Josh Brown has “nothing to say” about domestic violence arrest

After hitting the game-winning field goal on Sunday, Giants kicker Josh Brown said he won’t address his domestic violence arrest, which got him suspended for Week One.

“I have nothing to say about it — literally nothing,’’ he said. “It was a single moment, an act. My family and I have addressed these issues long before anybody else ever found out or talked about it. My family and I have moved on. My concern is my children and that’s it.’’

Brown referred to it as “a single moment,” but there were actually two incidents that got police involved: The initial complaint by his ex-wife in which Brown was arrested, and a later incident in which police said Brown violated the restraining order she had against him. And Brown’s ex-wife told police he was violent with her 20 times.

But when Brown previously addressed the matter he called it “just a moment,” and when he was asked on Sunday if he regrets his previous comments, he answered, “No, not one thing.’’

The NFL has still not explained why Brown was only suspended one game.

    His spouse was asked the question later and said the exact same thing, only adding he beat me to it.

    He’s not suspended longer because we don’t have a video. Apparently that’s what it takes in today’s NFL.

    In a state where only the DA, with a judge’s review and agreement, can decide not to pursue domestic violence charges none were brought due to insufficient evidence. That in spite of it not being a he said/she said since her 16 year old son lived with them and she claimed 20 other non reported incidents. A suspension happy league hit him with one game. The team took the PR hit that goes with keeping him for a kicker, there’s always another kicker. The restraining order violation was for driving down the street they lived on. Just a thought but maybe all the silence from the police, the DA, her son, the league, the team and Brown himself has more to do with protecting Mrs. Brown than it does with covering for him.

    It’s a good thing brown didn’t mess with the balls instead of assaulting his wife otherwise he’d have gotten 4 games off.

    She should’ve left after the first time, not the 20th.

    Not even a “Thanks, Mr. Mara, for telling Roger Goodell to give me a 1 game suspension when 6 games is the minimum. And thanks to my coach and all my teammates for backing off their ‘No More’ stance on domestic violence.”? Josh Brown is pretty ungrateful.

    Mara and Godell should be the ones that are asked the question.

    how did Mara get Godell to only give a one game suspension?

    Mr Integrity

    1 game for beating up a woman, 4 games for not deflating footballs. thats about right.

  11. toybkshr says: Sep 19, 2016 10:09 AM

    1 Game doesn’t pass the smell test.

    “I have nothing to say about it — literally nothing,’’ he said.

    …and then he goes on to say more than something.

  13. footballboozer says: Sep 19, 2016 10:17 AM

    The RULES state for domestic violence is 6 games.
    He is guilty because he was suspended.
    So, why did GODell pick 1 game?
    Thats right, Mara is pulling the strings.
    This will not be the end of it.
    It will cost Mara his best friends, ya kno, the green ones.

    I don’t blame him for his statement, this happened over a yr ago the charge was dismissed and his family moved on. He has children so why get on national tv to talk about the time you hit their mother with them watching….he served his suspension and moved on….the questions should be asked to the ownership and commissioner on why only 1 game when they have a new policy that says 6 gms for first time offense…

    Nice to see Goodell and Mara have so much INTEGRITY

  16. razzzmajazzz says: Sep 19, 2016 10:36 AM

    It was a single moment more than 20 times. What a scumbag.
