What a fabulous way to see Big Ben fall and hurt the Steelers' name.

Per PFT, one of the local radio guys has a message for Ben too.

As we've mentioned a time or two this week, the tide of public opinion in Pittsburgh has turned dramatically against Ben Roethlisberger in the wake of a second allegation of sexual assault.

Local talk radio has featured plenty of anecdotal evidence regarding generally boorish behavior from Big Ben (we've heard a couple of stories that we possibly will be posting, once they are vetted by the PFT legal team -- i.e., me), and his defenders are becoming fewer and farther between.

Perhaps most jarring is the maiden blog voyage of long-time, old-school Pittsburgh sportscaster John Steigerwald, who spent more than two decades on KDKA-TV, who has hosted radio in the Pittsburgh area, and who currently appears on a weekly Sunday night show on WTAE-TV.

Here's what Steigerwald says about Roethlisberger: "First of all, none of this surprises me. Ben is a bad citizen. He doesn't know how to treat people and he definitely doesn't know how to handle being the quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers. In my more than 30 years of working in the Pittsburgh sports media, I have never had any player come close to generating as many unsolicited questions from fans as Roethlisberger has. They want to know why he's such a jackass. And these aren't just Steelers fans who got turned down for an autograph. It's men and women from all walks of life."

Steigerwald specifically points to a Make-A-Wish child that Roethlisberger allegedly blew off. Per Steigerwald, KDKA opted not to pursue the matter as a news story. Steigerwald later spoke to the parents, who did not want to go public on behalf of their daughter, who had cystic fibrosis.

Steigerwald's verdict? "Roethlisberger is a punk who needs to be knocked down a peg or two."

As a general matter, Pittsburgh-area sportscasters tread lightly when it comes to the Steelers, if they value access and cooperation from the organization. Steigerwald's atypical candor is a sign that, when it comes to Big Ben, the local journalists have either gotten a nod from the team to take off the gloves, or they just don't care.

Blowing off a sick kid? Now that's a jackass :nonod:

I don't think he assaulted either woman in these cases but his actions are putting him in the position to be sued/charged. I used to think highly of him but the more I've heard of him he just seems like a giant douche.

Someone really should rip him a new one for skipping out on Make-A-Wish. That is ridiculous.

He's gotta be a posterboy for how fame can jack someone up. Before they won a Superbowl with him, he used to keep a blog and stay in contact with fans - those eventually stopped or became so infrequent people stopped caring. Remember his first year or so, when the NFL was threatening to fine him for playing with "PFJ" on his shoes which meant "Play for Jesus"? Not trying to judge him, but it's obvious something has changed and now he's playing for something else.

Maybe it will take some kind of enforced penalty to bring him back down to Earth.
