ESPN is also refusing to cover the Erin Andrews story, but probably because she's an employee.

In terms of Roethlisberger, I don't know what to think. Star athletes are targets because of their fame and wealth, but they also may think that allows them to get away with anything. So I hope it wasn't true and seems out of character for him, but I just don't know...

I think the bigges story here is that ESPN is refusing to cover this case.

Does ESPN's "Do Not Report" Policy Make Any Sense?
I know I'm late to this, but, ESPN choosing not to run with the story is something I actually like.

Criminal charges kind of force their hand into airing the story, but waiting and doing more digging on the civil stories makes a lot of sense to me.

When you have a criminal charge, it at least means someone objective in the matter thinks charges should be brought. (although, that's probably more perception than reality) With civil, you don't have that layer.
