View Full Version : 104.3 Reporting that McDaniels _didn't_ inform Ellis

104.3 just had comments from the Ellis and NFL oversight - Pash. Apparently they asked several times if McDaniels told Ellis what was going on, and apparently every time Ellis dodged the question. Ellis didn't find out for 8 days after McDaniels conversation. The speculation is that Joe Ellis immediately freaked and called the NFL. There was a lot of speculation how Ellis heard it in the first place.

They also raised two good questions - why would someone who has already been slapped by the NFL possibly think that this was a possibly good reason to bring it up with McDaniels? And then how could McDaniels - who lived through the New England experience - not think he needs to inform his superiors.

Oof. It's worse:

NFL is keeping some details of investigation confidential. Like who reported the violations.

If the first they heard of it was from Ellis or McDaniels, they would have reported it.

Depends on your perspective.

Other teams, the media, other teams fans - Comedy
The league, the Broncos - Drama
Broncos fans - Horror

I work for a company with 100,000+ employees. Everyone from the CEO to the janitors go through the same ethics training every year. If anyone stumbles across suppliers, customers, or competitors proprietary data and doesn't immediately contain it and report it they would be fired by the end of the day.

Have to wait to hear all the details but it sure sounds like McD knew what he had was unethical, and tried to hide it rather than report it.

As a correction - some employee other then McDaniels told Ellis about it. The NFL won't release who it was to protect that person from revenge. The NFL statement was refering that development.

He did. McDaniels and the NFL both said he informed the "organization" on their return from London, at which point the Broncos started an internal investigation.

Maybe McDaniels and Ellis aren't the best of buds right now and McDaniels instead went directly to Bowlen. If so it'd be interesting to know when Bowlen let Ellis know, if he did.

Please stop spreading mis-information, this is not true. Ellis and the NFL made it clear as day on their call today that a third party reported it to Ellis.

If that were the case, Ellis would have just fired McDaniels.

It does matter. McD fired a good portion of our actually talented players because he wanted "character" guys on the team. And then he hired this guy. And now this.

Matters to me at least.

What is going to be really interesting is Steve Scarnecchia's side of the story. I wonder how long it takes the sports media to descend on him?

He may have to have been paid some money to keep quiet would be my guess.
This investigation has gone on for a while, and I'm sure they all sat down and discussed some details in his exit interview...

Only a few days ago I though McDaniels should get his full three years here.

But at this point?

1. He hired Scarnecchia who had already violated the league's integrity policy and with this latest offense is a two time offender and could be banned for any further employment in the NFL.

2. McDaniels failed to report this guys walkthrough recording so essentially Josh protected a guy who had violated league policy - TWICE! I can respect Josh for supposedly refusing to watch the walkthrough (if indeed that's the case) but what's not debeatable is that McDaniels violated league policy in not quickly and decisively reporting the matter and subsequently has been found guilty and fined.

That's not the kind of coach Bowlen wanted to hire, that's not the kind of coach who can look every player in the eye and expect accountability, that's not the kind of coach most Bronco fans want to represent their team here and in England.

At this point, I could care less about whether he gets fired today or at the end of the season. He means nothing to me.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/11/27/did-a-broncos-employee-blow-the-whistle-on-mcdaniels/

One of the biggest questions in the aftermath of the league’s decision to fine the Broncos $50,000 as the employer of a rogue (supposedly) videographer who recorded the 49ers’ walk-through practice prior to the Denver-San Fran game on October 31 was this: How did the matter land on the league’s radar screen?

In the wake of the joint conference call conducted by Broncos COO Joe Ellis and NFL lead in-house lawyer Jeff Pash, that question remains unanswered.

Based on some of the buzz words used by both men, it appears that someone within the Broncos organization blew the whistle on Steve Scarnecchia’s unilateral (supposedly) activities and coach Josh McDaniels’ decision to move forward without reporting the incident to his supervisors or to the league.

“I’m not at liberty to reveal the details of the investigation,” Ellis said when asked specifically how the matter came to light, given that McDaniels opted to move on without disclosing it to club management. “I’m going to defer to Jeff on that. We promised the League confidence on that. I’m not willing to go there.”

Neither was Pash.

“One of the things about our policy and the duty to report is we do make a pledge, and this is not unusual in these settings, we do make a pledge of confidentiality as part of a way of encouraging people to come forward and also protecting people against possible retaliation,” Pash said.

That’s lawyer talk for “someone blew the whistle and we don’t want that someone to be targeted for termination by McDaniels or anyone else, because then everyone would be sued out the wazoo.”

Added Pash, “I think from our perspective I would say our office learned of it, as I say, from ownership and the club’s senior executive. We investigated thoroughly and confirmed what happened. I don’t think in keeping with the promises of confidentiality that it’s appropriate for us to go beyond that.”

So, apparently, someone told Ellis and/or owner Pat Bowlen. They in turn shared the information with the league. And the identity of the persons(s) who told Ellis and/or Bowlen won’t be disclosed by the team or the league.

Moving forward, McDaniels would be wise not to wonder who blew the whistle, even though knowing that someone broke ranks is the kind of thing that can drive a control-driven coach crazy with paranoia and/or rage.

You work in Broncos PR don't you? If not, I will be a reference for you. You are perfect for the job.

I appreciate your unwavering support of all things Bronco...but dude - you need a reality check.
