Re: Sports: NFL

I believe some gloating may in order for some who, have indeed, correctly predicted a substitution rule change in regards to the Patriots' formations.

Re: Sports: NFL

I would not gloat over being correct about just that one thing. If I were going to gloat, it would be about that and being correct that they would simplify the receiver possession rules in the wake of the Dez Bryant play.

Re: Sports: NFL

Yes, of course. They're just trying to make it easier on the refs to make the call.

Re: Sports: NFL

Based on the report, let's assume some level of culpability on the part of Tom Brady, plausibly deniable or not. I wonder what the response would look like if he made a statement that looked something like this:

"I just want to come right out and say it, I screwed up, and I apologize. Worse, my actions are in all likelihood going to cause two men whose primary sin was helping me to lose their livelihoods. I could stand here all day and say that I never asked for the footballs to be underinflated - and that would be true, I never did. But I left no doubt in the mind of my equipment manager that I preferred them that way, and I rewarded him when they were to my liking. I suppose I tried to convince myself that it was okay as long as I didn't 'know' they were illegal. But it wasn't, and now I need to face the consequences of my actions.

First, I apologize to football fans and to Patriots fans in particular. You should be able to enjoy watching the Patriots play football free of scandal. Second, I apologize to my fellow players, to the league and especially to my teammates, by my actions I have tarnished you and made your accomplishments seem less than they deserve. Finally, I apologize to Bill Belichick and Robert Kraft who were not aware of my actions, but were organizationally responsible for them, and therefore are likely to suffer because of them.

I would ask that the NFL restrict punishment to only myself. Whatever punishment they believe appropriate I will accept with good grace, holding no ill will. Further, to the two equipment men who will likely lose their jobs over this, I give the sum of $1 million dollars. This is not in payment for services rendered, but a debt I owe them for making them complicit in my crime.

I ask for and hope for all of your forgiveness, and I stand ready to accept whatever punishment is deemed appropriate."

Re: Sports: NFL

From my standpoint, I could careless. Every team tries to cheat/get an edge. Not the first, won't be the last.

Re: Sports: NFL

It's the cover up that gets you. And there isn't plausible deniability.

Regardless, it's not the business with the balls that's the big problem. It's the lying afterward, and the refusal to turn over the phone. It's also, in my opinion, the organization's refusal to make McNally available for a second interview. We'll see what happens. I have no sympathy for cheaters, and the defense that others cheat too is not, IMHO, a defense at all. Others didn't get caught. If and when they do, it'll be their turn.

Re: Sports: NFL

The texts are what blow me away. The one guy was known as the 'Deflator'.
Come on. If you are going to cheat at least be smart enough to not text about it.

A cloud can change its semblance, yet retain its will
With the intimacy of destruction, One knows what it is to be alive
The empty sky holds no reflection, for sorrow
