However, I hear so many people poo-pooing the "crime" as not being a big deal.

In a bit of irony since Brady was suspended 4 games without pay it will save the Patriots 1.8 million in salary. They were fined 1 million which means they'll end up making an extra $800,000. I...

Give me a break. It wasn't a scientific study and shouldn't be held up to those standards. That's why the findings were "more probable than not" and why it wasn't a true "sting" like a lot of...

Not for me. In my mind Brady is still one of the best QB's ever to play the game and Belichick is one of the best coaches of all time. Then again, I'm on record here as being in favor of PED's as...

Yes, that's why I don't think it was a "sting". It was more of just an alert to be aware of this possibility.

I read this whole post and all I can say is it reads like just a bunch of Boston homer BS. I could spend time poking holes in his arguments and I may do that later when I have more time.

Not Goodell. I was thinking more of Brady or Belichick ordering the code red to those two equipment managers to deflate the footballs.
