Well, it happened. We knew this would be possible, but wishful thinking combined with fatigue from Deflategate prevented us from truly understanding the possibility that Tom Brady would actually sit out 4 games due to suspension.
I don’t have to tell you that the decision is total BS, given that the judges used the Wells Report in their decision, and every major scientist from every major university who ran their own tests on this scenario found that science was not on Ted Wells’ side. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to matter to judges, who didn’t feel that it was their job to care about the facts of the case, but only to determine whether or not Roger Goodell could be this unfair. Apparently, he can.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not completely devastated. This ruling could hurt the Pats’ playoff seeding, which, as we learned a few months ago, is a huge deal with a potential trip to Denver looming. Denver has a very advantageous schedule this season, which makes this ruling hurt a little bit more. Having said that, better men than I have doubted the Brady/Belichick Patriots, and they’ve all been proven to be morons. I’m not gonna be a moron, and I hope that you won’t either.
