DeflateGate: Brady suspension expected (mega merge / updated)

Recommended Posts

Doubt there's anything solid enough for punishment.

 

I can assure you there absolutely WILL BE punishment.

 

The only question is.....    just how much?

 

How big a fine?    Will it include draft picks?

 

I don't see anyone, coach or player,  being suspended.

 

But I think the two guys who did this are going to have be fired....   don't think there's a way around it.

 

Hope the players all chip in to give them a nice "severance" package....

 

But there WILL BE punishment.....   of that, I'm certain!     :thmup:

Tom Brady knew? NO that can't be true lol.  Pats up to their cheating ways again.  I don't think anything will come out of it, all tho a suspension should.

One text message was after the Oct 17, 2014 game with the Jets. Brady was furious the ball had too much air. Many explicits used.

I should add that I'm very surprised that the NFL is releasing the report,  WITHOUT announcing the punishment?!?

 

What's the point of that?

 

I have so little faith in Goodell and the NFL right now....   seems there's no wide-open lay-up that the league won't completely mess up and miss....          :facepalm:

No we need apologies from them all. Considering she wanted Kensil's head on a pike next to Grigson's.

Referee Walt Anderson's inability to locate the game balls at the start of the game (for the first time in nineteen years) and the breach in  standard pre-game procedure when McNally removed the game balls from the Officials Locker Room without the permission of the referee or other game officials.

243 page report and for some odd reason I still could not care any less about this. Oh well.

Whichever Pats fan got on me for coming to a conclusion before the report came out, well, here you go.

 

If they were innocent it would have come out before the draft.

As far as I understand, the report was done independently.  The league had an independent person handle the report.  Then they release the report.  Then they have meetings and discussions for what I think will ultimately be a slap on the wrist

I will bet you they get a slap on the wrist if that.  Brady should be suspended.  That won't happen though. It'd be like the NBA suspending LeBron

Happens all the time?     I don't think so...

 

Professional sports leagues don't do this.....     and I've noticed that NFL.com has not reported this story at all...

 

Which may mean that ESPN has the breaking news based on a leak...   and the NFL is caught off guard and not prepared.

I don't think they can afford to give the Pats a "slap on the wrist.."

 

I also don't think it will go as far as some here want....    but I don't see a slap on the wrist coming at all,  and will be disappointed if that's what the NFL hands down...

I admit I was pretty outspoken about this from the get-go, and it was never a secret what I thought about all of it.

I came to my own personal conclusion after witnessing Brady's joke of a press conference.

Not sure what, if any punishment will be handed down, but I am glad the report is finally in.

No apologies from me on this one.

E. Items of Value Received by Jastremski from Brady

Jastremski also has received various items of value from Brady, including in the

months before the AFC Championship Game. Over the years, Brady has recognized Jastremski

for his work with occasional tips and other gifts. In addition to receiving money from a holiday

pool organized by Patriots players, Jastremski believes that he received a supplemental tip of

$1,500 from Brady during the 2014 holiday season and has received $500 in cash or gift cards

from Brady in previous years.

According to Jastremski, he also received from Brady two tickets to a Los

Angeles Lakers game when Jastremski visited Los Angeles a few years ago. Brady vaguely

90

recalls sending Jastremski “in the right direction” through “a contact of a contact of a contact”

for the Lakers tickets, and said that he may have been able to arrange for the tickets for free.

In addition, Brady provided Jastremski with a particularly noteworthy and

valuable autograph on or about October 5, 2014, following the Patriots game against the

Cincinnati Bengals during which Brady became the sixth quarterback in NFL history to exceed

50,000 career passing yards. In text messages, Jastremski described a ball autographed for him

by Brady after the game as “the ball that was used in the game on the play when he passed” the

50,000 yard mark.

 

 

Brady said he didn't know who Jastremski was...

I only took a really quick read through some of the report.  Was there any mention of Belichick's involvement?  I know they said it was highly likely that Brady was involved, but I haven't read anything about Belichick

I disagree, if they have no evidence that anyone outside these locker room attendants and a player knew about it, then it's hard to do anything.

 

Only thing they could do is try to suspend Brady.

 

And I doubt they would do that for very long.

The point is this was not an NFL investigation. It was an independent investigation. Freeh released his report before NCAA handed down punishment. Wells released his report before the NFL handed down punishment.

 

Don't forget this wasn't on NFL.com until a day or two after the initial report.

    • Willis - the 4th round pick they traded up to get will be lucky to make the 53?  Man that is highly questionable. I’d say he is much closer to a lock to make the roster than be cut prior to opening day. 
    • Well Im back been a long haul , my wife being blind had rotator cuff surgery and been in bad turn at same time so my cups been full.  But look lol the Central is just about where I left it. 162 games tells the story . Cards Cubs Brewers all right there together.
    • Faulk was a great player, but he was never a pure grind out yards type running back. Edge was.   James is a huge part of why the offense exploded in 1999 after we traded Faulk & drafted James. The play action to Edge/ bomb over the top to Harrison was absolutely LETHAL 
    • As you have noticed,  I have taken a long time to respond.   Apologies in advance,  my response is long....   Everything you think I "overstated" I personally think I understated.     And I think all the arguments you used to make a case that the spring is more ideal than the winter is hugely overstated.   Look at the last sentence of your post...    how you describe "looking at the bigger picture and taking your time..."        Says who?      Who says an owner didn't look at the bigger picture in December as a disappointing season was coming to an end and that a decision was rushed?    That's entirely written by you as opinion based on zero known facts.    And it's your interpretation that better decisions can be made in the spring.   Huh?    When it's too late to fire the HC and his staff that gave you the disappointing previous season that got the GM fired in the first place.    Now, your new GM has to deal with a HC and staff that he didn't hire.   Now everyone in the building is walking on pins and neeedles wondering if they'll get fired or be retained.   So,  all the advantages of doing those decisions in winter of Y1 for the new GM,  now have to be done in winter of Y2.     So, if they're going to be done,  how is it better to flush a year down the drain and do it the following year?   I see lots of opinion,  and very little fact.    You've tossed out a number of interesting names that are available now....    nice names and none were in the running for a GM job 5 months ago,  and suddenly you think the next hot GM is in the pile?    I appreciate that Nick Caserio might be the exception to the Patriots rule from the BB tree....    but BB has a poor record of turning out good HC's elsewhere.   He might someday....   but not so far.    Front office is decent I think, so maybe Caserio is good?   But Don't you want to get all of this done sooner than later?    Don't you want to rip the band-aid off ASAP?   Doesn't the new GM want to hire his own guy,  his own staff, ASAP?     And if you think the answer is no,  then why don't all GM's who get hired in January,  do it your way?    Why don't they keep the staff,  the HC,  coordinators and assistants,  all the front office types and the scouts,  and do all the changes the following winter?     Why don't they do that?   They don't,  do they?   I really wish this was just a simple thought experiment.   That you were simply making a case that making a GM change in the spring is do-able and not anythig else.    Some here don't understand when it happens at all in the spring and I've made the argument several times that the spring isn't as bad as you think.    Doable under certain circumstances is perfectly OK.   But you're not doing that.     You're not arguing for doable.   Instead you're arguing for desireable.    And you think it's an easy decision.    I confess that even as your biggest admirer,  perhaps BECAUSE I'm your biggest admirer,  I find this position more than a little head scratching.....   Just saying....      
    • Middleton had a contract that was 4 years or longer and the Bucks have his bird rights. That doesn't apply for Randle and the Pelicans.
