  1. Schadenfreude. http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/patriots/2016/07/15/robert-kraft-deflategate-tom-brady-roger-goodell/87143898/ Tom Brady has surrendered in his battle for a four-game Deflategate suspension to be vacated, butNew England Patriots owner Robert Kraft isn't finished speaking out against the NFL. Saying the quarterback was "denied his right to a fair and impartial process," Kraft once again sharply criticized the league Friday for Brady's punishment and its handling of the Deflategate case as a whole. "The penalty imposed by the NFL was unprecedented, unjust and unreasonable, especially given that no empirical or direct evidence of any kind showed Tom did anything to violate League rules prior to, during or after the 2015 AFC Championship Game," Kraft said in Friday's statement after Brady announced he would not pursue further legal action. "What Tom has had to endure throughout this 18-month ordeal has been, in my opinion, as far removed from due process as you could ever expect in this country." In addition to Brady's four-game suspension, the Patriots were fined $1 million and docked first- and fourth-round picks. Kraft initially accepted the punishments against the team but later reversed course when NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell first upheld Brady's suspension upon appeal. The penalties were levied when the NFL's Wells Report ruled that it was "more probable than not" that Brady had general knowledge of a "scheme" to deflate footballs prior to the AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Coltsfollowing the 2014 season. The Patriots won, 45-7, and later prevailed in Super Bowl XLIX against the Seattle Seahawks. Though the battle regarding Brady's suspension is over, the NFL Players Associationmight not be stepping down from its own legal showdown with Goodell. In a statement supporting Brady's decision Friday, the union said "we reserve our rights to reserve our rights to petition for cert to the Supreme Court." For Kraft, a once-close ally of Goodell and the NFL, the saga has marked a sea change in his relations with the league. "From day one, I have believed in Tom and given him my unwavering support in his pursuit to rightfully clear his name of any wrongdoing," Kraft said. "That support extends throughout our organization and has only grown more steadfast as the preponderance of scientific evidence has exonerated Tom. Unfortunately, this stopped being about air pressure a long time ago."
  2. Ewwww, that's ironically what Geno's score was...
  3. Probably a good thing since all those same people probably covered up for Sandusky.
  4. Supporting the molesting of children is a positive? I understand he was a young man at the time but it shows lack of judgment and horrible ethics.
  5. I question the fact that this guy wanted to go to Penn State after it was exposed as one big Pedophile outfit. WTF?
