With the promise of a lawsuit coming this week, Pouncey's attorney, Jeff Ostrow, was quick to strike back, promising his own damned lawsuit.
Just heard from the Pouncey's attorney, Jeff Ostrow, who said the accusations against the players are "lies." Full statement ...— Adam Beasley (@AdamHBeasley) July 16, 2014
Ostrow: "Mike and Maurkice were not involved in any altercation with the accuser or anyone else that night and did nothing wrong. ..."— Adam Beasley (@AdamHBeasley) July 16, 2014
Ostrow, cont: "It appears that the accuser is an opportunist seeking attention and possible financial gain."— Adam Beasley (@AdamHBeasley) July 16, 2014
"Any attempt by the accuser or anyone else to bring an action against them based upon these false allegations will be vigorously defended."— Adam Beasley (@AdamHBeasley) July 16, 2014
Ostrow, concluded: "If the accuser continues to perpetuate these lies, we will bring an action against him."— Adam Beasley (@AdamHBeasley) July 16, 2014
It should be noted, though, that Ostrow has a history of getting out in front of stories. Last year at this time, when his client rocked a "Free Hernandez" hat during a birthday bash at Cameo (sound familiar?), he told Lifestyle Publications there was nothing to see here at all.
"Knowing Mike as well as I do, I am certain he realizes that he exercised poor judgement at his birthday party," Pouncey's long-time friend, and attorney Jeff Ostrow told Lifestyle. "Obviously, the point of the hats was to show loyalty to a friend -- and nothing more. It is not possible that there was any ill will and the photo could not have been intended to hurt or offend anyone. People that know Mike and Maurkice know that they do not have a bad bone in their bodies."
In that same story, angled around Mike Pouncey's desire to be the face of the Miami Dolphins, there's this prescient quote:
"I think the most interesting part of being one of the guys considered the face of the football team is being professional on and off the football field, Pouncey said in June. "The biggest thing about it is that you're the guy that's going to be answering all the questions when the media comes, you're the first guy they see off the bus, you're the guy talking after games. I think that's something that guys, not saying they have a hard time doing it, but it is a workload. I think being the face of a football team is more than just playing football. I think it's about the work you put in off the football field, community service, and how you carry yourself as a human being. And obviously you have to have high character."
We'll continue to update this story as litigation and the police investigation continue.
