Default Von Miller's Appeal

I find it strange, but not surprising, that there has not been further digging into Von Miller's suspension. Makes me think there is a high likelihood that someone from the NFL messed up. Next week should prove interesting:.

I'm still betting a reduction to 2 games, or even 1.

The NFL may have screwed up......but has to save face just a little bit.

Unsporspenlike conduct, doing the Hulk, that's a 15 yard penalty and an automatic first down.

I dunno where my head was but when I saw thread title, I thought this was going to be about why Von Miller is so gosh-darn likeable.

It's moving through the process like normal. We haven't heard anything because there is nothing to hear.

I still think a 4-game suspension is the most likely outcome.

I don't think the silence on the case has any more chance of getting tossed out vs 4 game suspension. I'm sure case is just running it's course.

based on what exactly? The news of the suspension was never meant for public consumption. We shouldn't know about any of this, there's no reason to speculate.

I'll be taking anything that comes out of the appeal with a grain of salt.

I might've missed it, but has the hearing been scheduled?

Not to my knowledge--which I still feel is strange. Normally, the hearings are ASAP. But, for Von it is rather nebulous: "mid-August".

Yeah it's a weird case. Aside from drugs or doping, all I could imagine would be all the fines he's piled up for the late hits, but I'm not familiar with the rules on what it takes to earn a suspension. Only a 2 year guy and he's been slapped with several hefty fines.

They always put off these hearings during the offseason. During the season they have them right away to avoid delaying suspensions.

We're the Denver Broncos. Thus, we never get any breaks. Goodell is going to RETROACTIVELY fine Miller, for all those silly little sack dances....

On the light rail today, I heard Von Miller missed a drug test while he was overseas for the NFL-sponsored USO Tour. The lack of internal league communication in this matter showcases NFL short comings.

So, no PEDs, and the missed test was due NFL official business. This is why Miller, and the Broncos organization feel confident in Von's appeal.

You hear the most interesting things on the light rail....

Von should sue for defamation of character

Maybe Med will represent him.
