NFL Draft Fans BLAST Steelers, Ben Roethlisberger: 'She Said No' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Even though he was not in attendance, Thursday night's first round of the 2010 NFL Draft gave fans their first opportunity to ridicule Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger since he was accused of sexual assault for the second time in less than a year.

As NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who himself excoriated Roethlisberger in a letter earlier this week, spoke at the podium before the Steelers' selection was announced, the Radio City crowd showered the facility with chants of, "She said no." According to claims in the police report on the alleged sexual assault, Roethlisberger's accuser "continued to say she didn't want to have sex."

Accompanying Goodell to announce the pick was Zachary, a child from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Fortunately, just as the boy began to speak, the crowd's vitriolic chants turned to cheers. Scroll down for video.
