Props to the Denver defense, they got little help from Peyton 'Three and out' Manning.
Cheaterhater, 'It's safe'.
The Bart Simpson defense I thought was an online shooting game, could you please explain how it pertains to Brady's defense?
Brady's court case as I have pointed out numerous times, it was about due process versus Goodell's infinite authority. What Berman, a New York judge, ruled was that Brady was not fairly treated by Goodell and the NFL in terms of labor laws. Even Antonio Cromartie a Jet himself made the observation that Goodell went to far and needed to be stopped.
As to whether Brady was guilty or whether the Pats deflated the balls I can not honestly know for sure. There is a small possibility that this involved nothing more than the Ideal Gas Law. Even though it is a small possibility, this is what is known as reasonable doubt. When it is all said and done, even if Brady and the Patriots were guilty, by the rules of the NFL and previous situations it should have been nothing more than a $25,000 fine. Why you and other Patriot haters can't look past your hate and be fair minded is disappointing.
