Tom Brady Suspended Four Games For DeflateGate; Patriots Docked Draft Picks, Fined $1 Million

4 years after spygate...
Seems like both the Patriots past and the unwillingness to cooperate with the investigation led to the severity.

Brady's agent said He will appeal.

Speaking as a Patriots fan since they drafted Bruschi in 1994, my only hope is that Brady doesn't come off like those MLB 'roiders that continue to deny using well after they've been caught.

He should simply issue a written statement that says how sorry he is for placing the equipment managers in that position and that he shouldn't have done that. With regards to the refusal to cooperate with the league, which is why the suspension and fine were so high, he should simply remind everybody of all the failures by the league as it pertains to previous disciplines and interactions with the players union, and leave it at that.

According to Burns and Gambo, Brady, through the NFLPA, has retained the services of the attorney who has apparently pwned the NFL over a number of years now; and has managed to get either reduced suspensions or dismissals in four or five instances.

AJ Feeley wants attention, basically.

Then there's this to up the ante. I'm shocked that Bradey didn't use his messaging records to put out the fire when it first came up. ;)

Belichick's silence is deafening.

The league has upheld Tom Brady's four-game suspension.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that the NFL and NFLPA exchanged offers for a potential settlement for Brady's suspension. However, Brady was not willing to accept any offer that includes him sitting out games, while the league would almost certainly want an acknowledgement of contrition from Brady.
