    Tom Brady Will Be Suspended by Roger Goodell for Role in DeflateGate, Announcement Expected Next Week
    NY Daily News

    Tom Brady will be the highest-profile player ever suspended in the 96-year history of the NFL.

    Roger Goodell’s decision is expected to be announced next week, and it is no longer a matter of if the NFL commissioner will suspend Brady, but for how long he will suspend him.

    In conversations I’ve had with several key sources who always have a good sense of what goes on at 345 Park Ave., there is little doubt that Goodell considers Brady’s role in DeflateGate a serious violation.

    A suspension would mean the Patriots would be without Tom Brady for an extended period of time for just the second time in his career.
    The NFL is convinced, according to sources, that connecting all the dots of the evidence supplied by Ted Wells leads to one conclusion:

    Brady cheated.



    The feeling is that the Wells Report supplied Goodell with enough ammunition to suspend Brady both for breaking the rules by ordering the deflation of footballs and by not cooperating with the investigation when he refused to turn over his cell phone to Wells’ investigators.

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell faces another complicated disciplinary decision.
    The only question now is how many games with which Goodell will hit the league’s star player.

    Estimates have been all over the map. My feeling is he will wind up with two games, whether that is the initial discipline handed out or whether he is hit with four and ends up with two after an appeal.

    [​IMG] Elsa/Getty Images
    While Bill Belichick comes off mostly clean in the DeflateGate report, the Patriots coach’s record of being fast and loose with the rules could come back on him.
    The Miami Herald reported Brady’s suspension could be as much as the entire 2015 season. Sources insist that is way off and not going to happen. There were reports in Boston on Friday on CSNNE that the Patriots fear Goodell could hit Brady with a six- to eight-game suspension. Others have estimated two to four games.

    Brady will not likely be the only one disciplined in DeflateGate. The Patriots could be fined, just as they were for SpyGate in 2007, when Goodell fined them $250,000 and took away a first-round draft pick. Bill Belichick, who was hit with a $500,000 fine for running his spying operation, is not likely to face sanctions because the Wells Report did not link him to the deflating of the footballs.

    Roger Goodell finds himself in the unusual position of having to suspend one of the NFL’s biggest stars in Tom Brady.
    GET TO KNOW GAROPPOLO: PATRIOTS BACKUP QB COULD BE FRONT AND CENTER

    Clearly, any games Brady misses reduces the chances Belichick and the Patriots have of repeating as Super Bowl champions.

    [​IMG] POOL/REUTERS
    Tom Brady says the DeflateGate report hasn’t diminished the afterglow of winning the Super Bowl. ‘Absolutely not,’ he says Thursday evening.
    Second-year backup Jimmy Garoppolo better start warming up in the bullpen. But even if the Pats are without Brady for more than a few games, Belichick is very resourceful.

    In 2008, following the Patriots’ 16-0 regular season, Brady suffered a season-ending torn ACL in the first quarter of the first game. In came Matt Cassel and the Pats finished 11-5, although they missed the playoffs on tiebreakers.

    [​IMG] Matt Slocum/AP
    Tom Brady wins a fourth Super Bowl in February with the Patriots.
    Considering how soft Goodell was in originally giving Ray Rice just a two-game suspension for slugging his future wife in an elevator — there were enough details about what happened for a stiffer suspension even before the second elevator video surfaced — how can Goodell possibly justify giving Brady six to eight games?

    This is not the outcome the NFL wanted out of the long investigation by Wells. Brady and Peyton Manning together have been the faces of the league for more than a decade, and this is not at all like Goodell having to suspend miscreants such as Rice, Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy for various degrees of domestic violence. This is Brady, a four-time Super Bowl champion, three-time Super Bowl MVP, husband to the world’s most famous supermodel and, at least to this point, everything Goodell wanted representing the NFL shield.



    Meanwhile, sources say NFL owners are watching closely how Goodell deals not only with Brady but with the Patriots as well.

    Wells’ constant use of “more probable than not” in explaining Brady’s role is the standard the NFL was looking for to find him in violation of the rules. The league considers that as good as guilty and just a way of phrasing it in legal terms.

    Two days ago, former Bills, Panthers and Colts GM Bill Polian, a former member of the competition committee, said on ESPN that the phrase “is the standard of proof that the NFL has used for about seven years or so that means in English: they’re guilty. . . . This is not running through a stop sign, this is not speeding five miles over the limit. This is a serious competitive violation that has to be treated as such by the league.”

    No matter how many games Goodell suspends Brady for, the Jets’ chances of closing the gap on their long-time tormentors has just increased significantly.

    There will be two types of people in this thread; butt hurt Pats fans and rational people.

    Brady cheated, hid evidence, and lied. Indisputible. His career will always have an asterisk and that's that.

    He will retire a billionaire and married to Giselle though. Scoreboard Brady. Mother fucking life isn't fair.

    They constantly cheat and its proven time and again. Imagine what Ruthlessraper, Peyton, or other QBs/teams could have done if the team knew what the other teams play calls would entail ahead of time? And if you are stupid enough to get caught filming other times, deflating balls so that your receivers can easily grab your passes even if they aren't pinpoint, what else are they doing?

    The sad thing is, just like the kings/lakers when the ref admitted they were paid off to give the lakers i believe 24 to 2 free throws in the 4th quarter of game 7 to the lakers over the kings, people still pretend that kobe and shaq earned their respective title count. Sports fans are generally idiots, and the media has a field day in the present with sports tragedies/screw jobs, but they quickly pretend like the sport if the purest thing on earth because this way they can keep writing articles about wins/losses, records, etc. like everything is gravy.

    to be honest it's still quite perfect it would seem

    but there is a sinister joy to be had in seeing stuff like this happen

    The 2004-2005 NFC championship game was played in Pittsburgh. On the sidelines, a Steelers starter was screaming "Fuck, it's like they know our plays". Little did they know.

    They should stick a deflated football up his ass and then inflate it.

    Yes. And that goes for Goodell too. (But rumor has it that Roger might enjoy it.)

    It will be a slap on the wrist, like a 6-game suspension with the 4 preseason games as part lf the six.

    The Pats have pulled scumbag bullshit for years and the league has done nothing.

    let me start off by saying I'm a charger fan so I could give a rats ass about the pat's, but this is stupid, he and the pats did nothing no other doesn't do, ray rice gets 2 games for knocking out his girlfriend on video, then Brady deserves a 2 minute suspension in the first game of preseason!
