Shank's Second Victory Lap

Tom Brady's four game suspension for his 'involvement' with DeflateGate was upheld by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, and Shank couldn't be happier about it.
In a 20-page decision that was released at 2:32 p.m. Tuesday, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell upheld Tom Brady’s four-game Deflategate suspension. In the day’s most shocking revelation, the commissioner revealed that Brady ordered his assistant to destroy his cellphone on the same day (March 6) Brady was interviewed by NFL investigator Ted Wells. Brady did not disclose this development for several months and it was not confirmed until the day of his suspension appeal hearing, June 23.

What do you say now, Patriot fans? Still think the NFL is out to get the Patriots? Still think Tom Brady is clean? Still think this is a witch hunt?

Of course you do. And that is why at a time when you should be embarrassed, you are probably emboldened.

Please. Give up. It’s time for local loyalists to parachute down from Planet Patriot and get in touch with reality. Stop twisting yourselves into knots to justify the petty crimes and coverups of the Patriots and their quarterback.

Dan's against cheating - but supports the likes of Barnicle and Borges.

Both odd and sad.

Yet you know this bozo is going to vote for Hillary.

Shank obviously does not know what constitutes destroying evidence - he needs to see Sally Jenkins and Matt Chatham's recent missives on this issue, for they cut to the facts - both noting Ted Wells got all the information he wanted from Brady's phone. Brady's phone wasn't important until Goodell needed a reason for it to be. Jenkins notes Goodell stabbed Ray Rice in the back; when TMZ released its version of the elevator video, Goodell called Rice a liar, except as the AP noted at the time (examining the entire video as opposed to what has generally been shown on the news) the video verified Rice's testimony to police and the league. It's the pattern with Goodell and Shank's laziness becomes worse because he won't bother to see readily available facts that refute Goodell and thus refute reason to attack the Patriots.
