      Just a hunch.
      Of course they wont do ****.

      The teams belong to the league, Rodger runs the league. It SHOULD be in his power, impho.

        How is it a joke? It's the only way for it to work. How can a player be a team employee and an NFL employee? If they were a league employee, they wouldn't even be able to negotiate their own contracts.

            The "joke" was the NFL spending $4MM on an investigation over a small matter, that should have been resolved with a letter to the team making them aware of it.
            Now they have egg on their face for it.
            Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

              Couldn't agree more. Well, I could agree more I guess, but...that'd be redundant.

              • I don't believe for a second that the two guys fired acted on their own without instructions to do so by somebody, Bill and Brady being the top suspects. Problem is, there is no evidence of either of them instructing them to do it. So you can't really punish anybody except the guys who did it and they don't seem willing to say who told them to do it. While I think the punishment was light for the infraction, I think the judge did the right thing because there is nothing specifically linking Brady. What if it was Bill, or the RBs coach? Would it be fair to stick Brady with the blame. As an expert in handling balls, Brady definitely knew it was happening, doesn't mean he was the one telling them to do it.

                The team has been caught multiple times bending rules for their benefit and they have lost any benefit of doubt with me. Just like I don't believe the injury situation with the Giants is luck, I don't believe the lack of fumbling with the Patriots is luck either. Something is different, the deflated balls makes a lot of sense with the Pats, so I am inclined to believe that they have been doctoring balls for a while. Probably why they took their punishment and shut up. Brady shouldn't be the fall guy unless they can show he was the spearhead of it, they couldn't and I doubt he was, I think it was Bill.

                  It is my understanding that the league did send a letter and the Pats continued to do it. Might have had something to do with napoleon's overreaction.

                      I believe you were misinformed.

                        Actually, I am not. Though after checking, the letter was sent in January 2004 and so not related to this incident. I initially thought it was January 2014, so my recollection was a decade off.

                        It seems emails were sent around between many league officials and a few other teams and not the Patriots prior to the "sting" operation set to catch them in the act.

                            • Seems you are correct that I was misinformed. I recalled reading about a letter sent to the Patriots about under inflated balls, what I thought it said was January 2014. Though after your post I checked and saw that I was incorrect and it was January 2004, so it has nothing to do with this incident. Not really sure what you are confused by.

                                Wasn't sure what else to call it, since Mike Kensil went to the game to speak to the officials and also sent emails to Blandino and Riverson who brought the issue to Walt Anderson. Seems to me like they planned to let the Pats get the balls on the field and at some point in the game check the pressure. So call it whatever you want.
