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