Roethlisberger in motorcycle accident?

    Just saw a blurb indicating a radio station in Pittsburgh is reporting Ben suffered head injuries in a motorcycle crash.

    I'm not making this up. Hope he's not as stupid as Winslow or Jay Williams.

    Fuck, fuck, fuck.

    It's true. No word on severity. Here's a thread on Stillers.com...

    If he had head injuries and was wearing a helmet, that could be bad.

    If he wasn't wearing a helmet, he's just stupid.
  4. The Post-Gazette is also reporting that he's been in an accident, but no details on the severity yet.

    Hadn't heard, but I just got confirmation from someone at the Steelers. He wasn't wearing a helmet, flipped over the handlebars and hit another car. Person who confirmed it wouldn't say how bad it is. He's in the hospital.

    Doesn't sound good. He flipped over the handlebars and hit the windshield of another car, apparently.

    What a dumbass. Jesus these guys are dumb.

    Maybe this is a hoax. Nobody can be that stupid, right?

    No hoax. I got confirmation from someone who wouldn't screw around about something like that.

    Apparently there was a flap over Ben's motorcycle riding a month ago.

    All 3 Pittsburgh stations are in extended coverage.
    Apparently, his head went off the woman's windshield.
