Big Ben & the Billy Graham Rule

Rich athletes might want to consider an idea from the old evangelist.

A woman has filed a lawsuit accusing Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of raping her last summer in his penthouse hotel room at a casino in Lake Tahoe during a celebrity golf tournament.

Roethlisberger's lawyer adamantly denied the allegations Tuesday, and was quick to point out that the woman never went to authorities.

According to the woman, a hotel employee, she went up to Ben's room to fix his TV and that's where the alleged crime took place.

As a young man, Reverend Graham resolved to never be alone with a woman he wasn't married to or related to by blood. This wasn't because he was a lech, but to avoid being accused of any impropriety. Prudish, yeah. But it potentially saved him aggravation a few times.

Ben, you need to think about going Graham. I bet Kobe's doing it.

Once you go Graham, you'll never be damned.
