT!

  129. Damn, I am laughing so hard at these posts that I can hardly type!
    Does anyone know if Lorena Bobbit golfs?
    The NFL should hire her to be Big Ben’s bodyguard…that would straighten him out real quick!

  131. For everyone who wants him suspended, I hope to God whenever you get caught pissing outside you lose your job for a year!

    ******************************
    Litigious?
    Are you really that stupid?
    On what basis could she sue?
    More apologist BS.

  135. Even in baltimore you don’t whip it out on the green at the best golf course in the area. Again, the Rapist just doesn’t get it. The molester is the best thing to happen to the steelers since mark malone!

  136. “Peeing on a golf course isn’t illegal. It’s frowned upon, like masturbating on an airplane.”
    “I’m pretty sure that’s illegal too.”
    “Yeah, maybe after 9/11, where everybody got so sensitive. Thanks a lot, bin Laden.”

  137. Too lazy to go through and check if this a repost, but I know if you get 3 urination in public violations, by law you have to register as a sex offender…I wonder if this plus the two alligations of sexual assault can lead to the same thing. Can you imagine?? Would the NFL even let a registered sex offender play??

    What the hell is a woman doing on a golf course?!?!
    ——————————————————
    She was probably the cart lady bringing Ben another beer.

  140. I can understand the rape incident, but now this?! How horrible! Suspend him for the season!

  141. HOLY urination Batman!!!! A guy was peeing on a golf course… who would have thought that being out in nature for 5 hours, drinking beer, and being around all of those trees and bushes would cause one to use said cover to relieve themselves of excess liquids.
    And women wonder why guys really don’t dig them on the golf course… this should help ease that

  142. anyone that is talkin trash because of some piss on a golf course is just being a bitch at this point….. i golf constantly and piss on the course even more……the luxuries of being a guy

  143. The only things Ben will piss on this year is the lousy secondaries in the AFC North…..especially the piss-poor secondary in Baltimoron.

  144. Just imagine what would have happened if he didn’t get his drive past the ladies tee!

  145. Alan Shepherd was America’s first Mercury astronaut into space back in 1961. A delay of hours in the lift-off left him having to go very, very badly. Had the launch gone off on time Shepherd would have been back to Earth after only 15 minutes of a designated sub-orbital flight. No one had accounted for this long delay or for any means for the man to relieve himself. He was finally allowed to just pee into his space suit. The launch finally went off and that poor man had pee floating around inside his space suit for 15 minutes in zero-gravity no less!!
    The guy should have gotten the Medal of Honor for that one.
    So Ben had to go and wasn’t near a bathroom. Big deal! What guy on the planet hasn’t been in that situation a number of times over the course of his life? No choice? Then ya go where ya can go.

  146. Oh no – they just had a golfer in the British Open turn his back in the bushes and relieve himself. Call the police… (oh wait, it’s Britian…less idiots there)
