As I said a few days ago, the original report did not change anyone’s mind. If you believed the Patriots cheated, it you agree with the report. If you don’t believe he cheated, you could make swiss cheese due to the number of holes in the investigation.
The penalty today made absolutely no sense. The Patriots had nothing to do with this, but since they were found guilty of something 8 years ago, they lose two picks and $1 million? That makes sense.
Brady..well..I’m a little on the fence on that one. 4 games seems harsh given wife beating is 2 games, smoking pot is 4 and both of those are actually illegal; but there is a little bit of doubt that something happened; I just don’t know if it was a deliberate attempt to break the rules or not.
Either way, I don’t really care anymore. I’m cancelling my DirecTV Sunday Ticket because the sport is a laughing stock one way or another. There are plenty of other sports I can watch: EPL, MLS, MLB, Bundesliga, NHL…I doubt football will miss me. But EA just lost a game buyer.
