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.

AFTER THE REVEALING OF THE INFO ABOUT MARSHALL'S CONTRACT.ROSS TURNED THE DOLPHINS FROM FAT PAYROLL TEAM TO LEAN AND MEAN PAYROLL TEAM .

0x80,

Yes, if FA had already come and gone and we hadn't looked at the WR spot we might have been in trouble. Now we have some time to figure out what we want to do and can act accordingly. In essence, if they chose, they could sign a top WR in FA and wack Marshall, as long as it's within thirty days of the start of the new season. It could just be that the lockout was a good thing for us after all.

BEFORE THE LIGHT THERE WAS DARKNESS. DARKNESS ANNOUNCES THE COMING OF LIGHT.

IN TOTAL DARKNESS NOTHING CAN BE FOUND. BUT FRET NOT, DARKNESS IS ONLY WHEN LIGHT BEDS DOWN AND RESTS HER CROWN.

THAT'S RIGHT GRAIG M @ 4;10 PM .

I WOULD RATER TALK ABOUT IGANAS AND POPSICKLES THAN THIS IT IS STUPID.

0x80/Aloco, Craig M too...(I think)

What leads you guys to believe that Marshall will be CUT.....I mean how did you guys cross that bridge already.....

How did you even find that bridge......

The headline was.......Marshall was cut.......stabbed...

Not Marshall gets cut.....released

WE MUST DRAFT LORD PELICAN! ONLY LORD PELICAN CAN RESTORE GLORY TO THE MIAMI DOLPHINS!

MY DRAFT:

ROUND 1) LORD PELICAN
ROUND 2-7) PLAYERS WHO WILL OBEY LORD PELICAN

Armondo you are an idiot. Nothing else needs to be said. The more I read your columns the dumber I feel. Thank you for wasting another five minutes of my life.

GREATEST COLLEGE PLAYER: LORD PELICAN

DESTINED FOR HALL OF FAME: LORD PELICAN

WILL HAVE AIRPORTS NAMED AFTER HIM: LORD PELICAN

DRAFT LORD PELICAN!!!

KRIS,

WE UNDERSTAND BUT THE LEAKEAD INFO TO MIKE FLORIO ABOUT HIS CONTRACT WAS LEAKED AFTER THE STORY BROKE ABOUT FEW HOURS....


WHY TODAY ?
why noW ?................ i can't believe they kEEP HIMTO BRING MORE BADE NEWS TO THE TEAM ,THEY WILL GIVE HIM THE 3 MILLION AND MOVE FORWARD .


PS....THERE'S INJURES TO THE HANDS WHICH I HOPE IT'S MINOR BUT WE DON'T KNOW HOW THAT WILL AFFECT HIM.

kris,

We won't agree on this, so it's OK. I haven't said he will be cut nor have I decided that would be the best option. However, you've got to wonder about a guy that has trouble follow him as much as Marshall. The Dolphins have an option that if they decide to go that route within the first 30 days of the new season it will cost them a FRACTION of what his full contrct would be. It's certainly worth considering.

My preference is to ride this out and keep in the back of our minds that this is a guy we will want to move at some point. It's just not going to work out kris. At some point he's going to cost the team as a player who will be suspended. It will start out as a four gamer and eventually be a full season. Is this who you want to tie your wagon to? I don't think it is.

DID I SAY THAT IRELAND HAS MOVED MALLET OF HIS DRAFTING BOARD ?

Ireland and company will have a decision to make shortly. Keep him and continue to put up with the headaches and try and save face or realize it was a mistake, cut our losses and realize we made another mistake giving up the two second round picks. We're not there yet but there will be a decision to be made. It will be interesting to see how much input Ross has in this because at the end of the dday it's Ross' money.

Two brothers co-owned a cow. In this cow the drank plentiful milk.

The days came and went until it was the youngest brother birthday. The eldest brother say to him we will celebrate you in feast. Name it what you shall have and it will be so.

The younger brother ponders tne answers: "I know instead of milk we will have our cow for meat. The elder brother says, "To anything I promised you shall have to your feast. Then very reluctantly elder brothers agrees.

Now there is no more milk or butter to be had in all the land. An entire village profitted from the milk of the two brothers single cow.

OH, GREAT AND WISE LORD PELICAN WE ASK THY GUIDANCE.

COMETH TO MIAMI AND RESTORETH OUR TEAM. LAY YOUR HEALING WINGS ACROSS OUR FRANCHISE...RAISE YOUR BEAK SKYWARD!

Kris,

I've only suggested that since trouble seems to follow this guy, whether its his fault or not, they may reconsider the situation. No doubt getting the factual details of this incident may sway their decision one way or the other. You have to admit this guy does have a long history of altercations that just keeps on going.

Had this been during regular season, even being 100% innocent, it would have the team. When you are a high paid athlete you do have the added burden of considering how the consequences of your actions affect your team as well. If (and I do say IF) there was any way he could have handled this situation in a way to keep her calmer and to not have stabbed him, it was his responsibility to do so in the interest of the team that is paying him millions. Just things to consider.

*would have 'hurt' the team (above)

"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."

Too bad he dont have a quarterback(Chad Henne), who can get him the d*mn ball.

0x80,

Totally agree with your above post. The management has some other things to consider now, on top of everything else. The question that none of us now know, does they alter their draft plans in any way. I don't think it does but it's food for thought.

One other thing I'll throw out there...and again likely get criticized for....does this changes any thoughts they might have had in drafting Mallett. I don't believe he's been their target for awhile now but if he had been, can we really afford another 'question mark' on this team. With the possibility that we may need to replace Marshall at some point now too, does it become any more important that we get our 1st round pick right?....I'm just asking the question.

TOLD YOU GUYS THE SUNAMI APPROACHES. NOW WE ALL OF SUDDEN HAVE AN IDIOT CALLING HIMSELF BWANA PRAYING TO LORD PELLICAN TO RESTORE THE FRANCHISE. AN UMBRELLA ISNT GOING TO BREAK THIS SUNAMI!

MALLET IS OFF IRELAND'S DRAFTING BOARD AS OF TODAY ........

AFTER READING BWANA'S PRAYERS TO LORD PELICAN. IM NEAR READY TO GIVE UP BEING A FIN FAN ALL TOGETHER. MAYBE ALL THE CONFIRMATION WE NEED THE FRANCHISE'S CURSED.

Assuming, no, not assuming, it's a fact that BM has played his last game as a Dolphin then we need a WR in the Draft(forget those two up there, jones, other).

DOLFANS MEET YOUR NEWEST DETROIT LIONS.

Trying to now guess how this will alter their draft plans would be futile. Just guessing their current intentions is already speculative enough. One would think 5 days until show time they'd just go with your original plan, yet if a BPA just happens to be a wide out they just may give it a little more thought.

We have no idea what they think of this latest altercation. They may see it as a snow flake or an earthquake.

WITH THE BABOONS IN CHARGE IT SEEMS EVRY YEAR OFFSEASON NEEDS INCREASES INSTEAD OF DECREASES.

EVEN WEARING AQUA/ORANGE SUN GLASSES DOLPHANS SHOULD SEE THAT.

You sure never see lesbian couples stabbing each other or acting like circus animals.

Lesbians are our greatest citizens. Hardworking, wealthy, educated, and creative. I only wish there were more of them.

0x80,

Would you take Jones, with everything you now know, if he's still there at 15? Keep in mind we have lots of other needs.

Would you grab Jones at 15 and chop Marshall? I don't think there's a chance Jones will be there, just asking the question.

As I stated in my parrable, all profitted from the cow's milk. So it would be foolish to have the cow for meat not. The team already has enough unaddressed problems.

This is the last of my parrables I will interpret for you's. Still the baboons will fall from the tree. LOL.........

When Marshall's lifestyle affects his on the field play. Then seek trade. Even if taking far less from him.

Belichik got a 3rd rd'er for Moss. It's far too early for rash decisions.

#15 is a very high price to pay for seeing footballs coughed up all over the playing field(Taiwan Jones). Guy runs sub 4.3 40yd dash and we're ready to hand over farm for him with none serious fumble issues.

Craig M means Julio Jones I think. I'd say he would be a fine pick at 15 if he fell yes.

known serious fumble issues

0x80 and Craig M....

You guys have both almost answered in unision.....while I disagree with your assesments....I thank you both for the answer.....

Yup, lets trade up for Julio, leaving both issues present unaddressed and give up draft picks to force us not to be able to address future issues.

The baboons do this and you'll fully understand why they fall from tree(fired).

I dont even understand why Marshall's wife's mugshot is posted here. What, is the league going to suspend her for 4 games on the detrimental conduct policy?

There was totally no need whatsoever for her jailhouse mugshot to appear here. Story? Maybe yes. Mugshot? Hell no, we dont need to know what she looks like.

MARSHALL=CANCER! Get rid of this bumb and his ugly knife wielding wife!

Im wondering had Marshall and his wife been white. Would her mugshot appear all over the place then. We clearly live in a very biased society.

fake gm,

What a "bum" you seem to be mispelling "bum" as "bumb". LOL............

DB, Craig merely suggested the hypothetical if Julio Jones fell to 15, knowing its highly unlikely. Trade up was not part of the equation.

fake gm,

Im sure some would consider Marshall has a beautiful wife. Do you see her as ugly because she is black?

Aloco.....I see where your comming from....and whoever leaked the info on his contract clearly did it with dubious intentions.....probably just for the purposes to keep people talking.....

I doubt Marshall gets cut or traded....at least not on the information available

I see Mrs. Marshall as a very attractive black woman. Fake GM I would have her any day over your ugly mug! LOL.................

Iwould take Mrs. Marshall over Fake GM's ugly mug any day even if she eventually killed me! LOL............

If Mrs. Marshall were an attractive white woman. Many of you would be posting, "Wow, she can stab me anytime she likes."

Kris,

Fair enough. Just to make an analogy, here is another take on what I meant:

Lets say your are a 50 million dollar wide receiver in a bar. Some AHole comes up trying to provoke a fight with you, don't you think regardless of how much you want to deck the guy you have to take the high road and do everything possible to keep the situation calm or just leave? Out of approx. 400 million people in this country, only about 150 at a time have the priviledge to be WR's in the NFL and make serious coin as well. You have to honor the investment your employer made in you and not miss time do to injury, altercations, suspentions or whatever. When you have already established a long history of altercations, you greatly decrease how much your boss will tolerate.

Now in this case, who knows what really happened. If she charged him unexpectedly in sudden suprise that is one thing, but if they were fighting and things were escalating, then I think he had to start thinking about the investment made in him, the team, and find a way to tone down the fighting or leave the house, especially considering his history.

Anyway, thats my take. Not going to elaborate any more on that. We'll agree to disagree this time around.

Dont worry Mrs Marshall, you pretty and attractive thing you. You can stab me anytime you like and I'll make myself like it!

There you have it, IM white and I said it. So what you crackers gonna do about it. Im a cracker too. LOL................

DB,
you're barking up the wrong tree with tawain jones. he hasn't fumbled the ball once in his college career. 2nd, who is advocating taking him at #15?

Just for kicks,looking over the supposed 2nd tier of WR's(Torrey, Titus, Henkerson) none of them impress me as immediate starters(titus too small). Just in case.

The word has it that Vince Young is bipolar. OK, not as bad as those delinquents but very difficult to control. We don't need that.

it's true. vince young was diagnosed with bipolar disorder some time ago. don't know exactly when but it is true that he was seeing a therapist for treatment and was taking medication. bipolar disorder is not easy to control and is something that can make it very difficult for a person to function normally. i feel for the guy in that respect.

I congratulate S.Ross for bringing back Ireland, Sparano, etc.. These are the guys responsible minus Parcells for trading away draft picks for a trouble player,and this will not be the last time w/Marshalls and the women around him... This is the reason why the Dolphins are the 4th best team in the AFC East !!!

Did you have to make the picture of her so big? I wanted to stab myself!

At least he can catch a knife !!!

Marshal is a Dolphin. A good organization will stand behind and help him and his wife however it can.

Hopefully they could benefit from some anger management training.

Making Marshal feel a part of this organization is important. He is elite at his position. The Dolphins have already invested 2 2nd round draft picks.

Lets quit talking about dealing Marshal and start talking about him as centerpiece of a dynamic, aggressive passing attack.
