Two-Step World Domination Solution for Newspapers

1. Fire all sports columnists, especially thosewho talk about sexual assault as if it’s a disappointing character flaw instead of a crime.

2. Hire The Editors and printthat shit everywhere:

Fuck Ben Roethlotsletters. He’s way overrated, he’s superboring to watch,
he plays for a degenerate football team, his name is an overturned
Scrabble board, and, even among pro football players, he stands out as
an unlikable moron. Now we know his drinking habits offend the DA of
Hicksville, GA, and that he is a shameless toilet tramp. These are
certainly not the sorts of qualities a young gentleman should seek to
cultivate, but none of them are really remotely comparable to rape or
assault, nor do they require swift and sure retribution. (None of them
are really comparable to lying about felonies, either*.) If someone
goes around raping people, that person should be put in jail. Rapists
don’t need to “grow up”, “be better leaders”, or “not put themselves in
these positions”, they need to go to prison and stop raping people, and
rape isn’t a situation where you can criticize everyone for their
actions that night.

    After all, the young woman in question was wearing a DTF (“Down to F—“) pin, which signaled her willingness to have sex, whether she really meant it or not.
    FFS.

    Whet, by that logic, I am wearing an I Can Haz Cheezburger t-shirt, so clearly I am a LOLcat.

    hire the sports guys to do the real news.

  5. FWIW, I can tell you that here in Pittsburgh the Stillers fans want him gone. Just yesterday in the supermarket I overheard two separate conversations about how the team needs to get rid of him. And this town is as mad for it’s football team as can be imagined.
    (NB: I don’t listen to sports radio so I have no idea how those troglodytes are treating this.)

    But you are…

    Out of control bar culture? Whiskey tango foxtrot?
    Here’s the deal. Roethlisberger ought to be in jail. Period. Full. Stop.

    It amuses me when burned-out baby boomers talk with horror about the “hook-up culture.” Weren’t these the assholes who were all about free love?
    What makes this doubleplussad is that Ms. Reimer, the author, was one of the first full-time female sports writers. So you’d think she might not rush to defend asshole male behavior. But you’d be wrong.
