Federal Judge, Richard Berman, has reversed Tom Brady’s four-game suspension for Deflategate. Move over, Raider legend and NFL nemesis, Al Davis. Tom Brady is the latest to beat the NFL in court. Who will be next?
Le’Veon Bell, Martavis Bryant, Legarrette Blount, et al., please appeal your suspensions. The inmates run the crooked asylum called the NFL. Roger Goodell can’t suspend someone on a bogus rule that he created that empowers him to exact punishment for conduct that he deems to be detrimental to the league. Tom Brady destroyed his personal phone and didn’t cooperate with the Deflategate investigation. Nothing sticks to him. Can Goodell survive his latest humiliation?
Forget about deflated balls. The Cheatriots get away with all their transgressions. Their most monumental victories come shrouded with controversy: The Tuck Rule, SpyGate and Snowplow Gate. As former WWE wrestling star, Jessie, “The Body” Ventura said, “Win if you can, lose if you must, but always cheat.” The Cheatriots embody that mantra.
Paul Horner, the former Patriots ball boy got fired for his actions. Take a peek at his words. “I was the one deflating footballs, not Tom Brady. I just wanted the team I love to win. Suspend me, not Brady.” Talk about taking one for the team! How much did they pay him?
As Cris Carter said once said, “Get yourself a fall guy. One who knows his role?” Brady heeded that pearl of wisdom. The Patriots organization paid a million-dollar fine and forfeited draft picks but Tom claims total innocence. Really?
September 10th, Week One for the NFL, Tom Brady’s star will shine brightly in the NFL constellation. The entire organization will get their over-inflated championship rings. Roger Goodell never intended for Tom Brady to miss that game, the most-watched contest of the season other than the Superbowl. Not many fans want to watch Jerry Garappolo play QB for the Patriots in place of the cheater. #GetMoney.
