Tampering? 

I am not sure what the tampering rules are but I think tampering only occurs if a FA or his agent meets/talks with a team before they are allowed too. This here is just something the Raiders are saying publicly to the media about a contract and what they would offer.

I'm not sure any more, either, but stuff like this USED to be construed as tampering.

There was actually a report today that he is buying a house in Las Vegas.  Cowherd mentioned it on his show.   Nothing verified of course.  Cowherd also mentioned that Brady and the Patriots have not had contract talks in quite a long time.

There is no tampering because this isn't an official offer from the Raiders. All this is is a tweet that someone has heard that the Raiders are prepared to offer 2 years 60 million. It isn't like the Las Vegas Raiders twitter account said this. Larry Fitzgerald's dad is the one who made the tweet.

The only tampering going on is the media baiting fans. News sells and now with all these free agent QBs and social media exploding, they are selling every story and possibility to the public lol. He isnt leaving NE.

Good reliable sports news used to be what people wanted. Now we are being fed tmz quality news by what should be the most reputable sports information sources. Damn capitalism...

I hope this happens so that I can see who wins better without the other, Belichick or Brady. Brady's ego is in for a shock this off season, no doubt in my mind.

It would be tampering if the team where coming out and saying that we are prepared to offer Tom Brady 2 year -  60 M contract.  Tampering rules pretty much prevent the team from even mentioning the name of another team's player in any context when it comes to acquiring free agents.  

 

That said there are 2 things here. 

 

1. Agents and teams have found a way to skirt tampering rules a lot or at the very least break them without getting caught.

2. This information was posted as a rumor by a media type.  Media types can't be punished for tampering.  I think this is sort of another way that agents for big time free agents and teams can sort of skirt the tampering rules a bit.  A member of the team's staff can let it slip (off the record) that the team is interested in a certain free agent.  Media types often don't name their sources but they can basically print out there that the team is interested.  That allows the player's agent to investigate to find out what they would be offering.  

 

Now if the media type named his source within the team they could be in huge trouble.  At the very least the team would have to claim they are a rouge employee and fire them.  But then again a media type that named his sources would be cut off from future inside info, so they won't name their source and a team rep can continue to feed them information like this with management approving (but obviously never saying they approve.)

 

In a sense this story is likely a indirect way of offering Tom Brady a contract.  

 

The only problem is that Tom Brady isn't very motivated by money and the Raiders really arn't that good.  So I doubt he goes and plays for the Raiders, no matter what they offer.

Not to mention, I don't think he will want to be in the same division as KC and Miller/Chubb.

If he's afraid to face certain other players, he should just retire then.

I'm taking Belichick all day everyday on this one. Pats went 11 - 5 with Cassel starting.

Peyton did the same too, didn't want the NFC, didn't want to play against the Colts twice, so he chose his division wisely in free agency. If I am Brady, why would I leave the AFC West where I can possibly have a 5-1 or 6-0 record every year? That is half way to a bye week seed most years.

Actually, he didnt want to have to play Eli, is why he chose to stay out of the NFC...and as for playing the Colts, he had actually narrowed it down to Denver and Houston and ended up playing the Colts every season that he was in Denver

Yeah, we all knew that about Peyton/Eli and avoiding the NFC. Plus, when you have a gazillion threads about Brady and the Raiders, I have to repeat myself. I laid out all the Peyton reasons here in his free agency decision plus the reasons I felt Brady will not be in the AFC West. Btw, Peyton did not play the Colts in 2012, just 2013, 2014 and 2015.

 

Here, I just quoted it from another thread:

Personally, I think Brady wants to prove he can win without Bill...and wants the records (Peyton is the only starting QB to win a Super Bowl with multiple teams)

He's a little old for proving all that...

    • Surprised to see that not many mentions Kuechly or Wagner as the best 'linebackers ever' conversation. 
    • This whole Chad Kelly phenomenon on this site is fascinating 
    • Anthony Walker. Now or never.
    • Don’t feed the trolls.   We have an ELITE Dt. We have an ELITE Lb.   If the ends can generate a little pressure our D could be lights out. Add in the fact our o-line should be great and produce a strong run game - keep the D fresh.   Bold Prediction - Colts finish with a top 5 D.
    • I'm sorry,  I've said this before,  but I see you added more material here and you've completed misunderstood this.   First,  there are no writers for the on-air talent.   None.   The talent writes what they want to say.   I even contacted a friend who works at ESPN for the last 30 years.   He says all on-air talent writes what they say -- period.   And thre is no company position on various issues.   So, for example, on al the debate shows you talked about,  the hosts say what they want.   No writer writes what to say for them.      Here's what your article is talking about.   The company is clearly on the liberal side.   They've hired in the past a bunch of Conservatives who wanted to say whatever they wanted to say.  Mostly about politics in the real world.   The name Curt Schilling might be familiar.   He had been warned repeatedly about talking about real world politics that have nothing to do with sports.   He kept doing it and basically dared the company to do something.   He thought they wouldn't.   They did and eventually he was let go.      ESPN is trying to stay away as best as they can from real world politics.   If oyu want to point to Conservative political views,  fine, you'll get no argument from me.   SPOILER ALERT:  That's going to take a huge hit on Wednesday, 5/27,  in the aftermath of the dead black man in Minneapolis and the black man in New York who a white woman called the politce on and lied about what he was doing (caught lying on tape), as well as the jogger in Georgia who was shot and killed months ago and the video has now surfaced.  Outraged professional athletes are now loudly speaking out.    That means ESPN is going to talk about the real world even thought most of their viewers may not like it.   But you have to cover what the athletes are doing and saying.   Many people here (most?) think ESPN doesn't like Jim Irsay and the Colts.   Do certain anchors, hosts, reporters have issues with us?    Maybe,  possibly.    But there is no corporate position on Irsay or the Colts.  All on-air talent is free to say whatever they want to say.   No one tells on-air talent what to say when it comes to day-to-day sports.   To be clear,  ESPN doesn't want anyone trashing the sports they cover or hurting the professinal relationships.   If you're going to attack the commissiner of a sport,  then you had better have more than just an opionion.   You better have some substance to back it up.    Former NBA Commish David Stern was legendary for calling up the head of ESPN and SCREAMING about things he heard said about the NBA on ESPN that he didn't like.     You wrote that there's plenty of things on the internet to support your view.   Please feel free to take another crack at it,  because the first article doesn't support your position.    It's taking about something different,  how ESPN doesn't want the real world of politics infringing on the day to day coverage of sports.   Some things can't be stopped.   More women in pro sports.   Gays in sports.   How athletes react to real world injustice.    But if Curt Schilling wants to spew hate about Muslims, which he did,  or talk about transgender bathroom laws,  that's going to lead to the unemployment line, which it did. What do those issues have to do with sports?   Last thought:   I try as often as I can to explain the world of the media to people here.   30 years in the business so I should be able to to.   Frankly,  I take no pleasure in strongly opposing your views here.   In fact, no one is more surprised than me.   Because, quite honestly,  I think you've had an incredibly long stretch of really top notch posts for many months here.    I think you've seriously rasied your game and I find myself in agreement with many of your views.    And if I haven't given you a ton of likes then shame on me.   I try to reward good posting.  I find your posts smart and well reasoned.   I enjoy reading your views.    And then we hit this thread.   And I did a double-take when I saw who posted about the media.  So please take this as the compliment that it is intended.   I'm a fan of yours.   Just not here on this particular subject.   If you have other comments, or questions,  I'm happy to continue this discussion....   my apologies for the length of ths post.   Just so much to respond to.   NCF
