@RapSheet: NFL: #Patriots QB Tom Brady is suspended without pay for the first four games of 2015 for conduct detrimental to the integrity of the NFL

@RapSheet: #Patriots were fined $1M and will forfeit the first-round selection in 2016 nd the club’s fourth-round selection in the 2017 NFL Draft. Wow.

I was hoping it'd be more. Something equivalent to not being able to play in the Super Bowl.  

  

 

This is what I was expecting though.  

Not to mention, because this has been filed, Brady and the Pats will have an asterisk on last season's SB.

The Brady suspension is fair...and the cash fine is just. ...I think a No,.1 draft chioce is very stiff..actually...

 

The NFL penalzed the player AND the organization. They took this very seriously

Harsher than I imagined

Yeah me too. They were sending a message. Plus Brady not cooperating (turning over his phone) made it worse. You're going to get it anyway but not cooperating makes it worse because that's part of the NFL rules.

Chances are he appeals and serves 2. But the 1st and 4th are very surprising to me. The 4 game suspension is about what I figured

Me too. Brady will haggle down the game total..  But a No.1 pick is a heavy slice

Remember how the NFL was supposedly soft on NE and Goddell was friends with the owner?

 

Not so...according to this.

This is fine if it was only a one game thing - however if it is ever able to be proven this has happened over years then it will need to be readdressed.  At that point a one year suspension would be in order.

He returns for the game against the Colts!

I really hope I don't have a broken TV after that game.  

  

If we lose, it's going to happen.

There's an appeal, and there will be lawyers. Vilma didn't miss any games.

I had the suspension right, but I never guessed draft picks.  I though $500,000 was max, but ther must be another clause that allow 1 million. Never guessed that!

NFL's statement mentions the Club's prior record, the unsatisfactory level of cooperation, and "not fully candid" testimony by Brady and the two stooges.

 

 This is a serious penalty...touching all the 'defendants'

Systematic Cheating.  

  

Been doing it for years.  

 

Just glad to see they held the organization responsible too.

    • NB;   I came into the series thinking Toronto is the better team but the results haven't show that until Tuesday. Brooke Lopez and Niko Mirotic ..George Hill? We love Hill in Indy but he's never done what he's doing for the Bucks.   Marc Gasol is a great player..I dont know why he was so shy and hesitant in the first two games. Player for player..Toronto should be winning
    • And here is the actual NFL draft profile that was alluded to,  but NOT linked.    I'm linking it.   And, Kelly had a solid draftable grade and was called a possible low-level starter.    So, clearly he might also be considered a decent back-up, which is all anyone is talking about here.   Kelly's profile.   Not a first rounder,  but not a camp body either.   Possible Brissett replacement in 2020 if he leaves.   http://www.nfl.com/draft/2017/profiles/chad-kelly?id=2557869
    • The second part is correct(perceived pass threat usually makes opponents send less people in the box and create more advantageous run situations), the first part about having elite RB - I'm not sure about. I mean... sure... if you can just snap your fingers and have an elite RB for the same money and without spending premier assets ... sure... have at it. I'm not sure having elite RB is worth investing big asset(1st... maybe even 2nd round pick? or huge contract). Generally the factors by importance for your run game go something like this:   1. Quality of your OLine run blocking  2. Quality of your pass game   3. Quality of your running back   It's not "not important", but it's probably not worth the capital you need to invest in order to achieve it. 
    • I didn't form my opinion off of someone else's draft profile at NFL.com. I based it off of what I saw on film. And Peyton Manning laid a few eggs in college IIRC.
    • Sucks, but probably for the best honestly. He responded to the trolls and that only keeps them coming back. I wouldn't even have a twitter if I was a professional athlete honestly. Then again I don't have one even as a regular guy. I get actors/actresses having them to promote their brand and because fan popularity is so important there, but for athletes it only seems to be a distraction or downfall.
