That’s just cold.
The victim of the alleged burglary is Branyan’s ex-wife, Jill Branyan. It is unclear when the two divorced, though as of 14 months ago Russell referred to her as his wife. According to a warrant that was issued for Branyan’s arrest on Oct. 31, he broke into Jill’s house while she was sleeping, stole some things, and ###### with the thermostat. He also acknowledged to a witness that he took the items and wants to return them:
The defendant made entry into the residence of the victim without having the legal authority. The defendant and victim are divorced and the victim is the legal resident. The defendant entered while the victim was asleep and removed various items from the home. The defendant also tampered with the thermostat inside of the home, making it extremely cold. The defendant acknowleded [sic] to the witness that he had removed the items from the residence and now wanted to return them. All events took place in Davidson County Tennessee.
This is not the first time Branyan has been arrested for actions allegedly taken towards Jill. In 2008 he was arrested on domestic violence charges in a Cleveland suburb for allegedly striking her in the face, causing a cut lip, during an argument while driving.

The treatment and intervention part will include the creation of a Joint Policy Board which will be responsible for evaluating a player and supervising the treatment of a player if treatment is deemed appropriate. If the player does not adhere to a treatment program, he will be subject to discipline.
Discipline will not carry a minimum or maximum penalty, but rather the Commissioner can issue the discipline “he believes is appropriate in light of the severity of the conduct.” Discipline will not be contingent on whether the player pleads guilty or is found guilty of a crime. A player can appeal discipline to an arbitration panel. A team cannot discipline a player unless the Commissioner delegates that power to the team.
One small but potentially important part of this is that past discipline, or the lack thereof, for domestic violence cannot be used as a basis of appeal. Likely because there has been no past discipline in any real sense. As such, if Rob Manfred were to hand down a 100 game suspension or something for a first offense under this policy, the basis of the appeal can’t be “well, Milton Bradley didn’t get 100 games.” That should allow Manfred to set a strict discipline regime from the get-go now without worrying about being overturned.
Consolidating discipline with one authority who has full discretion works in the NFL, right?
