Birdman ‘excused’ indefinitely

Nuggets center, Chris Andersen, was excused indefinitely from the team today in light of a raid performed on his house Thursday morning by Douglas County sheriffs seeking information on an Internet crimes against children investigation.

Not much is known at this point in time. Details are sure to emerge as times passes. What we do know is that this is just about the worst time for these issues to surface, yet Birdman is still innocent until proven guilty. Obviously things don’t look good, at all, but it’s important to refrain from jumping straight to conclusions until more information is gathered.

    Hopefully, Bird was just doing “research” like Pete Townshend.

      Multiple parties have access to the electronic devices in his home. It is extremely difficult to prove who used said devices, and come on nuggets nation! Stand by the bird. Innocent until proven guilty. Someone doesn’t just become a pedophile over night. He is cooperating with officials fully and don’t expect an indictment any time soon.

        Overnight? The news says the investigation has been going on since February and is multi-state. Sounds a little more serious….

    “excused”, not suspended. Big difference.

    Nuggets don’t need the distraction; Birdman probably needs the time to mount some kind of defense.

    Nuggets aren’t acknowledging Birdman has done anything wrong here.

    Yet Hill has been charged with choking a woman and has played the whole series. Good ol classy la.

    I thought Karl might be limiting him because of some sort of problems off-court . . . damn it Andersen, this town used to love you.

    I guess Kobe has been rubbing-off on birdman, pun intended. Maybe that’s why he’s now sick to his stomache…

    Regarding the search of Denver’s Chris Andersen’s home Denverpost writer Benjamin Hockman reminds us of the Birdman has multiple roommates also living in his home access to the homes electronic devices. . Don’t jump to conclusions
