With the Super Bowl being played between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers there is something that women have to wonder after all this time? Is it ok to forgive the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. This Steelers quarterback is a lot of things, but popular with women is not one of them.
Over the course of the last two seasons he has been accused of sexual assault on not one but rather two occasions. This last time, the incident occurring at a bar in Georgia, was enough to almost have him brought up on charges. It was clear that his judgement was not good, but it is also clear that Ben has seemed to be on the straight and narrow and will certainly take a step up in the likable department, but is it enough for the ladies to forgive him.
The truth is that Ben is a person who is symptomatic of the professional athlete in today’s society. With the exlusive coverage of athletes on ESPN, Facebook and Twitter there are a lot of people out there who put the athletes on a throne and therefore it’s easy for these athletes to believe they are one of a kind and that they should never hear the words “no.” It might not be the right way to behave but it is the way that they do decide to conduct themselves.
The key may be whether or not Ben was guilty in the first place. It’s not necessarily that he was guilty. As a matter of fact it appears that he may not have been guilty at all.
