Well, the final report just got released by attorney Ted Wells today on the Tom Brady/New England Patriots Deflategate investigation. At 243 pages, it covers almost every conceivable angle to put up a nearly indisputable case against the Patriots, Brady and Belichick for cheating in the AFC Championship game earlier this year against the Indianapolis Colts. Wells report even includes some incredible scientific evidence along with phone logs between Brady and the locker room staffers that builds a solid case against them.
So if it’s now proven that Brady and the Patriots likely had an established pattern of cheating over the past year that led them to their Super Bowl “victory” against the Seattle Seahawks, do you think stripping Brady and the Pats of all their wins over the entire season would be too extreme (why would anyone think they only did this once)? Or do you think the NFL will simply slap them on the wrist and hold back a couple of selections during their draft? When you realize that all the bookies have already taken the Pats out of their odds-making stats, makes you wonder who’s actually running the show… (Think about this one: If the Patriots lost an entire season off their numbers, it would wreak havoc with bookies being flooded with refund requests that they couldn’t possibly handle.)
