Skip Bayless Has A Pipping Hot DeflateGate Conspiracy Theory: Goodell Framed Brady
Tom Brady's on-going battle with the NFL is as convoluted as it is utterly boring to discuss. That's why the "First Take" crew has to dig extra deep into their bag of rhetorical tricks and conspiracy theories to find an angle that makes the litigation of a employer's suspension of its employee -- over the amount of air inside a leather-bound prolate spheroid -- even slightly interesting.
"He was framed for this," Skip Bayless said about Tom Brady.
"He was railroaded by the commissioner into becoming the fall guy for this...he resents it so deeply," he added, because why not?
"In Tom Brady's view, this is about getting the commissioner, maybe taking him down, costing him his job because you take away his integrity and credibility in court."
Well folks, there ya have it. An added level of intrigue to the story where Tom Brady -- the face of the National Football League -- was intentionally targeted by Roger Goodell on some sort of J. Edgar Hoover type -ish, and now is being vindictively targeted by Brady in court.
