Roethlisberger addresses the sexual assault accusations

Shutdown Corner

For the first time, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger(notes) personally addressed the sexual assault accusations made against him. Watch for yourself:

That's a very strong and clear denial, and despite the fact that it was clearly a prepared statement, Roethlisberger made sure viewers knew that he was angry about what's happening. It definitely seems like he's digging in his heels and preparing for a legal battle here.

If you're trying to predict the future of the case, I'd say Roethlisberger's statement looks like a step towards an actual trial in front of a jury.
