    Walker asked to apologize for spitting

    Broncos wide receiver Javon Walker was asked by team officials to apologize for spitting water on a team cheerleader during the Broncos' 9-6 win Sept. 17 against the Kansas City Chiefs at Invesco Field at Mile High.

    Broncos officials said Friday the matter had been "handled internally."

    Several fans witnessed the incident, as well as some of the team's cheerleaders. Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, executive vice president of business operations Joe Ellis and coach Mike Shanahan all were made aware of the incident last week.

    Walker and the cheerleader met the day after the game when Walker apologized. He is not expected to face any other discipline.

    Walker could not be reached for comment Friday with the Broncos players having been given a four-day weekend because of the team's bye Sunday. Walker's agent, Kennard McGuire, did not return a call seeking comment.

    Teresa Shear, the team's director of cheerleaders and game-day entertainment, also could not be reached for comment.

    Walker is believed to have taken a drink from a water bottle after a second-half timeout. As the cheerleaders were finishing a routine and Walker was going back onto the field, the wide receiver turned and spit out the water, hitting one of the cheerleaders. It is not clear whether it was intentional.

    The Broncos learned of the incident from team employees and from several fans.

    Walker, who scored two touchdowns Sunday at New England, is in his first season with the Broncos after an April trade. The Broncos sent a second-round pick in the draft to the Green Bay Packers for Walker, who then signed a five-year contract extension in Denver that could be worth $40 million over the life of the deal.

              Snk's age has nothing to do with this.

              In fact, he much more mature and "grown up" than many on here.

                    I don't know what good or bad spelling has to do with commenting on one's age.

                    I also don't understand someone just joining a message board, then immediately
                    proceeding to issue directives.

                    Anyway, I think he was only kidding with Snk.

                    So all this is :offtopic:

                    I don't think it would hurt Javon to apologize. Intentional or not, an occasional good
                    dose of humility doesn't hurt anybody.

                        I've been very impressed with Javon since he became a Bronco. So I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and say the action was unintentional. I have a bit of trouble with it because the article said he was "asked" to apologize. I would have rather had him volunteer an apology once he learned he might have offended a cheerleader.

                          I'm a little shocked by the responses in this thread. If it was a player on a another team, we'd all be bashing him and saying how classless that guy is lol

                            That reminds me that I never posted what I thought about it

                            I do appreciate that he apologized, but if it was intentional, he deserves a little more than a slap on the wrist.

                              Maybe he was just getting even for her spitting on him earlier??????
