    Broncos' Miller faces suspension

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/94...ension-sources


    Denver Broncos Pro Bowl linebacker Von Miller is facing a four-game suspension for violating NFL policy, per multiple sources.

    The case currently is in the appeals process so it's uncertain whether the suspension ultimately will stand.

    The league has a strict confidentiality clause on such cases. If the case works the way it's supposed to, the NFL would only comment if the appeal failed.

    But at the very least, Denver will be dealing with another significant issue during training camp. Last week, the team suspended director of player personnel Matt Russell indefinitely without pay and director of pro personnel Tom Heckert for one month without pay for their recent drunken-driving arrests.

    If Miller is suspended in Week 1, the Broncos would be facing the defending champion Ravens without the star linebacker and Elvis Dumervil, who was released by Denver this offseason and later signed with Baltimore.

    Miller, 24, had 18.5 sacks last season for the Broncos.

    Would that policy be the drug policy?....

    No wonder why he's so good.

    90% of the NFL is on some kind of PED. My reaction to these things is never "I can't believe he did it" so much as "I can't believe he got caught."

    My reaction with NE players is "I can't believe he didn't get caught for that"

    Could you imagine if two executives in the Jets FO were busted for similar transgressions.

    It seems that scumbaggery is rampant in today's NFL. I blame the commissioner for not cracking down hard enough on New England after Spygate.

    Goodell is a corporate scumbag hypocrite.
    His babies in New England are just following his lead.
    Unfortunately for the rest of the players they are not aware that they are held to a much different standard than the NE Pasts* and their players/coaches/owner/etc

    Looks like he has tested positive for weed and amphetimines in the past.

    Now the fax machine debacle with dumerville looks even worse.

    Mass murdering Hernandez >>> Juicehead Von Miller

    Denver needs to raise its game if it wants to compete with the NE Circus.

    In a good world, it would be nice to write off this post as outlandish even ridiculous troll-bait.

    The problem is that Goodell DID cover up Spygate, and he does seem to treat Kraft and NE differently than other teams. I know Kraft is viewed as one of the leaders of the owners but the bias is real and disheartening.

    Especially since Denver plays Baltimore in week 1.

    As long as they have Peyton Manning and not Tom Brady, they'll NEVER be New England.
