Broncos brass to meet Monday to discuss DUI arrests

The Broncos executives who were arrested for DUI are subject to the league’s personal conduct policy.

But punishment from the team seems to be coming before the league has a chance to do anything.

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, Broncos boss John Elway and team president Joe Ellis will meet Monday at the team’s facility — with owner Pat Bowlen on a conference call — to discuss what to do.

The report says personnel men Matt Russell and Tom Heckert “are expected to receive no less than lengthy suspensions and hefty fines.”

When Lions president Tom Lewand was arrested for DUI, he was suspended 30 days (later reduced to 21) and fined $100,000.

And from the anger expressed by Ellis previously, that might be a baseline.

The Broncos know they know have a bigger problem than one arrest would indicate, and the punishment could reflect that.

    Let the courts handle it. Don’t destroy these guys’ lives because they made a mistake.

    Meeting has been postponed until Wednesday. Everyone was hung over from the weekend.

    Hopefully, they won’t be serving Coors Light at this meeting.

    They can have their own 12 step meetings while at work.

    Hopefully they will make their punishments include an alcohol/drug diversion program. Preferably one with a victim’s impact panel where they have to listen to all the ways drunk driving ruins innocent lives and how it could have easily have been them doing it.
