I'd much rather have the suspension this year than last year at the end of the day.  Keep Brady fresh, keep him away from 4 tough defenses to start the season, increase Garrapolo's trade value, give Brady a warm-up game vs the Browns to start the season, he's a year older so he needs the rest and this will give him a TON of motivation.

Almost a full year ago I said in this very thread - to many sneers, denials and unpleasant comments - that the suspension would stick.

Now, back to the points at hand. I said that Kraft would accept his penalty. He did. I said Brady would get suspended. He did. Now I am saying I think Brady will lose in court.

It has and Brady has dropped all legal challenges. I'm not entirely convinced that the suspension was justified - there's evidence both for and against - but it doesn't much matter under the collective bargaining rules.

The whole thing was a farce, a shameful smear campaign directed toward the greatest player in the history of the game. I'm glad it's over.

Exactly.

DeflateGate might be the biggest joke (of the unfunny variety) in the history of professional North American sports.

But there's still a pretty good chance that Goodell has to hand Brady the Super Bowl trophy next February, and that would make everything just fine in the end.

Thanks, Roger. Brady played 15 games in a SB winning season. Should be well rested for next year.

I "accidentally" took a wrong turn on the way back from a meeting and somehow ended up at the parade. The Globe estimated a million people, or about one-third of those who attended Trump's Inauguration, would be there, and I'm pretty sure that they were all packed into Government Center. It was cold, sleeting and packed about 30-deep (People were already 2-deep at 8am for a parade that came by at noon.), but people were generally friendly.

Funny story: Nobody's cell phone was working because there were too many people were jammed together, so we had no idea where the parade was or when it would reach us. The people in the seven-story office building across the street must have figured that out, because they began putting signs in the windows that kept us updated on where the Duck Boats were.

I only had one group next to me smoking weed. Someone in the crowd started to insist that they share.
