I didn't say his are worse. I am saying the NFL isn't picking on him like he original poster I responded to insinuated.

Hopefully we draft another stud pass rusher next year and Q. Smith comes good.

Bong Miller can't be trusted in the offseason.

And when he does see the field again and records his next sack on the Qb, it would be a good idea for you VM, not to go into your prolonged, look at me sack dance. Just do your job, show you've matured, and refrain from the hyperbole. Just my 2 cents.

Sad thing is there are still people who will root more for Miller than they ever did for guys that live clean lives, like a Tebow for example.

I wonder how many other guys successfully bride the collectors. I mean, how much money could those guys possibly make? If you're Von it's worth giving the guy five or ten grand, which would basically be impossible for him to turn down.

This thread is absolutely ridiculous.

Are the majority of you people completely unaware, completely oblivious, and completely ignorant to the realities of professional athletes?

In a related story as a child I cheated on a drug test ...
I had been caught drinking in public at 16 and they send me to a diversion course and at the end of it sprung a drug test on me. I freaked out cause I had drank and smoked herb the night before and told the tester I didn't need to go yet and needed some time. She had me drink a ton of water , and then I went pee'ed in the cup just a tiny bit and dipped it in the toilet to fill it... And passed everything. Be it this was in the 90's and how they tested is most likely changed. They used these little card things for each drug back then that they dripped a drop of urine on the card and it went through a maze kinda and had to change color by the end or you failed or something like that.

But anyway ... TL DR ... :O)

Everyone cheats on drug tests. Athletes across all professional sports. Citizens across the nation. It's not really the first thing I would look for in judging someone.

The biggest cheater I knew in HS was a friend of mine who was a gang banging thug that was in all honors and AP classes. He cheated in every class possible and every way possible. He was so good at cheating that teachers knew he was cheating and couldn't stop it without being prejudice. This was your absolute definition of a cheater.

He cheated all the way into Westpoint (sad if you don't know what school this is).

One story I have is, we all ditched school one day and he was driving without a license. He crashed into a car right by school with a 40-50 year old lady driving. Police came we got busted...reported to the school etc...he was in the biggest trouble since he was the driver... I believe he was supposed to be booked and not allowed to have a license until 21.

But, he was already accepted into Westpoint at that time and he made a phone call to a high ranking official...he made a phone call to someone who made a phone call to someone...and then we all got off with nothing. NOTHING. He was able to get his license and never booked but was just responsible for the accident. He was able to get his license right when he turned 18.

This is just one story.

He's now graduated and started off with his own platoon of like 50 and now has own company as a captain without ever serving a day as a normal soldier.

He's definitely cleaned up his act. If you met him today you'd think he lived his life has the law abiding citizen. (he's obviously not like this around friends and definitely takes advantage of his status...which is to everyones benefit around him)

Moral of the story?

Stop ****ing judging people over stupid sh*t.

Someone in this thread said that Von Miller's situation is just as bad as Aldon Smith? Getting caught drunk driving multiple times, being directly involved with stabbing, getting caught drunk driving with weed and pills?

Is just as bad as cheating on a drug test?

I heard that Von also buys non dolphin-safe tuna and only recycles when people are watching. He is a filthy human being.

Well, Aldon Smith was suspended by the 49ers ( after the game today)
"indefinitely" and is being checked into a rehab ( like that works, if the person hasn't made up his mind to get straight himself.)

Probably partially, cause they hope that this will head off the ginger hammer.

I hope that Von is smart enough to realize that his days in the NFL are numbered if he doesn't get straight...but I'm not sure that he is.

I know he moved his parents into his house....but I wonder if his parents are not partying with him.

At any rate, when his suspension is over I am looking forward to him getting back on the field and making plays. Whether he is dumb as a rock or not , he is a really great player, and as long as he is not endangering other people off the field, I will cheer him.
And if he does screw up that way, we won't need to worry about it....Goodell and the Broncos will take care of it. He is now working with a full count and can either get on base or be out.

Cheating is doing something to give one an unfair ADVANTAGE. Explain how smoking pot gives one an advantage on the football field.
If I'm not mistaken, the 'cheating' refers to the drug test, not smoking weed..

Moral of the story?

Stop ****ing judging people over stupid ****.
Sad is you expect someone to know Westpoint when in reality, it is called West Point.

Moral of the story? You make long posts and have been kissing Von Miller's ass ever since this started months ago.

Seems your friend got his **** together because his **** wasn't together a while back and we would have every right to criticize his behavior back in the day.

Your moral of the story is that people can change.

Still doesn't make Von Miller a good teammate at this moment.

Sorry I misread where you said Von's issues were just as serious if not worse than Aldon Smiths.

Aldon Smith is now on an "indefinite leave of absence" to deal with said problems, and a suspension will be forthcoming.

Presumably, he's in rehab... which by the looks of things is where he belongs.

"He's fast," one source said of Miller, "but he's not that fast."

One source was "reasonably certain" no money changed hands between Miller and the collector, but that there was concern the NFL may have a problem beyond Miller and the collector involved. The NFL and the NFLPA declined comment.


lmao.....there is going to be a **** ton of failed tests next year
2014 will be the season the NFL had to temporarily shift to 7-man football.

It'd be sad if I went there,but the punctuation if irrelevant to getting my point across.

Yes, you would have every right to criticize...however you people go beyond that and completely WRITE PEOPLE off as if people can't change. It's funny you talk about people changing considering that's exactly what I've been preaching about Von in all these threads.

You telling me I'm "kissing Vons ass" aka supporting a Broncos player as if I'm the one in the wrong here or doing something absolutely ridiculous. OH NO I'M SUPPORTING A BRONCOS PLAYER!

No it doesn't make him a good teammate but it also doesn't make him the absolute scum of the earth either. At the end of the day, it's about supporting people/players and hoping they get back on the football field while getting their **** straight. Not talking about cutting Von Miller.

You see the 49ers CEO statement of Aldon Smith?

Quote:
York said the team will stand by Smith.

"I am willing to support Aldon as long as he is willing to work at this and fight to get better," York said.

I read a post in the other Broncos forum about "Our family will not be buying a Von Miller jersey nor supporting him."

I'd bet that same family probably pays money to watch Robert Downey Jr. and Johnny Depp movies...
