Re: Exoneration of Belichick suggests Payton shouldn’t have been punished, either

Okay, now this is E-freakin-nough...

Saints, Coaches, GM, Players get the beat down for a locker room bounty pool, despite several players from other teams shrugging their shoulders, admitting to the same thing...

Then Ravens RB Ray Rice puts his own beat down on his fiance and gets caught on tape; later it's uncovered that the tape released was 'edited' and both the Ravens MGT and the League Office were involved; Ole' Rodge looks right into the cameras, and denies everything...

Then two teams are caught in a franchise systematic scheme of pumping noise into their lifeless stadiums to give their teams an unfair advantage and those teams only lose a fifth round pick a piece and a minimal amt of cash...

Now Brady gets caught doing what most other QBs in the league do and gets the hammer brought down on him; but the coach is exonerated of any and all accountability?!?

WTF gives?

Vitter could slam his gubernatorial bid down right here by hauling Rodger's arse before a public committee hearing, asking him some tough questions about the inconsistent application of the shield laws and compel him to answer by leading questions with "Since NFL teams are subsidized with public funds tied to long-term lease agreements, tell us..."

There must be some consequences visited upon Goodell for his arrogant, hypocritical abuse of power; and his employer(s) the 32 member body of owners, put on notice for careless disregard of same...

He appealed it. Not much else he could do.

No federal court would set precedent and overrule the NFL, or everyone suspended ever would sue

Never seen any judiciary, particularly this latest batch of judges, ever back down from setting precedents.

This. Even if the NFL had had told them to clean up whatever was going on and came back later to find something was still happening there was no reason to take such a harsh penalty without fighting back. And I mean fighting back beyond the appeal.

We rolled with the punches because Godhell lied and said if we were good we might get a draft pick back.

He determined Brady was lying and should have also determined the same for Belicheat. No way a coach could not know this was happening. This is your star QB you have been with through thick and thin. You know all about what goes on. Impossible to be unaware of it. Impossible. If the balls are adjusted for games they are also adjusted for practice. You train how you are going to fight.

Payton, he could have made a case for himself if he had shown he addressed the issue when notified immediately. He never did this which is what most professionals would do to CYA. I was waiting for this to come out and it never did surface so yeah, you have to show you did your due diligence as coach to stop it or at least, deliver a documented severe warning if it was going on or not that it won't be tolerated.
