Big Ben ditches his "hometown"

NFL_roethlisberger3.jpgWhen officially entering the Hall of Fame on Saturday night, linebacker Rickey Jackson repeatedly mentioned his hometown.  Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger apparently will be mentioning his hometown no more.

Roethlisberger, per the Associated Press, has changed his hometown from Findlay, Ohio to Corey Rawson.  It’s a town so small that, well, it doesn’t exist. 

Roethlisberger, as the AP points out, once attended Cory-Rawson School.

We’ve confirmed that, indeed, Roethlisberger’s “hometown” and “birthplace” are identified as “Corey Rawson, Ohio” in the Steelers’ 2010 media guide.

In the 2010 NFL Official Record and Fact Book, Findlay still appears as Roethlisberger’s hometown.  At Steelers.com, Roethlisberger (unlike other players) currently has no hometown listed

The AP speculates that Roethlisberger made the change because of criticism he received from members of his prior hometown in the wake of his Milledgeville misadventures, which triggered a six-game suspension from the NFL. 

But if that’s the case, shouldn’t Roethlisberger also say that he plays for the Corey Rawson Steelers?

If it’s true that Roethlisberger actually changed the name of his hometown due to criticism levied against him by people in Findlay that he embarrassed via actions that, regardless of criminal guilt, resulted in a significant suspension from the league office, it’s hard to believe that Roethlisberger truly has learned from his “mistakes.”  It also shows that he’s pretty damn thin-skinned, which should make for some interesting moments if/when he’s booed at Heinz Field — and when/when he hears chants like “she said no!” once the Steelers play in towns other than Pittsburgh.

Or Corey Rawson.

    Who cares? This guy is a putz. How about more Patriots / Saints talk?

  3. ravens suck says: Aug 12, 2010 9:29 PM

    Or when he lights up the opposing defense that he will be playing against on Feb 6, 2011 in Corey Rawson TX…he might have rocks for brains, but this will be the year he is mentioned as a top 3 QB..

  4. bigtrav425 says: Aug 12, 2010 9:29 PM

    if this is true…he is a bigger scumbag then i thought.Dude if u cant take the heat you shouldnt be in the spotlight or put urself in the spotlight…positive or negative…this a-hole needs to go to miami and play

  5. JVult says: Aug 12, 2010 9:29 PM

    What a pointless article. Must you and Rosenthal write about every little thing that happens with your beloved steelers?

  6. cbatchel says: Aug 12, 2010 9:31 PM

  7. Jaydub says: Aug 12, 2010 9:32 PM

    he’s still a RAPIST!!!!!!!!

    you know what they say its not rape if its in another zip code

  11. Poo Flinging Monkey says: Aug 12, 2010 9:35 PM

    This was done at the request of the Findlay Chamber of Commerce, as well at their Shelter for Battered and Abused Women.

  12. CanadianVikingFan says: Aug 12, 2010 9:37 PM

    The other teams players will have alot of fun at Ben’s expense come gameday.

  13. dyhard says: Aug 12, 2010 9:38 PM

    does cory rawson have any teens there. he can change his home town to anything. he will allways be the rapist burger

  14. JimmySmith says: Aug 12, 2010 9:39 PM

    Did you ever stop to consider that the citizens of Findlay, Ohio made the request on behalf of their own good name?
    How ironic that the name of the town is a two syllable word, Find Lay and that is just what Ben was doing when he was walking around the bar with Little Ben hanging out of his pants.
    Steeler fans must be so proud.

  15. red13 says: Aug 12, 2010 9:40 PM

    What a putz. Yeah, he’s a changed man, whatever…

  16. PittsburghPope says: Aug 12, 2010 9:40 PM

    Rawson, Ohio and Mount Cory, Ohio are two suburbs of Findlay . . . dumbass.

  17. PittsburghSteelerz says: Aug 12, 2010 9:42 PM

    Bizarre. Why would you draw ANY attention to yourself right now?

  18. smo05d says: Aug 12, 2010 9:42 PM

    who cares?!?!?!?!?

  19. Blackn'Gold says: Aug 12, 2010 9:43 PM

    I don’t blame Ben. His address aught to read, MARS North Pole. Privacy is something he will have to create for himself. If I was in his position I wouldn’t list a home address. It’s no one’s business. I would request the Steelers organization to not make it public knowledge. And I wouldn’t talk to the press about anything. His job is to keep his nose clean and beat the crap out of the rest of the league. If he keeps doing good things then his life will find him.
    GO STEELERS!

  20. megabeast37215 says: Aug 12, 2010 9:46 PM

    Must not be any women worth raping in Findlay.

  21. oyoy84 says: Aug 12, 2010 9:47 PM

    Even his own hometown doesn’t like this guy. Which makes Steeler fans that still support him look even more pathetic.

  22. PaulCarte says: Aug 12, 2010 9:48 PM

    Big Ben is such a silly goose. Nothing but Tomfoolery here. He will be back with stern moxy to pirate the Stillers to the promise land in Dallas come January

  23. hard left media says: Aug 12, 2010 9:48 PM

    Everyone would be him in a split second if given the chance.

  24. numberfour says: Aug 12, 2010 9:50 PM

    old find lay is always a joke
    made same joke on way back from ole kaintuck several weeks ago
    would have been much funnier if we knew rapeandbugger was from there too
    “now kids go play with yer uncle ben…”

  25. Laxer37 says: Aug 12, 2010 9:51 PM

    He also took a lot of heat from people in Oxford, Ohio – home of Miami University where he went to school.
    It will be interesting if he mentions his alma mater anymore.

  26. meatball13 says: Aug 12, 2010 9:51 PM

    The townsfolk of Findlay would like to thank Mr.Douchelisberger for disassociating himself from their city!!

  27. HandsofSweed says: Aug 12, 2010 9:55 PM

    Maybe the guy has realized that the ego and sense of invincibility that led him to where he is now ACTUALLY BEGAN while he was a top-flight athlete at Findlay High.
    Maybe he is doing this for himself as yet another reminder of who he used to be and who he desperately needs to be again. Who knows? Not any of you turds. (Hell, not me either, for that matter).
    And why does everyone think Florio and Co. have favorite teams and teams they hate? They don’t give a squirt of stale piss either way about ANY team. They do care very much about any story, spun any way, that creates a scandalous buzz. They don’t like the Steelers and they don’t hate the Jags. They just like stirring up shit that gets advertising dollars as an end result of the hit counts they get.

  28. roo2452 says: Aug 12, 2010 9:58 PM

    Florio…did you really just write this? This may be the lamest post yet. Cmon..you are way better than that

  29. bodhizuffa says: Aug 12, 2010 10:01 PM

    I think it’s a nice gesture in theory. He’s trying to protect his hometown, etc, from media attention; like he’s trying to divorce himself from his roots until he rehabs himself and his image. I would have gone the other way, but I’m an engineer, no a public relations guy.

  30. BlitzDorsey says: Aug 12, 2010 10:03 PM

    Just when you think Rapistberger couldn’t be more of a douche, he tries to “delete” his hometown because people there are honest about him being a complete asshat.
    “She Said No! She Said No!” That’s pretty good Florio. I will have to start that chant myself when the Steelers come to the ‘Nati this year.

    Cory-Rawston re-incorporated for a day in order to file a restraining order against Roethlisberger’s use of their name.

  35. BigDog77 says: Aug 12, 2010 10:39 PM

    Florio!!! YOU ARE A COMPLETE IDIOT!!!! You actually get paid to talk about NOTHING!!! I want you to talk about Ben when He lights up this season and has His Best Year yet. BUT NO YOU WILL LET ONE OF YOUR REAL WRITTERS WRITE ABOUT IT, and you’ll be in the corner sucking your thumb like the B_TCH YOU ARE!!!!

  36. fbcjim says: Aug 12, 2010 10:42 PM

    “……it’s hard to believe that Roethlisberger truly has learned from his “mistakes.”
    Good point Mr. Florio. That’s exactly how I see it. Furthermore, I fear it’s all an act, damage control, spin. I actually hope that’s not so, but it is so, right? He could have a mental disorder. Some would simply call that being a world class asshole rather than just being f***** in the head.

  40. roli1967 says: Aug 12, 2010 10:52 PM

    I guess Worthlessburger thinks he can whip his wiener out more freely in Corey Rawson, Ohio.

  41. khall says: Aug 12, 2010 10:55 PM

    “It also shows that he’s pretty damn thin-skinned”
    Really Florio, it does? Because gosh, no one has been trashing this guy but a few souls from Findlay, right?
    He’s gotten such a pass from the media for events that he wasn’t charged with!
    Do you write this stuff with a big stupid smirk on your face?

    First off, no one knows what she said. She developed a conscience when she became conscious. Chants “She just said no”? Maybe they will? It may backfire for the host team. What if it only makes the Steelers focus on playing harder? I wonder what they will be saying at the Superbowl?
    It’s good to be hated.
    GO STEELERS!

  44. TylerRDunn says: Aug 12, 2010 11:03 PM

    Hey guys, here’s a little hint on how PFT works – they dig for stories that have no relevance. Know why? Because the volume of posts makes podunks like all of you come read. Why come here instead of a reputable site? Because reputable sites do not write garbage stories that don’t pertain to football whatsoever. Oh, the writing is a heck of a lot better too. The reason PFT has any popularity is due to the fact that they put several stories up a day while other sources only do a few. The quality suffers greatly, but most people in this world are extremely unintelligent anyway – they’ll read anything. Even written by writers and “reporters” like the ones on this “news” site. Amateur hour. “Boom.” “Roasted.”

    By the way, he can change his “hometown” all he wants; he’s still a degenerate, pecker-assaulting moron, wherever he’s from.
    How much you wanna bet that “Deb” runs right down to the local tattoo parlor and has “Corey” and “Rawson” inked on her two a$$ cheeks?

    Good job Florio! Keep up the good work. KEEP POUNDING Ben the deviant Steeler. Thx again, Ben for putting our team in a bad light AGAIN. This guy is priceless. I am a True Steeler fan and I do not support this THUG

    No, they aren’t suburbs of Findlay, dumbass. They are two completely different villages outside of the city limits.

  50. 46&2 says: Aug 12, 2010 11:33 PM

    seriously who the f*ck cares? how bored are you to even write this post?
    i realise you are probably just trying to generate hits from the haters on your site who want to come here and talk crap about roethlisberger – i mean you could write, michael vick reportedly took a whizz at 8:30, and youd get a hundred comments about stuff that has nothing to do with the bathroom – but seriously this is nitpicking on a really deep level

  51. NarDawg says: Aug 12, 2010 11:33 PM

    All of you Bugles, Clowns and the cravens..Look out when he comes back! He is focused and sharp! Better than Flacco (as he showed tonight) and way better than Palmer. The D may kill us but the O has NEVER left us down

  53. Stone says: Aug 12, 2010 11:39 PM

    @bodhizuffa
    Bingo.
    All the negative comments here don’t jive with the perception thus far that he has turned a new leaf and is a different person in training camp this year. I think this situation may change him the way the Colorado incident changed Kobe Bryant. Rapistberger is going to rededicate himself to his craft in order to win back the respect of his teammates and the cities he is associated with. Its really his only choice at this point.

  54. Antoine from Charlotte says: Aug 12, 2010 11:41 PM

    Overall Florio I think it’s sad that you’re beating Ben every chance you get. Sure he’s represented himself poorly, but their are a lot of other guys who have done worse. Thin skin or is it just pride. I think we’d all be guilty of having thin skin if the people once fans of yours turned on you. Florio you’re better than this.

  55. FumbleNuts says: Aug 12, 2010 11:48 PM

    @TylerRDunn
    The reason we come here is because unlike the boring politically correct mainstream sports sites this place puts up anything pertinent without the pussy restrictions. And we don’t need a dumbass like you feeding us your halfass spin because you don’t like Ben getting what’s coming to him.

  58. saintez says: Aug 13, 2010 12:07 AM

    What a moron.

  59. stanjam says: Aug 13, 2010 12:16 AM

    Wow. Ben is upset because his hometown papers criticized him? Why did they do that Ben? Maybe because you brought SHAME on your hometown? You ever think of that? You divorced yourself of your hometown because you didn’t like what they had to say, but they can not divorce you, can they? They either have to put up with the way you bring disgrace upon them, or say something about it to try and show that the town is still better than your behavior.
    You say you have changed, but it looks to me like you are running away rather than trying to make things better, and dealing with your problems. One of your problems is how your hometown sees you. It obviously matters to you, or you wouldn’t have moved to a fictitious home town. Running away from a problem does not indicate change. It indicates someone who is saying he has changed, and is hoping like you know what that no one notices. Thing is, you have a problem, and if you haven’t truly changed, then that problem will once again show its ugly head.
    Change. True change in someone who has a problem like Ben’s, takes time. A lot of time. I doubt he has truly changed in the small amount of time he has had. One does not just sudden;y “see the light” and change behavior that has been a central part of his personality. That only happens in the movies. He may think he has changed, and genuinely believe it, that is common. It takes time and people willing to make you face the fact that you have not changed when you think you have. Ben is surrounded by people who kiss up to him stating he HAS changed, either because they want to stay on his good side, or because they want his time off the field limited. That doesn’t bode well for someone trying to change. Just look at Vick if you want an example.

  60. PAJoe says: Aug 13, 2010 12:16 AM

    If he wants to protect his “hometown” or whatever rock he crawled out from, why doesn’t he try being a “man”?? Love the Steelers, but won’t root for the dirtbag….

    Look out? For what? Ben is a SEVEN year vet. WHO all of a sudden lights up the league in their SEVENTH season? Ben is what he is, AVERAGE. Without a good Defense he is a 9-7 qb. THE OFFENSE NEVER LETS US DOWN? You are kidding right? How bout a offense that was TWENTY THIRD in the red zone last season? How about a offense that NEVER blows an opponent out. When has that great offense scored 40 points in the Roethlisberger era? 35? 30? NOT OFTEN is the answer. Our offense is held back due to a slow to process the information, I need 10 seconds to find an open man Qb. Funny how Plaxico left and became a star with a KNOWLEDGEABLE qb. Tone will too in NY. Mike Wallace has to stop and fair catch ben underthrown passes to him. Ben is average at best. Way more negatives than positives. NO TEAM IN THE NFL IS AFRAID OF BEN ROETHLISBERGER (WIVES ARE) .The only thing that causes fear is our DEFENSE. Remember that homer.

    flpunx….as someone from Ohio, I agree. Findlay is where you end up when you got lost trying to get to Toledo or Bowling Green. That being said, if I was a citizen of Findlay, I wouldn’t want any association with him either. Just find it humorous that Steelers’ fans think he is going to have a great year when he comes back. Dude, Pittburgh’s offensive line is old, slow, and banged up already. All of the Pittsburgh QB’s will be running for their lives in the pocket. Mike Tomlin is a good coach, but he is dumb for having Bruce Arians on his staff. Arians is the biggest reason Pittsburgh abandoned their power running game…..now running 5 WR sets, just doesn’t make any sense to me.

    What a pig. Get thrown out of your own home town. He is so stupid he don’t know when to keep his mouth shut. The only thing he has changed is his weight.
    I would love to hear what his team mates have to say to him in person. We all know what they say in public. They have to kiss butt. Any one who has a daughter, wife, mother, sister or any women who they love can not cheer this pig on.

    Contrary to what you might think, not everyone is willing to trade their morals, ethics, and integrity for money and fame.
    If my only two choices were being Ben Roethlisberger, or swallowing the business end of a revolver, I’d choose the latter.
    Don’t assume that because Roethlisberger is a douche, and apparently you’re a douche, that that somehow equates into everyone being a douche.

  75. TexasMadDog says: Aug 13, 2010 7:15 AM

    Been out of touch; did someone say that Ben Roethlisberger tried to rape a young pitbull in a small restroom down south.

  76. Cup says: Aug 13, 2010 7:40 AM

    Ohhhhh my, what’s next. “Ben changes relationship status on Facebook.”? Good grief…. Too bad we can’t come up with a good counter chant for that “She said no” stuff, but “She was drunk and felt stupid for being a whore, then saw dollar signs so went for money, but Ben was never charged so civil court will probably throw it out.” doesn’t really go well in a chat :\.
    What the hell, the guy had common sense issues. He banged the wrong chick in the bathroom! He did not rape her. What is all of the guilty until proven innocent sh!t on here!
    Fine we will play that game…. Mike Vick killed the dogs himself, Donte Stallworth actually was just playing real life GTA IV, Ray Lewis put a hit on the guy outside of the club and Jeff Garcia is moving in with his new boyfriend, Kordell Stewart next week. :) If we are going to play innocent until guilty, that is my stance and I say all Steeler fans that believe in our QBs innocence should post these guilty remarks about any player that was ever accused of anything.

  77. FarmerMonkey says: Aug 13, 2010 7:48 AM

    Agree with the poster who thinks this was foolish timing. I don’t know who his agents/handlers are, but they should all be fired. Stay on message with football, football, football–learning his lesson and becoming more dedicated to film study, training programs, etc. People respect hard work and like comeback stories about atonement, etc.
    This just comes off as pettiness at the worst possible time…regardless of the fact that he gave an interview to a Findlay, OH newspaper explaining the decision, and stating that he still had many friends from his old town/church.

A writer at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette had a completely opposite opinion on this, so why didn’t PFT mention that? Oh sorry, we all know why, since PFT is just a rag that wants hits to its web site. You people need to get a life, but I realize that is likely impossible for most of you. Meanwhile, PFT is turning into a complete joke.
    Guess what, Ben will be back at QB 10/17/10 and will begin what will be his greatest overall year ever. Mark my words.
    GO STEELERS!! GO BEN!!

    Put up a Ben post on ANY topic and you get 80 comments or more – and this qualifies as both silly and stupid – WHO CARES what his hometown was or is…
    Very slow news day – or the Revis news blackout is taking hold – or maybe both….

    Consensual oral sex is not rape. Remember she said yes before she said no.

    Um, don’t think he’ll get booed at home games. If training camp is any indication, he’ll be cheered. Apparently enough time has passed and Steelers fans have forgiven him…at least until he loses a few games.
    As for records, I think Ben has garnered more comments on PFT than all other players combined. You guys claim to hate him but you sure love to talk about him.

    Really Florio?

    “Parts Unknown” would’ve been a better choice. Given that it’s unknown exactly what he did with his parts.
    I would pick “Truth or Consequences” but since we’ll never know the real truth or appropriate consequences should be…
    Maybe he could claim to be a Kennedy or hail from “Badstreet USA”…..

    There goes Florio again. Apparently, being head of the Anti-Ben fan club also means manufacturing pointless article to justify the existence of said fan club. Does he actually get paid for this?

    As the great Al Gore said…”A leopard can’t change it’s stripes.” Ben is a slug! A stupid immature slug!
    Didn’t Al Gore just get accused of the same thing? Another idiot that should not be posting here…..

    @steelersmichele
    Sadly the record is still Favre’s, but point well taken. This article, like many of Florio’s on slow days, is based on 100% speculation.
    Anybody from the area could tell you that Findley is Corey Rawson. It is like changing San Francisco to south San Francisco.
    Btw if Ben wants to come play in San Francisco, I can assure you most 49er fans will not be cheering anything negative.

  95. Soccer Chick says: Aug 13, 2010 7:28 PM

    I am a student of Cory-Rawson High School. Yes, it is Spelled Cory-Rawson, not Corey-Rawson. Just so everyone knows and people stop claiming they know where we are located, Cory-Rawson is a small rural School district made up of three small villages: Jenera, Mt.Cory, and Rawson. We are not subarbs of findlay! We are not a big school, but yes we are a school.

    Good move by Ben. It’s probably best for anyone to disassociate themselves from that podunk little town filled with retarded Browns fans.

    People, it is Ohio! How can this place be relevant?
    Everyone who lives there wants to leave for great places like Chicago, Minneapolis and Shitzburgh….

  99. babarldy says: Aug 16, 2010 10:08 AM

    It saddens me to hear Big Ben say that he is not from Findlay. The people here do care about and support him. Yes, he messed up big time, but does he have to deny the people who helped raise him?
    I think that it is from guilt and anger that he is lashing out on us, knowing that we are disappointed in him. But as any child/adult makes a mistake, they have to face the consequences. You still have family in Findlay Ben.
    Yes, Findlay has suburbs. We are not that small of a town.

  100. Deb says: Aug 16, 2010 7:18 PM

    @babarldy …
    Omigosh … truly nauseating. Roethlisberger said NOTHING about Findlay. Florio took an insignificant change to a player bio in the team media guide and ran with it to generate comments. But I’m sure #7 is touched to know you’ve psychoanalyzed him and decided he’s lashing out because you’re disappointed … and that somehow living in the same town with him means you helped raise him. Good grief.

    Ya babardly you should know better than to say anything negative about Ben….Good grief……
