Here are a few facts. The New England Patriots have been reprimanded twice for cheating. Coach Bilichick, was caught red handed with an ear piece hooked up to devices in the opponents team/coach area so that he could pick up on play strategies. Bilicheck (Bellicheater), is the leader of a ring of cheaters, not a team of ethical winners. He should have been asked to leave years ago. But, he loves the press notoriety. But, gives them nothing to print as cautiously, calculatingly post game comments such as: "blah, ba, ba, blah, blah blah, blah." I'm sure he is not in a rush to join a meeting of Cheaters Anonymous, already in session.
FACT: Tom Brady, has gone Hollywood Rogue. The phone he possessed and used to text during the Super Bowl game, he had destroyed in his words, to avoid hacking and leaks to paparazzi. Yet, investigators found another phone, registered to Tommy Cheater, in his home that wasn't currently being used, stuffed back in a drawer. Tommy Cheater, was all in for this to play out in the court system of Minnesota because that Judge is often very Player, favorable. Yet, threw a fit with his Attorney when the NFL requested New York for a fair and equitable hearing. These are what any licensed psychologist would define as clear actions of guilt.
FACT: The NFL Commissioner, has to enforce a "Code of Ethics," for owners, coaches and players to know and follow. The Commissioner is required to tenaciously uphold those codes. Due to these responsibilities, a league commissioner is generally not well liked. I'm quite sure of this having held a like position, Roger Goodell, could care less what the venting, complaining, players and fans think about him. He has much better things to do, think and deal with on a daily basis than mudslingers with too much time on their hands. It is his JOB to raise the bar so that the NFL doesn't become known as divisive and deceptive. It is his job to maintain the integrity of the game for all parties associated in league, applying their best every day to play the game of football, fairly and equitably. In other words, those who follow their contractual agreements to the letter. It is his job to uphold the true meaning of good game sportsmanship for us and our children. Rules are created to be followed not broken. I applaud, as well as, support all his efforts as his job is not a one for those of weak mind, body or spirit.
FACT: In the NFL all the owners, managers and players are informed of, as well as, agree to the rule and regulations. It is called an NFL contract.. They all read it, have their attorney's explain it and sign it. But, for a growing number of "Players" the only thing they can remember is to bring their overpaid, incredibly selfish, self-center, backsides to the field to collect their contract money, after a few plays and a big mouth on camera. What are they really teaching our children?
FACT: This is not over. Tommy Cheater, won a round in the fight that is all. I've seen and experienced enough is my life time to know that cheaters never win and winners never cheat.
The NFL has appealed. We now continue to round three. Ding!
