Ben Roethlisberger dumped as beef jerky spokesperson

big-ben-roethlisberger.jpgBeef jerky has long been synonymous with integrity. That's just a fact. So it should come as no surprise that a Pittsburgh meat-making enterprise has dumped Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger as its spokesman.

PLB Sports president Ty Ballou says Roethlisberger is "falling short" of the company's standards after a Georgia prosecutor announced Monday he will not prosecute the quarterback over sexual assault allegations.
Chew on that for a bit.

The company said that the facts presented at the prosecutor's Monday news conference led to its decision.

The fine people at PLB also offer breakfast cereal endorsed by Steelers receiver Hines Ward and Pittsburgh Penguins forward Max Talbot.

Who will come forward and be the next face of Pittsburgh-area dehydrated meat? A city waits with salivating mouths.

I have a good friend from school who is from Pitt. He goes to some of the same watering holes as Ben, and told me point blank to my my face that Ben is an obnoxious drinker. When he's wasted he says anything that comes to his head to women. A lot of the times they are so offended that they don't even care that he's a star.
The First woman said that all Ben had to do was donate to womens abuse and tell the truth about what he did. She was not just looking for money and look how people are doing her. It is hard enough for these women to come forward. They shouldn't having to be put through this by the media and bloggers. The second girl has dropped out of school. That poor innocent “southern bell”…. Ben has turned her life upside down and torn it apart. He reminds me of O.J. Simpson!!!
I think a crime was still comitted here though. The girl and her friends were in the VIP area doing shots with Ben and his friends. The girl is underage, and her friends may have been underage. Ben, his crew, and the bar could all get into serious trouble for providing alcohol to these girls. I know it’s a college bar and everything, but most places I know around here have been getting pretty strict about serving underage people.

This loser should be traded ASAP before he does any more damage. He is now hated in Pittsburgh.
