You can't have a player get away with this...cause if you do, then other players will do the same not expecting any kind of punishment. You give players an inch and they will surely use a mile.

The jealousy the NFL has for the Patriots is embarrassing to them and the rest of the league, and even I can't stand the Patriots or Brady. Like Andrew Luck said, Brady could of been throwing a bar of soap that day and it wouldn't have mattered.
The phone was needed in the investigation though. There were reports of his texts and all of a sudden his phone including his SIM card were smashed? Sounds fishy. All he needed to do was say "I told them to set the balls low and they were too low with the game conditions. Instead, he forced the NFL's hand with the entitled crap he pulls all the time. Brady is good but his attitude is what I hate.

Brady Says NFL Manufactured Phone Controversy With No Evidence - Bloomberg Business

Brady claims that he only destroyed the phone after investigators got the information they needed. It seems very believable as even the Wells report had texts from him and his ball boys.

Didn't he turn over "certain" texts and phone numbers which he contacted? (reminds me of the Hillary email mess).

If you don't have something to hide, you produce everything. Overwhelm them with exonerating information.

Don't' produce things, except selectively...and in Brady's case, destroy the evidence ( I guess Hillary did the same thing) and the specter of "you are hiding something" comes into play.

Brady will be toast in the court room: Destroying Evidence does not go down well with Judges.

The whole things is just dumb beyond words. Could have solved it with "I told them to keep the balls soft, but didn't expect they would really underinflate them. I am truly sorry." Fine would have been $25,000 and it would have been over.

Instead, we spend Millions to perpetuate the "cheating" mantra that seems to follow New England and Brady wherever they go. It has become a race to see who can be the bigger jerk: Brady or Goodell.

I always wondered this myself. Why don't the refs control the balls?

Seems to me that there are still some things left in the world which assumes that people are naturally honest.

It's not the first time deflated balls were used. I think a Lions-Bears game a few years back had the same problem, only the refs noticed it before hand.

I really hope he appeals this and keeps it front page news for 4-5 months and then is suspended for the final 4 weeks of the season or post season (obviously not a Pats fan).

Maybe he could get the same lawyer as his buddy, Aaron Hernandez, might get the team discount.
Totally agree. I even wonder if the Seahawks had simply won the darn game if this would still be getting as much traction as it is...
