Usually if appliances don't break within the first year (defective) they won't fail for a while so extended warrantees are a waste of money, but it sounds like you got a pretty good deal so don't lose any sleep over $300.
Does NFL have any evidence to believe there were any incriminating texts in Brady's phone? I assume they checked the attendent and other employees' phones and there were no text to or from Brady. Destroying the phone is not an evidence of wrongdoing.
Yes, how dare people expect a raise after a few good seasons when their contract is up for renewal. They should just STFU and work for the same money. Oh and they absolutely get less money after bad seasons when their contract is up.
