Even I want this over with ... but this is now just as much the NFLPA's fight as it is Brady's. Maybe even moreso.

So, they'll file a stay, it'll probably get denied, and the the NFLPA will take it to the Supreme Court.

Thread title still stands.

Nice to dream about, and the argument is sound ... but it'll never happen ... https://www.yahoo.com/sports/news/roger ... 57757.html

But y'all should be coming to the conclusion that this never happened.

Just in - Brady to be executed at halftime during the SupahBoll. Per CBA.

Are these the NFL's measurements or the Giants'?

The refs were in control of the balls. That's all you need to know.

True, it's not a court of law that will determine this.

And now the Giants are caught using a walkie talkie ... a clear blemish to the "integrity of the game" ... but, you know, it's not the Patriots so, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Eff it, I'm going full X with the typeset here.

Coupled with the fact that the evidence of tampering with the footballs was inconclusive at best, the decision to hammer the Patriots while not hammering the Giants becomes even more glaring and more obviously the result not of a genuine desire to protect and promote the integrity of the league but to find a way to justify punishing a team that has consistently excelled, that is repeatedly suspected of cheating (because how else can other coaches explain to their owners the dominance of the Patriots?), and that has a coach who lacks the people skills to make others inclined to give him a break or the benefit of the doubt.

But in the end...who among us doesn't love a good wickerman party?
