Lol at goodell getting fired. Here's the 2 questions nfl owners care about

Are we dominating the ratings?

Are we bringing in billions?

That's it. As long as they're fine on those fronts they could care less.

No one will care if you don't watch - a week from today when New England raises their 4th banner the ratings will be just fine.
Ayuh.

All realize that the judges decision had nothing to do with whether he did it and was all about the process the NFL took. The judge even alluded that evidence would suggest he did it but the point of this was all about the process being illegal

Correct.

The NFL, having shot itself in the foot with all six rounds in the revolver, has noticed that four toes remain.

So it's pausing to reload...

Yeah...try again...

Judge Berman pretty much came right out and said the NFL had NO evidence to support their contention that Brady did anything wrong...

Good luck with Tim Tebow this year

I have absolutely zero interest in American Football, but I am aware of Brady.

I have to say it - theres something about that guy that CREEPS ME OUT.

Regardless of the outcome of Deflategate, the real losers in this mess are the fans, who thought all along that all the teams were playing with he same footballs all along. Now we know that they were able to legally under inflate or over inflate within the guidelines, and now we have to wonder if they sometimes exceeded the limits. We also found out that the teams used their own balls on offense after they had a chance to scuff them up to their quarterback's specifications. They still do hat after all of this came out.

What's next? Does the home team's groundskeepers loosen the turf in parts of the field, with the quarterback knowing to avoid taking plays into that area?

Deflate gate should have never been possible. The game would have more integrity if the quarterbacks/teams never touched the football until after the first kickoff, and both teams drew their balls from the same bag.

Did they do the same thing in college? Now I have to wonder about that, too! Did some quarterbacks get into the NFL because they used their own balls modified to their specifications so they could excel?

I feel cheated because I am a football fan.
