On Thursday, a plane flew above Patriots training camp with a banner that read “Cheaters Look Up! @JetsFanMedia.”
Tom Brady’s lawsuit against the NFL in which he wants his four-game suspension overturned will be heard in New York instead of Minnesota.
The more Tom Brady stands his ground, the less honorable he looks. The harder the league presses for its punishment, the more it tears down one of its greatest stars.
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft says he was wrong to trust the NFL in the deflated footballs case and that he regrets not appealing the penalties against the team.
Tom Brady is starting to remind me of George Costanza. And, Alex Rodrguez, too. And, every athlete and politician who has denied heinous accusations in vehement fashion.
The commissioner pointed to concealed evidence. The team described it as a folly. And the agent added sham to the lexicon of “Deflategate.” Then the players’ union said it would take it all to court.
The league announced the decision Tuesday, with Goodell saying that the New England quarterback told an assistant to destroy Brady’s cellphone on or just before March 6.
Could the Deflategate saga be coming to a close with a compromise?
The NFL will play a minimum of two regular-season games a year at Premier League club Tottenham’s new stadium over a 10-year period.
No details of Tuesday’s hearing were immediately available. But an unnamed source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Brady put forward “an A-plus performance.”
If Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s suspension isn’t overturned, the battle could end up going to court. For now, it’s up to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made it official Tuesday: He will hear Tom Brady’s appeal of his four-game suspension.
The union asked Goodell to withdraw from that role because it said he was not impartial and would be called as a witness.
Goodell said he has not had time to study a request from the players’ union that he recuse himself from the appeal because he has been focused on the spring owners meetings that concluded Wednesday.
The NFL hammered Tom Brady for his role in “DeflateGate” for good reason. We can’t have the best players in America’s favorite sport toying with the rules.
