Colts part ways with repeat offender LaVon Brazill

Brazill AP

The Colts know when to take advantage of news cover.

So they dumped the bad stuff, and LaVon Brazill on Friday afternoon when everyone was otherwise occupied.

The team announced they signed wide receiver Aaron Burks and waived Brazill, who was suspended for a year for his latest violation of the substance abuse policy.

It’s certainly not a show of compassion and forgiveness, the kind of thoughts that were common for pill-addict owner Jim Irsay.

Speaking of Irsay, we haven’t heard anything from the league on him.

It’s early yet.

    That organization is embarrassing the whole league

    With a crowded WR / TE group, there was little room for error at the bottom of the depth chart.

    Brazill had some flashes and will get picked up somewhere but probably isn’t much more than a rotation #3 or 4 WR, maybe a KR.

    Will they cut the owner too?

  4. bucrightoff says: Jul 11, 2014 3:11 PM

    I think Irsay should have a drink and some vicodin to celebrate.

    Owner Greater than Player

    LaVon Brazill is what on his third strike now.

    Isray never has been in trouble before.

    Get real you can not compare the two.

    “It’s certainly not a show of compassion and forgiveness, the kind of thoughts that were common for pill-addict owner Jim Irsay”

    Well gee Darin, lets look at the facts. Irsay is the OWNER who got busted ONE time. The other is a part time player who got busted THREE times. Are you really trying to compare the 2?

    Not a happy week for Brazil(l).

  8. bleedrangerblue says: Jul 11, 2014 3:35 PM

    Nice. Lol.

  9. orivar says: Jul 11, 2014 3:37 PM

    It pays to be an owner.

  10. logicalvoicesays says: Jul 11, 2014 3:38 PM

    In Germany they spell it Brazilllllll. With 7 Ls. #Rimshot

    Irsay is a rich man who is addicted to narcotics. Brazill might have smoked a joint (up to) 4 weeks ago (very, very stupid of him). You can’t compare the two.

  12. sarcasm says: Jul 11, 2014 3:46 PM

    If they get rid of their owner they might half as classy as they think they already are.

  13. sfsugator says: Jul 11, 2014 3:47 PM

    Brazil gets in trouble for a little ganja, that’s lame if you ask me. Its not like he was drunk and on pills driving around town getting ready to blast some little kids on the sidewalk, double standard.

    Instead of continuously throwing around snarky suggestions of unequal treatment between Colts owner Jim Irsay and other players who’ve been suspended (as required under the rules of the CBA), how about declaring what you would like to see the league do to discipline Irsay and why.

  16. xbam1 says: Jul 11, 2014 4:23 PM

    i like your jab at the hypocrisy! The NFL is so full of it!

  17. dynasonic says: Jul 11, 2014 4:26 PM

    You people kill me. Is football the one area in life where you expect complete fairness in regards to the suoer rich? Really? So I guess that you spend your weekends lobbying against the CEO of Nestlé for killing hundreds of babies in Africa with his baby formula scam? Or maybe you are too busy chaining yourselves to the doors of Bank of America and Chase for sending our economy down the toilet? That would all probably get in the way of protesting outside of Dick Cheyney’s house for helping push us into a war in Iraq to punish terrorists that came from Saudi Arabia… Get a life and get pissy about something that matters.

    If this was a Patriot receiver, there would be about 200 negative comments by now.

  19. coffeeblack95616 says: Jul 11, 2014 4:50 PM

    A player being dropped for substance abuse because they have a year ban makes sense. The owner of the team isn’t going to cut himself. The comparison is stupid. The player will provide nothing for a year (and didn’t do much last season outside of one good game); the owner provides the paycheck for the team.

  20. jmblosser82 says: Jul 11, 2014 4:55 PM

    kingmj4891, the point isn’t if Irsay is on his first or tenth strike. The issue is player punishments come swiftly but Irsay got into trouble how many months ago. Anything Irsay gets will be a slap on the wrist compared to what a player would get.

  21. uglydingo says: Jul 11, 2014 5:04 PM

    Good to see that the Colts are taking a tougher stance on substance abuse.

  22. calhounlambeau says: Jul 11, 2014 5:25 PM

    Logical Voice, that was a pretty epic comment, man.

  23. guiness17 says: Jul 11, 2014 5:29 PM

    Ya, ya, 3rd offense (or 4th, whatever) vs 1st offense. Question is, what rules will the league go by?

    The policy does state “This Policy applies to all players…” so it does not necessarily apply to owners at all, and really, there is no legal reason it would. But it will be interesting to see how, if at all, it is applied, and if Irsay will be entered into the program in stage 1.

    That’s because players are bound by the rules of the CBA — that the players agreed to through their team’s NFLPA representatives.

    Owners are not union members and are not subject to the same disciplinary measures.

  25. jagsfanugh says: Jul 11, 2014 6:18 PM

    The owner is the ..wait THE OWNER. Geez, you people think life is fair?

  26. txraiderfan says: Jul 11, 2014 8:19 PM

    “If this was a Patriot receiver, there would be about 200 negative comments by now.”
    Yes, and then the refs would throw a flag for “mean talk”– 3o yard penalty and no reviews!

  27. TheDPR says: Jul 11, 2014 8:20 PM

    Just because we all know life isn’t fair doesn’t mean we shouldn’t point out unfairness or work to make things more fair.

    Yeah, there’s the CBA that the players agreed to and the owners aren’t bound by it legally.

    That doesn’t mean owners are above criticism or that we shouldn’t discuss changes to the league in order to hold owners to higher standards or to point out the inherent hypocrisy in the entire system.

    The only thing futbol has over football is No TV Timeouts.

  29. horsepedlr says: Jul 11, 2014 9:56 PM

    irsay went to reab for a couple of weeks. he’s all better now. eye roll

  30. billsfan1 says: Jul 11, 2014 10:48 PM

    If this were the Pats, the test results would have been destroyed.. lets be honest about this..

  31. coachbeck says: Jul 12, 2014 1:03 AM

    Lol you guys and your fairness. This is a business and despite what the players or nflpa they aren’t “partners”

    When They chuck down billions to own a team then they will.

  32. gmsalpha says: Jul 12, 2014 1:29 AM

    Fair or not, this guy is an idiot. You are one of the VERY few human beings who were able to get a spot on an NFL team, and you’re paid millions to do so. Millions!

    If you can’t stay clean when that kind of money is at stake, you need help.

    I will never understand how smoking pot or taking steroids or anything of the sort is worth losing an opportunity that a lot of guys would give their first born for.

  33. armycolts25 says: Jul 12, 2014 4:36 AM

    Well the CBA is what it is and the players fall under it and the owners don’t. Brazill is a fringe player, a sixth round pick who had many chances and the smart business move was to release the guy. Trying to compare Irsay to Brazill is dumb..one is a CBA issue and the other is a law issue. Mr. Smith from the 49ers and Ray Rice have not been punished, last I checked they were players. Irsay is a good owner who cares about his team and the city, should he be punished..yes. But get off the crap of equal treatment. Brazill lost his job but he’s not going to jail, drug test are a way of life for lots of people, he made a choice and failed to follow the contract HE SIGNED.
