dan the man    

its not about race to the 3 posts who are trying to make it out to be. The man was an awesome football player but a horrible man. This goes to a new low. I mean seriously, why the hell is a 51 yr old man even in the same room as a 16 yr old that is of no relation, much less if what a previous commenter said in that a condom with *** was found in the trash is true. OMG! I hope one of those prison gangs that I see on the History Channel show Gangland terrorize the man if he is found to have had sex with this girl.

I believe what drove LT to do this was the effects of long term crack use. People on crack do not care one bit how other people view them in the event something bad happens before they sober up after an arrest.

One last thing, the Big Ben incident at the bar is totally different. IT DID HAPPEN AT A BAR IN WHICH MANY MEN AND WOMENS SOLE PURPOSE OF ATTENDING IS TO DRINK AND FIND an adult OF THE OPPOSITE SEX TO HAVE SEX WITH. Important part not capitalized.

Hanging to da lef    

Back in 1985, he picked up what he thought was a prostitute at a West LA club. He took her to his hotel room, turns out that she slipped him a "Mickie". When he came to, all his cash and jewelry were gone. Including his superbowl ring.... Guy just doesn't learn....

Echt Worten    

I am not condoning what LT did but, there is a point being made. When whites male or female does an underage the word "Sexual Assault" is used and the word rape is omitted. An example there are many WHITE female teachers having sex with underage student and the there is no mention of (Statuory) rape. People of color are given different standards. Big Ben have been accused multiple times of sexual assaults and not one time have the media outcry called for him to be placed in jail. LT is currently innocent until proven guilty but the outcry is for him to go to prison. If he did what he is accused of the he needs the book thrown at him and if he did not do it let the man be vindicated.

If you don't believe it's a matter of color wait until Big Ben prowls again....The listen and read the words.

Taylor has been out of the NFL over 20 years but some how he "represents it". Ben Roethlisberger still plays, rapes two women and gets a pass. This is a classic case of two Americas. Taylor "rapes " a prostitute that got paid for mutual sex (I know I know - how does that happen), but Roethlisberger sexually assaults two women against their will. At least Taylor doesnt play Lacrosse for UVA, or did that guy "assault" his girlfriend when he killed her?
