How is he a hack? Inconsistent for certain - oh answered my own question. He screwed up the Ray Rice issue and when he himself handles an issue, pretty sure he asks a magic 8 ball for the punishment. In this case, the report also alludes their prior history.
People still talk about Spygate, don't they? Deflategate would have been forgotten if the Seahawks had won the Super Bowl. I wonder what the Patriots' punishment would have been in that circumstance? I'd like to think that the league would have been consistent, but it probably would have been much less.
The report alludes to it, but when it's all said and done, no one really cares about, particularly when Tom and Bill are eligible for the HoF as the first couple.
