In response to rtuinila's comment:
Oh, I forgot to mention, though I doubt anyone remembers, the Pats were penalized foir the insubordination of ignoring the memo, not for cheating. Goodell was forced (probably by the owners) to appear on national TV and state "the Patriots DID NOT CHEAT". They were being punished for "Ignoring the memo we sent out at the beginning of training camp". And since the Pats did ignore the memo, what is there really to vacate?
if wisdom of prior commissioners were applied, the clarification of the memo would be the concern... not a witch hunt fueled by media. See..? This doesn't happen except for goodell.
First of all thank you for discussing this at least... I'm definitely disappointed with this board not to take up this cause for at least the truth to come out. I don't care about the 1st round pick... Really this is about an activist commissioner disregarding traditions and history as to how to discipline a league of coaches players , teams, owners , changing kickoffs, playoffs, number of games... Nobody gets it.
Second, yeah I understand the difficulty of stomaching people like Hess but that is a minor technicality. This is part of the injustice since goodell was clearly beholden to the hatred and jealousy and political witch hunting , NONE OF WHICH, would ever be admissable in any court as fair since it was based on mistruths.
third, the time is right now when dicktator is slapped down by tagliabue. Kraft needs to get his mojo on and sieze this chance. Do it for myra. do it for his legacy. Stand up for truth and justice... Get the lawyers together and DO IT. Even if it fails and it won't ... He'll be remembered for standing up for truth and the stupid media will be exposed for their lies.
Bottom line is you have to start somewhere to get at the truth of injustice. People can choose to ignore this like, we don't care. But we do care. This is the most egregious injustice in the history of any sports league.
can anyone name another...?
