Weird Tweet Of The Day

  • Let's begin with this: Tom Brady has been one of the leading reasons the NFL has, and is, earning billions.  He is not pleased with a four game suspension that the commissioner handed out and who, after an appeal to the same commissioner, affirmed his own decision today. 
  • That commissioner earned $44 million in 2012 and $35 million in 2013 from the NFL. Money earned because of people who now suffer lifelong complications from injuries. 
  • More importantly, the four game suspension is twice as long as what the commissioner originally gave violent woman-beater-in-an-elevator Ray Rice. And it is equal to the suspension currently assessed against Cowboy Greg Hardy. 
  • The Wells Report found Brady "guilty" under a standard of "more probable than not". OK. That's the general civil standard in America so that's an appropriate burden of proof for the NFL. But what exactly was found to be likely true?: "Tom Brady was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities of [the ball boys] involving the release of air from Patriots game balls.”  What does that even mean?  Heck, I'm generally aware that there will probably be a murder in the metroplex tonight committed by others.
  • Now to this tweet by Davis over what happened in an NFL game. Brady needs to "hit his knees" and "get right"? I had no idea God was interested in Deflategate. (I wonder what He thinks of the Dez "no catch"?) 
  • And what's Brady supposed to say? "Dear Lord, forgive me for probably being generally aware of the PSI of footballs. And please bless those tonight who are starving in Africa." 
  • And Davis finds Brady's attitude "infuriating".
