Something To Keep In Mind When Roethlisberger Gets Booed On Saturday

It's odd that the Pittsburgh Steelers chose to sit quarterback Ben Roethlisberger at Heinz Field against the Detroit Lions last weekend, opting instead to make his return to football after a second straight offseason of rape allegations during Saturday's preseason tilt at the Meadowlands, in front of what is sure to be a hostile crowd.

But I suppose Roethlisberger should get used to enduring boos, especially on the road. I can't imagine he won't be hearing them the entire season, if not the rest of his career.

However, while I certainly don't blame fans (Steelers fans or otherwise) for booing Roethlisberger's [insert extremely cynical use of "alleged" here] offseason transgressions, I do want to point out, for the purposes of Saturday's game against the New York Giants, that the football fans in New Jersey haven't exactly made the Meadowlands a bastion of 21st century feminism.

Let he who is without misogynistic, caveman-like entitlement cast the first boo.
