    Ben Roethlisberger sued for rape

    Sounds shady to me. If he raped her this should be a criminal, not civil case.

    http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/32027678/ns/sports-nfl/

    A woman has filed a lawsuit accusing Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of raping her last summer in his penthouse hotel room at a casino in Lake Tahoe during a celebrity golf tournament.

    Sounds like a shakedown.

    ESPN not reporting this story for some reason.

    The perils of being young, rich and successful.

    I swear they need to get women to sign a statement presented by a lawyer before these guys have any contact with them or this stuff is bound to happen.

    Very strange indeed.

    Could it have to do with Shaq's new reality show on ABC, whose first guest is none other than........you guessed it. Big Ben.

    I read a little about it, and she claimed that she tried indicating a lack of consent, but he allegedly threw her onto the bed and ... well.

    I don't know if it's that part or the part about him allegedly kicking her out afterward. I have no idea who's telling the truth here.

    Well, Foxsports and cnnsi both have it on their front pages. ESPN is just choosing to totally ignore it.

    Re: Ben Roethlisberger sued for rape

    I think it's a shakedown. I know most rapes go un-reported by women, but if she's brave enough to bring charges, something tells me she should want more than just money from the guy. If someone raped my daughter I'd be happier seeing the guy fry than making $400,000 off of him.

    As for the ESPN not reporting thing, that's just unacceptable. They have their favorites (Red Sox, Patriots, Steelers, Cowboys) and protect them to no end.

    Speaking of which, why haven't they signed Vick yet?

    If this was David Garrard or Donovan McNabb would this story be gone already or this thread only have 14 posts?

    Good question, but I think you can ask the same question about what would have happened if she had gone to the police or if there was a criminal complaint.

    There has never been a more appropriate post for a :rolleyes smiley. Why even bring this up? What is the point of injecting race into this topic? Save it for PS

    That's true. Good point. By just filing a civil suit this screams cash grab and not actual crime.

    I don't even know what to say to this but perhaps the real reason this story is gone already and this thread had only 14 posts is because this whole thing is a crock.

    Re: Ben Roethlisberger sued for rape

    yeah, i put something in the Steelers thread. There have been a few articles about and this is a classic case of unreturned love after the first encounter. Even the chicks friends have cut her off and see this as having no merit.
