James Harrison, Ben Roethlisberger yuk it up at camp

281636_252689828092297_175590849135529_1015164_7421734_n

A week after Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger walked down the aisle with his bride, Roethlisberger and teammate James Harrison walked hand-in-hand, laughing, at training camp.

Harrison posted a photo of the moment on his Facebook page, and he linked to it on his Twitter page.

Earlier this month, Men’s Journal published an interview in which Harrison called out Roethlisberger for his performance in the Steelers’ loss to the Packers in the Super Bowl.  “Hey, at least throw a pick on their side of the field instead of asking the D to bail you out again,” Harrison said.  “Or hand the ball off and stop trying to act like Peyton Manning.  You ain’t that and you know it, man; you just get paid like he does.”

Harrison reportedly reached out to Roethlisberger and claimed that his words were twisted, a theme that hasn’t really surfaced in Harrison’s subsequent apologies.  But Roethlisberger doesn’t seem to be upset.  Or if he is, he’s not showing it.

    Maybe Ben raped him in the bathroom.

    They then were seen entering a bathroom stall together.

    Nice to see Harrison and the white devil getting along so well.

  5. rectumnearlykilledem says: Jul 31, 2011 12:09 AM

    Harrison said he was willing to urinate on Ben if he was on fire. Quite a gentleman.

  7. plundergrunge says: Jul 31, 2011 12:10 AM

    I was hoping they “threw down” at practice.

    Yuk it up must also mean “being retarded” I guess.

    Funny stuff, though.

    You mean Interviewgate isn’t going to turn into a massive distraction that sends the Steelers’ season into a dramatic death spiral? You could cut the disappointment with a knife.

  13. rambo08 says: Jul 31, 2011 12:32 AM

    I wonder if Ben had his bodyguard block the door to the stall this time?

  15. kyle1133 says: Jul 31, 2011 12:47 AM

    Ben couldn’t have raped him. No one says “No” to Ben Roethlisberger.

    In what bizarro world does PFT inhabit?

    I’ve had the most benign of comments censored and you put “maybe Ben raped him in the bathroom” as the lead post?

    What the f*ck is this…3rd grade?

    you haters are so original w/ the bathroom jokes. especially you myvickinabox. I’d say brutally killing dogs is a lot worse than having sex with some sorority girl, who clearly wanted it as she begged to see ben the next day. you ppl are so dumb and know nothing about the case. you just read headlines

  21. stairwayto7 says: Jul 31, 2011 1:30 AM

    Harrison has longest TD IN SUPER BOWL HISTORY! Not Manning, Brady, Dieon, Failman or Montana can say that! He can do whatever he wants! Put thumbs down on this and shows your no nothing about football!

  26. macjacmccoy says: Jul 31, 2011 2:54 AM

    Im shocked Im about to say this but…. its actually a good decision and good leadership on Bens part to act like its not bothering even if it is. Dwelling and pouting about it or going off on Harrison on wont fix the situation or make your team any better. So the best thing to do is to push what ever feelings you have about it deep down inside until it forms a little knot in your stomach like the one the entire Eagles front office apparently has and keep it their until the right time comes to unleash it.

    It wont be long only about 2 years when Harrison’s contract is over and hes on his way out and I hope when that day comes Ben unleashes and points out all the things Harrison did to cause them to lose the superbowl and not make it back to one since.

    Until then everything should seem Honky Doory. Even if it isnt.

  27. gimmeabruschi says: Jul 31, 2011 3:09 AM

    This is a great shock.

    Who would have ever expected Steeler brass to demand Harrison execute damage control for his brain damaged rantings?

    Harrison really used the “my words were taken out of context” excuse? Give me a break, what a crock of $hit. I suppose next he’ll say his twitter account was hacked. I’d buy that he’s bipolar before I believe his words were taken out of context.

  30. antibenapalooza says: Jul 31, 2011 7:22 AM

    How does someone accused of rape get the accuser to eventually refuse to cooperate with the DA, you might ask? Well, one way is for your attorney to approach her attorney with an unsolicited offer of money (not so much as to imply your guilt and not so little as to be unenticing). This has to be done VERY carefully while a criminal investigation is still ongoing, however, because the act can be considered obstruction of justice. It helps tremendously, too, when the accuser’s parents (maybe the mother only) strongly influences the accuser to accept the offer arguing the damage to the accuser’s reputation during a trial (criminal and/or civil) isn’t worth it. Hmmmmm

    Last season it was Bens suspension that was going to kill the Steelers season . This year its all the off the field problems with Hines , Rashard and James . Every year the media and teams other fans try to say its the end of the Steelers as a successful good team . And every year they just keep moving . You can crack all the rape jokes you want . It doesnt matter to the players not one bit . Doesnt bother me as a STeelers fan either . Cause we dont effect the outcomes of the games . None of us do . You are just trying to piss off the fans . Nothing is better than keep winning games and send all the hater fans teams home while we continue to win and go to Superbowls . Thats the best medicine as a Steelers fan . Keep it up cause it makes winning even more sweeter .

    Sounds like you have some personal experience at doing something like that. Was that your way of confessing to something that you were too ashamed to do to your family? Probably.

    Meanwhile, Ben was not charged, the girl was DTF, and everyone seems to be very upset that the Steelers don’t have the issues that some morons hoped they would and are on their way to another Super Bowl title.

    GO STEELERS!!!

  40. antibenapalooza says: Jul 31, 2011 11:00 AM

    holeinone09,

    The DTF button was created and put on her upon arrival by another sorority sister holding a birthday party before they all went out to the local college bars later than evening to continue the birthday celebration. I agree that she should have taken it off after the party, but that does not excuse what happened to her.

    By the way, “DTF” surprised her friends with a new car soon after the DA announced he was not going to pursue charges.

    Psychologists say many people refuse to accept anything new that conflicts with their current beliefs. A lot of people in Western PA believed he was and still believe he is a football god (small g). I did but now I don’t.

    As for another Super Bowl title, now I personally don’t count the last two.

  41. holeinone09 says: Jul 31, 2011 11:11 AM

    antibenapalooza, you spout a lot of statements with no basis, just your own jealous innuendo. And you don’t know “what happened to her” since you weren’t there. You also show your pure childishness and lack of manhood by saying you don’t count the last 2 Super Bowls. The NFL counts them. Psychologists say many people refuse to accept anything new that conflicts with their current beliefs. What you count, or what you ‘state’, really doesn’t matter? Now spam on and have a nice day.

    GO STEELERS!!

    @holeinone09 …

    Thanks for taking on this guy. The DA addressed the issue of a payoff, but he wouldn’t know that because he’s never researched the case. The medical exam showed the only thing she alleged–vaginal intercourse–did not happen. That is why she chose to withdraw her cooperation. But as the DA said, he had no case with or without her and saw no evidence anyone had paid her not to participate. Since the DA was not going to press charges, there would have been no reason to pay her. The only thing Ben could have gained would have been for her to issue a retraction of the accusation and she refused to do that. Instead she went with “That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.”

    But shear bizarre coincidence, because of my brother’s legal connections, we have a close friend who worked the investigation and I’m confident that any investigator or prosecutor on that case would say they believed the sorority sisters invented the accusation. That’s why the DA said in his press conference that he hoped they’d learned their lesson. He’s a highly respected and seasoned prosecutor–that’s not something he would have said if he believed a rapist were getting away for lack of evidence. He also said Ben needed to grow up, which is true. He was acting like a big idiot–but that’s a far cry from being a rapist. And as someone who’s lived through that, I get tired of fools like antibenapalooza using it to have fun on the football blogs.

    I’m also tired of his pretenses at being a Steelers fan. Even Goodell, in his suspension letter, said NFL Security found nothing to contradict the investigative findings. Instead of being relieved that his QB is not a sexual predator, he wants to keep harassing Steelers fans about a dead issue–and now he’s disparaging our championships as well. Pity they won’t ban people just for being lying scoundrels. He’s no more a Steelers fan than Bart Scott.

    I’ll assume you’re a Pats fan. Although the subject pales by comparison in seriousness, most people making wisecracks about New England filming other teams have no idea that kind of filming was previously allowed by the NFL and had only recently been discontinued. So Belichick didn’t do anything everyone else wasn’t allowed to do–he just kept doing it after being asked to stop and it’s been blown out of all proportion.

    Fact-checking … it’s a beautiful thing.

    What we know in Georgia is the medical exam showed she didn’t have intercourse that evening, so the vaginal rape she alleged never happened. What we know in Nevada is the woman had a one-night stand with Ben then texted friends the next day saying couldn’t wait to see him again. A year later she sued for $3 million. Cops in both jurisdictions have said neither case will be pursued further.

    So, yeah, everyone who’s playing with a full deck knows.

  49. rectumnearlykilledem says: Jul 31, 2011 11:32 PM

    It’s so funny watching the Steeler fans melting down, trying to defend their QB when everyone knows he raped at least one woman. He’s an embarrassment to the NFL, and that’s saying something. I suppose Hines Ward wasn’t really drunk and James Harrison didn’t use a gay slur to describe the commissioner. Steeler fans are so gullible and naive…wake up kids.

  50. steelcurtainn says: Aug 1, 2011 1:12 AM

    “When everyone knows he raped at least one woman”.

    Who’s everyone? Wheres Proof? Wheres was the conviction? Why didnt the one woman who was DTF want to press charges?

    Trust me no steeler fans are melting down about defending Ben. Sounds like your just another steeler hater. What else is new.

  51. rectumnearlykilledem says: Aug 1, 2011 12:07 PM

    Sorry kiddo, truth hurts.

  52. Deb says: Aug 1, 2011 2:11 PM

    @rectum …

    Your vulgar name says a lot about your character. You comment says a lot about your sense of perspective. Posting case facts in a rational manner isn’t melting down. As a one-time rape victim, I persistently counter the misinformation in these stories because it’s unfair to real victims to sit silently as false accusers receive public sympathy. They waste taxpayer money, damage the credibility of real victims, and make it harder to prosecute real predators. Those are my primary concerns here … not that I’d expect you to understand.

    As for Ben, I’ve repeatedly called him a jackass for his raunchy behavior. He’s been an immature egomaniac, and yes, his behavior has reflected badly on the team. That’s why I supported his suspension. So I don’t get how that could be considered blindly defending him. But I’ve gone over all the legal documentation in both cases, including downloading court filings that are no longer available to the public. The evidence shows clearly that no rapes occurred. You simply want him to be guilty because you don’t like the Steelers. That is infantile.

    As for Hines, he failed a field sobriety test and blew .128 on a Breathalyzer. I’ve condemned him for driving in that condition, now the law will take its course.

    I was one of the first to condemn James for the totality of his bad behavior in the article and called for the Steelers to sit him for the opening game. Instead, they decided to handle it with stern lectures.

    I like James, but he let his temper get the best of him and behaved unprofessionally with conduct detrimental to the team. The use of the gay slur was wrong, although he has apologized to the gay community. I don’t believe he was seriously questioning the Commissioner’s sexual orientation but was lashing out with a vulgar slang term. Now that he’s apologized, the only thing to do is move on. What would you suggest? A public flogging?

    I can’t speak for others, but I’m not naive about the failings of the men who work for the Steelers, nor do I pretend, like you, that those who work for other teams are evil. I don’t call Ray Lewis a murderer or the Patriots cheaters. Don’t judge everyone by your own junior high standards.

    _______________________________

    Sorry Deb, your facts seem a bit off.

    The fact is upon medical examination of the lady in Georgia the report stated “superficial laceration and bruising and slight bleeding in the genital area”, but could not say if trauma or sexual assault was the cause.”. Semen were not found but that doesn’t mean there was no penetration. Male DNA was found but in insufficient amounts to establish an assault.

    The bottom line is that nobody said it didn’t occur, they just didn’t have “enough” evidence to pursue a criminal indictment.

    So, your statement that “she didn’t have intercourse that evening” is incorrect. That has not been proven and the evidence suggests that she did.

    My point would be that any fair minded person would admit something wrong happened that night in Georgia and Ben perpetrated that wrong.

    To say nothing happened just because there was insufficient evidence to pursue a criminal case is intellectually dishonest in my view.

    It is water under the bridge. My concern at this point is what he is doing to reform from such entanglements. It seems he is walking a straighter road and that is a good thing. I am pulling for him to be a better person and wish him well in that endeavor.

    As far as the Vegas case it remains unresolved and claiming certain e-mails or accusation in either direction as valid are premature.

    But the fact he has been involved in two such accusations causes one to believe he has comported himself in an at least unsavory way and that needs to stop and it appears it has. He didn’t get suspended for no reason.

    My original statement is only to say that anyone claiming he has been proven to have done no wrong is being overly generous by any measure of decency and common sense regarding what we do know.

    As far as your statements regarding spygate I can agree. BB was a bonehead for continuing the practice after the memo was issued forbidding it. He deserved his punishment if not more, yet I feel the team did not deserve to be punished for his errors.

    ____________________________

    We do not know if you or I have raped anybody.

    But then I have not been accused of such an act (and I’ll assume neither have you). So it would make no sense that anybody would speculate that I had.

    Neither have I had an accuser that was examined and found to have “superficial laceration and bruising and slight bleeding in the genital area”.

    So your point is invalid. To say Ben did nothing because there wasn’t enough evidence to indict is disingenuous.

    As far as our upcoming rendezvous with the yellow and black, we will rip out their living guts and grease our tank treads with them. heh heh

    We own you guys.

    (though you may win since our D has been like the Keystone Cops on 3rd down, but Brady’s 104 PR with 12TD 3INT against the Steeler’s vaunted D bodes well for us)
