And what's this about Von being a witness to a death pent. case in Denver ...
I may just have missed this and be out of the loop but my first time hearing of it on NFL live a few mins ago.

Well time to turn the page. And Von, if you screw up again you may have one more shot, but it wouldn't come from the Broncos. Time to clean up your act.

I'm not so sure KC won't be a threat to that. They have a cupcake schedule.

Now that it is official and all the pertinent details have come out (check the usa today article from lindsay jones), I offer my apology to those of you who got a earful from me about remaining patient and not jumping to conclusions.

Now, if you'll excuse me, where is that ledge?

****!!!!

It's time for some young guys to step up. Woodyard needs to talk to them.

OK, distraction out of the way. Time to put big boy pants on for Miller or he'll be out of the league a year next time. Thanks for bending your teammates, the fans, and yourself over.

Same. Still have faith in Del Rio getting a decent defense together for the first couple months.

Otherwise, ladies and gentlemen, enjoy your Denver Mannings.

It's nice to finally have a verdict on this crap, but um, I would like to know the details so I don't hear from other fans that our guy was taking PEDs. Either way it's not a good thing, obviously, but I just want to know the facts.

In other words, I had worked Von up in my mind as a fine upstanding young fellow... One from my home state of Texas. I was wholeheartedly behind the kid with a jersey and a "It's Miller Time" T-shirt. Do I continue my patronage?

at all that thought the "original" 4 game suspension would be beat or reduced down. It was either never 4 games or 2 games got added after the fact. Goodell doesn't put up with ****.

Von's statement said that it wasn't for a failed test, PEDs or otherwise...

From what I've read, it was a diluted sample he provided... Kinda weak for a 6 game suspension, no?

OK, I'm assuming (since the water has been so murky to this point, and there are so many other turds floating around) that this is the main reason for this suspension:

Quote:

In dispute was whether this should count as a third or second violation of the league's drug policy. A second violation would result in a four-game suspension, while a third offense would trigger the year-long suspension.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...oncos/2678349/
So not only did it "spill," but the sample after practice was "diluted." Von, buddy, you've been demoted in my books. Not so sure I can support you by wearing your name and your number, but I'll cheer you on - if, and only if, you get your crap together.

No doubt... I remember when 4 games seemed crazy.
