Sports Illustrated skewers Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in a lengthy article in its latest edition, painting him as an egomaniac who's head exploded with fame.
Much of what is written in the story are personal accounts of people who have had brief meetings with the quarterback in different places. As such, some people will downplay those events.
But much of what is in the story also rings true.
Roethlisberger has been an arrogant SOB for much of his stay in Pittsburgh. But he's not alone in that. I've dealt with plenty of professional athletes or coaches who were.
Maybe his suspension by the NFL and scathing national stories such as this one will help him wise up.
It's not too late for him to change his ways and rehabilitate his tarnished image.
Some people will never accept him back, whether he turns a new leaf or not. But it will be interesting to see if the quarterback who finished the 2009 season is the same guy who shows up at training camp later this year.
