Ben Roethlisberger -- Doomed by Billy Joel?

2/7/2011 2:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

After Ben Roethlisberger's crappy performance last night ... everyone's been asking the same question -- should he have stayed in Tuesday night and watched game film instead of boozing past midnight??

Ben Roethlisberger Video

As TMZ first reported -- Big Ben dropped $1,000 at a Dallas area piano bar ... drinking rum and Diet Cokes with some teammates past midnight ... while karaoking along with the Billy Joel classic "Piano Man."

So we gotta ask ...

Ben+Booze+Bar normally ends up in a rape allegation. Hopefully he will leave Dallas without another charge of sexual assault appearing

anyone who doesnt know **** about sports will say yes


anyone who isnt retarded and has gotten drunk at some point of their life (even tho ben wasnt drunk) will tell you that you have to drink QUITE A BIT on tuesday to feel it on sunday, especially if you are 265 lbs


sheltered life retards refrain from voting on anything that isnt involving cats or being in bed by 10pm

Ben Roethlisberger - NEVER convicted, NEVER charged, NEVER EVEN ARRESTED = INNOCENT - INNOCENT -INNOCENT.


As for the Tuesday night thing, Ben's tab was $1000 because he picked up the cost FOR EVERYBODY IN THE BAR AS LONG AS HE WAS THERE. That totaled $800 and he left a $200 tip.

Players had a 1am curfew. Ben was in before curfew. Besides that, it was Tuesday. The Superbowl was Sunday. Players are alowed to have a little fun. Get a life TMZ.

That Dallas area bar you refer to is total BS, it was a bar in downtown Fort Worth, Texas. Please get it right the two cities are not the same thing and we here in Cowtown (Fort Worth) are sick of the media's ignorance.

Karma killed Ben. But maybe he and LiLo and the Salahe's and Mel can all go to an unoccupied island for a few years........give us all a break.

No ... Ben Just really SUCKED! Steelers had too many turn-overs and allowed the Packers to gain too much momentum.

To#37 and #39

About your comments --- #37"THE DUDE WAS FOUND INNOCENT" and #39 "NEVER convicted,NEVER charged,NEVER arrrested ----INNOCENT, INNOCENT,INNOCENT"

You two are morons --- just because he was never arrested, charged,or convicted does not make BEN ROTHLISBERGER INNOCENT. Have you boys never heard of "THE OLD BOY SYSTEM" where the old boy network covers up for old boys??? No one at your school ever committ an indiscretion and because the old man had $$$ the authorities looked the other way???? Guess what --- BEN has $$$, the cover up by the old boys is what's going on here.

IF THE SEX WAS CONSENTUAL (because he was never charged or arrested like you said) ---- then WHY WAS HIS GOON SQUAD PREVENTING HER FRIENDS FROM GOING INTO THE BATH ROOM AFTER HER ------ THEY COULDN'T GET IN BECAUSE BEN's GOON SQUAD WAS BARRICADING THE DOOR -------------- SOUNDS REAL CONSENTUAL and REAL INNNOCENT TO ME ----------- YEAH, RIGHT!!!!

TMZ - Shame on you. What a pathetic ass story. Seriously, stay away from sports stories. Stop attempting to report about something that you know nothing about.

Yes, you can't commit 3 turnovers and expect to win. No more, no less. Stop reading into it as "karma" and saying that it takes a week to recover from a hangover. GET A LIFE!

And for you so called "Steeler fans" who can sit here and bash your own team after they got us to the SUPER BOWL, you're fairweather jerks who don't deserve to be part of the Steeler Nation. Turn in your towels, you self important jerks.
