Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has made all the news of this off-season once again for all the wrong reasons. If you haven't paid attention as to what's been going on with Big Ben, you can check it out right here.
At a charity golf event on Monday, hall of fame QB and ex-Steeler Terry Bradshaw ripped into Roethlisberger. Here are some bullet points of what Bradshaw had to say when asked about his thoughts about Roethlisberger's latest run-in.
"Our relationship is not any good. When I told him to park the motorcycle, he got pi_ _ed. Alright? Then he had the accident. And since then, there's, you know ... he doesn't like me, and I'm learning not to like him.
"He wants to break all my records, then I say go for it, break them."
"He has got to, in my opinion, he has got to realize who he is." He is an elite athlete in the National Football League."
"I hardly ever went in a club -- ever -- in 14 years in Pittsburgh. Count 'em on one hand. I was petrified of the problems you can get into. And I almost got into -- it's there, believe me.
"There's nothing greater if you're single than to walk into a bar with beautiful women, and have them just fill your ego up. And you ask yourself, 'Would they pay any attention to you if you weren't, you know, who you are?' Of course not. Because I'm not that attractive, and neither is Ben. So it's nice that you can do that (Bradshaw flicks his arm, mimicking throwing a football).
"But he's got to be careful. Stay out -- I don't want to give him any advice, because he's not going to pay attention to me. [...] He's got an image problem right now. Best thing to do is don't ever put yourself in that position again. When you're through playing football, do whatever you want to do, but right now, stay clean. Stay out of trouble. Stay out of bars. Keep yourself clean."
All I can say is, WOW. Bradshaw didn't pull any punches, did he?
Until next time...
