I am seeing people say it was not for PEDs but for smoking bud, hmm that's legal in Denver now. Interesting if it is just for bud.

Trying to find a source where these keyboard warriors are getting their information though.

This is so awesome. Broncos keep hurting themselves and I love it. No Elvis and no Von (for 4 games). Apparently he did this when he was a rookie and it just took all this time to catch up with him.

Suckas!

Here is an article or you can also obviously just check out Roto for a recap

According to NFL policy, first offense on recreational drug use is to put a player in program. Second offense is 4-game suspension.

According to NFL source, #Broncos LB Von Miller tested positive for amphetamines and marijuana during his rookie season of 2011.

Interesting. He had some issues his first year or two at A&M. As far as I know, Sherman never let it get out as far as what he did, but he was a bit of a trouble maker. Story was he turned everything around, became much more focused on academics and football, and the rest is history. Wasn't until his junior year that he actually turned into the Von Miller we know now. Hope he isn't slipping back into old ways because outside of JJ Watt, he's probably the best defensive player in the league.

Broncos linebacker Von Miller arrested


Lindsay H. Jones, USA TODAY Sports 6:03 p.m. EDT August 14, 2013


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller isn't just in hot water with the NFL right now.

Miller, scheduled to have his appeal hearing Thursday of a four-game suspension for violating of the NFL's drug, was arrested Sunday on a warrant for failure to appear in court on a traffic citation. Miller posted a $1,000 bond that evening and was released, Arapahoe County undersheriff Dave Walcher told USA TODAY Sports.

The Broncos issued a statement Wednesday in which they said they were aware of Miller's incident.

"It was reported to the league earlier this week, and is being handled through the legal system," the team said.

The arrest warrant was initially filed on Jan. 2 after Miller did not appear in an Arapahoe County Court on Dec. 31, a day after the Broncos' final regular season game of last season. He was initially cited in October for careless driving and no proof on insurance.

Thanks for the update. I pretty well knew that the League was serious and especially after this began dating back so long, despite what people were saying about it being bogus and that the anticipated 4 game suspension would be turned around. For it to be extended to 6 games, there had to be something more egregious in the mix.

Wow. Von really going out of his way to break the law as quickly as possible.

Cop: You know why I pulled you over?

Von Miller: Depends on how long you were following me!

Cop: Why don't we just take it from the top?

Von Miller: Here goes: I sped. I followed too closely. I ran a stop sign. I almost hit a Chevy. I sped some more. I failed to yield at a crosswalk. I changed lanes at the intersection. I changed lanes without signaling while running a red light and *speeding*!

Cop: Is that all?

Von Miller: No... I have unpaid parking tickets.

[groans]

Von Miller: ... be gentle.

Supposedly the whole arrest thing over the weekend has nothing to do with the length of the suspension. It's all about stuff that was going on before that.

Default Re: Von Miller Facing 4 Game Suspension

The decision is FINAL! He evidently screwed up big time.......no "accident." The appeal has been denied!


Quote:
Early today, Broncos linebacker Von Miller said he hadn’t heard from the league. Now he has.

Miller officially has been suspended six games.

“The Substances of Abuse policy requires everyone to comply with the rules,” Miller said in a statement released to the media. ”Although my suspension doesn’t result from a positive test, there is no excuse for my violations of the rules. I made mistakes and my suspension has hurt my team, Broncos fans, and myself. I am especially sorry for the effect of my bad decisions on others. I will not make the the same mistakes about adhering to the policy in the future. During my time off the field, I will work tirelessly and focus exclusively on remaining in peak shape. I look forward to contributing immediately upon my upon my return to the field and bringing a championship back to the people of Denver.”

The fact that the outcome of the suspension is official implies that a hearing happened. Which means that the reports from last Thursday that he was meeting with NFLPA lawyers and not attending a hearing on his situation may have been false — misinformation deliberately planted by someone with an agenda.

Indeed, Miller received a hearing. He advanced his arguments. And the league rendered a decision. Miller’s statement suggests he’ll accept the suspension, serve the time, and move on.

As we now find out, it could have very well been worse.

League wanted to suspend Miller longer, settled for six
Posted by Mike Florio on August 20, 2013, 6:48 PM EDT


Now that the six-game suspension of Broncos linebacker Von Miller has become final, details are trickling out. Or in. Or whatever.

Per a league source, the NFL wanted to impose a suspension of more than six games on Miller under Section I.C.3.f of the substance-abuse policy, which permits “additional discipline” where a player engages in a “deliberate effort to substitute or adulterate a specimen or to alter a Test result.”

Others have reported that the first sample collected from Miller was spilled and the second sample was determined to be diluted. The league, we’re told, believes that the spillage occurred as part of an effort to alter the result, possibly through the adulteration or substitution of the sample.

The NFL agreed to suspend Miller only six games via negotiation with the union. Per the source, the initial breach of confidentiality that resulted in the media learning of Miller’s potential suspension became leverage in the discussions.

Concerns regarding possible flaws in the collection process also may have been a factor in the league’s willingness to reduce the penalty. Indeed, if Miller was doing something with the sample cup other than urinating into it while the collector was watching, that shouldn’t have happened because under the collection process the sample collector should have been watching Miller the entire time.

And so the two sides have found a middle ground. Miller hoped to get the number down to four, the league wanted the number to be higher, and both parties agreed to resolve the case in lieu of risking a different outcome before the case went to a hearing.
