    What I read is very positive. Attorneys for Brady state that he was given four hours to present his case and they took almost 10 hours to finish. The word is that Brady's representatives presented a " more »

    It doesn't make any difference to the team. The monetary fine and the loss of draft picks were accepted by the Patriots organization.  I will be surprised if Tom Brady litigates this issue with the NF more »

    By accepting the punishment the Patriots essentially admitted their guilt. Face it, the balls were tampered with by Patriots employees. That part is over and the decision sticks. Kraft did not have to more »
