Horse Tracks: Von Miller is talking when he probably shouldn't be

Happy Saturday Mile High Report!

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Von Miller was in the news again on Friday for speaking out about his agen...I mean Von's displeasure with the Broncos and how their contract negotiations are going.

Von spoke to recently, and went on a weird rant and made a poor analogy about the Broncos and his current contract talks.

"You know you got that girlfriend that’s really not like that attractive but she’s like really good for you, and she’s going to do everything she can to keep you?" he says. "Instead of that really, really hot chick that just talks to you on Mondays. It was like that, above and beyond. That’s the same type of feeling I’m looking for from the Broncos."

Are the Broncos the "not so attractive girlfriend", or the "really, really hot chick"? If you can decipher what Von is trying to say here, more power to you! It was just a really bad analogy.

Von continued and said the negative feedback he is getting from the fans is starting to weigh on him.

"It just hurts," Miller says. "I’m not even going to lie. It’s a business but at the end of the day, I got feelings, too. I know some fans don’t know that some of the reports aren’t even true. When I get on Instagram, no matter what I post, there’s going to be 400 comments. Guys bashing me. Take the deal. You greedy bastard. I thought you wanted to be a Bronco for life? And it kind of weighs on you after a while."

While I believe fans are being rough on Von, he isn't helping his case by saying dumb things like he did above. Stay out of the media and just let the process figure itself out.

Instead, Von has been in the news for three separate things now. First. he told Chelsea Handler he wouldn't sit out the season, then his agent got to him and Von changed his tune and said he wouldn't play the 2016 season under the Franchise Tag, and now he's going on about the good for you ugly girlfriend or the bad for your hot chick thing.

But like I keep saying, this all noise and we should ignore it (yet I'm writing it up because there's nothing else to talk about...)

Anyways, here's you links for today. Enjoy your Fathers day weekend Broncos Country!
