"Based on the evidence, we also have concluded that it is more probable than not that Tom Brady was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities of [Jim] McNally and [John] Jastremski involving the release of air from Patriots game balls," the report said."

Really? WTF?

But, on the other hand, reports state Brady was not 100% cooperative. He didn't release emails or texts asked for. Hmmm.

If Brady had nothing to hide he would have supplied the texts.

I don't know, would you want someone to have access to all your personal texts and e mails? I would not.

A lot of people will see the asterisk even when it isn't there. Especially the fans of the teams the Pats eliminated from the playoffs in close games, either in the playoffs or the regular season.

They need to fine and suspend Brady. The Colts really got screwed here. They should've went to Super Bowl or at least had a re-match.

I don't know what football planet you're from, but if you think PSI in the footballs made that game so lopsided then you are delusional.

The Colts were manhandled and beaten easily by a better team, PSI or not.

Come on now...the Pats dominated the Colts their last 6-8 meetings I believe. Ain't no deflated balls gonna help the Pats that much. Even Prez Obama said deflated or not...the Pats were gonna win.

Cheating is cheating and now the Pats' image is smeared for stupidity. Maybe, that is punishment enough?

How sad. What kind of a message does this send to young people?

Super bowl winners, not champs; great team; poor leaders!!!

The more I read the report and listen to the media, the lack of anything solid, including those texts, makes this whole thing seem like a cop out to me. Wells was probably paid a lot of money for this investigation by the NFL. IMHO, the wording like "more probable than not" and “We nevertheless believe, based on the totality of the evidence, that it is more probable than not that Brady was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities of McNally and Jastremski.” was Wells at least justifying his work by sort of implicating Brady. No matter how I read this, inconclusive evidence is all I see. I have never seen so much doubt layered on top of doubt.

The court of public opinion is out. Those still stewing with Spygate have no had their tanks refilled. Brady haters now have something they can chew on forever as they were handed a can of tarnish. And anyone who says all teams stretch rules in some way or another will just be deemed homers for the Pats and Brady.

Assumptions by fans on top of assumptions in the report - that's all that has transpired. And now the next move is in the NFL's court. I bet they have to do something since many think Goodell and Kraft sleep together.
