Well, Big Ben of the Pittsburgh Steelers won’t have to face a jury or a judge in the legal system after it’s been announced that no charges will be filed in his latest assault charge. But that doesn’t mean Ben Roethlisberger won’t be charged in the court of public opinion. In fact, Roethlisbergers future will be filled with an ongoing scrutiny, opportunists, and a shadow that will be almost impossible to shed. For most NFL fans the idea that where there’s smoke there’s fire will be the most prevalent idea surrounding the Steelers quarterback.
Winner of the Super Bowl twice, the thing most people will tell you they know about Big Ben is that he’s been accused of being some kind of serial sex offender. While accusations shouldn’t cast a shadow, in the minds of the public they always do. can Ben get back in the good graces of Steelers fans? Another round of Super Bowl tickets wouldn’t hurt.
