STAR TREATMENT: BE A DENVER BRONCO & BEAT WOMEN WITH IMPUGNITY

June 30, 2008

BRANDON MARSHALL

The mantle has been passed. Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall has taken up where Pacman Jones left off as the NFL’s unofficial one-man walking crime spree.

Marshall has been arrested three times in the past year. Then there was the whole I-slipped-on-a-McDonalds-wrapper incident.

A Denver Post investigation reveals Marshall should have been arrested on at least four other occassions. Police were summoned to Marshall’s residence three times on domestic violence calls. During each call Marshall’s girlfriend said he hit her. On all three occassions Denver police let Marshall go. He was not arrested on any of the three domestic violence calls.

A friend of Marshall’s girlfriend also told police that he once rammed into her car while the girlfriend was a passenger. Marshall then threw a rock at the car. Marshall wasn’t arrested in that incident, either.

Marshall HAS been arrested for theft and assaulting an officer among other charges. His own father says Marshall once pulled a gun on him.

The Denver Post article details 12 seperate incidents where Marshall has been in trouble with the law.

Marshall’s hand is still hurt after the “horseplay” incident that injured him this offseason. He was so concerned about it he joked with reporters about still not being able to “wipe my ass” during minicamp.

TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS WANT $7 MILLION BACK FROM JAKE PLUMMER

FORMER QB TURNED HIPPIE JAKE PLUMMER

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are attempting to recover $7 million in bonus money from retired NFL quarterback Jake Plummer. This despite the fact that the Bucs never payed the bonus or ever wrote a check to Plummer.

According to the Buccaneers fan website pewterreport.com, Tampa Bay is “trying to make him pay for not playing for the Bucs.”

An arbitration hearing over Plummer’s bonus money is scheduled to take place later this month. The Bucs maintain they have the right to recover the money even though it was paid by the Denver Broncos. They say they acquired that right when they obtained Plummer’s current contract.

DENVER BRONCOS RUNNING BACK SELVIN YOUNG

The Big Lead found this story in the Denver Post:

You’ve got to hand it to Denver Broncos running back Selvin Young. At least he thinks big.

Yesterday, during the second week of offseason practices, Young predicted he would rush for over 2,000 yards this season. That would be quite a feat since only five players in NFL history have ever done that (O.J. Simpson, Eric Dickerson, Barry Sanders, Terrell Davis and Jamal Lewis.)

Not to mention Young isn’t even the Broncos starting running back. At least not yet. He still has to beat out fat, overpaid, dope-smokingbaby making (nine children with nine women and counting) machine Travis Henry. Still, Broncos coach Mike Shanahan was impressed by the brashness of his second year halfback,

 

“I’d like for him to prove that to me,” Shanahan said. “And he could very well do it. There’s a big difference from your first year to your second year.”

Despite being undrafted, Young ran for 729 yards on 5.2 yards per carry his rookie year for Denver out of the University of Texas.

BRONCOS QUARTERBACK CUTLER HAS TYPE 1 DIABETES

May 2, 2008

JAY CUTLER

Denver Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler has been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. That means he’s going to have to take daily injections of insulin (probably for the rest of his life.)

Cutler’s business manager says, “in no way is his football career jeopardized.”

According to the AP:

Some 21 million Americans have diabetes, meaning their bodies cannot properly turn blood sugar into energy. Either they don’t produce enough insulin or don’t use it correctly.

Other athletes who have competed with diabetes include Hockey Hall of Famer Bobby Clarke, Charlotte Bobcats forward Adam Morrison, and golfer Scott Verplank.
