The media have long chronicled the romantic exploits of sports heroes, of course: In the 1950s, Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio appeared twice on the cover of the New York Daily News. But our obsession with athletes' wives and girlfriends, or WAGs, has only intensified as players reach new heights of celebrity. Todd Hinds hatched PlayerWives.com five years ago with some friends, after a heated barroom debate about which Red Sox player had the hottest wife. Player Wives was initially devoted to picking the most attractive WAGs, but Hinds and his crew soon saw that people were more interested in actually learning about the women (shocking, I know). So they started crafting short profiles of athletes' significant others, hedging if a relationship was unconfirmed. They learned that the more obscure the player, the better. "We noticed that posts on backup linebackers were getting traffic," says Hinds, 33.
Type any of these questions into a search engine and the same website pops up: Talk-Sports.net. Click through and you'll tumble down a rabbit hole of old-school message boards called Girlfriend Forums, in which anonymous commenters speculate on the love lives of professional athletes. Talk-Sports' design -- Times font, bolded hyperlinks, pallid blue background -- feels anachronistic, like an Angelfire page that was never snuffed out. Yet this weird little corner of the Internet has thrived for nearly a decade. Talk-Sports' creator, a Canadian programmer named Randy Charles Morin, says the site has thousands of active users, who he claims have scooped reporters on news involving athletes such as Tiger Woods and Adrian Peterson. "I've been threatened to be sued, probably several hundred times," he says, laughing. Spend enough time on Talk-Sports or Reddit and it becomes clear why athletes are working to reclaim their own narratives, whether it's LeBron James explaining his decision to return to Cleveland in a letter, Derek Jeter becoming a publisher or the countless players who pour their hearts out on Twitter after games. Yet their stories are already being written, typically by people they have never met. Instead of waiting for stars to reveal themselves, fans mine the dirt that collects online, destroying and rebuilding imperfect monuments to their heroes. Consent is irrelevant. "I think a lot of people are interested in drama," Morin says.
Ben was team mate nd I know for a fact that him nd B are still together because she flying out there on Wednesday. It's funny how people will make up anything to try to ruin a happy relationship. Some people are just so miserable with their lives. Nd as far as Trob goes.. Ben is like a little brother to him so that says a lot right there.

no she do not date him. it was a fling. im followin her on twitter too and a while back when he was in college she drove to dallas with a friend to the game. she posted pics of proof sleeping with him, but that was all. she SAID she was around for the draft but yet couldnt confirm it. shes a stripper. she travels and dances at random clubs
they dont mess around like that no more. or maybe not at all. she has been linked to alot of guys
I don't believe Ben is dating that Brooke chick. I saw him post a pic of some hideous black girl on his Instagram late night. The next morning, it was gone. He never post pics of Brook & she's actually something to show off. I agree with rookie-- she should give John Wall a shot.
Yeah I saw that too! It was draft night smh. She's extremely pretty I truly believe it was more of someone hating on her. The things they said were outrageous. It all sounded like lies an angry ex would tell. We all know how catty girls are. I wish Brooke & Ben the best. She's beautiful and he is so fine I love and support a nice brown skin BLACK couple. F the haters
He deals with this black / Dominican chick who seems to always be on the up & coming or hot guys. Shes hot but seems a little ghetto. A burn page on twitter "exposed" her & went in 20+ tweets mentioning her & Ben with screen shots of her w rappers and Instagram comments back & forth with guys. Neither responded but days later she was in NewYork with him for the draft (didn't attend) but tweets through her & Ben prove it. Later was supposedly In Vegas with him (proof through tweets) she's cute but I wonder if he's tricking. Anyone know?
Her twitter or Instagram is BrookeShow or thebrookeshow I think... I'm unsure
