Goodell Ignoring His Own Rule Book: Game Ops Manual Calls For a $25k Fine For Ball Altering

I did some digging and found on the NFL Game Ops Manual that the NFL calls for a $25,000 fine if anyone is found to be altering the footballs after the balls have left the locker room. So why the 4 games? Because Brady didn’t give his phone? He didn’t have to, it wasn’t subpoenaed and the NFL had all the texts they needed from Jastremski’s and McNalley’s phones.

Maybe if the balls were deflated by punching them in an elevator, Brady would have only received a 2 game suspension…

Roger, your league is a mess, you make no sense, there is no consistency in your decisions and all this is is a muscle flex by you to show that you fucked up all your other decisions.  Punishing a guy, one of the faces of the league, for 4 games because of air pressure is absolutely insane. Deep down fans of other teams think this is stupid but its trendy to hate the Patriots.  When this gets overturned in court, Goodell needs to step down. He is not competent enough to run this league and he’s showing it with this power trip he is on…

All this is going to do is motivate Brady even more. After week 4 last year and Trent Dilfer said on Monday Night Football “Let’s face it, they’re not good anymore”; this put a major chip on Brady’s shoulder and he set out to demolish the rest of the league. The Patriots won 10 of their final 12 games and went on to win the Super Bowl. Wait until Brady comes back now…

Oh and that lame ass prank a Jets fan pulled by flying this banner over Gillette yesterday. Not a smart move, you’re Brady’s first opponent at home… A lot of chirping by a team that routinely goes 6-10.
