The NFL Tyrants Hiding Behind the Word Integrity

Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed. ~Joseph Stalin, former leader of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union

Joseph Stalin knows a thing or two about propaganda and shaping public opinion. Stalin didn’t get into a position of power by telling the masses the truth of his agenda. In fact, he hid behind words such as equality and fairness to the people. He shamed capitalism by telling the people how the rich exploit the poor.

If history has taught us anything, it is to always ask questions of one’s true agenda.

Those in any position of power are scariest when their agenda is not clear. Instead of honesty, these leaders hide behind positive words such as “integrity” to justify their tyranny. Roger Goodell and the front office leaders of the NFL are no exception. Continue reading

Don’t Forget the First Warrior Who Built This Town We Call Patriot Nation

So Robert Kraft is a sell out eh? If it weren’t for Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, Kraft wouldn’t be rolling in the cash right? Hold on while I laugh out loud for a moment.

Okay, laughing complete. Commence disappoint with a dash of anger at my fellow Patriot fans who follow in line with the likes of Skip Bayless in thinking Kraft sold out his quarterback and the Patriots to the NFL for cold hard cash. Sorry, but I’m not buying the crap you or Skip are trying to sell. Kraft has more money than you or Skip could ever dream of (pre and post Patriot owner) and if you haven’t noticed, he isn’t the youngest of bucks any more.

Rich people like Darrelle Revis are about cold hard cash. Wealthy, savvy businessmen like Robert Kraft are interested in building things and making their mark on the world. You don’t destroy the house you built for one public battle you can’t win. Kraft could care less about one battle, he’ll take that bullet so long as he wins the war. Continue reading

Goodell is Playing His Way Into a Trap of His Own Demise

Despite the court of public opinion, Mr. Kraft made a key power move. It’s hard to believe that a wealthy man of Kraft’s stature, who turned around a laughing stock of a team into an elite competitive organization, would choke in the matter of a day or two. If you truly think Kraft lost the war when he surrendered to Goodell’s punishment. Think again.

There’s a chess match going on between Kraft and Goodell. Kraft just set up a trap with his public “surrender”, and Goodell is playing straight into it.

No Matter How Hard You Try, You Will Never Destroy the Legacy of Tom Brady and the Patriots

Tom Brady isn’t finished, not by a long shot. By the time he’s done, there will be at least a fifth undisputed ring on his finger.

There will be no win he wants more than this one. He knows he doesn’t have another 10 years to get it. He’ll do everything in his power to make that happen, and he will become, without question, the greatest quarterback to ever play the game.

Enjoy the battle you have won. It won’t last. You haven’t won the war. Continue reading

The NFL Played You With a Deflated Ball…and Won

Based on the public outcry and the reaction from the first day that “deflategate” was born, the NFL knew you wouldn’t care about the full truth of what really happened prior to, during and shortly after the AFC championship game. They knew you wanted to see Tom Brady hang and you wanted the NFL to find proof. They knew the attention wouldn’t be on whether or not they are the true enforcers of the NFL shield, standing for integrity and justice. All you wanted to know was one thing: Was Tom Brady and the Patiots guilty of deflating footballs.

The NFL has spent millions of dollars for your public opinion and you fell for it, hook, line and sinker. Continue reading

Brady Will Fight Back and He Has the Ammunition to Do It

So far, this whole “deflategate” turned “framegate” scandal has been every thing I expected it to be and more. This is the closest thing to a sports soap opera as you can get. It really can’t get any better than this.

As a Patriots fan, you get used to the us vs. them mentality, but as David Ortiz so eloquently put it, the NFL “bleeped up on that one”. Not only did they issue a ridiculous punishment for under inflated footballs, they lost credibility. Many who actually believed Brady was guilty now stand on his side. This is too much. The NFL went too far. Continue reading

According to the Wells Report, the NFL Looks A Lot Worse Than Brady and the Patriots

So, you think Tom Brady is guilty. You’ve read or skimmed the report. Perhaps you read articles pointing out the major highlights and skipped the report all together. You just wanted to know the juicy parts. The parts that proved it was more probable than not that Brady is a cheater. Some of you cheered. Some of you were angry. There were talks of year long suspensions. There were talks of boycotting Brady from any future Hall of Fame nomination. Finally, the legacy and the dynasty known as Kraft, Belichick, Tom Brady and the Patriots would forever be tainted.

There is no way Tom Brady could escape this one-not with the evidence laid out in a 243 page report that, for you, was worth the wait.

Perhaps you haven’t gotten a real taste of Tom Brady. Continue reading
