Roethlisberger Hates on Cheerleaders


In this week’s Monday Night Football matchup the Pittsburgh Steelers are set to face off against the Washington Redskins but for players like Ben Roethlisberger this game won’t be a fun one to play. “I’m not a big fan of playing there because it is loud, they’re really good at home…” he told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Seems fair, I can’t imagine it’s a lot of fun having 50,000 people rooting against you and hoping for your failure, but then again, he’s a professional athlete and should be used to it. But wait, there’s more, that wasn’t the end of the quote! He went on to voice his real displeasure with playing the Redskins, “…they try to make their cheerleaders stretch in our tunnel before we come out of the locker room. That’s just not good. The couple of preseason games I’ve played down there, we’ve seen it,” Roethlisberger said, “It can be [a distraction], let’s be truthful. They’ve done it before. I’ve heard a rumor that they’re not allowed to do it anymore.”

It’s true, the league last year instituted a rule colloquially known as the “Redskins Rule” wherein the cheerleaders are not supposed to warm up in front of the visiting team’s locker room entrance. Since there are multiple entrances and such somehow the Redskins’ ladies are able to get around this rule. Meanwhile, for Roethlisberger their T&A is simply too much for he and his teammates to handle. Most players thought this ruling was an overreaction and unnecessary but clearly Roethlisberger disagrees. Hey guys, why not just play the game and THEN worry about banging the cheerleaders? You make millions of dollars, I’m sure you can charm them. So stop whining, take a peek and then go about your job.
