You know what is ironic, that you are so supportive of the Patriots as Saints fan and here is why. Many owners were very upset with the slap on the wrist the Patriots received for "Spygate". Many of them felt it was do to Goodell and Kraft's well documented friendship. So when "Bountygate" happened, Goodell handed out a very tough punishment to the Saints, in an attempt to redeem himself to the other owners for botching "Spygate". Basically, while the Saints screwed up, they suffered for the Patriots sins and probably would have been handed a much lighter punishment had "Spygate" never happened or had been handled correctly.
As far as "Deflategate" was concerned, I felt it was a much lesser offense than "Spygate" or "Bountygate", but once again the owners put a lot of pressure on Goodell in this situation. Also, let's remember, the owners are Goodell's boss, if he upsets most of them, he's done and he has a pretty good job. Once again, Goodell's friendship with Kraft came up, a man whose house he went to for a party after the Patriots won the AFC Championship in the same year. The other owner's had enough and sent a message, you can either pick Kraft or us. They expected a tough decision, and once again this comes back to "Spygate", the Patriots messed up again, Goodell had a chance to redeem himself with the other owners and he did.
So if you really want to cry about "Bountygate" and "Deflategate", it all goes back to Goodell mishandling "Spygate", "losing" the tapes and botching the whole situation.
Also, as far as "Suck for Luck", I've heard the conspiracy theories, but has anyone proved it? Did any solid evidence come out? BTW, you know why the NBA has a lottery draft? To discourage teams from tanking their season.
