Readers my recall that I had previously written how 'Deflategate' was a joke and was simply one more step down the road to 'professional wrestling' status for the NFL. Thursday's ruling Judge Richard M. Berman was the next BIG step. The judge ruled against the NFL, nullifying Tom Brady’s four game suspension for his role in the so-called Deflategate scandal.
His ruling confirms what many of us have long thought — that the NFL overstepped its bounds in suspending Brady, doing so with nothing but circumstantial evidence.
Do I think Tom Brady was totally innocent in Deflategate? Probably not. He knew something but there wasn’t enough evidence. The Wells Report was filled with discrepancies and sections that didn’t add up or make sense, and instead of digging to find the truth, or admitting that maybe they wouldn’t ever know the full truth, the league barged ahead with the Brady suspension. And how about the moronic ESPN legal analyst who INSISTED the NFL had a good case? lmao!
All of this b.s. from day one of the suspension was NOT about deflating footballs it was about protecting the power of Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Not surprisingly, the judge found that the NFL didn’t allow anyone from Brady’s side to question NFL executive Jeff Pash during the appeal, and Brady’s side never had the chance to examine the evidence against him.
Goodell just may have hanged himself with the owners.
