John Elway sticks up for Joe Ellis (and, in turn, for himself)

With the daughter of Broncos owner Pat Bowlen hoping to take control of the franchise in a manner that would seem to run afoul of the meticulous plans made by Bowlen before he relinquished control to a group of trustees, Broncos G.M. and president of football operations John Elway has issued a statement supporting team president and CEO Joe Ellis.

The fact that Ellis and Elway have publicly pushed back against Beth Bowlen Wallace could make their ouster much more likely, if she ever gets in. Ghe fact that they’ve publicly engaged her suggests that they have a high degree of confidence that, if push comes to lawsuit (and it feels like that’s where this is heading), Beth Bowlen Wallace won’t be taking over.

He was released on bail on April 8 under the condition he’d have no contact with Jahzi McCree, following charges of simple assault and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He’s been taken into custody twice more since them, with a warrant on May 2 followed by an arrest on May 12, and a second warrant issued on May 23, the same day as a scheduled hearing.

The only thing that vindicated my name is the fact that I was in custody, he said, explaining that his ex-wife is accusing him of contacting her with phones that are not his. I have one phone, you can search the records.

On May 23, she sent an email to prosecutors saying He just sent me two text messages. McCree was in handcuffs at the time. She sent another email to the prosecutor later in the day saying she spoke too soon.

Other allegations include telling authorities he was stalking her because his phone number popped up on the Bluetooth screen in her vehicle while she was getting gas, though he was filling up at the next pump at the same gas station.
