Horse Tracks: Von Miller is getting fined for his farts

Good Morning Broncos Country!

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

So according to the Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala, Denver Broncos All-Pro Linebacker Von Miller is being fined because of his farts. Yes, Mile High Report readers you read that correctly.

According to Miller, the Broncos have imposed a "fart tax" for passing gas during team meetings. Miller is apparently a repeat offender because he says he's been fined the most.

Miller has apparently found a way around this fine.

"They can't fine me if I get up and walk away. It's NOT healthy! I keep trying to tell them that it's not healthy to sit there and hold it in. Nobody in the world does that. I just do it more than the average person."

Nicki Jhabvala later tweeted out "Von was never fined by the Broncos. It was just a silly thing among the players.". I figured this was obvious, but sites like(Yes, I actually googled Von Miller Fart Tax) Pro Football TalkDeadspinFox SportsNew York Post and many more sites were slamming the Broncos for this fake "Fart Tax".

You know it's deep into the offseason when you're writing about Von Miller's farts. Training Camp please hurry up.
