It’s Time for Tom Brady to let this go…DeFlate gate will only go flat from here


Everyone had been waiting (not so patiently I might add) for Roger Goodell’s decision on whether to over turn Tom Brady’s  suspension for deflating footballs. Well we now know…the suspension stands.End of story right? Not so fast …It has been reported that

The NFLPA, via reports, has been planning to take the NFL to federal court if Brady’s suspension wasn’t completely overturned.

And that Tom Brady wants to be completely exonerated, he will not admit to something he claims he didn’t do.

To me the kicker is the cellphone that would exonerate Tom Brady …Brady destroyed and with it any evidence of his innocence, but you and I know it was evidence of his guilt. Apparently Goodell thought so too…

“On or shortly before March 6, the day that Tom Brady met with independent investigator Ted Wells and his colleagues, Brady directed that the cell phone he had used for the prior four months be destroyed,” the NFL said in a statement. “He did so even though he was aware that the investigators had requested access to text messages and other electronic information that had been stored on that phone. During the four months that the cell phone was in use, Brady had exchanged nearly 10,000 text messages, none of which can now be retrieved from that device. The destruction of the cell phone was not disclosed until June 18, almost four months after the investigators had first sought electronic information from Brady.”

“Rather than simply failing to cooperate Mr. Brady made a deliberate effort to ensure that investigators would never have access to information that he had been asked to produce,” the NFL’s 20-page ruling said. “Put differently, there was an affirmative effort by Mr. Brady to conceal potentially relevant evidence and to undermine the investigation.

“Mr. Brady’s conduct gives rise to an inference that information from his cell phone, if it were available, would further demonstrate his direct knowledge of and involvement with the scheme to tamper with the game balls.”

So now Brady is going to waste taxpayers money and the government”s time simple because he doesn’t want to accept responsibility for his role in deflate gate.. Had he just accepted his punishment his legacy wouldn’t have taking a hit instead he will tarnish his own legacy by his own doing by not owning this, by not cooperating with investigators and most of by thinking he is above the rules in the sport of which he is it’s biggest star.
