I’m pissed off extremely pissed off. I’m pissed off at the second circuit court of New York after their 2-1 vote that suspends Tom Brady. I’m pissed off at Roger Godell for putting the hammer down on Brady with no real evidence. I’m pissed off most of all at the NFLPA agreeing to Article 46 of the CBA.
The court ruling had nothing to do with the inflation or deflation of Footballs. It ruled on whether Roger Good ell can be judge , jury, and executioner. The court said he could be in conjunction with CBA and article 46. What exactly did the inept NFLPA give up to give Roger Godell that power. Is it 14 practices a year with pads which in my opinion is causing more injuries. You can’t go have speed in practice then rev, it up on Sunday with 300 pound men that run like deers, Sorry those collisions are nasty. I just don’t get why you let the guy who handed out the punishment judge the fairness of said punishment.
Why, would an attorney agree to that I just don’t get it. My common sense kicks in or my reality that says everything in the NFL reverts directly back to money. That probably is the bottom line. I can’t really blame the court they rule on the validity of contract and the Chief Justice recognized that article 46 is wrong as he dissented.
Brady isn’t going to give up but ultimately he will be suspended without much more recourse. The way I understand it. His only choices and I may be wrong here. Is appeal and have the complete second circuit court rule on it. or The US Supreme Court. Unfortunately, neither are likely to happen. It’s time for the NFLPA to step up but they won’t until 2019 or 2020 when ever the current CBA is over. Maybe they keep article 46 in lew of Tattoo artists in every locker room. Again this fails right back to the NFLPA.
In reality the Patriots could go 3-1 without Brady.Losing to Arizonia the beating undisciplined Bills and Dolphins. They may struggle against Houston but who would expose Houston more then the Patriots who trained their coaching staff. I guess all I can do is pray for Jimmy “Grapes” Grappolo to step up.
Ultimately, this doesn’t happen if everybody handled the balls better, We can start with Walt Andersen, We can start with a few guys in the NFL office looking to get something on the Patriots. These guys put the Patriots on double seceret probation. The low pressure ball not balls should have been removed from play and we go on. As far as Brady goes I hope he fights this to the end the very end.
Who Says Hockey Guys aren’t Tough
Islander Assist Coach Jack Capuano took a puck in the face last night during the Islanders win of the Lighting. It was the second period about 11:30 left when he caught a puck in the face. He was a bloody mess, he got treatment returned to the bench, How tough are hockey guys extremely tough even the guys in suits behind the bench.
Baseball started Laser 16 Lil lanz 13 are on the same team for the first time. Laser is finishing his Senior Little League Career . Lil lanz is starting. Laser has been sick and struggled a bit at the plate. ended up with abase hit a couple of stolen bases. As the opposing coach said the younger one was dirt dogging it out there. Lil lanz picked up an RBI and he second from third when the catcher threw to first for a pick off.
There Baseball is in full swing so it’s crazy for the next 6 weeks with 3 games a week.
A gentleman that I supervise passed away after a freak accident over the weekend. he was outwith a friend over the weekend when he apparently. choked on some food fell backwards down a flight of stairs and never woke up. Guy was annal about telling us managers exactly where he was going and what e was doing. When he didn’t show up for work on Monday myself and another manager went to his house car in the driveway called the police and fire they broke in he wasn’t there. I got back to the office and texted him and his sister in law answered the text telling what happend. It has been miserable at work with folks in the office and telling his clients been a tough few days.
