Leadership
Najeh Davenport: Team leaders there didn't respect the fact that he didn't respect what it took to be like a champion, like a true champion. Said 60% of the locker room did not respect him.

Joey Porter: According to reports, Joey Porter called out Ben for his lack of work ethic, isolation from the team and presumably, his non-horse lethal dogs. Bill Cowher, who was present, stood idly by.

Mike Logan: Said Ben was seen by some teammates as unapproachable for their social and charity events and to sign autographs for fundraisers.

Bodyguards
Ben Roethlisberger was on E:60 saying that he hired bodyguards for protection reason. Najeh Davenport remarks "Ben got bodyguards. For what? Who do he think he is? Tom Brady?" Well, according to this gentleman-Ben needed protection from angry boyfriends.
