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!!!!!"
Ben needs to watch better movies.
The sexual assault allegations against Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger continue to pile up. The latest accusation, reported today, is from a man who works closely with the star: Steelers backup quarterback Dennis Dixon.
According to Pittsburgh police, Dixon claims Roethlisberger assaulted him late one night at the Steelers training facility while the pair were watching film behind closed doors. But Roethlisberger's attorney, Ed Garland, claims no assault occurred.
"Ben is completely innocent of any crime," said Garland. "We question Dennis Dixon's motives."
Dixon, who started one game for the Steelers last year when Roethlisberger was injured, says he has no motive other than wanting to see justice done. But the fact that he waited months to report the alleged incident, and that he would stand to get the starting job if Roethlisberger was imprisoned or suspended, cast some doubt on his story.
Pittsburgh police have spoken to a possible witness of the alleged attack, Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch, but the third-stringer was not helpful.
"I didn't see anything," he said. "I slept through that film session. I wasn't going to play, so I had no reason to stay awake. Plus, it was Browns tape, I think. Extra boring. I hope Ben didn't touch me while I was sleeping."
As the case is expected to devolve into he-said, she said only with two he's Ed Garland has stressed that his client has no sexual attraction to men, "which make Dixon's claims preposterous." However, Dixon's attorneys have turned over tapes to police that show numerous instances of Roethlisberger slapping teammates on the butt.
"There is a track record with Ben," said Dixon. "That is undeniable now. I hear Byron Leftwich left the Steelers because Ben used to comment all the time on how big his breasts are."
Picture "What would House do right now?"
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will undergo tests this week to determine whether or not he should play this weekend after suffering a head injury in Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs. While the team says his status is “still up in the air,” Pittsburgh-born neurologist and die-hard Steelers fan Dr. Elliot Beamon said Roethlisberger should “definitely” play.
“Oh yes, absolutely I think Ben should play,” Beamon said in an interview with FOX Sports radio. “I saw the injury and it didn’t look that bad. Just a little bonk on the head. Nothing to be alarmed about. Roll him out there and let the chips fall where they may. Believe me, if they lose to the Ravens, they’ll have a lot more to worry about than Ben’s long term mental health.”
Beamon cautioned against overreacting to head injuries, saying it should be up to the player to determine whether or not he can play.
“I appreciate the league’s new focus on head injuries, but let’s not overreact here,” Beamon said. “If we benched every player that got knocked in the head we wouldn’t even have games on Sunday. That’s why I think the player should be able to decide whether or not to play. Either that or the season-ticket holders. Then the doctors.”
The doctor dismissed claims that he is biased and insisted that his prognosis is rooted in decades of experience dealing with brain traumas.
“Biased? I take great exception to that,” Beamon said. “I took the Hippocratic Oath. I don’t mess around with people’s lives and health. I simply feel that Ben is healthy enough to play and should play. What’s that? No, I haven’t examined him myself. I just have a lot of experience with this kind of thing, and I’m telling you, put the bastard in there and have him drill a fastball right into Ray Lewis’ groin to show that jerk how we do it here in Pittsburgh. Then we'll see who's hurting.”
According to the team, there may be good news on the horizon for Dr. Beamon and his fellow season ticket holders: preliminary tests indicate Roethlisberger has no concussion symptoms and should be able to play on Sunday.
Said coach Mike Tomlin: “He looks good. He feels good. Right now we’re cautiously optimistic. We’re going to wait, though, just to make sure. No game is more important than a player’s brain, except for possibly the Super Bowl and/or conference championship game and/or a game like this one that could potentially lead to an opportunity to play for a conference championship or Super Bowl. After all, brains last 70 or 80 years, championships are forever.”
