Per a New York Daily News report this afternoon, Tom Brady will be suspended for his role in deflategate next week. It’s not a matter of if Brady gets suspended, but for how long.
The feeling is the Wells Report supplied Goodell with enough ammunition to suspend Brady both for breaking the rules by ordering the deflation of footballs and by not cooperating with the investigation when he refused to turn over his cell phone to Wells’ investigators.
We are standing by our prediction, it’s two games maximum and probably less for Brady. Goodell does not want to risk stepping on the darling franchise of the entire NFL or costing his owners or his own pockets money. Plus, he’s a politician and crook himself.
