      • Sjones

        • Elizabeth Best

          So far as cash neither do I…but I would stil like for my 2 grandsons to go to this camp. How can I get a discount or coupon code ??? I have court custody of them and I’m on a fixed income. Thanksl

    • Lynne

      I would love to have my son have this experience, unfortunately, the cost is too much. I know the memories would be worth it, though. I have ms and am constantly looking for ‘experiences’ for my children that I can’t provide to them. Maybe one day:)

      • I love this city

        Maybe you’ll have some luck with KDKA’s “free admission”. Good luck!

      Typical thing for a moron to say

      • stoopm

        Typical thing for a Roethlisberger apologist to say, moron.

    • I love this city

      I was unaware that Ben is a pedophile.

      • stoopm

        You probably never thought he’d be twice accused of rape either, did you?

      • I love this city

        What’s the keyword in that sentence? C’mon you even said it… accused. So why would you even bring children into such an accusation. You are sick.

    • stoopm

      Whether you want to believe it or not, this guy has a history of sexual misconduct. Where there’s smoke there’s fire. Preying on a drunk teenager already appears to be in his repertoire.

      • rootin tootin

        You mean the underage girl (who is actually an adult) at the bar drinking illegally with a “DTF” name tag? Please…

      • I love this city

        What teenager are you talking about? I missed that one.

        • stoopm

          You are correct, she was drunk and 20 when he did his preying, that makes it O.K. in your world? You are a typical Steelers fan, help us win on the field and we’ll turn a blind eye to what you do off of the field.

        • rootin tootin

          I like football? I see that you are a fan of assumption.”when he did his preying.” You mean when he thought she was down to f%$# just like what her name tag said? Oh yes he pounced out of the bushes on an innocent victim. I’m done arguing with an idiot.

    • John

      i sure hope Ben continues with the camp in 3 years when my son will be 7 and can attend…. Go Ben and Go Steelers!!!

    • stoopm

      Rootin Tootin you are a Neanderthal, are you really going to use the argument that she deserved what happened because of what she was wearing? You are an even bigger moron than I had you pegged for. Let me guess, you don’t think women should be allowed to vote either, right?

      • I love this city

        Oh wow you really do like to assume things. No wonder that person is done with you. Ha ha

      • I hope stoopm isn't contagious

        Stoopm, you really need to read comments a lot more carefully. The word ‘deserved’ was never in Rootin’s post. I believe what they were saying was that a female shouldn’t put themselves out there like that and not expect some sort of attention.

        • stoopm

          By some sort of attention, do you mean an allegation of rape? It’s obvious that you idiots worship the ground this snake walks on, so it makes no sense for me to continue this banter.

        • I hope stoopm isn't contagious

          You’re pretty ridiculous.

    • Dan Vakulick

      Keep up the good work Ben. Does ur kid have to be 7 on the dates of camp? He turns 7 in september, and he thinks u are a great person.

      • Southern Belle

        I’ve heard last year that if your child is close to age 7 they will let him or her attend the camp. You might want to check with the camp to make for certain.

    • Southern Belle

      I just wonder how Ben’s wedding to Ashley Marie Harlan from New Castle, PA will fruition on Saturday, July 23, 2011 in Pittsburgh, PA. I think alot of the reason Ben is getting married to to clear his name and make him look like a good guy. I don’t think he was at one time but only time will tell if he has changed for the good and forever. God Can Forgive Sinners!

    • linda kern

      wow i think people should grow up ben is a great person i love all that he does for everyone my god no one says nothing about ravens and half there team did things wrong any way i would love to let all my grandkids go ….thanks ben and coach tomlin for doing this ………………….

    • MomofBoys

      No one deserves to be raped, not matter what clothing you have on. That being said, you bring on unwanted attention with your behavior and dress. People do need to think about that. I do not condone the behavior that Ben was accused of, however he was only accused. I think what he is really guilty of is poor choices. But, don’t we all make poor choices at sometime in our lives. Everyone that is so concerned about enrolling their kids in this camp, then just don’t do it. No one is telling you not to, just like no one is telling me to enroll my boys. However, if you were watching and monitoring what your children saw on tv, your children would not know what it is that Ben was accused of and therefore him being a role model would not be an issue. My boys don’t know anything about what he was accused of and if I thought for even one second that my boys were in danger, I wouldn’t allow them to attend. Children in our area need all the opportunities that they can. I commend the Steelers for giving our kids this great opportunity!




      That is strange, why would anyone want to go to the losers football camp? I love how pitt people argue over Rothys sex problems. We here in Wisconsin are scandal free and itching to repeat.

    • Disappointed

      Any child in the Burgh has heard of Ben’s sexual activities. Sending your child to his camp says its alright to behave this way. How can a parent justify that. He’s a good ball player but not a role model for your kids.

    • Surprised

      Despite his never having been charged with a crime, Mr. Roethlisberger was suspended for four games at the start of last season by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who said the quarterback’s conduct did not meet “the values of the league or the expectations of our fans.

    • eric smith

      Tomlin has won just won SB Championship. Cower won the other won with Ben at QB.

    • Kenny J

      Saint’s have a past & sinner’s have a future i personally think that he who is without sin should cast the first stone. I WAS BROUGHT UP TO BELEIVE THAT !!!!!!!!

    • nanarose

      My grandson has attended the camp the last two years and will attend again this year, he loves it and is so excited about getting to go to the camp,and the instruction from the coaches is so helpful, and the parents are free to observe the whole time. The camp is for kids and it’s really all about them.
