PongMonkey40, a self-proclaimed legal "expert" who "knows about this stuff" and has therefore posted a lot on Yahoo's Ben Roethlisberger story pages, wrote today that the quarterback "should have been charged something is fishy here."
The message board poster, who frequently refers to Roethlisberger as "Rapelisberger" and the Steelers as the "Jailers" and Pittsburgh as "Crimesburgh" and the Monongahela River as the "Monongarrested River," has said that the evidence was "overwhelming" against Roethlisberger and that the quarterback would be easily convicted for the crime and sentenced to "40 years to life in federal prison."
But now that the Milledgeville, Georgia, investigation is over without any charges, PongMonkey40 is sure there is a cover up.
"Did you see that DA's tie? That looked pretty nice!!!! I bet RAPESALOTBURGER bought that for him!!!" he posted after the DA announced his decision.
After another poster responded to his post with: "That's ridiculous. The DA isn't going to drop the case for a nice tie," PongMonkey40 laid into him: "Just another JAILERS fan who is ok with RAPE if it gets them a few wins!!! Disgusting!!!"
That post was followed by a racist post, a homophobic post and then a spam post for a erectile dysfunction website, but no response from the "JAILERS fan" that PongMonkey40 addressed.
"Shut you up, didn't I?" PongMonkey40 posted. "Just like my dick in your girlfriend's mouth."
PongMonkey40 then went over to the Washington Wizards team page where, on the preview page for the team's game against the Knicks, posted: "How's it going Jailzards fans? Gilbert Gunrenas should be in JAIL! You don't know the FACTS OF THE CASE!!! I DO!!!!!"
Hey, Americans are the ones who don't pay attention to soccer. Stop stealing our act! (VIDEO)
Sports Illustrated is one of the most respected brands in magazine publishing. But that doesn't mean they get everything right.
Here are some old SI covers that could have used other headlines.
The run to the Final Four by the Butler Bulldogs has rekindled interest in the 1986 sports classic "Hoosiers", the movie based on the improbable run to the 1954 Indiana state championship by tiny Milan High School. Not only is Butler a similar underdog, but their home arena is the same gym that was used to shoot the championship game in the movie.
Now that we're more than 50 years removed from "Hoosiers", let's see what became of all the main characters.
Upsets dominated the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament. But the true result was much more grave than some dashed title hopes, as it is now being reported that Adam Randolph, a college basketball researcher and bracketologist for CBS Sports, sadly took his own life Sunday by jumping from a 10th story window of the CBS Building in Manhattan.
Like many bracketologists, Randolph invested heavily in highly seeded teams and chose top-ranked Kansas to win the championship.In a tournament that still includes an 11-seed, a 12-seed Ivy League school and Northern Iowa, a school that many have never heard of, several bracket experts have seen their reputations take a hit. According to sources, Randolph seemed very upset following the Jayhawks' loss to Northern Iowa, saying "My brackets are totally fked," and "There's no way I can win now. It's all over. I have nothing."
The timeline of events that led to the tragedy are still coming together. But those who saw Randolph in the hours before his fateful leap say he looked haggard and distressed. At 6:41 p.m. Sunday night, the doorman to the CBS Building went outside after hearing a loud thud, only to discover Randolph's body. The doorman quickly informed Randolph's family, who rushed to the spot as soon as the extremely close Texas A&M-Purdue game was over.
Police found a note in his pocket which said that he committed suicide because he unable to live with his "stupid" tournament decisions, including picking Notre Dame to win their first-round game and putting No. 2 seed Villanova, who had been slumping late in the season, in the Final Four.He was found dressed in his favorite Kansas home jersey and was holding a large foam finger and a framed copy of his bracket from 2009, when he had correctly picked North Carolina to win the title. He signed his note with the phrase, "This is not awesome, baby."
Randolph's parents say they are absolutely devastated.
"How does something like this happen?" asked his father, Michael Randolph, a clinical psychologist in Pennsylvania. "Kansas was supposed to be the best team in the tournament."
According Fox Sports NFL Insider JayGlazer, there is now a “75-80 percent chance” that his wife is currently having relations behind closed doors with multiple partners other than himself.
“I texted her Wednesday and she turned down the rumors emphatically, but after speaking with several of my sources, including my buddy Rob, who’s wife Janice went out with her last weekend, something’s definitely going on,”Glazerwrote on FoxSports.com.
Representatives fromGlazer’s wife’s camp, including her best friend Julie, shot down the reports as nothing more than baseless rumor.
“She’s very happy with Jay, and she plans on being with him for a very long time," said Julie. "He shouldn't believe everything he reads on the Internet, or in her text message history or in her mail. She wants to be a Glazer for life."
Julie refused to comment on reports that Mrs. Glazer has been working awfully late the past few months, often with a very flimsy explanation. The NFL expert continues to work the phones and is chasing down reports of a tampering charge.
"She's been talking on Facebook with her old high school boyfriend," said Glazer. "That's not allowed. And she told me years ago that he still wanted to be with her."
If the matter isn’t resolved soon,Glazersays he plans on releasing his wife sometime before the NFL draft so he can focus on bringing in a young prospect.
Fresh off her Oscar win for her role in "The Blind Side", Sandra Bullock has signed on to play the role of a star professional quarterback in the upcoming movie "4th and Life". Bullock will play a character named Kirk McIntyre, and the film's producers hope it could bring the actress another Academy Award.
"Sandy is hot after her Oscar win," said the film's producer, Harvey Weinstein. "And she is now a known commodity in sports movies. As much depth as she brought to the role of Leigh Ann Tuohy in 'Blind Side', I honestly feel the role of Kirk McIntyre a young, rich, black quarterback has even more opportunities for her to show her talent."
Bullock has confirmed her role in the film, which began shooting last month. But the majority of the filming remains as the actress works with her personal trainers to bulk up to 210 pounds for the role from her normal weight of 118.
"It's been a challenge, but this is the role I have chosen and the craft I love," said Bullock. "You always have to keep challenging yourself to expand your art. I have never played a quarterback, just as before 'Speed 2' I had never captained a ship."
Bullock has also been working for several weeks with a football coach to learn how to throw like an NFL quarterback.
"She is making progress," said Ken Anderson, former NFL quarterback and coach. "Right now her motion looks a lot like the way Philip Rivers throws. Obviously, I'd like to improve that by the time we shoot the football scenes so the audience doesn't think she throws like a girl."
"4th and Life" will tell the tale of Bullock's McIntyre as he struggles with the sudden onset of stardom, wealth and fatherhood. Miley Cyrus will co-star as linebacker Tyson Diggs, with Taylor Lautner as head coach Cap Davis.
The NFL Combine on TV is like watching paint dry if you had to stare at a stopwatch to see exactly how long it takes for paint to dry. But making media members participate would make it much more entertaining to watch. Here is the NFL Network's Ric
The dream of millions of men around the world was met today when it was reported that tennis vixen Anna Kournikova will appear in a provocative Playboy article.
"Finally, men will get what they've wanted for years from Miss Kournikova," said Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. "A chance to learn about her innermost thoughts and dreams, her political opinions, likes, dislikes and most life-changing experiences. I can feel the blood flowing to my brain already."
Unfortunately, Kournikova will only be partially revealed in Playboy, as she did not agree to a full feature story. But even without being the subject of the hard-hitting, long-form journalism everyone turns to the venerable publication for, most expect the Kournikova article to be quite intellectually titillating.
"This is a smart, young successful woman who has lived all over the world and met all kinds of amazing people," said Playboy writer Marc Vandengard, who was lucky enough to get up close and personal with Kournikova for the interview. "By agreeing to be in Playboy, she can be an example to young women all over the world."
Kournikova says it has always been a dream of hers to be in Playboy.
"I feel like I am in my prime right now," she said. "I think my mind is as strong as it will ever be. That's why, before it gets too late and before I have children and get a little scattered, that I sit down and give a good, in-depth interview on serious topics affecting the world today. Then one day when I'm old and gray, I can look back proudly at my appearance in Playboy and remember that I once had it all going for me."
Readers are unanimously excited about the upcoming Playboy appearance.
"I've long imagined how she would be completely stripped down nothing holding her back from a straight, candid, revealing interview," said longtime Playboy subscriber Matt Derescher. "So it sounds like my fantasy is finally going to come true. I just hope there aren't any distracting photos accompanying the article. Especially not of her naked breasts, butt or vagina."
Noted performer and entertainer Chad Ochocinco announced today that he will play in the National Football League in 2010, a role he will prepare for as soon as his upcoming run on a dancing show comes to a close.
"Many people don't know this, but football is something I've been messing with for years," said Ochocinco, who will suit up for the Cincinnati Bengals. "It allows me to show a different side of myself."
But those close to the entertainer fear he is spreading himself too thin and diluting his brand.
"I realize that playing football every Sunday opens Chad up to a new audience," said fellow entertainer Diddy. "But is it really worth doing that with all of the other time commitments he has? And in Cincinnati, Ohio of all places? No one will see that show. He should have gotten with a football team in New York or L.A."
Perhaps most concerning for Ochocinco's friends in the entertainment industry is the performer's insistence that he plans to play a significant amount with the Cincinnati-based football squad.
"I am okay with Chad doing this if that's what he wants to do," said actor Denzel Washington. "But there is a right way to do it. Look at Kim Kardashian's boyfriend. He's a good-looking kid, he's known around Hollywood, has a future here. He's dabbled in football, but he doesn't play much and it's obvious he doesn't take it too seriously. That's the model Chad should follow. He needs to remember where his bread is buttered."
Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis say he is happy to get the performer any way he can.
"I've only met him a few times," said Lewis. "But he seems like a nice guy and is pretty down-to-earth for a big star. I know the people of Cincinnati are excited to get someone in town as famous as Chad Ochocinco, even if it's only a brief stop onto bigger and better things."
