Ben Roethlisberger says Justin Bieber did not curse the team

Tuesday November 11th, 2014

Singer and world class boxer Justin Bieber stopped by the Pittsburgh Steelers' team bible study on the night before their unexpected 20-13 loss to the New York Jets. Predictably, many fans are claiming that Bieber cursed the team with his presence, causing the Steelers to lose the game. 

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger came to Bieber's defense in a radio interview on Tuesday, saying the singer was one of many people who regularly come to visit the team, none of whom have disrupted the Steelers' concentration, according to ESPN.

“That’s not a big deal at all. For instance, [former Steelers wide receiver] Plaxico Burress stopped by. Obviously he’s family, but people stop by all of the time and say, ‘Hi,’ and we’ve had other athletes, actors, celebrities, stuff like that stop by. It’s not a big deal at all."

So you do not need to stay away from Justin Bieber because he is cursed, only because he is awful.
