Today, my good people, I have learned more about football and their really stupid scandals than I have ever wanted to in my entire life. So here it is folks,the breaking news that started the third world war; the thing that made the sky fall, and Patriot fans everywhere cry to their mommies. Tom Brady screwed up. Really badly. Other people were in on the (what I’m forever and always going to refer to it as), Tom Brady’s Deflated Balls Failure. Anyway, while I personally don’t really care about Mr. Brady’s balls (on the fields or off), it’s not American of me to admit that, with Football being America’s favorite sport and all…… Whatever, the point is, even if I don’t care lots of people do. So Tom Brady was found guilty (you read that right) of cheating. OH MY GOD, it’s the end of the world! Lets be realistic. People cheat all of the time. So what’s the problem? There are multiply problems. The first one is probably that Tom Brady and his footballs are professional and famous. So Mr. Brady has been found guilty of cheating; he kept pushing his equipment manager to deflate some balls during the playoffs, according to the Wells Report. What’s the big deal? Honestly.
Brady being guilty isn’t the thing that’s problematic. And that’s where things get a little more than sticky. Brady is rich, famous, white, and really big in a billion dollar league. UGGGGG….. Things just have to be complicated, don’t they? Here’s where things get even sticker. The NFL has been lowering the BOOM on lots of less wealthy, not as famous African American players who committed crimes that don’t really directly affect things on the field. So who knows what’s gonna happen if Brady takes his Deflated Balls Scandal to court. While Brady should be suspended for the whole 2015-2016 NFL season because he broke lots of rules that directly had to do with the integrity of football games (whatever that means), in a way the definitely helped his team, he’s only suspended for the first four games, and the Patriots were only fined a million dollars. Which may seem like a lot, but when your team is that rich, I guess it isn’t. Who knows what will happen next.
I’ll keep you lovely little angels posted to see if Tom Brady takes his balls to court.
