BREAKING NEWS: Sun Shines on Brady’s Ass Once Again Open Thread

h/t Gawker media

Update at 12:24 PM EST:

Because everyone loves talking about deflated ball rulings so much, here is an open thread to discuss the implication of one rich guy beating another rich guy in court so he can be paid millions of dollars to play a game.

I am not too disappointed in this ruling.  The Patriots were already punished as a team, and it looks really bad for Goodell and the NFL.

Deadspin has a lovely post that is updating with analysis of the order vacating the suspension here.

This is an open thread and I need to vent about something that just happened.

I run this small cleaning business on the side to make extra money. I’ve had it for years and it runs itself. My mother-in-law, and two of my brother-in-laws work for me as part-time gigs. Well, as of September first, only one works for me.

The one who was just fired, has cost me just under 10 grand in a year. He was getting paid $500/month to do about 20-24 hours of small admin work. Usually in the winter time when it’s dead and because he lives in the same city as my mother in law–my MIL is single, old and suffering from deformative arthritis– usually his job would be to do stuff around his mother’s house, like shovel the drive way, vacuum, change light bulbs, drive her to her doctors appointments, which were still based on his schedule, etc. You know, things that a kid should do when their parent is older and with a lot of health issues. This summer, because my mil was recovering from major shoulder surgery, I cut his small office work in half–though with the same amount of pay– so he could supplement his time helping his mom out around the house, which was roughly the same time he would have spent on office stuff.

Yet, he complained and pissed and moaned and was saying he hated me and his mom for doing this and that he was underpaid (!!!!!). Well, it all came to an end when I asked him to do this program to get a certificate that companies like to see now when doing business. He vowed and promised he would do it. Well, he didn’t and didn’t tell me so I couldn’t find a replacement and I lost $3000 as a result because I have to pay for the course again and get someone else to do it.

I just got the files back on my memory stick in the mail. Wanna know what that piece of shit just did? He changed all the file names and changed all the documents into random files that are also renamed to things that have nothing to do with this business. On the plus side, my wife is pretty much ready to shoot him as she begged me to not fire him months ago. Fuck. I have some insane long nights ahead.

Business does not mix well family.

Hopefully that shit is over. Sounds like he expected you to pay him a good salary to take care of his own mom.

Roger should publicly resign and hold an angry, drunken press conference where he airs the owners’ dirty laundry and tells them to go fuck themselves. Then he thanks Brady for teaching him a life lesson and takes a shit on the podium, which he names Kraft.

I heard Marc Trestman is taking his business elsewhere.

I haven’t seen a Ging take a beating like this and look so impotent since Travis Lulay’s last start for the BC Lions.

I kind of want the Rog to go full blown burn the bridges-and-piss-on-the-ashes policy and declare he’s putting an asterisk beside last year’s and the two Videogate years. Dude makes tens of millions a year, so he’d financially be fine.

It is? I thought it ended abruptly when we got the remenants of that hurricane from Hawaii 5 days ago. It hasn’t stopped raining since (which is actually good for the firefighters because our province was on fire) and we lost power for days. It’s been shitty.

Cuntler, did you write this? Because Drew’s level of hate here is pretty good

“Indiana is a perpetual small-time dump where you go to lord your values over other people because you have nothing better to do with yourself. It is the most direct route from Chicago to the Deep South. There are parts of Southern Indiana that are more Kentucky than Kentucky is. There are Jesus billboards EVERYWHERE. As a city, Indianapolis consists of 10 nice blocks surrounded by an ocean of SHIT. It’s the city IU grads go to when they didn’t get good enough grades to land a job in Chicago. The best town in Indiana is Pawnee, which does not actually exist.”

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

Indianapolis’ only virtue is that there is a major road taking you out of the city in every direction.

The fact that The NFL couldn’t win what was basically an open and shut case should leave Goodell red faced enough to resign but we all know he wont. There was an overwhelming amount of evidence to fry Brady & The Patriots but due to a combination of stupidity, arrogance and ego this case went poof.

I mean forget the mountain of detailed texts with one man calling himself the “deflator”, forget the texts detailing kick backs and Brady’s temper tantrums following an October 2014 game against The Jets in which he complained about the footballs, forget the willingness of the Pats to suspend these two jabroni’s despite their claims that they did nothing wrong. They even suspended them at the league’s request. I mean I know If I ran a business and had two employees accused of something I’d suspend them with no evidence either.

Only a dumb ass as incompetent as Roger Goodell could fuck this up and now Judge Berman has opened the door for a piece of shit like Greg Hardy to try and get his suspension overturned. Thanks Rog.

Senor Weaselo

Something something New England Clam Chowder “You’re just jelly” something or other.

I am surprised it got completely taken off, if like all the other suspensions it had gotten reduced, say, to a game or two, I would have understood. And I would say that maybe with all these reductions and eliminations of suspensions the NFL would do something in terms of showing their work and having some kind of policy for these things that isn’t entirely based on a whim. But we all know that somehow Goodell will end up having MORE power out of this, not less.

Forget James Harrison smashing Brady’s face in, Bernard Pollard’s still a free agent! Hell,

In a world where trolls reign supreme…
*Montage of spots about Brady and Ballghazi*
…one man fought back.
*Montage of clips of Pollard maiming the Patriots*
But there isn’t always a market for heroes.
“Bernard, you haven’t been signed by a team. You’re 30 years old, and you have your Super Bowl ring. Why not just call it a well-played, distinguished career?”
“Because I have unfinished business.”
*phone rings*
“Bernard? It’s Mike Tomlin of the Steelers.”
This fall, when it seems that the going gets tough and the weight of the world is crushing you…
“This just in, Bernard Pollard has been released by the Steelers even though he had 8 tackles and concussed Julian Edelman.”
…you crush back.
“HOW THE FUCK YOU DOIN’, BERNARD POLLARD?”
“Coach Ryan?”
This fall, Bernard Pollard is…
“The other 30 coaches and I’ve got a plan for you, Bone Crusher.”

The Free Agent.

Horatio Cornblower

I would watch this show.

Senor Weaselo

I was going for a movie deal. In the end, even though Pollard’s crippled all the backs, receivers, offensive line, and secondary, the Pats somehow make the Super Bowl and he and Eli have to team up to take down Brady once and for all.

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

All this needs is a close up, super-slowmo shot of Pollard’s need approaching Brady’s knee and then–CUT TO BLACK.

Anyone else hating on Deadspin’s new layout change?

“Display more than one headline and twelve words on your 36″ high-resolution monitor? No, I don’t think so.”

It’s like I fell asleep and everything was normal and when I woke up I was trapped in the large type section of the library and Brad Childress was fondling me.

The only thing I hate about DS is that recently DS is taking themselves too seriously. What happened to the looser days when you could have some serious stuff but other good #CONTENT like Oddibe McDowell’s water bill? Piggy poopballs? Nightmare Ant? I really don’t know who to blame, but it doesn’t help that the only regular writer that was around for the Daulario days is…Barry?

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

It’s also that the commenting community that once made the content worth reading is long gone. Rarely do you see a really clever joke from the handful of talented commenters who still post anything.

Brady will go out and celebrate tonight, get chlamydia from a skanky coed, Gisele will find out and divorce him and take all his money, and Brady will beg Bridget to take him back only to have that door slammed in his face.

You left out the part where next Thursday James Harrison makes his face concave.

Sill Bimmons

The fact that he was not immediately fired shows that there is literally nothing Goodell can do to lose his job.

He just spent millions of dollars in legal fees and most of the rest of the public’s remaining goodwill for and trust in the league as a whole on a pointless personal vendetta that was doomed to failure from the beginning.

And Gary Bettman is STILL somehow worse than this clusterfucktard.

I just got this mysterious phone call from some guy calling me a “fahkin’ qeeah dahkie lovah”, for putting his response on the page. He also said that he and his boys, Sully, Fitzy, Mickey, Whitey, and Red were going to run a train on my “hooorah” of a sister.
So here it is.

I told all you fahk heads that ah Tawmmy did nawt do it. Tawmmy is as innocent as that fahkin’ snow that keeps morah of tha dahkies out of Dahchester.

I’m going to go the conspiracy theorist route: Goodell and the league intentionally did a piss-poor job of it, to provide the illusion to everyone that Golden Boy was treated like everyone else, but in reality having no intention whatsoever of actually punishing him.

Can’t wait for the refs to throw 800 bullshit roughing the passer calls when the defenses get’s within a cunt’s hair of Dreamboat.
