If Ben did do what McNulty said, I hope they book him. I hope he goes to jail for a very long time. I hope the league suspends him. After all, if Michael Vick gets suspended for dogfighting, Ben should get suspended for raping a woman. I will get rid of my jersey. I will lose all respect for him, because raping a woman is not okay, even if you are a football god.
I’m really hoping this is not the case. But if it is, all my time will go to worshiping Sidney Crosby. The police aren’t investigating this, which is good for Ben. They don’t believe
What I found odd is that it took a year for McNulty to press charges, suspiciously after Ben won the Super Bowl and right before training camp. She can get a lot of money from him. She also did not scream for help, but told him she wasn’t on birth control. Then, after he was finished, she went to the bathroom to straighten up. Not out of the hotel room for help, but to the bathroom. I’ve never been raped, but that’s not how I’d react if I was raped. Plus, there are nine co-defendants. Hmm …
She really has no evidence. Only her word which means nothing.
Well, never does his.
Now, TMZ has an interesting take on this. I usually don’t consider TMZ reliable, but it’s quite interesting. Apparently, a coworker told TMZ that in July 2008, McNulty was sleeping around with a married man. The wife made up a fake soldier in Iraq who began to contact McNulty. She fell in love with "the soldier" and told people they were engaged until “he” stopped talking to her. Then, she said that the soldier died and began seeing a psychiatrist.
Suing athletes is nothing new. Jerome Bettis was accused of rape and proven innocent. And there was the Kobe case. It’s kind of sad in a way, because I think athletes are easy targets.
McNulty is cutting into my post-Super Bowl celebration. But rape and sexual assault are serious allegations that need to be dealt as such, whether he’s innocent or not. If she’s right, Ben needs to serve his time. If she’s lying, she shouldn’t be wasting mine.
