Re: Tommy Boy's Suspension Reinstated

I don't have a problem with that. WE all got pissed when the bountygate penalties were handed down and rightfully so. They were much to harsh. I know the first reaction may be one of distain for Goodell making it so hard on us but giving the Patriots a slap on the wrist so to speak. It is easy to say since we got treated harshly everyone should, but I think there is something to be said for a man who learns from his mistake and corrects it.
I cant fault him for this. It is a pretty harsh penalty all things considered. He is suspending arguably the best QB of all time for 4 games. That sends a message. Especially seeing how tight he and the Patriots are.

3 of the Pats 1st 4 games are against AFC opponents w/2 division games, Dolphins and Bills and a conference game, (@ Texans Thursday night).

Without Brady they could start the season with a losing record.

Can't believe how frigging long this is dragging on. I'm having flashbacks to Starcaps.

Re: Tommy Boy's Suspension Reinstated

Regardless the outcome; Goodhell has way too much power. Judge, Jury, and Executioner, so to speak.

Not allowing him to have anything to do with the appeal would be a great start...

I know it's cliche at this point, but didn't the players allow this to continue based on the current collective bargaining agreement?

Re: Tommy Boy's Suspension Reinstated

This decision was about Goodell having the power to suspend, not necessarily the circumstances of deflating the balls.

Its a loss for those that feel Goodell has too much power.

Maybe now they will get it out of the news and we can all move on.
