Broncos WR Brandon Marshall sat in on the sizzling griddle that was an ESPN show Sunday morning. ESPN's "Outside The Lines" had just finished a report that rehashed his domestic violence incidents with former girlfriend Rasheeda Watley. "I would like to say again, I never put my hand on Rasheeda Watley," Marshall said. The segment reviewed Marshall's numerous police-related incidents with Watley, who said she had first become his girlfriend 12 years ago, when they were both 13 years old. The report portrayed Watley as the victim of domestic violence and Marshall as an abuser. It played several 911 recordings of a hysterical Watley. It interviewed Watley, who often spoke through tears, and her parents, Clarence and Vienna Watley. Marshall was interviewed live after the taped report. While the Watleys were questioned about the details of the domestic incidents, ESPN did not ask them about two attorney-drafted letters that sought $500,000 from Marshall in one and $100,000 in the other. ESPN did report Watley's money request in exchange for not pressing charges. "It's evident that this is clearly about money," Marshall said.
