Brandon Marshall wants an apology

Brandon Marshall AP

The lawyer for Bears receiver Brandon Marshall said last week that he has been cleared of any wrongdoing after he was accused of punching a woman outside a New York City nightclub. But Marshall says he wants one more thing before he moves on: An apology.

Marshall told Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times that he believes the woman owes it to him to publicly say she’s sorry.

I’m really disappointed that it happened,” Marshall said. “In every situation, you have to look at how you contributed to that situation. But she publicly went out and accused me of these things, and I felt she should have publicly apologized for what she did. She saw an opportunity — maybe a financial opportunity — and it just didn’t work out because of the surveillance cameras that were there. I’ve worked hard to change some things in my life, but I can’t have things like that happen.”

The accuser, Christin Myles, said in March that she wanted Marshall held criminally accountable but has not spoken publicly since Marshall’s lawyer said he had been cleared.

    And Drew Brees wants an explanation.

    Marshall sure is emotional for yet another run-in with the law over something that may or may not have happened….But where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

    and here comes brandon marshall wants an apology, drew brees needs an explanation, and tiki is flabbergasted LAME

    I’d be more interested in an apology from all the people that jumped down his throat and instantly assumed he was guilty of all wrong-doing before he ever had a chance to prove his innocence.

    His past may not look good, but he did all the right things in this case and it’s unlikely anyone will give him credit.

    A agree with Marshall – In fact if she did lie, he should sue her.

    first you appologise to use for sucking so bad stone hands.

  7. hpeters77 says: May 23, 2012 12:14 PM

    Your right

  8. nikesparq says: May 23, 2012 12:15 PM

    Honestly I would want one too; we all work hard for our reputation, something like that could derail it all.

  9. jj73cuda says: May 23, 2012 12:15 PM

    With what YOU bring to the table(past) …you’ve got a long wait!

  10. dukemarc says: May 23, 2012 12:17 PM

    Brandon, be happy your bi-polar behind isn’t in jail right now. I wouldn’t be surprised if a civil suit comes from your “apology” grandstanding. You claimed she wanted a financial gain but they filed criminal charges against you.

    I’m sure Darrent Williams’ family wants an apology as well seeing as how his death was a result of Brandon Marshall’s selfishness

  12. danpit2 says: May 23, 2012 12:30 PM

    Wants an apology? Get over it, that is life. Be a man and move on

  13. medialovesthecowboys says: May 23, 2012 12:33 PM

    He should turn around and clean her out financially for defamation.

  14. jrock3x8 says: May 23, 2012 12:34 PM

    dude, you were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    leave well enough alone and MOVE. ON.

    And Drew Brees wants an explanation.

    You and the rest of your “Drew Brees wants an explanation” buddies are idiots who lack the ability to have original thoughts.

    There’s your explanation.

  16. m2karateman says: May 23, 2012 12:39 PM

    I don’t recall hearing him apologize for the stuff he’s done in the past. Maybe he should just move on and be thankful he was cleared of the charges.

  17. playin2x says: May 23, 2012 12:42 PM

    @cali49er707

    Ur right .. Tiki barber is flabbergasted

  18. fcs34 says: May 23, 2012 12:44 PM

    The Dolphins should apologize for being so incredibly incompetent. I want to thank this chick for helping us get a pro bowl reciever for next to nothing.

  19. dcbassguy says: May 23, 2012 12:45 PM

    If he really feels he was treated unfairly, and that the claims were false, he could easily counter sue for liable and for damages. Forget the apology, and sue her. Then everyone will know who was wrong.

    1.) He has Borderline Personality Disorder. He’s not Bi-Polar.
    2.) Civil and criminal penalties are different, and she could gain financially from a separate CIVIL suit, before or after a criminal penalty.
    3.) Criminal charges WEREN’T FILED. Hence, the “cleared of all wrong-doing–no charges filed”.

    At least you spelled his name correctly, though.

    We have a new reset… BRANDON MARSHALL WANTS AN APOLOGY… I love it! Maybe we should combine all reseta to: WAFE=wants apology flabergasted explanation

  22. greenbay4ever says: May 23, 2012 12:54 PM

    I think it’s OK to assume the worst with this guy. I am sure at some point we will be hearing his name in the news and not because of the things he has done on the field.

    Just a matter of time before he implodes.

    I ain’t sayin she’s a gold digger, but…

  24. stceast55 says: May 23, 2012 1:29 PM

    LEAVE BRANDON ALONE WAHHH!!!!!!!!!!

  25. sactownbear says: May 23, 2012 1:49 PM

    The Dolphins want an apology to go with the lowly two third-round picks they took for the pro bowl MVP.

  26. comeonnowguys says: May 23, 2012 2:15 PM

    “stceast55 says: May 23, 2012 1:29 PM

    I love this.

    I bet you jumped on him as soon as it was first reported, and now that you’ve been proven absolutely wrong, well… Marshall’s a crybaby.

    Lovely little reality you’ve built for yourself. What color is the sky?

  27. sillyv6 says: May 23, 2012 3:21 PM

    Thank you Miami for over reacting and basically giving him to us.

    Bear Down!

    You ain’t sayin’ she’s a gold digger, but…I am.

    @ m2karateman:

    Marshall’s past – which he has owned up to, and is working to help others with BPD – is irrelevant here…The woman lied, and owes him an apology, period. And one to the NYPD as well, for wasting their time and resources.

  30. larryboodry says: May 23, 2012 4:07 PM

    @ greenbay4ever:

    So…Johnny Jolly only had to serve six months of a six-year sentence…What’s up with that?

  31. larryboodry says: May 23, 2012 4:10 PM

    @ zerophocus…I’m with you, and with those who say Marshall should sue the ‘lady’ who falsely accused and slandered him.

  32. larryboodry says: May 23, 2012 4:14 PM

    @ brennankm46…Once again, you have written my reply for me…Thank you.

  33. george3246 says: May 23, 2012 5:41 PM

    Good for Brandon that he didn’t allow himself to be victimized by just another typical, classless gold digging c*nt that every young pro athlete has to avoid like the plague.

    Hopefully, the rookie orientation includes this threat as one of the main topics.

    No i never thought it was true because i know brandon marshall doesn’t punch women he open palm slaps them.
    Besides Im a Bears fan so i would take no satisfaction in “jumping on him” i just thought my comment would be funny. But apparently not. Meh.

  35. Bearfan54 says: May 24, 2012 12:55 AM

    Just keep your mouth shut and move on. No telling what might happen if you keep bringing it up.

  36. maazzzz says: May 24, 2012 8:48 AM

    he’s just another NFL punk. Grow up Brandon.
