There I was watching the Baltimore/Pittsburgh game with Roethlisberger on offense when my wife walks in and sees him on TV.
My wife who knows nothing about football says to me: "I hate that guy!" I asked her why. She's says "Oh he's a rapist!" To my astonishment here was my wife who knew little about football, but knew the world about his ugly face. Is that how all women feel about Roethlisberger? So I asked all the guys I worked with to ask their wife want they felt about him. The answer was all the same. 100% the same! He's a negative figure for women and their viewership of the NFL. Their perception of him as a rapist true or not is a serious problem for the NFL. If he gets into the Superbowl after his discretion in the off season that's all ESPN will talk about for 2 weeks bringing negative publicity to the NFL!
So I got to thinking. Does the NFL want a QB that is perceived as a rapist in the Superbowl? The answer is a definite NO.
Guys, ask the same question to your NON-sports watching girlfriend or wife or female co-worker how they feel about Roethlisberger what and base your wager on that!!!!!!
It's a showbiz first and foremost!
