Lets think outside of the box for a sec. Balls were deflated, but why is everyone blaming Brady?

Those balls could be deflated for the running backs to have less fumbles. Brady already prove he can throw but RBs fumble stats drop down.

Also is a team ball not like its a personal glove or if Brady was caught with sandpaper in his pockets...

Anyways, no one cares cuz no one lkes Brady

He shouldn't have destroyed the phone and NFLPA shouldn't have agreed to a CBA where they let the NFL commissioner be judge and jury. But he did and they did.

Not going to debate the Giants prospects this year with so many changes on the oline, dline, and secondary plus the 6 risk reward draft picks but ill drive home a WELL known fact.

If the Patriots / Giants make the SB again we will beat them... again, as long as Brady is playing. Man I love owning that dude, too easy.

Brady suspension upheld? Good.

Not because I agree with deflategate (I don't), but because of my disdain for the New England Patriots.

Looks like Brady isnt appealing to the Supreme Court. Can this Deflategate finally end?

I'm very grateful for the overwhelming support I've received from Mr. Kraft, the Kraft family, coach Belichick, my coaches and teammates, the NFLPA, my agents, my loving family and most of all, our fans. It has been a challenging 18 months and I have made the difficult decision to no longer proceed with the legal process. I'm going to work hard to be the best player I can be for the New England Patriots and I look forward to having the opportunity to return to the field this fall.

You do realize your statement is a blessing for unimpeded and Czar-like ruling of the NFL by Goodell? What about the Collective Bargaining Agreement cheapening?

Our school (Eastern Illinois) will finally get to see Jimmy G start some games. They've been waiting a couple of years for this. Hope he does well.

That's the agreement the NFLPA signed and there isn't much to interpret. They can renegotiate to change it when it renews. Using the courts to try to turn it into a broader labor law issue that affects people outside football was an attempt to deflect attention from the actual fact that the CBA is what it is, like it or not.

Then Goodell is being Vince McMahon to turn the NFL into a fixed entertainment-only money machine with no integrity... Goodell is a power hungry idiot who metes out punishment based on how he feels that day, who has pissed him off in the past, and how he can make the most money. Fairness? Bah.. fuggetouboutit...

Yeah, I totally realize that, but the NFLPA shouldn't have signed it then. If this happened to any other team or player, I would feel different. But it's Tom Brady and the Patriots, so I'm happy to sit on the sideline and cheer this one.

Jealousy gets people nowhere. He's accomplished as one of the greatest ever, has rings to prove it, has money, looks, supermodel wife, etc... It's understandable, the hate out of jealousy, but it gets you nowhere...
