If Seahawk fans say something stupid about this, I'll punch them

A casino employee is suing Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, accusing him of sexual assault at a Nevada hotel.

The story was broken on Monday evening by ProFootballTalk.com, which reported that Harrah's casino employee Andrea McNulty filed the civil lawsuit last week in Washoe County, Nev., stemming from an alleged incident at a hotel room in July 2008.

Roethlisberger is not facing any criminal charges, and it's unclear if McNulty ever tried to file a criminal complaint before taking legal action against him.

Ummm... you didn't file a criminal charge? Hmm, that's odd. It's like the reason you're doing this is trying to get money from him. That's not fishy or anything.

Either way, Big Ben's public image is screwed and now I'll have to listen to this for the next six months on ESPN radio. While I try not to downplay the seriousness of sexual assault, the fact that this woman decided to take it to civil court first makes me think she's has other motives BUT if that proves not to be the case, I will certainly right the ship and apologize.

Overall, just a mess.
