Tom Brady's Agent Slams NFL Suspension, Will Appeal the Decision

Tom Brady‘s agent Don Yee is slamming the NFL’s decision to suspend the New England Patriots quarterback for four games due to findings from a deflate-gate investigation.

“The discipline is ridiculous and has no legitimate basis. In my opinion, this outcome was pre-determined; there was no fairness in the Wells investigation whatsoever. There is no evidence that Tom directed footballs be set at pressures below the allowable limits. In fact, the evidence shows Tom clearly emphasized that footballs be set at pressures within the rules,” Don said in a very lengthy statement (via Us Weekly). “Tom also cooperated with the investigation and answered every question presented to him. The Wells Report presents significant evidence, however, that the NFL lacks standards or protocols with respect to its handling of footballs prior to games; this is not the fault of Tom or the Patriots. The report also presents significant evidence the NFL participated with the Colts in some type of pre-AFC Championship Game planning regarding the footballs. This fact may raise serious questions about the integrity of the games we view on Sundays.”

This fact may raise serious questions about the integrity of the games we view on Sundays.”

“We will appeal, and if the hearing officer is completely independent and neutral, I am very confident the Wells Report will be exposed as an incredibly frail exercise in fact-finding and logic. The NFL has a well-documented history of making poor disciplinary decisions that often are overturned when truly independent and neutral judges or arbitrators preside, and a former federal judge has found the commissioner has abused his discretion in the past, so this outcome does not surprise me. Sadly, today’s decision diminishes the NFL as it tells its fans, players and coaches that the games on the field don’t count as much as the games played on Park Avenue.”

    I don’t think the NFL gave away the evidence he has against him in the well’s report. There has got to be more to this, otherwise why would they take away 2 draft picks from the Organization. In the interest on not causing more outrage, I believe it would be in the best interest of Brady and the Patriots to take the 4 game suspension because if they decide to take the route of suing the NFL this may get uglier than the Pats, Brady or the NFL could ever imagine. I don’t think this thing is a one game thing, this is a was regular practice for these guys and if it comes out that this has gone on as far back as last year. . .the penalty could be worst for the Pat’s and the two black eyes that exist on this organization could lead to what the NBA had to do with the LA Clippers and its owner. Brady and the Pat’s have themselves to blame for this mess. . . all they had to do was fully cooperate and tell the truth with the investigations as is stipulated in the NFL/Players bylaws. Had they done that, punishment would have been 2 games but they broke two rules…integrity of the game and no cooperating with the investigation, this equals the 4 game suspension.
