Bearman Cartoon: Ben Ruthless-Burger

Bearman Cartoon Ben Roethlisberger Shame

American football star Ben Roethlisberger has seen better days.  From leading the Pittsburgh Steeler to two Super Bowl wins to now being suspended for 6 games for violating the NFL’s code of conduct.   When Ben came into the league as a rookie he quickly became the savior for a much suffering Steeler’s franchise.  Fans referred to him as “Big Ben” and restaurants began selling the Roethlis-BURGER.

Now, for the second time in his career, there come allegations of a sexual assault.   I won’t say whether I believe he is guilty or not.  However, it is interesting that there were trade rumors so you have to wonder what the Steelers organization knows that they aren’t talking about that would want them to trade a proven leader on the field. 

And if you think that I am just parodying a Pittsburgh player because it is a long time rival of my own Cincinnati Bengals, it is not true.  When Chris Henry was having his issues with bar fights and other drinking issues, I told many people it doesn’t matter whether he feels he is wrongfully accused or doesn’t start the problems.  You make enough money, keep yourself away from situations that might cause yourself problems.   Unfortunately, now someone who people had admired, has left a bad taste in the mouth of many who used to be a fan.

    I like my burger meat to be lean

    Is this the same guy who wasn’t wearing a helmet when he got into the motorcycle accident a few years ago?

  3. Nate Fakes says:

    I hate the Steeler’s (Brown’s fan here), so seeing him get in trouble cracks me up.

  4. Bo Lumpkin says:

    I hate to see anyone mess up and do something stupid but when they do they should be held accountable. They have opportunities that most people only dream of and then they go out and act like idiots. They might rise fast but they fall hard.

    • Bearman says:

      And yet the first time it happens wasn’t enough of a wake up call.

      • Laura says:

        I understand the sentiment, but I hardly call what he did as “messing up”.. it borders more on the criminal!

        • Bo Lumpkin says:

          You can’t get much more messed up than being criminal. Actually what he is accused of does not border on criminal… it really crosses the line into being a criminal. Michael Vick had to serve time, and rightfully so, for his mistreatment of dogs. I guess mistreating women, or anyone for that matter, is not as serious.

  5. Corve says:

    You have some folks who can handle anything. It seems he is used to the unhealthy foods as well.

  6. Friggin Loon says:

    Blahahaahaha those baseball players, geez! I wonder if the burger included rump steak or tenderloin?

  7. Friggin Loon says:

    Psst has that waitress got a claw or does she write funny? 🙂

    Another colonary no doubt 🙂

  8. I’ve got a feeling ‘Self-Control’ just didn’t make it into his play book…

    Funny Comic ..

    : )

    Don’t give Big Bad Ben any Big Bowls of Beans!

    I don’t bring me head up for air enough, so I’m not familiar with who this player is, but I agree that if you’re in a certain spotlight/ financial capability, you need to be more careful about what you do.

    A lot of athletes/celebrities say that they don’t want to be role models, but evidently that’s what the sponsors who are paying millions of dollars expect from them.

  11. susispice says:

    ok i have no idea who these ppl are so not much I can add to this except… i like burgers 😀

  12. I think I could behave myself on only half of a pro quarterback’s salary (for the most part). Receivers probably wouldn’t like that move, but I’d probably have a lot of support from the running backs (instant ground game)! 🙂

    • Bearman says:

      Half the salary but you are assuming you have half the skill.haha

      • It’ll just be all about the running game! I’ll hand the ball off on every first, second and third down (since I’ve also made myself quasi offensive coordinator – half the pay, of course). Oh, and we’ll run on fourth, too (if I’m not punting)! 🙂

  13. lynn says:

    ben should never admit to anything. remember what john gotti said? “If there was a church robbed and i had a steeple sticking out of my ass, i wouldnt tell them i did it!” 🙂

  14. Michael says:

    To me, both of those situations with Big Ben went like this:

    Ben: “I’m a football celebrity, so I get to do this”
    Girl: “But you’re still ugly, so you don’t”
    Ben: “Yes I do, I’m a pro athlete, we get to do this”
    Girl: “But you’re still ugly, so you don’t”

    And the girl wins. Ben needs to get over the fact that he’s still ugly, and modify his behavior accordingly.

    I was all over what actually happened in the Kobe Bryant thing before the details got released, so I really have a sixth sense about these things.

  15. FJ says:

    The whole situation stinks, I am glad you gave him 70s hair. Nice toon Bear.

  16. David says:

    I know this is probably just my wild imagination, but every time I see Roethlisberger in his helmet I immediately picture the tall dude in Fargo. You know the big dude who at one point says, “How far to Pancake’s House?” That’s one of the best lines.

  17. WriterDood says:

    I’d rather have a fat-burger.
    Nice job with the toon.

  18. lynn says:

    oh and imeant to tell you this last night, nice butt crack on ben. hahahaha

  19. Tony says:

    I never heard of him but to have a burger named after him he must be awesome. Was it a McRoethlis-burger. I think I need a burger named after me just so I will seem cool to the masses

  20. David says:

    Great commentary to a great comic.
