I have been known to call BS on Mike Florio form www.profootball.com, but his background as a lawyer helps him have some unique perspective on NFL players and the law. Read below for his take on ESPN's "Fair and Equitable" reporting......I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit saying that!!!
From facts gathered by Florio, and they have been ones that I have never seen or heard little about, it appears that Marshall was the target of some pretty straight up black mail and extortion. Reading todays article that can be seen here:
it is clear that the ESPN story was designed to publicly draw and quarter BM in the media, while BLATANTLY omitting key facts from the story that would paint Brandon as anything but the bullying, women abusing NFL player that ESPN wanted to create all for the sake of ratings and sensationalism.
While I wont say BM is blameless, I think all of us that were willing to come down on him because of the subject, more than the ACTUAL facts of the case, need to look at the case with more openness.
As for ESPN, they have once agin proven what a completely and utterly worthless agency that they are with regard to even handed reporting. They continue to try and gut the broncos for reasons I fail to understand, and the OTL report highlights this.
I, for one, am done with them. ESPN is now one of my most despised 4 letter works out there.
Would love to hear some opinions.
