“The fire is burning within the entire National Football League and with the way the league is handling the situation of so called under inflated footballs, then mishandling other business that is far worse than this, this fire is quickly turning into a roaring blaze, with no way to put it out”.
Let’s get this out of the way first, Hockey is my #1 sport, with the Boston Bruins being my favorite team, football is #2 on my list, with the New England Patriots being my favorite team and yes I have suffered through all the years before Belichek/Brady even came into the picture. True the Patriots are my favorite team, but I am such a sports fanatic, that I can see past the crap and look at all angles equally, unlike all the Drama Queens within all the Sports media. Yes I may struggle and not want to believe when a favorite player does something wrong, but if all the true facts were to come out against this player, okay I may have a hard time to accept the facts, but I would accept them and move on. Now in the case of Tom Brady and the way the NFL has dealt with this, then listening to Bob Kraft speak very angrily to the media? I have no choice but to go from 100% to 120% behind Tom Brady with my support.
I get the fact that the NFL is a business, but when the business becomes bigger than the sport itself, now you have a huge problem that needs to be fixed. How can you basically convict someone when you have no concrete evidence, which is what has been done to Tom Brady, Roger Goodell says in his report that Brady destroyed his phone? Brady comes out and says he did not destroy anything, that his samsung phone broke and he replaced it with a new Iphone? Then went to his carrier to try to retrieve the texts, but could not? I believe Tom on this as his play on and off the field through his tenure with the New England Patriots has proven that he is a straight up person. Tom Brady works very hard to be the best Quarterback for himself and the team he plays for, he is always the first to practice and the one who works the hardest, so hard that he expects perfection of himself and when that perfection is not there, he gets pissed at himself first before anything else.
Now let’s talk hypothetically, if you work for a Corporation and they pay for you to have a cellphone and want to monitor your calls and texts, that is completely fair and within the rights of the Corporation. Now you have a personal cell phone and your Company wants you to hand over that phone, you are within your rights not to, even if the company responds by disciplining you in some way shape or form? But and this is a big “BUT”, you are within your rights to fight them, because the word “personal” is just that…………. Personal. This is exactly what is going on between Tom Brady and the National Football League, the way the league has handled this and all other situations within the league, to me is suspicious at best, when you have two Individuals that have been proven of physical abuse against their Spouse and have received a slap on the hand, compared to the way they are handling a so called deflated football? There is something wrong within the organization and needs to be corrected in a big way, not too mention the way the league has handled a lot of other situations brought before them in the past.
Roger Goodell would not be Commissioner if it weren’t for Robert Kraft and the way Mr. Kraft spoke this morning of the leagues actions, he is pissed and I can’t say I don’t blame him one bit. The league has handled this situation badly from the start and it is just snow balling out of control right now, like a small camp fire left unattended. Tom Brady with his four Super Bowl wins, his three Superbowl MVP’s and his two league regular season MVP’s, not to mention other records and stats he holds, has more than proven that he is the best Quarterback of this time and can be mentioned along with the greatest Quarterbacks, within the history of the National Football league. Tom Brady does not need to cheat, cause he works his tail off whether in practice or a sanctioned game and when you work as hard as Tom does, you also can be the best at what you do. There is an old saying, “the hater’s are always going to hate”? This holds so true today and because Tom works so hard to be the best at what he does, plus the fact he has become a winner, now your going to have hater’s coming out of the wood work everywhere. What I say to all the Hater’s is, “if you want to be a Winner like Tom Brady, then step up to the plate and beat the Winner”. “Stop all the talk cause talk is cheap, it’s your actions and how you step up to the plate that matters a lot more than the cheap words”. Tom Brady is a class act and we all should step up to the plate to be like him, he has my full support through all this and when all is said and done, all the hater’s will go back under that rock they crawled out from.
” the Hater’s may always hate, but if they spent more time stepping up to the plate, then they will find there is no time to hate”
” The National Football League clearly has it’s issues, it’s time they step up to the plate and fix the issues, so the league can become better and let the great players get back to what they do best”
