As before it did not make a difference in the outcome of the AFCG, But the question will arise how many games were close enough during last season and it did make a difference in the final score

Brady refused to give the investigators his phone

From what I understood from Steve Wyche others in the organization tried to drag their feet

Oh, by the way, we're back to "everyone does this" in the NFL media. That's what irritates me the most.

Punishment will be handed down. No way possible this just goes away with a slap on the wrist.

Tick tick tick. :explode:

I'm just happy Ryan Grigson and our organization isn't going to be hated on now. Initially, we were being hated on by Pats fans by over-exaggerating or possibly even passing off the one ball we intercepted as the only one being low on the PSI scale. It's good to know Ryan Grigson was right to report this.

"Brady’s name is mentioned 378 times in the Deflategate report. By contrast, Bill Belichick’s name is mentioned 32 times."

Ironic how this comes after the draft in which they won't be penalized for this upcoming season..

Grigson and the organization will be hated on for this. It will be totally unjustified, but it will happen.

I never understood that kind of "justification".  So if everyone breaks the law, it would be ok because everyone is doing it?

 This is Goodell we're talking about. I hope he does just slap them on the wrist and it eventually leads to the ousting of Goodell. He should have been gone already anyway.

In that other thread you locked earlier, the tweets said something to the effect of "Colts fans will not be happy" and suggested the Colts will be the ones getting into trouble

Still reading through the "report" but much is just speculative and circumstantial so I am not sure what punishment would come of this. I think the text messages are the most damning part for the Pats. Not to mention the ball pressure measurements. As most of said from the beginning, it is very hard to prove ball tampering but the NFL can punish for just the appearance ...

Really?  Maybe one piece of evidence on its own wouldn't be enough.  But the total body of evidence taken together makes it pretty conclusive, as the report says.

There is one difference

Everyone pushes the envelope to get an advantage but once they get caught they admit their mistakes and stop

Maybe just the opposite.... He could be and should be applauded for blowing the whistle.

LOL. It's not a "report." It's a report. Stop it.

 

And it's not speculative. Much of it is circumstantial. There's nothing wrong with circumstantial evidence.

unless the nfl suspends BB for the year, this doesnt fix anything

I think if they suspend Brady for obviously lying of his involvement and knowledge of what was going on would hurt them pretty bad as well.

Don't bother wasting your time trying to convince a certain poster that the Patriots have done something wrong.

For me it was the refusal to give up a phone

Anyone remember what Ladanian Tomlinson said a few years ago? Something like "the Patriots believe 'if you're not cheating, you're not trying'"? He said it as a joke, but it holds true

Admitting Brady cheated doesn't make you a bad fan.

He can forget that apology from the league .

I said this before but Kraft's speech before the Super Bowl had little to do with the league or this "report" but was given to focus the team on winning the Super Bowl. His endorsement back them was huge for the team to focus on Seattle. It was maybe his best speech from the standpoint of rallying the team. I don't think he was ever truly demanding or wanting an apology even if the report had exonerated the Pats.

If the cops walk in on you with a dead body with stab wounds all over it and you are holding a bloody knife. . . They can't PROVE that you stabbed that guy.  

 

But the circumstantial evidence in totality tells the whole story.

And it's not speculative. Much of it is circumstantial. There's nothing wrong with circumstantial evidence.

Circumstantial evidence is hearing a weather report calling for overnight rain, waking up to find everything outside soaked and concluding it rained.

What's funny is that they won. It looks even worse for the league with everyone knowing you've crowned a cheater

Yes. Rodger handing that trophy to Kraft was better than any apology ... haha

Biggest question remains...

 

What punishment(if any) is handed down? If they don't come down hard...the league looks like they support blatant cheating and cover ups.  I think something will happen to TB, but what....

I love how even though it's a widely reputable lawyer and a thorough investigation against your team, it's just a "report", the quotations are necessary lmao
