I officially recant my earlier statement that the Broncos will make the play-offs.

On another note, imo, this is where the team should step in & punish Dumerville. They should be harsh enough that Goodell doesn't feel compelled to meddle, yet fair enough that the Player's Association don't meddle as well.

This thing we've got now, where the owners & teams are virtually untouchable, while Goodell plays judge & jury is just not going to work.

The team has to be held accountable.

In fact, imo, if Goodell isn't satisfied with the punishment the team metes out, he should punish the team, not the player.

The athletes are adults. The teams and owners have no ability or right to follow them 24/7 and keep them out of trouble. College student commits a crime you don't go punish the parents and grandparents.

On the original report - this one could carry jail time.

Elvis Dumervil’s lawyer: It is likely no charges will be filed

Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil was arrested for a felony count of aggravated assault with a firearm in Miami on Saturday, but his lawyer says he doesn’t expect Dumervil to be charged when all the information about what happened comes to light.

Attorney Harvey Steinberg told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that he believes Dumervil will be cleared after authorities in Miami complete their investigation.

“No charges have been filed,” Steinberg said. “No aggravated assault or assault took place. And it is likely that once the full investigation is complete, no charges will be filed against Mr. Dumervil.”

Few details have emerged about what led Dumervil to be arrested on Saturday night. Aggravated assault with a firearm is a third-degree felony that could lead to a sentence of up to five years in prison.


After thorough investigation, I have complete confidence that the underwear that I am wearing will be proven not to be my own.

Supposedly, a second person was arrested along with Dumervil.

This coming off the heals of Jason Kidd being arrested this weekend for DWI.. I believe it happened in or near the Hamptons, New York. This after some benefit or something that he lent himself to..

Come 'on MAN!!!

I'm fine with that. Goodell should leave them alone then. Let the law handle it.

But I bet he'll find a way to fine Elvis.

CBSSports.com Rapid Reporter Andrew Mason writes that "The arrest makes Dumervil the second Broncos defensive starter to face an open criminal inquiry; linebacker D.J. Williams faces a retrial on a DUI charge in August." (Willams was most recently in the news for flunking drug test No. 2.)link (http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/blog/eye-on-football/19590935)


An attorney got involved in this case with the claim of innocence too, and..........

The Denver Post reports sources close to Dumervil, a Pro Bowl defensive end for the Broncos, say Dumervil isnít the owner of the car he was driving, and isnít the owner of the gun found in that car, either.

Dumervil is accused of getting out of his car during a road rage incident, walking up to another car that was stuck in traffic, yelling at the driver and lifting his shirt to show that he was carrying a gun. An employee at a nearby store witnessed the incident and called police, apparently confirming most of what the victim in the case told police.

Dumervilís problems on the road arenít limited to offseason visits to his hometown of Miami. He has pleaded guilty in at least six traffic incidents in Colorado since he was drafted by the Broncos, ranging from speeding at more than 20 mph over the speed limit to driving on a suspended license.

From PFT.com.

The law doesn't care if you own the gun, it is whether you use the gun.

On the speeding I can't say anything philosophical but I can say you're a dumbass to get caught that often.

If he got pled guilty 6 times, chances are he got caught way more than that. Maybe being a Bronco got him off & he thought sooner or later they will learn.

Still a dumbass, I know.

Hell, going all "Ice Cube" in the middle of the street says it all doesn't it?

Untucked & Cuffed

TMZ has obtained a photo of Denver Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil ... taken WHILE he was being arrested for allegedly flashing a gun at another motorist during a road rage incident in Miami.

The photo is interesting because it shows the front of Dumervil's shirt untucked and hanging over his shorts ... relevant because the alleged victim had told police Elvis and another man both approached her car and lifted their shirts to show they had guns tucked into their waistbands.

According to the police report, Dumervil had been driving a Land Rover on Saturday ... and following his friend who was driving a Mercedes ... when a woman in an Impala merged between the two cars ... upsetting both Dumervil and his friend.

The men allegedly got out of their cars ... approached the Impala and threatened the female driver while flashing their guns.

Dumervil -- a two-time Pro Bowl D end -- told police he didn't have a firearm ... but cops say they recovered a weapon in the glove compartment of the Land Rover.

28-year-old Dumervil was ultimately booked on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

A rep for Elvis had no comment on the story.
