CBS Sports broadcaster has choice words for Ben Roethlisberger
Zach Gelb and his comments upset me this morning. That's exactly what he wants - angry Steelers fans spread his drivel on social media.
Here's what Yellow had to say on his CBS Sports radio show, aptly titled "The Zach Yellow Show".
"Big Ben is going to complain," I didn't get my bye week when it should be, so my bye week has now happened in week four. Boo-hoo-hoo-hoo. "
“Oh stop it Big Ben! Enough about him. You have people who actually have real life problems this year. People lose jobs, people lose loved ones. People diagnosed with this virus and tested positive. And I have to hear Big Ben, “We have the short end of the stick. Boo-hoo-hoo-hoo. "
Ben Roethlisberger on schedule change: "We have the short end of the stick"
“Enough of Big Ben. Stop complaining, stop complaining. I don't want to hear it from Big Ben Roethlisberger. How, please shut up. "
Let's get that straight: Zach Yellow whines about Ben's "whining". OK.
Of course he's a broadcaster, and that's exactly what broadcasters do to get ratings. Yellow says what he knows will gain traction and unleash the keyboard warriors. Everything from his comfortable chair at home - or wherever he's on the air.
Zach Yellow has absolutely no idea what it was like for players in the NFL today - the risks they are taking to play the game millions love. Yellow has never played professional football in his life. He has absolutely no idea how this no-fault fiasco affected the Steelers and what adjustments they had to make, how the change in schedule put them at a huge competitive disadvantage.
And while Yellow is a member of the media, it is clear that he has not prepared for this segment. Little did he know that Ben's "short-end of the stick" comment was in response to a question that literally asked, "Do you feel like you have the short end of the stick?" Ben didn't just come out and start randomly complaining to the press, he was asked.
The question did not concern his feelings about the global pandemic or the loss of jobs and lives. So it's utter nonsense for yellow to make it look like Ben doesn't care about the bigger picture of the environment we all live in.
These are professional soccer players. You are not on the front lines saving lives. But they are, in a sense, "essential workers" who have all chosen to gamble rather than log out. Why? Because that's what they love to do and keep the millions of soccer fans entertained. I'm not blind; The money is enough momentum. The bottom line is that they make sacrifices and roll with the blows.
So thank you Ben. Thank you, Pittsburgh Steelers. Because as small as football is on a large scale, I honestly would be bored to tears without it.
Ben Roethlisberger is frustrated that he's being forced to start over.
