The Brandon Marshall stabbing

The life part first: Brandon Marshall will live. He is in stable condition and will survive, according to source at the Broward General Hospital where he is in Intensive Care. The stab wound, which a source says is to his abdomen, was serious but not so that he needed immediate medical transport. In fact, Marshall was driven to the hospital in a private car rather than an ambulance. Marshall is expected to be discharged and will be allowed to go home today.

Michi

The legal part: Marshall was allegedly stabbed in the stomach by his wife Michi Nogami-Marshall (pictured). She has been arrested on aggravated battery and with a deadly weapon domestic violence charges. She is awaiting the posting of a surety bond in the amount of $7,500. Here is the arrest search page.

It is logical to believe Nogami-Marshall, 26, stabbed her husband, but at this hour there is no certain proof of that, there is no arrest report to allege that, and I would dare say the spouse is often a reluctant witness in such matters and often does not press charges. This would not be the first domestic violence incident between these two.

[UPDATE: The Miami Herald has acquired a copy of the arrest report. It states Nogami-Marshall stabbed Marshall with a kitchen knife. Marshall told police he had slipped and fell onto a broken glass vase, obviously a tact to avert his wife's arrest. Police inspect the scene and found no evidence to back Marshall's claim and then arrested Nogami-Michi and after she was read her Miranda rights, she told police she stabbed Marshall in self defense. This is the arrest report.]

Sources have told the Dolphins Marshall was not violent in response to the stabbing. But ...

The club has questions about how the incident began. Club personnel realize most wives don't just wake up in the morning and stab their husband without provocation. This issue will be important because the NFL's personal conduct policy will come into play.

The football part: What a nightmare!

The Dolphins have a problem and a problem child on their hands. First, the club scrambled this morning to find out if they could even go to the hospital or send a representative because there were questions whether that is an NFL issue regarding the lockout. I am told club representatives have not seen Marshall and are staying away from the hospital.

"Very frustrating," one source texted me.

The team is getting its information through the doctor attending to Marshall who is talking to team doctors. The club is also monitoring media reports for details.

The club has released a statement. "We are aware of the report, and our thoughts are with Brandon at this time. We will look into the matter, but because we are not allowed to have any contact with any of our players we will refrain from making any further comment."

The Dolphins have asked the NFL for permission to speak with Marshall. They are awaiting a response from the league at this hour.

[UPDATE: The Dolphins have been told by the NFL that team doctors are allowed to see Marshall and that Marshall's private doctor can consult with the club's doctors and trainers.]

I hate to bring this up, but Marshall, in less than one year with the Dolphins, has been pretty much the same guy off the field he was in Denver -- becoming embroiled in violence and domestic violence issues. On the field, he's not been as good as he was in Denver, catching fewer passes for fewer yards than he did the past three years with the Broncos.

And he did cost two second round picks and a $47.5 million contract with $24 million of that guaranteed.

Ironically, Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland defended the idea of Marshall only a few days ago when compared to the price of the draft picks used in acquiring him:

“Yeah, you wish you had it, for sure, but I know I got a great player (Marshall) out of it to," Ireland said of not having the pick versus having Marshall.  "So last year that was the right thing to do and I am glad we got the player, but now I’m ‘dangum I wish we had that second round pick’, but you pay for what you get. We got a great player and I am very proud of that. The great thing about this year is we really have an extra first round pick and an extra fourth round pick, because neither one of those guys have played, (2010 first round pick) Jared (Odrick) and (2010 fifth round pick) A.J. (Edds), so those two picks are really going to impact this year’s draft class more than last year.”

Marshall's domestic violence issues are not new. He was involed in a public incident with his current wife in March 2009 when they were charged with disoderly conduct for hitting, kicking and screaming at each other in public. Marshall had no less than seven domestic violence incidents with his previous girlfriend Rasheedah Whatley.

Wow Instant Karma....what a GIGANTIC waste of your time....

You could have just have easily said that Brandon Marshall has never been convicted of any charges ever alleged against him....

See how simple that was......

and it didn't take an hour of my life....

ok. so marshall is going to be ok and his wife is currently in jail. so, let's get on with our lives and let's get back to our favorit subject- how we feel jeff ireland is going to screw up this draft.

You simply have to ask, what are the chances Marshall won't have any more encounters with the law? How many of you have had that many encounters with the law? How many current NFL players have that many encounters with the law?

Legal matters aside, one has to think how his behavior affects the team in terms of distractions and possible suspensions. He could be 100% in this particular matter, but lying to the police alone is considered obstruction of justice, and Goodall could suspend him on that alone.

I know he is your hero and you love him, and love is blind, but one has to consider how someone always finding themselves in controversial situations will impact the team, and do you really want to fork up tens of millions of dollars for someone with a never ending track record of problems.

if everyone is going to spend the whole afternoon talking and bickering about brandon marshall and the stabbing incident i'm just going to go and make my Easter meatloaf now.

Kris, it didn't take an hour of your life, nor did it take one minute, because you responded so fast for sure you didn't even read it. It only took me 3 seconds to copy and paste it.

Have no fear of reality.

INSTANT KARMA,


HOW MANY TIMES YOUR FATHER ENCOUNTERED THE LAW ? AND HOW MANY TIMES YOU MOTHER DID ENCOUNTER THE LAW ?


IF YOU HAVE ANY SISTERS ,I LOVE TO KNOW HOW MANY TIMS THEY ENCOUNTERED THE LAW ?

i make my Easter meatloaf from squirrel. it takes me about 32 of them to make a 6" x 6" meatloaf. in honor of the Easter Holiday i shape it like a bunny rabit.

DM1DOLPHAN,,,,, MEATLOAFS ARE OVER RATED .

the whole thing started when his wife said, "brandon, where the hell you been out wiff anutha hooka?" and he replied by saying, "they are ladies of tha evenin'." then she said, "that's it, i'm gettin' my ginsu!"

The end result of signing someone with character issue, aside from the legal and moral aspects, is that this guy may be suspended by the league if he did anything wrong. When fans keep wanting their team to sign these low character guys, buyer beware, they my be suspend, shot, jailed, or injured by their actions. Most on this blog were more than happy to sign this guy. He is a ruined season waiting to happen.

Aloco, here are the answers to your questions
0
0
I have no sisters. But me I've had some speeding tickets.

I guess some of you think several instances of run ins with the law is normal. To me it isn't and I'm just a po white boy.

For ANYONE to insinuate that Marshall brought this on himself, ANYONE, they have to be a bit ignorant.

You cam look at his history, add this to that and so on and so forth, and draw some conclusions, THAT'S FINE!

But, to say that someone brought on or deserved to be stabbed. That's incredibly IGNANT! I-G-N-A-N-T, Ignant, that's what that is!

Turn it all the way around and you'll gain some perspective. Lets say Michi stayed out for two nights partying. She came home smelling like.......ah, another man lets say.

Brandon gets in her face and they start fighting. Let's say she even threatens him and smacks him in the face or punches him in the head.

Even THEN, does she deserve to be stabbed? Would they simply arrest Marshall and hold him on $7500 bail? Are you kidding me? I've been held on $75,000 dollar bond MANY TIMES for A LOT LESS. What a joke!

I've seen no indications that anyone deserved to be stabbed. If she had been injured you can bet your a s s it would be in the news, police reports and here on the blog. Self defense? I'm not so sure. I don't care about the details. Whatever they might be. Infidelities, arguments, even MOST threats doesn't constitute a stabbing.

What a freaking JOKE! If you or I stabbed someone, WE or at least I would be held on a million dollar bond for an ATTEMPTED MURDER charge.

I so sick of this joke of a freaking country. It's so called "institutions" anyways. You can get away with anything and everything in this country if you got the cash! Is this what Democracy means? I for one think not!

Pampered Millionaires turn into morally defunct retards, but hey, it's all good if you got the MONEY! Look at Michael Jackson, or OJ. Here, I'll throw in a white guy so I don't offend anyone. Roman Polanski(Sharon Tates widower/husband). He was having sex with a 13 year girl. Yeah, 13 year olds are so hot. What a fukking sicko! It's all good though, as long as you got that MONEY.

We're ALL going to hell in a hand basket. Turns out the Crucifixion was a waste of time. This country doesn't need forgiveness, it's way to late for that.

We're on the highway to hell Baby, you might as well enjoy the ride.

I WAS TOLD ...MALLET IS OF JEFF IRELAND'S DRAFT BOARD DUE TO THE MARSHALL STORY .

I've said it before and I'll say it again, you don't want too many trouble makers on your team. Marshall is in that 'trouble-maker' category. I was willing to turn the other cheek and give this guy the benefit of the doubt with Marshall but it's pretty obvious that trouble will continue to follow this guy. Defend him all you want guys but as Armando said, 'Somebodies wife doesn't just wake up and decide they want to stab their husband'. Marshall has provoked her in some way. They've had an incident in the past and he had several incidents in the past with an ex-girlfriend. The hits just keep on coming with this guy.

The team should be looking into the idea of getting rid of him for a pick or two. You mark my words guys, this guy will continue to have problems, to the point that he will have ZERO trade value. Get rid of him soon, while we can still get something for him.

Crucify me all you want for the comments now but just watch what happens and remember what I said. Get rid of him when we can, so that he doesn't become a BIG distraction for this team.

Instand Karma....I read your whole post....I process information rather quickly.....

Clearly you you mis-read my post....so I will re-post the 1st line ONLY......

Wow Instant Karma....what a GIGANTIC waste of your time...

YOUR....is the key word in that sentence.....YOUR...meaning YOU....and not me.....

Wow. Signing on and seeing the blog title 'The Brandon Marshall stabbing' was a shocker, did a double take on that.

I looked at that contract information. If its true, I can see how that puts Ireland in a dilemma. There are reasonable arguments to keep him or cut him. It's also a dilemma that Ireland can't even talk to Marshall to get his side of the story. Really bad timing. It also might affect how Ireland handles the draft now.

KARMA,

TO RUN WITH LAW ONCE IS TOO MUCH MY FRIEND ..HOW WE KNOW WHAT YOUR TELLING US IS TRUE,YOU SOUND LOW LIFE ENOUGH TO GRAND SUCH AN HONOR TO HAVE A FEW RUNS WITH LAW .

Odinseye,

IF THEY RELEASE MARSHALL, WE COME EVER CLOSER TO THE 5-11 OR LESS 2011 SEASON YOU MADE. RIGHT? LOL...............

michael,
don't count me in on that bunch. when i was hearing rumours the fins were looking at signing marshall is said, "no way they are going to take someone like him. he's too immature." when they did i gave him the benefit of the doubt after watching some interviews. i even cut him slack with his dropped passes and the cutler incident. i'm still giving him the benefit of the doubt in this incident. like the old saying goes, "give him enough rope and he'll hang himself." i'm just waiting to see how everything plays out. however, i will not be the one who says, "i told you so."

ox80,,


this is not the time to talk, DOLPHIN'S IMAGE IS BAD ENOUGH AND THIS IS A CHANCE TO PLISH IT AND SAVE ROSS 38 MILLION ...

THE Q IS ,WOULD THEY KEEP HIM FOR 2011 FOR 15 MILLION SINCE WE HAVE NO BODY ELSE ?

ALOCO,

NO I HAVENT BEEN DRUNK THE PAST 3 DAYS. I DO NOT DRINK. JUST POSTING FACT HAVING IRELAND/SPARANO LIKE HAVING BABOONS IN CHARGE.

POLISH IT

Haha Kris, you've already wasted more than the 3 seconds I took to post that.

Aloco, you got me. I'm on death row at the federal penitentiary, just killing some time on the blog today. But if running in with the law once is too much, why is it not too much for Marshall?

I think rather than changing Ireland's draft strategy it might change his strategy for FA. For example, does he look to add a Vincent Jackson or a Santonio Holmes in FA? I don't don't know how he or us fans can be comfortable thinking all is good and Marshall is going to be our number one receiver for years to come. The guy is probably within an eyelash of a four game suspension and after that God knows.

Instant Karma.....

Your not even making sense anymore....once the debate/argument reaches the stage of pure gibberish from the opposing view.....

Thats when I say...Good day to you sir!

Aloco, what did you mean - this is not the time to talk? Everybodys talking. Regardless of the facts in this case, I think it puts Ireland in a tough situation, it may even be Ross that makes the call one way or the other on this.

DONT YOU GUYS SEE IT? EACH PASSING DECISION AND EACH PASSING SEASON BY THE BABOONS MOVE US MORE BACKWARDS THAN FORWARD.

MARSHALL WILL BE RELEASED AND WE WIN JUST ENOUGH GAMES TO MISS OUT ON 2012 1ST OVERALL PICK(ANDREW LUCK). 2012 WE PICK 2ND-3RD OVERALL.

INSTANT JARMA..........


WE ALL KNOW WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT MARSHALL ...BUT DON'T EVER KICK A GUY WHILE HE'S DOWN,BE NICE AND GRACEFUL TOWAD HIM ,HE COULD BEEN DEAD ,BUT THANK GOD HE'S NOT.......DON'T BE LIKE A HEYNA AS ARMANDO IS .

I know he won't be there but I have to now think that if Julio Jones is there at 15 he becomes our pick. I think there's probably less than a 2 per cent chance he's there but I think WR in the first jumps to the top on the list if he's there. How long can we feel comfortable with a time bomb like Marshall as ou top WR option. This team is going to get burned and soon by him....watch!

Ox80,


i meant no time for talking re marshall contract , THEY ALREADY LEAKED THAT INFO ABOUT THE CONTRACT TO MIKE FLORIO SO FANS KNOW ABOUT IT AND EXCPECT MARSHALL TO BE GONE....THIS IS NOT AN IRELAND DECISION ,IT'S MIKE DEE AND ROSS TO SAVE THE DOLPHINS THE MEDIA ATTENATION AND 38 MILLION DOLLARS .

yikes!

2011= 4-12

I CAN SEE THINGS........ I SEE SPARANO AND IRELAND FIRED BY END OF THE YEAR .

I POSTED YESTERDAY THE SUNAMI'S COMING. BUT MANY ACCUSED ME OF 3 DAY DRUNK!

BABOONS IRELAND/SPARANO WILL FALL FROM TREE AND DROWN.

ALOCO,

SO YOU TO SEE THE SUNAMI AS IT APPROACHES. LOL..........

OK DB,

PROVE TO US YOU R NOT DRUNK AND POST AS YOU USE TO ....PROVE IT AND THE WAY YOU TALK HAS TO BE AS THE OLD WAY ALSO ..LET SEE ////

BABY BABOON IRELAND/SPARANO MADE WILL NEVER LEARN TO PEEL BANANA.

Craig M said 'it's pretty obvious that trouble will continue to follow this guy.' It's kind of hard to argue with that in the sense its hard to believe this latest incident will be the last.


If they release Marshall, the downside is, besides not having our best receiver, it gives Henne and Sparano a built in excuse for 2011.

Well, how do you People see this affecting Miami's picks in the Draft?

ALOCO,

MANY POSTERS HERE HATE ME FOR POSTING RESEARCHED FACTS. THEY LOVE POOP STAINED OPINIONS FROM OUT OF THEIR A*SSES.

FACTS MAKE MANY ENEMIES HERE. I SHALL KEEP THEM FOR MYSELF. GOOD BOOKS SAYS NEVER THROW PEARLS TO SWINE. THEY WILL TRAMPLE THEM IN MUD.

0x80,

You probably know me as the eternal optimist on here but I'm starting to move towards your thinking of 4-12 for 2011. this is VERY discouraging!!

I don't know how much of this is Marshall's fault and how much is his wives. Obviously there is no excuse for stabbing someone but we don't know what might have caused this. Is she a complete nutbar or was it self-defense. It might be a while before any of the details come out but the bottom line is this is not good for Marshall or the team and it's not the kind of stuff we want to see from our leaders.

BABOONS PANIC. TRADE UP FOR JULIO JONES. JONES HAS CAREER ENDING KNEE INJURY AND NEVER PLAYS A REGULAR SEASON DOWN.

BABOONS IRELAND/SPARANO FALLS FROM TREE.

NO ONE BELIEVE ME WHEN I POSTED SUNAMI IS COMING LAST NIGHT. THEY SAY IM ON 3 DAY DRUNK.

BUT ALL WILL SEE BABOONS IRELAND/SPARANO FALL FROM TREE.

BREAKING....... B.MARSHALL HAD A DEFENSIVE INJURES TO BOTH OF HIS HANDS TRYING TI PROTECT HIMSELF FROM THE KNIFE ...........

BABY BABOON WILL NEVER LEARN TO PEEL BANANA. LORD PELICAN PARCELLS DROP BABY BABOON ON HEAD FROM HIGH IN SKY.

BRAIN DAMAGED BABY BABOON CAN NEVER LEARN TO PEEL BANANA. BABOONS SPARANO AND IRELAND WILL FALL FROM TREE.

Ugh

Unfortunately the reason some people are so successful can be the same reason they don't do well outside of a structured environment.

I wish the best for Brandon and hope he can somehow turn things around before the season starts. I would rather have a productive reciever on our roster then blown 2 #2 draft picks just to release him.

PFT REPORTING THAT B.MARSHALL HAS WOUNDS ON BOTH HANDS TRYING TO DEFEND HIMSELF FROM HIS WIFE ATTAK WITH THE KNIFE .

I'm no C Henne fan but ....

I wonder how BMarsh would like it if Henne Twittered something like:

"I hope the Dolphins draft a smart, mature, go to WR with the #15 pk...?"

I curse the day we drafted BMarsh.
I never wanted him in Mia because of this precisely.

BABOONS IRELAND/SPARANO FEED BABY BABOON MAMA BABOON MILK. BABY BABOON STILL NOT OPEN EYES.

It all started a week ago when the Harold reported that Marshall, due to the lock out, he inn the article said that he wont be able to trade in his 2008 Jaguar for a brand spanking new one.

This pissed off his wife who thought that when she suckered him into marriage, I mean looked into his big dollar sign eyes, I mean when she lovingly knew from the first time she set eyes on his bank account... i mean. Well... You know... She thought he was going to spend all his loot on luxury toys, etc for her but instead, the frugal Marshall is actually doing what other NFL millionaires should do which is budget their millions and think next time before they fall for a gold digger.

Credit Marshall for trying to save and hide his stash $$$ from Barrack Obama who wants to take his millions away...

LET'S ALL OF US PRAY FOR B.MARSHALL ,NOT THAT YOUR PRAYERS WOULD ANSWERED BUT DO IT ANY WAY ....

SUNAMI WAVE JUST OFF SHORE. WHEN HIT LAND WILL BE MUCH WORSE. BABOONS IRELAND/SPARANO WILL FALL FROM TREE. EVEN GROUND WILL NOT SAVE THE BABOONS.

Sports Illustrated recently reviewed the murder of Denver Broncos teammate Darrent Williams on New Year's Day, 2007. The in-depth narrative called Marshall the shooter's target and depicted him as an evasive witness.

Much of his issues stem from relationships with women.

An ESPN investigation for "Outside the Lines" in 2009 found Marshall had been involved in seven cases of alleged domestic violence in three states and Puerto Rico. The report featured 911 calls from multiple women, arrest reports and mug shots.

ALoco,

From now on out Im speaking in parables so the swine will not trample the pearls.

ALOCO,

LET US PRAY FOR REBUILDING AFTER SUNAMI WAVE THAT IS SURE TO HIT. LET US PRAY NO MORE BABOONS IN CHARGE.

A WET LEAF IN LIGHT THIRST AFTER DRY. A WET LEAF IN DARKNESS THIRST AFTER MOLD.

Craig M, actually my latest prediction after the schedule came out was 7-9, but I very well may have made earier posts predicting a worse finish.

You know what, sometimes these things are a blessing in disguise, because of a top player going out, someone rises suddenly rises up. Hofstedler/Simms, Brady/Bledsoe, Austin/Owens.

The thing is, with Marshall we don't need to address WR in this draft, its a lesser priority, without Marshal, now we need RB, TE, and WR...makes it tough.

A NEW POT WITH NO FOOD TO TOW CAN ALSO BE A PLACE FOR FLOWERS TO GROW.

The cba also is a blessing in disguise, because now they don't have to make a quick decision, if its true they have until 30 days after the season starts. This gives them flexibility to see what they can do in FA before deciding on Marshall. Imagine if there were no cba issue, they have been in a bigger bind.

Instant Karma,

That's a misnomer for sure. It should read Instant Bullshyt!

Seriously!

Rapelesbeger rapes two women. Gets suspended for 6 measly weeks or was it reduced to FOUR?

What did Marshall do? Does Michi have any black eyes? Nope! Does she have any bruising? Nope!

So ah, lets see......Hmmmmm, he did get Stabbed. Wow! I'll betcha Goodell really lets him have it.

As far as lying too the Police? That too will be overlooked simply because you can't be charged with a crime when you have what the legal system calls diminished capacity and severe duress.

I think Marshall qualifies under the law simply because the statements were made shortly after having be involved in an altercation in which HE was the victim of a stabbing you dolt. He did have a gash in his abdomen and WAS losing blood.

I just LOVE it when people run their mouth and have NO FRICKING hint or clue of what their talking about.

So I guess the Dolphins will waive him and Goodell will suspend him because he was stabbed. I'll bet the penalties will be even more severe because he actually tried to stick up for his own wife while losing blood from a gut shot! ROTFLMAO!

Have a Happy Holiday and do us ALL a favor and sober up before posting again. At least I hope it's the alcohol, because DUDE, you're obviously suffering from some "TYPE" of diminished capacity yourself!
