Tom Brady Suspended 4 games, Pats forfeit 2016 1st rounder and 2017 4th rounder in NY Jets Forum Posted May 12, 2015 Stop bringing up Sean Payton, the man has nothing to do with what's going on right now in NE. And no, it didn't happen on NE's watch, it was one guy who broke the rules. You're being hypocritical. how am i being hypocritical? i also thought it was a very harsh punishment on the pats, especially after the wells report concluded BB and the Pats weren't privy to the deflating. I referenced payton the saints because there is precedent for suspending the team/head coach when someone under them breaks the rules. they are supposed to know what's going on in their organization.
