The NFLPA has filed the appeal of Tom Brady’s ridiculous four-game suspension.
Good luck, Roger. You’re going to need it.
Just like we saw with Spygate nearly eight years ago, accusations of cheating are starting to swirl around the Patriots again with the Deflategate scandal catching headlines.
Appearing on 97.5 FM in Philadelphia, former Dolphins (and Eagles) quarterback A.J. Feeley accused Tom Brady and the Patriots of using illegal footballs in their 2004 Super Bowl season.
Feeley said the Patriots were using old, worn-in footballs during a game against the Dolphins that season. Continue reading Tom Brady, Patriots Used Illegal Footballs in 2004, A.J. Feeley Says »
On Monday night, in Game Four of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals, Pierce was already 5-of-6 from three when Washington Wizards coach Randy Wittman decided it was time for Paul Pierce to, once again, unleash his late-game heroics. With 9.5 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, down 104-101 to the Atlanta Hawks, everybody in the Verizon Center – home of the Washington Wizards – knew where the ball was going. Pierce, who had just hit a buzzer-beater in their previous game to put the Wizards up 2 to 1 in the series against the higher-seeded Hawks, has spent this postseason viciously reminding everyone why he had earned the nickname ‘The Truth’.

In a rather stunning announcement early Monday evening, the NFL levied some of the most severe punishments a team has ever faced against the New England Patriots in the aftermath of the Wells Report. The team was fined $1 million, the most a team has ever been fined, as well as being docked a 2016 first round draft pick and a 2017 fourth round draft pick.
The biggest news though was the four-game suspension of future Hall of Fame quarterback and four time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady. Pending an appeal, Brady will miss the Patriots first four games plus the team’s week four bye week. He will be allowed to participate in off-season activities and training camp, but once the season begins he will not be allowed at the Patriots facility.

* Celtics out of the playoffs and Kevin Love may hate them
* Bruins complete under achievers
* Red Sox are currently paying $2,525,287 per win (Astros are paying $717,467 a win)
* Patriot nation is hunted
* As suggested – banner doesn’t get raised until Brady’s first home game. It will be a crazy party for that game and the NFL will have their opener this year with no celebration Continue reading Connelly’s Top Ten: See You in Court! »
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was suspended four games by the NFL on Monday, days after the release of the Wells Report, which concluded that Brady was “generally aware” the Patriots probably deflated footballs used in the AFC Championship game against the Colts earlier this year. The Patriots won that game 45-7.
The Patriots were also fined $1 million and docked a first-round pick in next year’s draft and a fourth-round pick in the 2017 draft.
The following is a list of why Brady being suspended for a quarter of the season is asinine, asiten, asileven, asitwelve!
First, let’s take a step back and examine what we’re talking about here. Continue reading Reasons Why Tom Brady #Deflategate Suspension is Ridiculous »
* Official Anderson said he has never seen balls disappear in his twenty year career. Hmm in the one game when balls are being watched more than ANY other game in NFL history he loses sight of them. Allowing McNally to leave the room with the footballs was part of the sting.
* So the balls were pumped up during the Jets game – hmm some needle play by Rex and Gang Green.
* Words of support from Manning and Colin Kapernick – every other QB that manipulates the balls better speak up (ie. Aaron Rodgers) or face the wrath.
* Don’t forget the Patriots knew the Colts violated an unspoken rule by ratting out the Patriots by the way Brady threw a bomb on his last play of scrimmage in the 4th quarter of the AFC Championship while up 45-7
* Don Shula the most overrated coach in sports history with Dean Smith is chirping again about the Patriots cheating
* Under .200 average – Hanigan, Napoli, Pedroia, Craig, Swihart, Leon, Ortiz, Victorino Continue reading Connelly’s Top Ten: Sox Deflate Boston, as Does Pending Suspension »
