“I’ve reached out to Santonio, kind of like [Jerome Bettis] did to me,” Roethlisberger said.
“I gave him my numbers, told him to call me, and when he got into trouble, I called him a bunch of times and left a bunch of messages for him, and he has never called me back, so I don’t know how to take it.
“If he wants me to help him and wants me to take him under my wing, I’ll do that, but it is his call, now, not mine. The ball is in his court, so to speak, but I think he’ll be OK and, hopefully, he’ll get to camp and get his head screwed on straight.”
Is this a case of Ben being a nosy “you didn’t ask for my advice or leadership but you sure as hell are gonna get it even if I have to stalk you and call you six times a day and violently shove your ass under my wing” busybody, or Santonio being an asshat?
I honestly can’t make up my mind.
Also, hello, ladies? If this isn’t a little peek into Ben’s dating style, I don’t know what is. I bet as a boyfriend, he would get annoying fast. “I called you twelve times today AND left messages. Why haven’t you returned my calls? What did PittGirl tell you? She lies.”
