Seems like a convenient excuse for Goodell. Brady refused to turn over his phone in the first place, so it's not like Goodell would have used the information in the appeal anyway.

If anyone wants to give Tom grief for not turning over his phone, would you willingly hand over your private phone to your employer?

if they paid me 20 mil a year? yeah, this isn't a normal job, you can't compare.

 

FWIW, i am on your side, just don't like the argument you used there.

Getting paid $20mil/year, in an industry with an anti-trust exemption and a collective bargaining agreement. There's really no comparison to regular jobs. Most people don't have to worry about the draft or getting traded either.

I have a friend who got a job that was probably above him and the company has dicked him around ever since. He has lived in 3 states in the past 4 years for the same company, none really by choice.

That actually IS his choice. If he has been dicked around since day 1, he can up and leave.

Well, technically yes but in reality he didn't have a choice. His salary and position were such that nobody would take him, especially for a raise. So he has had to stick with the same company. Sort of like an overpaid baseball player that a team can't trade without retaining some of his salary.

LOL @ the Bob Kraft news conference. If you haven't read the comments, I will summarize:

"I thought Roger was going to hook me up and let Tom off because I accepted my punishment, but he didn't! WAHHH!"

Also unlike a normal job, there's a ridiculously strong union that is full-throatedly backing him and using him as the face of negotiations for the rest of the league. He's not going to compromise the rest of the NFLPA by turning over anything.

The union sucks what do you mean. Probably weakest in pro sports

He's also the most clutch Super Bowl QB of our generation. Tom Brady would know.
