View Full Version : As Chiefs fans, we should all show class toward Big Ben and Steelers fans.

Rush Limbaugh, of all people, (big Steelers fan) just reported at the end of his show that Big Ben has a broken jaw, 9-inch laceration to the back of his head, some tissue damage to the face, and severely injured knees. A plastic surgeon has been called in to work on him. This doesn't sound good for Ben. It may be a long time before he gets back on the field. We really don't know what is going on. It could be bad enough that he never plays again.

I've already seen several Chiefs Planet members making comments that are not supportive at all, to say the least. This is no time to be funny or to be a jerk. You make us all look bad with your stupid comments.

As Chiefs fans, we should know what it is like to lose our best and most beloved player in an auto accident. Now, in this case, Ben survived, but his career may be over. We must put our rivalry aside and just support Steelers fans and the Rothlisburger family.

Chiefs fans should be the LAST fans in the NFL to make crappy comments about this situation in any way. We should show more class than other fans showed to us when DT passed away.

Discussions of motorcycles and helmets can be had later. For now, we should ONLY wish him well. He may be a football player from a rival team, but he is a person first. He has family. He seems to be a good guy. We should keep him in our prayers.

Now here's another one. I have been a huge fan of his since draft day (I knew they got something huge when they got him). Why would he do that to millions of Steelers fans? Its been an issue before and as the leader of a team like this, making millions from the fans who support him, he has a moral obligation and responsibility to protect himself and his body, so basically with his actions he was telling all of his fans, "F*ck you," IMO.

I don't agree, while I do beleive that he showed bad judgement I don't beleive this has anything to do with how he feels about the fans. If anything it shows that he feels that he is ultimately responsible for the decisions he makes. And while I don't understand riding without a helmet, who am I to tell others to. No matter what their profession is. The accountant who does the same thing would then in theory be telling his clients to take a flying f*&* instead of just exercising his rights.

An accountant is different. Any CPA can get the job done just as well with minimal differences. If someone could just plug in to his position and do his job, I'd agree.

And not only is the obligation to the fans, but to the team and coach. What does it say about him as a person when he knows how dangerous it is to ride without a helmet, knows how imperative his physical health is, and still does that?

He's an inconsiderate dumbass, who just went from about my favorite player, to squat.

He said he wasn't going to stop riding and that he didn't wear a helmet. He thought just "being careful" was enough. But it's only a matter of time before you go down. Ask any older rider and they will all tell you that. Every one I know will anyways.

I don't think they should be in shock. It was really just a matter of time before at least a minor accident.

First off I am a female. Second there was no ill will in my previous post.
Just how I see it. I do believe such things occur in life. Life has a funny way about it sometimes but that is my belief. You have lost a good QB. That does not mean I wish ill to Big Ben. I don't. I truly feel for him. This is truly a tragedy equal to the Palmer tragedy.

As far as believing in the idea of karma, I got that idea from Ben's own statement about the hit on Palmer, suggesting anything below the knees had to be dirty. He said it himself. I by no means feel certain that hit was dirty. It's just wild how Ben said that and now the Steelers are suffering a similar fate as the Bengals. That's my opinion. You can call it what you want. I understand your sensitivity about it…but that’s how I see it. I feel bad when any football player or athlete is injured.

You lost a QB for the next season, at least.
But I do hope Ben and his family are okay.
This is truly a tragedy.

Blah blah.... the guy knew what he was doing. He was outspoken from day 1 about riding his motorcycle. And not only that, he was very adamant about NOT wearing a helmet while riding.

Just like Grizzly Man, the guy knew the dangers, laughed at that danger and defiantly did it anyway. You can't feel too sorry for him after the fact if he knew the danger and refused to acknowledge it. I'm not gonna get all sappy now and start a chain letter praying for Ben's recovery.

No one knows the extent of his knee injuries. It is more likely that it would be hamburgerish, which makes it look bad, but it wouldn't be nearly as incapacitating as torn ligaments. He may have broken kneecaps, but those wouldn't inhibit him as would severe ligament/tendon damage. It's way too early to tell how severe his injuries are. I think a lot of people are going off the deep end here in large part due to the nature of 24 hour news which mandates that we always have something to talk about and it has to be the end of the world so people stay tuned in.

I hope that he recovers, but if he doesn't, I can't really say that I feel all that sorry for him. There is a reason why teams void contracts when players do shit like this. How do you think a hospital would react if they had a neurosurgeon who liked to huff paint in his off time? There are certain activities that one should exempt themselves from if it puts them at great risk of damaging their ability to pursue their career.

chagrin
06-12-2006, 03:41 PM
Oh, and here was Ben's reaction to Kellen Kneivel:

Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger - who was chided recently by coach Bill Cowher for riding a motorcycle without a helmet - said he and his agent reviewed everything forbidden by his contract as soon as he entered the league.

Roethlisberger said Thursday he doesn't consider himself to be a risk-taker.

"I don't do the crazy things that they say you can't do," Roethlisberger said. "I'm getting a chance to live my life and do the things I want to do. I know there'll be plenty of time for me to do crazy things like skydive and stuff like that when I get older."

Still, St. Louis receiver Torry Holt said he took Roethlisberger aside Wednesday and reiterated the need for caution when taking any undue risk.

"He understands. It's an unfortunate situation with Kellen and I hope he can learn something from this, that we all can learn something from this," Holt said. "I don't know if all agents have gone through (forbidden contract items) with their clients. I think they will now."

Cincinnati quarterback Carson Palmer was a Heisman Trophy winner at Southern California, the No. 1 pick in the 2003 draft, and received a contract with more than $14 million in bonus money alone.

With that, he said, comes a certain amount of responsibility. So things like skiing and certain water sports will wait until his playing days are done.

"I'd love to do a lot of that stuff, but it's just not worth it," Palmer said. "The organization's invested too much in me and I owe it to them to take care of my body in the offseason, not do risky things like that."

You add so much and ask so little. I could never think you're just showboating for attention.

He's a ****ing idiot. The only reason he posted that thread or duplicated the Rothlisberger one was so he could see his name in lights. What we have here is lying, cheating little weasle who has had to change his name countless times to hide his shame telling the entire BB how they should act. Truly the most pathetic poster at Chiefsplanet. Then the guy has the audacity to give me negative rep for pulling his covers. What a pussy.

Oh really? I said if because a guy I know who is a Steeler fan rides a bike and said that. Still his knees are busted, or so I hear so far.

Excellent point! I hear a helmet can protect some things but also can cause spinal cord injuries?

Velly intelesting. So, are you saying that one is better off not wearing a helmet, Ms. BucEyedPea?

Was sayin' it's not a guarantee of other injuries elsehwhere. Apparently the spinal cord one,if you note the posts correcting me, isn't supposed to be true.
I just heard another biker say that, who would not wear a helmet if he had the option legally. k? Monsieur FAX?

Sure... ask Ben Roethlisberger's jaw, sinus cavity, all his teeth, and the 9 inch cut on his mellon

This is truly a tragedy.

ROFL

No, it is truly a dumbass mistake (his mistake for not wearing the helmet and also not paying attention IF he hit her, and the other driver if she was at fault for the accident itself) and also a shocking development for his career.

My gosh woman, could you be more paleo dramatic?

No problem, Ms. BucEyedPea. Just wondering about your position on this matter. Thanks for clearing it up.

I think of helmets a little like parachutes. There's no guarantee that they will save your life, but there are few viable alternatives. I hope your friend is just puffing his chest or some doctors may be doing that for him in the future.

I wonder if Tom Cruise would tell Ben to get better by thinking positively and by eating Flinstones chewables?

I truly hope Big Ben "goes clear" in 2006!!

To each his own. I don't think it's dramatic. Even if a person makes a mistake it's still a tragedy. You need to be a woman for one day...to experience a child doing something stupid or warned about then doing it anyway and getting injured. You wouldn't hold their mistake against them.
