Aren't the Chargers, Vikings and Jay Feely equipment violations similar in nature?
What were their punishments?
Why does Tom Brady get his alleged equipment violation get treated like an armed robbery when the other violations were treated like a parking ticket?
I said I don't think it was a big deal. The NFL did and I'm telling you what their angle was. They could have made a big deal about those others but didn't. I never said the treatment was fair.
Pats were snitched on before hand and sure enough had done exactly what was reported. They could have brushed it off but it's the PATS! What's the other teams you named current cheating history? The whispers are louder with them. Many teams, players and fans are on record before hand calling them cheaters. They're the one team who if caught people wouldn't let it go.
Those other teams are losing while cheating. Pats winning SBs. The spotlight and attention is totally different. People care more.Edited by The Collector - 9/3/15 at 2:53pm
