So Brandon Marshall of the NFL Miami Dolphins, formerly of the Denver Broncos, gets stabbed in the stomach, hospitalized, receives surgery and is now the victim.

Not so fast, my friend

According to CBS SPORTS, in 2007, he was arrested for domestic violence against his girlfriend at the time, Rasheeda Watley.  Well, of course those charges were dropped and he had to complete some anger management classes.  A year later, he was accused of battery again and was acquitted.

Later, a civil suit was fired by Watley, and Marshall tried to have the suit dismissed last week. Fortunately, this was denied, and he was ordered to give dispositions most likely next week.

Once again, he is involved in yet ANOTHER domestic dispute, this time with current wife Michi Nogami-Marshall, who claims her actions were in self-defense.

Oh yeah, by the way, in 2009, Marshall was arrested on disorderly conduct charges after he and his then girlfriend Nogami were seen by police punching and kicking each other.  Same girl, same fight.

When asked about his past recently by the Miami Herald, Marshall said: "I'm trying hard to get past it, but it's hard to do that when everyone keeps bringing it up, dredging up bad memories. Those things happened so long ago, they're history. Yes, I've bumped my head in the past. But I learned from it, and I have fixed it. I'm at peace now. I'm on track, and I don't think anyone can derail me."

Really, dude?!  You really have no clue, do you?!  It seems either you have really bad choices in women, or you seriously have issues. There is NO way that this many incidents are just pure coincidence.  The truth will come out about what happened this past Friday night.  

At that point he needs to be arrested, finally convicted and put in some place where he can be someone's female whipping post.
