Has to start with this:

NYT wrote:
Tom Brady’s Four-Game N.F.L. Suspension Erased by Judge

In a major setback for the N.F.L., New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady prevailed in his battle to have his four-game suspension overturned Thursday, as a federal judge reversed a ruling by Commissioner Roger Goodell to bench one of the league’s biggest stars in a dispute over underinflated balls he used in a January championship game.

Judge Richard M. Berman of Federal District Court in Manhattan did not rule on whether Brady tampered with the footballs in a bid for competitive advantage. Instead, he focused on the narrower question of whether the collective bargaining agreement between the N.F.L. and the players union gave Goodell the authority to carry out the suspension. Judge Berman ruled that it did not.

An underinflated football would be easier for a quarterback to grip and throw. New England won the game in question, the A.F.C. championship game, against the Indianapolis Colts, 45-7, scoring most of its points in the second half after the Colts had complained about the balls.

Brady’s lawyers had argued that the N.F.L. did not warn him that he could be suspended for not cooperating with the league’s investigation, as a report commissioned by the N.F.L. asserted, or for playing a role in tampering with equipment, something that normally warrants a fine. Brady had denied any knowledge, but the N.F.L. report said the preponderance of evidence made it likely he knew about the balls.

Judge Berman’s ruling is a blow to Goodell, who has tried to expand his authority to suspend players for what he perceives to be violations of the integrity of the game.

Unless the N.F.L. can get a federal appeals court to issue an emergency injunction, Brady will play in the Patriots’ opening game Sept. 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.


IOW: The NFL cannot compel players to cooperate with an investigation, or better yet, cannot suspend them for failing to cooperate. Precedent is a bitch Roger. But you knew that, with your law degree and all. Neutral

Oh jt09 - if only you had seen me literally celebrating today when I read the news that Brady was released. I was released from jury duty about 10mins later; maybe people thought I really was crazy Smile

He's not getting divorced. The saddest thing this off-season was Clay Matthews getting married/having a kid. That was a true moment of Puppy Eyes Crying or Very sad

Quote:
NO SURPRISE AT ALL
This is the kind of stuff that happens to the visiting team in Gillette Stadium all the time. From the start of the game through the opening 14 minutes of the first quarter, the Steelers’ coaches’ headsets were receiving the Patriots Radio Network broadcast of the game. The broadcast was so loud that the Steelers coaches were unable to communicate, and the NFL rule is that if one team’s headsets are not working the other team is supposed to be forced to take their headsets off. It’s what the NFL calls the Equity Rule. Strangely enough, whenever an NFL representative proceeded to the New England sideline to shut down their headsets, the Steelers headsets cleared. Then as the representative walked away from the New England sideline, the Steelers’ headsets again started to receive the Patriots game broadcast.

"And the haters gunna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate..."

Steelers are all upset about this, yet they REFUSE to formally file a complaint with the NFL. So, can't be that credible if they're not filing a complaint.

Aubs, it's not just the Steelers that have said this.

My guess is nobody wants to formally complain because they do stuff like that at home too.

LOL at that stuff. The Patriots are just trolling now. Nobody will ever be able to prove they orchestrated something like the radio broadcast so why not do it? I think it is one of the funniest things a team has done to troll the commissioner in any sport, at any time.

Dude was obviously nuts. Unfortunately for his loved ones to be sure. He just moved up the timeline on what was going to be his ultimate end though: dying while incarcerated. Neutral

jt09, as much sense as it makes financially for Davis to make that move, it makes no sense for their fan base. The Raiders and all the garbage that accompanies them is here.

Would San Antonio embrace them, or just use this as an easy opportunity to see the visiting teams? I'm guessing there would be little/no home field advantage for a long time. And if/when the 'Boys come to town fuggetaboutit, right?

The Raiders just need to move to Levi Stadium with the 9'ers. There is absolutely no good reason to not make that happen at this point.

i've been avoiding the threads on longhorn/bobcat boards about it for the most part, but there's a lot of smoke around it. apparently red mccombs has been in touch w/ mark davis and there is a plot of land purchased somewhere just north of sa for a stadium, just waiting for the ok.

would sa embrace them? my guess is yes, overall. while sa is absolutely cowboys territory for sure, it's also the largest city in the country w/o a team, now that la has been checked off. there's tons of opportunity there.

The city size is one thing, but aren't they like a mid-30's media market?

Just checked - 32 according to Nielsen. That has to be a pretty big issue, especially considering the Raiders get the SFBay (6th) + Sacramento (20th) area as their immediate home market. I guess you could throw Austin in there with SA but that's still not a huge overall market.

Anyhow, at this point the Raiders options are getting pretty slim and Davis is likely getting tired of playing these games. Moving them would be very painful for many though (unlike STL who lost something they should never have had) NorCal is their home and their fan base is very deep here.

In other news, the year of KC is going to continue as the Chiefs take down Tom Brady this weekend in Foxboro. Word is their headsets aren't going to work very well for some reason.

F that. Don't need any more traffic around here. Send 'em back to LA or something.

Ending of the GB/AZ game was fantastic. I do kind of wish NFL would use the NCAA style of OT, but put the ball on the 40 instead of 25.

The GB/AZ game was a good one, except for the final result. It was hard to see my Packers lose.

Yes definitely heartbreaking as a Packers fan, but it was a good loss. We've had other really bad beats the past few years.

Well, the Broncos are going to the Super Bowl, extra sweet sending Brady and the Patriots home to get there.

Win or lose, get to cheer for them another game... Very Happy
