Whether you love the Patriots or hate them, Deflategate should concern you. This article sums up why. (A Harvard professor has even suggested that employers could start asking employees for their phones.)
The NFL is now basically telling the court that thanks to the CBA, Roger Goodell can do whatever he wants. This is a serious matter.

The NFL's conduct is more interesting than what the Deflator did. This is a case that can be best defined by bookend media reports, each false.

It's not just Patriots fans who are noticing ESPN's pro-NFL programming anymore.

I didn't post anything yesterday as I wanted to let the hearing digest and judge's words sink in.

Berman said,

"I'm having trouble figuring the evidence for the conspiracy or scheme that relates to the Jan. 18 AFC championship game."

At another point, Berman said, there's _no evidence that Mr. Brady had done anything wrong in connection with the AFC Championship game. When he proded the NFL lawyer for such direct evidence, Nash responded that they had none. A rephrased question produced the same response.

If Brady was looking for exoneration, this as close as he can come without the judge making a declaration to this effect in his final opinion. But, even if the suspension is upheld as a quirk of arbitration procedure (which was unlikely before these exchanges and seems even less likely now), the clear takeaway is that Brady had done nothing wrong with respect to footballs and their air pressure. The NFL never had a case against Brady.

This will stick in the craw of Patriots and Brady haters. The idiots screaming "Cheaters!" at every opportunity will continue to do so, but only half-heartedly. They now know full well that there's no evidence to implicate Brady. No screaming about text messages or destroyed phone will change that.

The NFL front office is an embarrassment. The fact that they went back to Ted Wells after the hatchet job in the Dolphins investigation points right back at the Commissioner's office. Fool me ones, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. Neither Goodell nor the sycophants he's surrounded with should survive past the next Superbowl. This may be a difficult task but the league needs to clean house from the top down.

As for the case, I said from the beginning this was a $25,000 equipment violation, at best. And that may be the NFLPA's final offer. I'd say, they could even afford to double it -- $8600 for each of the three balls claimed to have been deflated (there were more, but most are within the margin of error) and another $25,000 for refusal to provide the phone (not an actual violation but, at least, there's some precedent for this). So Brady and the NFLPA should offer to pay a $51,000 fine -- no admission of wrongdoing, no suspension, no groveling before the Commissioner. The NFL would be foolish not to take that offer -- and, as the column suggests, a Brady PSA. 
If you're Roger Goodell and the NFL owners who cut his paycheck, you only have yourself to blame for believing in Ted Wells and his horribly incompetent report. That's the biggest takeaway from Wednesday's settlement hearing in New York before U.S. District Court Judge Richard M. Berman.
