Why would they mention dinner and a few drinks unless alcohol was relevant to the subsequent incident?

So Payne Haas is being represented by a lawyer who is currently facing charges of money laundering, fraud and numerous drug offences..

Sounds police stuck their sneck in when there was no need for it and Haas told them where to go. His wife is adamant that there was no domestic happening, rather pent up emotions were spilling out.

Yes that is exactly what it says but no domestic does not equal nothing happened. The wording that there were emotions coming out and what happened after won't be discussed is significant.

the same lawyer that has represented Greg Bird and those Titans players caught up in the cocaine scandal a few years ago.

also the lawyer facing his own charges of money laundering.

I'm pretty sure he has also represented many players at judiciary hearings.

Yep, sounds very much like someone the Broncos would be keen to work with.

we're not the only club that works with him ... he works with half the clubs in the league.

besides, Payne Haas can have any lawyer he wants

Paul White tells a different story:

“There’s no excuse or tolerance for that type of behaviour. There’s a big lesson for Payne and he needs to own that but there’s a big lesson for the entire playing group. We’re after actions not words. He was alone and acted alone in this instance and he made a really poor decision."

“He’ll have to suffer the consequences for that. We’re not just jumping straight to what a sanction might look like. We’re looking at what are the opportunities for learning right here and right now. Too many times, you deal with a sanction and think that’s it.”

We had an incident-free pre-season. The players returned from the Christmas break in good shape and things were tracking well with our roster in good shape. Anything like this is a setback and we need to own it as a club. First and foremost, Payne needs to own it. Kevvie (Walters) will be part of that process.”

That is a really odd statement, probably would've been better off just saying nothing and letting everything run its course.
They might be trying to get on top of it before the rumours get too over the top and the European cybercrime experts need to get involved. The first Courier Mail headline insinuated he was in a brawl, and I've seen posts on reddit where people claim without any evidence that he was belting his missus.

They may not be able to talk about it because it's in the courts.

I think all the charges are based on what happened after they approached Haas so they likely can't talk about it outside of the courtroom

Sounds like something happened, going with the sympathy play already. Very carefully worded statement that.
Yep employ a good spin doctor and you can turn a sows ear into a silk purse, why does he feel the need to lawyer up if he's done nothing wrong, I'll bet there is a few people on here that have been through a lot more grief then Payne Haas has gone through in the last 12 months, deal with your issues and get on with it mate
