Some 'influential owners' don't want Tom Brady's suspension reduced
By Frank Schwab

Shutdown Corner


Jealousy can cause people to act irrationally, and that apparently holds true for NFL owners as well.

In a Pro Football Talk report about how the NFL and New England Patriots* quarterback Tom Brady's people have been talking settlement (no progress has been made, but at least it partially explains why we're on Day 30 of this ridiculous appeal decision watch), another nugget stands out.

[Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today!]

According to the PFT report, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is "being pushed by a small handful of influential owners to hold firm" on Brady's four-game suspension for deflate-gate. I'm going to go out on a limb and conclude that the "small handful of influential owners" are also fed up with the Patriots* being better than them.

(To answer all your comments, emails and tweets to follow: No I'm not from Boston, no I'm not a Patriots* fan, no I don't care about Brady or Bill Belichick and no I'm not part of any other crazy conspiracy theory you have either.)

There are some fans who think Brady should be suspended forever and the Patriots* should have all their Super Bowl trophies taken and on and on. Those are fans, and over-the-top reactions are part of the deal. I expect just a wee bit more from the actual owners, who should be above that.

If you've actually read the Wells Report with an open mind, you realize there's no specific evidence when it comes to Brady. The PFT report says attorney Gregg Levy, who participated in the appeal hearing as a legal consultant to the commissioner, has been warning Goodell it would be difficult to make the suspension stick in court. Which, of course it would be, since there's no evidence. But some owners don't want to hear that, apparently, because this is their chance to stick it to the Patriots*.

Breaking News - Brady suspension upheld by NFL. Things could get interesting from here out.

...or else Brady simply accepts the suspension and comes back motivated and determined...

Lying liar literally destroyed his cellphone so incriminating communications could not be retrieved - I guess Tom is just real committed to maintaining his privacy

My guess is Brady would not settle for even a one game suspension, so off to federal court goes Brady and the NFLPA

He'll get an injunction and will play week 1

Patriots** Training Camp Suffers Monumental Trolling by New York Jets Fans



Yes, this morning a small plane towed a banner outside Gillette Stadium that read, "CHEATERS LOOK UP! @JETSFANMEDIA." The Twitter account referenced belongs to an independent Jets fan site. No word yet on whether Brady and/or Belichick actually looked up, which, according to the sign, would amount to an admission of guilt.

footballs are man made so it is just natural some air will leak out.

Brady's suspension chances are growing lesser by the day. It will be an interesting time if a U.S. judge overrules the NFL in disciplinary matters.

And if they do, what does this mean for Rodger Goodell?

It means nothing until the CBA is renegotiated
