Usually, this is the time that we take a break from the wonderful train wreck that is American Football, but some things happened this week that kind of brought the game back into the spotlight. Tom Brady has been suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for conduct that is detrimental to the integrity of the game. Cheating, basically. Tom Brady, the Super Bowl champion and MVP, the perennial all-pro and the greatest player in Patriots history has been suspended for cheating. He’s in the conversation as one of the greatest players of all time, and certainly the greatest of his era, has been suspended for cheating. In addition, the New England Patriots organization, though having been found to have had no knowledge of the deflation of balls, has been fined a million dollars and has had their 2016 first round draft pick and their 2017 fourth round draft pick taken away.
INCREDULOUS MASSHOLE RESPONSE
Ah you fahkin kiddin me? Aaron frickin Rodgers was on TV a few weeks ago sayin he has his guys overinflate balls intentionally. When’s his fahkin suspension comin’? When ah you takin Green Bay’s first roundah? Tommy admitted to tellin them two asshats in the lockah room to inflate the balls to the lowest level allowed, not tuh break any fahkin rules! We got no problem with them assholes gettin fired. But you leave Tommy the fahk alone!

And now, my personal response:
It’s important as a parent to take the long view. We certainly can’t condone cheating in any form lest our children get the wrong message. That being said, if we’re damning someone to a lifetime of questioned integrity over the civil law definition of “more probable than not” we should be very careful about tarnishing someone that way. Tom Brady being probably generally aware is a murky place and…
Who am I kidding? The angry masshole response is my response too. Bring it!
