Exclamation Ben Roethlisberger in motorcycle accident

Did anyone else hear this?
They are talking about it on ESPN radio right now.
From the info they have it doesn't sound to good.

you would think he wouldn't be allowed to ride bikes, it would be in his contract.

One witness told KDKA television that Roethlisberger was conscious but appeared disoriented before he was taken from the scene to Mercy Hospital.
He probably would have been fine if he had a helmet. what a tard.

ESPN radio just got a report from a reporter in Pittsburgh at the hospital, He said that Ben was concious but not alert. He didn't know where he was. They were saying that he suffered facial injuries but they didn't know how bad.

He had openly refused to wear a helmet before this accident.

Yep, and Bill Cower just talked to him about it last week.
I guess that didn't work.

I thought they were putting the safety stuff in his contract. they originally were telling him he couldn't ride at all if they were gonna pay him a zillion dollars. sucks either way, though. The price of looking cool is high these days.

The Bulls had a no-motorcycle clause in Jay Williams' contract when he smashed his up and ended his career. Dumbasses.

They are, but that usually doesn't stop them.
