A few comments....

1. Brady's appeal will absolutely get this suspension busted down by one or two games

2. This is absolutely a case of being punished for the coverup rather than the crime itself.

3. It is laughable as hell that the NFL has under-suspended any numbers of players for any horrible real-world offenses yet Brady getting four games for doing something that probably every QB in the league does.

Shame that Belichick was able to get off. No way you can tell me that a control freak like him didn't know that was going on.


And here's the other side of the argument for Patriot defenders:

It's crap. The NFL has once again turned something fairly simple into a circus. Of course we aren't talking about concussions or domestic violence so maybe that's part of the point.

Whoever has been advising Brady through all this has done an awful job as well. He should have no commented everything. At least he went 37-50 with 4TDs with properly inflated balls against the world's best defense.

I bet he could have gotten under inflated balls by the officials without doctoring them after the fact ... and yes I do think he was probably up to something shady but because of the epic botch job by the NFL I have a hard time with any kind of suspension or loss of draft pick.

Sean Payton gets a ban for a year because "ignorance is no excuse" but five time cheater Billicheck walks away without anything?

I call bullshit.

The AFC East still isn't good, relative to the Patriots. You're telling me we get to see Handsome Jimmy get some real game action for four weeks without Brady getting injured to cause the situation? I'm in.

Also, Ryan Grigson ENJOY THE EIGHT TD PASSES TFB IS GOING TO STICK UP YOUR ASS WHEN HE COMES BACK. I can't wait. I'm giddy.

This. If nothing happened I think the Pats have a good year but have Super Bowl hangover. Come out sluggish for some games. But now, Brady is pissed. And he is going to want to put a hurting on the NFL.

The reason the Jets, Bills and Dolphins kept quiet during all this is because they know he is coming back mad and no need for him to come back MADDER at them for saying he cheated.

Kraft won't appeal punishment. I guess he read Brady's texts.........

I like the speculation that Kraft was asked to drop it in exchange for a reduced Brady suspension. That makes sense to me.
