Michael Irvin to prosecutors: “Make a decision, let’s move on”

Prosecutors currently are weighing whether to charge Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irvin with sexual assault. During a Tuesday press conference, Irvin’s lawyer made a passionate plea for prosecutors to decline to pursue the case.

“Doesn’t let another minute go by and clear this man,” Ken Padowitz said, urging prosecutors to consider all of the evidence, which he insists supports “100 percent” that Irvin “is not guilty of these charges, he is innocent.”

Asked how long prosecutors have had the case, Irvin interjected and said, “Too long.” Padowitz, who said he doesn’t know specifically how long prosecutors have been considering the situation, said that he can tell in an hour whether a case has merit.

Padowitz also acknowledged the existence of a pre-existing relationship between Irvin and the alleged victim, saying that “this person was treated like a member of the [Irvin] family.”

“Nothing happened that night,” Irvin said at one point, calling the allegations “heinous” and “false.” The press conference ended with Irvin declaring once again the overriding plea: “Make a decision, let’s move on.”

    This guy is on Boston radio every week during the season and I have to wonder who it is that pays this wannabe preacher to spend 5 minutes rhyming nonsense. Station changer if there ever was one.

    Wonder what all the trolls will say if he is completely cleared? Oh, wait, they will scream conspiracy and pay off, of course. Everything is a conspiracy if everything in your world is lies and you feed off the negative, cat calling, sniveling actions of the weak hearted. (notice I did not say Dump, did not mention the paranoid twat loser simpleton in the White House)

    “Let’s make a decision and move on”. Translation: just pay her off already.

    Access to a plethora of women, but you can’t trust a one of them.

    Pretty sure prosecutors don’t appreciate being told how to proceed with their cases by the potential defendant. If anything this is just going to make them mad and it’s definitely not going to help his cause in any way

    He should have been unavailable to commit this sexual assault, as he should have already been incarcerated for prior drug crimes.

  12. randyschwimmer7 says: Jun 13, 2017 2:55 PM

    He did it.

  13. leroysbutler says: Jun 13, 2017 2:56 PM

    Irvin is and has always been a scumbag.

  14. officialgame says: Jun 13, 2017 2:56 PM

    I have a dog that does the same stupid stuff every day. I named him Playmaker.

  17. therealtrenches says: Jun 13, 2017 3:50 PM

    “Make a decision and let’s move on,” sounds exactly like what a truly repentant man *would* say.

    Said no one…ever.

    How is this man still employed at NFL Network?

  19. araidersfan says: Jun 13, 2017 4:03 PM

    Irvin attacked her because she wouldn’t supply him with crack. But he’s a great role model for Ezekiel Elliott.

  20. kennylc2015 says: Jun 13, 2017 4:18 PM

    Even as a long -time Eagles fan, I am hoping this is not true.

  21. droppedinagreasefire says: Jun 13, 2017 4:26 PM

    Was it move on or “let’s get it on?”

  22. spurtbball says: Jun 13, 2017 4:39 PM

    I hope the NFL Network gets rid of him one way or another!!! drugs got him fired at ESPN, why the NFL Network gave him a job I’ll never understand it!!! There are so many much more talented people out there

  23. httrcat says: Jun 13, 2017 5:00 PM

    Yes Michael let’s move on…….with you and the NFL Network!!!

  24. campcouch says: Jun 13, 2017 5:19 PM

    It isn’t difficult to meet a nice, normal and pleasant looking woman, regardless of status or finances. Yet these guys constantly find themselves in these situations. Find the guys you don’t hear about and they have a commonality…a stable home life,single or married.

    A lot of 90’s Cowboys haters on this site.

  26. 26predator says: Jun 13, 2017 5:38 PM

    I’m in the minority but I find him very entertaining on the NFL Network.
