    I Have a Question

    Why is Ben Roethlisberger not being treated similar to Tiger Woods or at least getting some of the same treatment? I was just reading th enew article on the ESPN front page and this seems somewhat believable, especially since this is the second incident. What he did was illegal, what Tiger did was simply immoral but not illegal.

    I am just wondering.

    Or so I have read.

    Because a bunch of stupid fans built some kind of saintly image of Tiger Woods in their heads as a perfect golfer with a perfect blond wife and kids, and then they were all in shock when it turned out he was a human with a sex drive and infidelity issues. Plus, Woods is a bigger star than Big Ben.

    Re: I Have a Question

    People always get more emotional when it's a marriage thing.... see Sandra Bolock for example.
    With this it's just some bar-hood-rat types and his over cocky self. Just my guess though.

    Because more women find Ben sexually attractive than they do Tiger.

    Because he isn't the best at what he does. Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, and Tom Brady (dumping his first baby mama for Gisele) are and the stories magically go away.

    Rightfully so, wouldnt you think?
    I think TW portrayed himself in a very upright and semi-perfect kind of way so this was a huge fall, plus the #s are rediculous. Ben never seemed like more than a college ****** womanizer that happened to no longer be in college. Thus, no outrage, although people are now probably sure hes a crap bag.

    Yep. If Ben was slummin' around dive bars looking for some cheap action in a bathroom stall with a wife at home, this is a different situation.

    Nobody would have cared about Tiger banging chicks if he wasn't married.

    I don't know why, unless he was charged with raping the girl it was just sex between two single adults. Big difference between that and cheating on you wife and mother of your children with a dozen broads.

    Side note: Ben Roethlisberger is a big, fat, ugly dude in those photos, seriously, if he didn't have money that guy would be going home alone from that bar.

    More difficult to spell his name, thus message board types with a 3rd grade education don't even attempt it. Present company excepted, of course.
