Watch: Von Miller tells what really happened with the Halloween party – 104.3 The Fan

Was Von Miller traded because of the funding for a Halloween party?
It’s a question that will go down in Denver Broncos lore. The star linebacker, who won the MVP for Super Bowl 50, opened up to Mile Silver of The Volume about the legendary night that caused a rift in the locker room.

Miller said he hosted a halloween party in the past that he paid for but there was some controversy with it.
He said the year after his teammates wanted to pitch in but he didn’t want to party if the team was losing.
Miller said he put down the deposit waiting for his peers to pay him back. When his teammates didn’t show up to the party they didn’t pay. Miller said it wasn’t about the money but the principle of it.
Miller said the despite was over $1,500.
At the time of the trade, this was reported:
“A source with direct knowledge of the situation tells PFN that Miller became upset when teammates declined to kick in for his annual Halloween party. It’s a massive affair with a six-figure price tag. This year, it featured Quavo from the hip-hop act Migos.”
“Miller’s request for financial help came as a surprise to his teammates. They had assumed they were invited guests to the party, not co-hosts. Miller even wanted rookies to contribute several thousand dollars for an event that they had no role in planning.”
“Miller, who has earned over $90 million in his career, threatened to disrupt the Broncos’ locker room chemistry over what in his mind was an unpaid debt, the source tells PFN. We’re also told coach Vic Fangio and general manager George Paton became aware of the rift. That may have factored into the team’s decision to move on from the eight-time Pro Bowler despite the Broncos sitting just a half-game out of the AFC’s seventh seed.”
Miller was traded to Los Angeles where he won his second Super Bowl with the Rams. Then Miller signed with Buffalo this offseason.
The party rumors surfaced a day after the news of the November trade.
