whether he is guilty or innocent in this situation he is still guilty for being a moron. A guy with a $100+ million contract and 2 Super Bowl rings should not be in a college bar, hanging with college kids as if he is still one. There is a reason you dont hear about guys like Brady, Manning, Palmer, Brees have problems like this... because they put themselves in these situations.

This guy is very arrogent. He gets into a motorcycle accident without wearing a helmet that could have cost him his career & life (i know there is no helmet law in PA but common sense when you're an NFL player, wear a helmet to be safe), gets accused of rape once and then still puts himself in a situation to have that happen again.

From everything i've heard and read from people i know out in Pittsburgh and articles i've read from out there, this guy has a total sense of entitlement, tries to skip out on checks at restuarants, and thinks that everyone owes him something.

This guy needs to grow up and grow up fast. I used to like the guy but after hearing all the stuff ive heard about him i have lost a lot of respect for the guy.

He'll prob skate by this with not much of a problem and continue to make millions and play in the NFL since his lawyer has been able to get Ray Lewis, Jamal Lewis & Pacman Jones off with either minimal or no penalty for some serious crimes. But his character and reputation has taken a serious hit and this guy really needs to grow up fast because there is no reason a 2 time Super Bowl winning QB should be acting like he's a 21 yr old in college.

I highly doubt a $100 million QB skips out on checks...especially when all reports from that night said he was buying rounds for tons of people in the various bars.

For some reason, this almost seems like a set-up (maybe even by TMZ). Seeing as how this website "broke" the story and has all of these details on the accuser, soroity, etc...wouldn't surprise me if they set him up. No better way to kick off the sports portion of your "reporting".

"Why is a 20 year old in a bar?"
------

lots of underage people try and get into bars or actually do get into bars whether it be by fake id or however they get in. But if she was drinking and the bar was serving her then the bar could be in some trouble.

I've read this same thing from other articles but this is what i'm talking about.

"And while Roethlisberger has a reputation for patiently signing autographs and posing for pictures while out in public, he also is known for occasionally inelegant behavior in Pittsburgh. Early in his career, he was photographed — obviously after imbibing in alcohol — wearing a T-shirt reading "Drink Like a Champion." Restaurant owners in Pittsburgh have complained he has tried to skip out on bills, arguing he brought business to the establishment."

#6- I CAN CONFIRM THAT GUY SKIPS OUT ON CHECKS.
#4- I totally agree w you
#5- Bar owner not talking - because whatever he says he does not win

People in Pittsburgh treat athletes like they are GOD. If you think Tiger Woods is bad you should see these Pittsburgh Steelers in Pittsburgh- It is rather pathetic and absolutely gross. What I think is so strange is WHY IS HE OUT AT COLLEGE BARS? Sad.

in GA, you can get into bars/clubs at age of 18...not allowed to be served alcohol until age of 21 (wristbands worn identifying those of age to drink). hence the reason a 20 year old was in the bar.
