What would TB actually gain, especially given the way things were being interpreted by Wells and the League? Aside from the privacy issues presented in this request, there was nothing to be gained by more »

While I understand the situation Kraft was put in by Goodell, I would have preferred if he made a much stronger statement against the punishment and the Wells report when he accepted the punishment. I more »

In response to mthurl's comment: I think it's just a simple matter of Goddell calling Brady's bluff, because he knows Brady probably doesn't want to go to court where he will have to give his cell pho more »

In response to jeffab's comment: I listened to the last 10 minutes of this interview...Polian had no answers for the OBVIOUS flaws and short comings with the Wells report. Laughable - he had no answe more »

I thought "journalism ethics" was an oxymoron?

In response to JohnHannahrulz's comment: Great article from the paper that actually came up with the first -Gate . Some of us have been saying ad nauseum that at worst this deflation infraction merits more »

Aside from the privacy issues presented in this request, there was nothing to be gained by TB complying. He was essentially being put in a situation of proving he didn't do something that never happe more »

In response to the-redsox-rule's comment: This is about the leagues goal of parody in which the Patriots do not cooperate. They used this as a way to take a 1st round draft pick to weaken the in the l more »

In response to soups' comment:
Tough to pursue those charges when Rice's fiancee dropped them.
Posted 05/21/2015 01:01:48 EDT
I'm hoping Brady gets to Court and gets Goodell on the stand under oath. I can just see it now, a Captain Queeg moment: "They were all against, thoroughly disloyal, all of them. Ah, but the missing a more »

Adding further insult to injury, DV charges against Ray Rice have been dismissed.

I load the heavy artillery and keep it hidden. My first move right now is to get Goodell removed as the arbitrator--I do not want him to have a chance to remove the punishment, because once that is d more »

If Borges put the bottle down for a bit, he might stop hearing those voices in his head.

In response to the-redsox-rule's comment: Plus we dont even have a first round draft pick.. With Brady sitting and a much stronger division it could have be a decent pick. This was one of the only th more »

So basically Roger is making certain he is not an impartial arbitrator--he's saying right out loud that he's already made up his mind how he feels about the entire thing.
Posted 05/20/2015 03:44:14 EDT
First, I am disinclined to believe ANYTHING that comes from the League offices or Goodell about any of this. Second, IF the Pats actually did tamper with the balls, the penalty is entirely ridiculou more »
Posted 05/20/2015 12:51:37 EDT
If Goodell is to be the arbitrator, doesn't a meeting like this sort of poison his position as being "impartial"? How can he meet with just one side?
Posted 05/20/2015 10:36:37 EDT
Honestly, I'm not certain that Goodell vacating the TB suspension does anyone any good, except getting TB back right now. If Goodell vacates TB's suspension, we will hear that Pats got away with it, T more »

Perhaps Kraft is looking longer term and is smarter than we give him credit for. I wouldn't be surprised if Kraft is making his own resources (money and connections) available for TB's fight behind th more »
Posted 05/19/2015 05:07:52 EDT
Z--would Kraft have recourse if TB's case ended in Court and a ruling was made that completely tossed the Wells report and it's 'findings" out? Do you think there is a way for Kraft to petition the L more »
Posted 05/19/2015 05:04:53 EDT
And anyone would trust Goodell on this, IF that kind of deal was brokered? Goodell knows that neither one of them can say they made that kind of arrangement, so Goodell can do what he wants. Short of more »

You have to admit it's an interesting scenario if TB's appeal ends up in Court and a Judge specifically rules the report biased and throws the entire thing out finding there was no credible evidence t more »
Posted 05/19/2015 02:33:20 EDT
Things that aren't likely, but could happen: TB works through the appeal and wins, having his entire punishment thrown out. He promptly retires. Kraft has a long-term plan: accept this punishment "f more »

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

If you are going to suffer the slings and arrows of injustice, you might as well sue.
