Pats Fans React To Report That Tom Brady Will Serve A 4-Game Suspension This Year
WFAN's Craig Carton dropped a bombshell tidbit this morning on his simulcast show with Boomer Esiason regarding the NFL's vengeance quest against one Thomas Patrick Edward Brady Jr. (FYI: the NFL is currently appealing the U.S. District Court's ruling, which overturned Brady's punishment for his role in the DeflateGate scandal.)
According to a high ranking NFL executive, there is "no doubt" Tom Brady will serve his four-game suspension at some point this season.
"I'm not gonna tell you who the person was...this was what the person said to me yesterday: there's no doubt in his mind, none whatsoever, that Tom Brady will serve the four-game suspension this year after the appeal is heard."
While the NFL hasn't exactly proven itself to be prescient -- they're barely aware of things that have already occurred -- it's hard to dismiss such a confident assertion. That's why many in the media, most notably Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, questioned the plausibility of this mysterious NFL figure's back-channeled guarantee. Others speculate Carton's information could be a strategic play by the league to undermine Brady's legal victory in the eyes of the public. Some even think Carton made it up for ratings.
Then, of course, you have the hyper-loyal New England Patriots fans, who once again have grabbed their pitchforks to chase Frankengoodell out of their football utopia.
Y'all thought your golden boy was in the clear, didn't cha? Huh?
Why are people talking about a Tom Brady suspension when he won his case and his appeal is in process? Dudes. Who started that rumor?

I want the @Patriots and Brady to win the Super Bowl. Take the trophy from Goodell and drop it and walk off and file retirement papers

@woodyjohnson4 If it was you who leaked that bullshit rumor about Brady I wanna say thank you. He'll probably throw 10 TDs sunday now.
