Brady suspended four games, Pats fined and docked two draft picks (Mega Merge)

Recommended Posts

Good for the Steelers, Bills, and the Jaguars. They get to play against a Brady-less NE team, while the Colts, who brought up the deflated balls to the NFL, get to play against Tom Brady a NE team looking for blood.

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

If he doesn't miss any games, there will be an uproar.

Systematic Cheating.  

  

Been doing it for years.  

 

Just glad to see they held the organization responsible too.  

That's why I said "If it's ever able to be proven..."  but we agree

I think the overall penalties are about right,  but I would've given Brady 6 games instead of 4.

 

He would've gotten 4 games for the competitive advantage rule and he would've gotten another 2 for NOT cooperating with the NFL.     His lack of cooperation is part of the reason this investigation took as long as it did.

 

I'll add this last thought...........  Colts better be ready for their game with New England.   It will have a HUGE tv audience and if the Pats could put up 100 points against us,  they absolutely will.     They could have 75 points by half and Brady will come back out to play.....

 

This will be the pay-back game of all pay-back games..........  :hide:           :peek:

Do you not think the appeal will happen before pre-season?

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

Not so...according to this.

After numerous instances of cheating his hand had to be forced

The Patriots organization should lose picks. As I've maintained this is bigger than Brady. I'm surprised BB & Kraft didn't get suspended as well. Lucky them.

There's always something for people to uproar about. I still can't believe Tagliabue overturned the Bountygate player suspensions. He basically said 'yeah, they did this, but the punishment seems too harsh and I'm not authorized to reduce it, so let's just get rid of it altogether.' So who knows what will happen with the Brady appeal...

I think we underestimated how seriously the NFL took this.

Bravo, NFL.

So while it is a $1 million fine for the organization, they will still save $882,353 on the penalty deal???

that's funny...

why do you insist on speaking for everyone?  By the way, Bill's job is about winning games...this may have helped them win games.  I have no idea if he was involved or not but it's not completely out of the realm of possibility that he at the very least was aware.

Yes.....I;m sure it will be soon...The NFLPA defends druggies..wife beaters and child beaters....and they do ti as soon as ther case is closed

 

They will wail long and hard (and quickly)  for Tom Brady

Brady gets a 4 game suspension. 

 

BRADY SUSPENDED; PATS DOCKED $1M, PICKS

Tom Brady has been suspended four games, and the Patriots will forfeit a first-round pick in 2016 and a fourth-round pick in 2017. New England was also hit with a $1 million fine.

Okay, now somebody tell me that they have like 6 1st round picks and this won't

affect them at all.  Sounds just like another time past...  Hopefully not!

Its just not the job of an NFL cioach to check the footballs befor ethe game or to make sure they are correctly inflated...

You can think so if you want..and you can be upset with me./.....but the investigation cleared belichik...

 

It is out of the realm of possibility in my opinion

Who knows? The Bountygate suspensions were announced in March, and they weren't overturned until December. Meantime, all the players were still on the field, and wound up doing zero time.

Ok, he's been suspended 4 games. We can all now move on with our lives and thank the random number generator for finally spitting out the number of games he would be suspended.

Noticed and I really could not care any less. He was going to return sooner or later.

Little different deal here. I think he appeals and it goes down to 2 games. He might not choose to make a huge issue as it might just be an appeal and go to an arbitrator. Likey would end up at 2...

That seems like common sense, but I don't know. The Bountygate deal made zero sense at the end of the day.

I'm no happy with the amount of games he was suspended but whatever it's fine. Also *In before the Patriot fan club predicts that Brady and co. score 100 points against Indy.*

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

 

no 1 draft pick was fair - The penalties are well deserved with the prior history taken into consideration as well as the organizations lack of cooperation .

You can make that arguement........that's a good point

 

 But an NFL head coach doesnt deal with the footballs....the quarterback does..

   the investigation cleared Belichik..  So I praise the investigation and the penalty on its face and I dont think they were wrong on Belichik
