He's not always diamond she go. One on Tom Brady based on the preponderance of the evidence and so does what is hard as people thought I was gonna be kinda got the idea. Day after day before study to wealth report that this was gonna come out harder first look like what's he gonna be suspension yes now four game suspension on Tom Brady. The league is saying that we are not going to tolerate anything that compromises the integrity. Of the game we'll stay in my opinion. Initial reaction is certainly that was heavy handed and how I'm not a lot jumble the surprise boardgames needs. And a million dollar fine I wouldn't expect here particularly they Premier League has the whole world hey disciplinary actions fair game. It's almost a wait to justify their god complex. Inside the patriots the ability bit smuggling. Sent shockwaves. Part of the facility I think it is viewed as it. Streams and the patriots really feel like that sciences what explains that and that they're not. Definitive proof that they otherwise. WGR's. Sports Radio 550. 705. This lovely Tuesday morning Howard Jerry that's you with you here on WGR. Schedules to some odds and how. He penalties on the during the patriots are playing out this morning we're getting your reaction to an 8030550. Or 88550. To 550. Fair unfair what did you think of everything the suspension for Brady the million dollar fine for the team in the forfeiture of two draft picks including a first round pick. Ian. Tony sixteen. You can vote in the web poll about that as well a WG that James Webb pulled out. Most question what do think about the NFL's punishment Tom Brady and the patriots it's awesome. I didn't make that golf courses but it's pretty much the answer. It's too much got a overreacted. Wore it fits the crime they got what they deserved it's did get a giving guests of the percent yes that's how many people are voting it's too much the and it's NFL overreacted. 12%. Received IV EEI our sister station at all has a web Paul all look at that at the same Paul. You know may be different results Woolsey 12% you said Matthew. I'm go to with lower. Lover that's got to change the poll. It's his. This is like you know the president caring every state it's 7% say that the overreact it's all. I'll change it in Bosnia will change to whole the whole AFC east of the patriots now no longer the favorite in the AFC east share your thoughts on the suspension. Whether it's fair or unfair and by the patriots now they still the favorite in the AFC east or do you think this changes the division completely. Eagle real but it did Johnson get to the scheduled but objects that mentally it's what would you like to know what Aron shots are friend or shot from football outsiders what his projections said about the AFC east now. He has the dolphins now as the favorite and just projecting what the record could be. Eleven and five projects the bills at a debate which I think there's always a group the teams that are somewhere between 10679. And special teams are missed field goals horror lock there you know things are involved that. And being the difference and I think a lot of people around the league would see this team that way. Dolphins are three games but it in the bills and that's what he's got on the why why analytics. Her. And ruin it. While. I don't I don't know being three is better than the bill maybe they are I just don't I don't I don't care what I'm sorry I don't care. I just don't care cared here the updated odds the dolphins play Brady twice the bills play and one's. Advantage bills. Right absolutely. Super Bowl odds by William Hill patriots super ball lots have gone from seven to one to twelve to one I think it might be good Vettel won. The schedule is. Over waistline it's easy Wheldon give you over under to the opening number for over under on wins was. Ten and a half. Now it's ten men like an older. They're still there's so Anton ready for twelve games. If not more that element you know they reduced the suspension morbid at least twelve of the sixteen games now they Wear favored by six. Opening night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Now the current line is patriots favored by two. Those of the major numbers. Now okay point. Schedules you ready. Colin White you can pick these guys ready but still little pick what's going right so for let's operate on the four game suspension stand OK okay. New England would Jimmy drop below assuming Jimmy grapple with the quarterback home Pittsburgh they could win that game. They could win that game. Pittsburgh had a lot of strange losses last year there weren't great look Garrett sorry no let NFL suspend his golf game. I'll give it to Pittsburgh. Casino in laws there at bills. Are lost home Jacksonville went. And at Dallas. Lost night so the patriots are one and three. After the first quarter of the season maybe too into a tentative than that but Pittsburgh won a jot down a two into under the one and three. Bills play Indianapolis. Been. The toughest game pick of the year. A minute did you turn the tables on me to take in the bills and I thought it would happen I didn't turn any tables are chipped and two I'll give them a lost to the colt's okay. Home patriots win. At Miami. It's. Went in and home giants. We've kind. One Miami's schedule at Washington. Win at Jacksonville went home bills have you have the idols winning. Home jets win there's three and one. The jets. Home Cleveland. Win at Indy. Loss home Philadelphia loss. And you have them losing at Miami's of the jets are one in three. Itself the bills in the dolphins are three and one after the first quarter of the season the patriots are to enter into or maybe one in three eyed after two into than the divisions mean. If they're two games back. Win. Twelve games ago. Adding that I think really I think one and three I don't even with drop all right they're not going owned for the probably not losing at home to Jacksonville. With Jimmy drop below even as their starting quarterback. So your best case scenario. Is one and three for doing. Does one and three at doesn't bury them right one and three. After four games with Brady playing the next twelve. I don't think it's enough to bury them at two down in the loss column. They're down head to head tiebreaker with the bills but twelve game to Brady come back and play including five of the six in the division. Is that enough to bury New England at the division even though they're down two games after four weeks. Remember last year there were two and two after four games they got crushed in Kansas City there were two into. You and I threw a party you know they went ten into the rest of the way. So to idol big. This four game suspension if they want Owen four out of the crush them a schedule as they I mean really yet there's just nothing on their schedule after that game they go to in the first game back for Brady will be at Indianapolis it's awful and really after that. Three straight home games jets mammy Washington issue and all those. At the giants extremely winnable war then the bills for the Monday nighter there. In the next big game is that Denver so really 123456. The next seven games. Who are games that Claude lose now may be go five and two. And they got Philly at home that's at home and at Houston Tennessee at jets at dolphins it's really odd that last such. Brady gets suspended because the patriots cheat by having him have some sort of facial reconstruction surgery in wearable Rob Lowe Jersey and have him play anyway well the we. What we really should be asking is how are they going to cheat from here. To overcome this suspension somebody tweeted a picture last night of a guy wearing a patriots uniform with a big full beard saying. Patriots have just announced the signing of was like Dorn Grady yeah. And a well just like Bobby bell or not done fake mustache and the Mets. Is Tom Brady got to be worse without the plated football's you know we all expect to be real and still be really good at the throwing the football I might need played football comfort. Tim where Rio Aaron Rodgers over inflates them comfort. Same reason that some baseball players worker clogging differently than others rights and reason. Think this would have more effect on the game and something like that mean in the grip the ball better he get a little older feels little more slick. As strong anymore I don't know why. I would think that it's just in general it would be a little harder to throw he's used to do it one waning definitely can't cheap this way. 803055. To join us. Those that are would rejoining us as well Stephen in California you're on W jogger read ahead. Good morning gentlemen had a quick question on others. Fine and and suspension works out if that state visit. It's great to make a 500000 game. He's going to be illiterate and he's not gonna get paid two million dollars so hot at that affect first stop that salary cap. For the patriots and second up that the page it just Saban two million dollars how it one million dollar fine that bigger deals since source stating. Two million from paying very. Suspended money that money that would go to suspended players goes to like a donated goes through military politicos like a buyer fond OK they like the NFL PA is player when it. Yes they will have to pay the money that Brady would have made it goes somewhere else but he's he's still counts under the capital gets capped breaker and his salary still counts as if he's playing. So technically it's a three million dollar payout. Through that's fine itself crack crack. I mean the pay out to Brady is the same. Well dog the great they get the patriots are still paying two million dollars instead of going to time rated a or somebody else is not a fine it's in Brady's on the lose them and they're gonna pay the money no matter what debts is being re directed. So bad. Just declare whether they're also not lose taken it on the cap dal civic and they couldn't bring in a quarterback for four weeks and say hey we're going to be two million dollars. Oh sure they could cut it and I've been teams don't really ever have to worry about the cap. It's very rare sight I wouldn't think I would even think about it there's no cap the exclusion for the for the for the for the suspension now he still counts and if they do and bring anybody else and that. Other person would still count there's there's the guy for your answer yours where fines ago. Disease eighties. Maybe fines and suspension money go to different places is that possible non thinking of fines. Maybe Eric windows and that that degrade it grotesque bills setter would Jonas and the AT&T out. And Erica touted Gerri good morning aria. Here are yours or that we're two NFL fines go where does that money go. Out other worker at a culture in okay yacht Rahm. There are wonderful. I brought it here it says that there. Distributed to various charities those assisting former players administered by trusts set up by the league in the NFL yet. That's fines but I don't know about suspension money. If you're suspended so. We'll try to find so Eric what was your protection last night when you heard the news. You know outpost recruiting. You know either I didn't know how or sale would come no other. I'm probably elude her to the situation. Not understanding. Understand what happened this or the ball being deployed abroad. You know with him not turnovers text messages and what they found in you know the language is kind of unclear words. He may or may not have. What it just seemed a little ambiguous book organ so stretches very serious bird oh top players early. Now you know you just happen to be in the same division with Tom Brady this just in so. Were you like applauding. Were you happy that should on the face Tom Brady out how'd it is the reaction any different for you. In other guys in the division as opposed to players around the national football. You know probably. You know anyone in the area see. You know we never wish injury upon anybody who limited. Suspension. The patriots are worst. Dump him without. Number structure. When it comes to you know you can edit some teammates said they were there they wanted. You know they target Brady and Rex Ryan thinks he said he keeps he wants the patriots he wants brave but by the same time. I don't know what what's it like to have even gone through rule. A time or another team is accused of being less then on the up and up cheating lying whatever it might be when it comes an NFL investigation you play in the same league. I'd imagine that it's disappointing to hear that any team would do that at the same time there's probably of I don't know balance slots teams are always kind of pushing him blow. Yep for sure you know there are totally in the benches and you know everybody's looking further urged. Looking for you know a statistic they can use certain words you know some way that they have put themselves in losing the war in. You know divide us that the talent so so equal. Burke or close to equal throughout holy and in the patriots into reader as doormat you know. You know with the formation and against the ravens that they are door bells are really tough deal for them to prepare for and you know this seems like another one of those deals where. In other dude put in the envelope very critical edge. But as a repeat offender in Italy came up for our. Did you Erica guy is was there any talk at all. Whether any whispers or rumors or anything about new England and Brady and football's was was anybody around the league talking about that stuff before it became public. Now I'd never heard anything of it. You know some guts instead of sit and then you're you know my assault on them. You know on warm water ball in north sidebar or whatever but never before came out not on the board believes that. They really did notice that. Did you did you have you ever talked to any of the quarterbacks on the bills' roster about whether or not these guys prefer an under inflated footballer anything in any of that stuff. Now. He got out of order if market seller public heard disputing that I handled ball every play. But. We've we've always been really consistent with the locals were put out there up to my knowledge. And I'm assuming we know little loose. But generally that's how we voted on they entered. So he's out assuming that they don't reduce the suspension on an appeal Brady is out for the first four games including week two against you guys. How do you think that impacts the AFC east race I mean it's been. They're division they've owned it they are the kings of the division and it's tough to knock them off does this make this race wide open. It's hard to say this early. You know anytime you take note of really good player. Offered scene that that government in how to read in last night on some. Weeks that they were talking about how to point spread or changes that there in the and and that well Richard you don't meet up. But in the literal about their starting quarterback those were ordered to plug a stopper anything the World Cup are starting quarterback but. Leo though they'll make a push him and I'm sure of though have a really good team again next year and and that's good because. You know we know we have a lot of companies that are in the glow in there and you know wouldn't want there'd be a whole lot of excuses. We do put their now. Eric Wood Willis here on the AT&T hotline the bill's going through voluntary workouts again this week are now as far as your team is concerned Eric let's talk about what's going on. Up front there's. Wanted to know what the starting five are gonna look like on opening day with -- all the talk from Rex Ryan and Aaron Crow or up playing the five best guys let me start with you. Are you senator. Played exclusively that are so far in. Come unhappy about that that's. Become a comfort zone but you know we're gonna put our best and then whoever that Libya and it'd still be fun watching got beat a lot of guys that come back hungry that salt you eat. Look at new about the let your order cracked that starting lineup so. Noted it should create a lot of good competition which courage improvement. And it made about mandolin. The the running game. Has been stressed a lot. By the new coaching staff you know ground and pound they really think it's going to be a critical portion of the seasons running game struggled last year this just in you know that their excel. Why would you believe or why would or why could the running game be better this year. In other a lot of things will go into that. Nothing burger guy like. Osama oil great personnel. We we will grow on the office on your that are immediately. Some young guys well I hear though that will improve come here to. We had some guys maybe playing positions they weren't. All the time comfortable where. That one group. And and I just a lot of confidence that. As a group will make it would make a big strides this year there and in the dramatic semi coach Roman run game. Says has always produced. My I've always been a fan of what they did on their roots are still. Sort during the ball ended up we're excited. Our program and our side. What do they do and why why are you offended the scheme why do you like it. Supported these characters that are that tried overload side it. It puts you voted opposition. Here's he would have always been on the aggressive. You know they shipped the emotion. They run it on a different schemes inserts. That are tough to prepare for. What is it that much different from the guy that we offer Obama is they're saying but. The markets open wheel that go different one back over the back nobody is saying. A little bit different outlook on the optical line and it makes it really tough prepare for bush. Color comes out who's been divorced or recruiter who. There won't let it occurred Arab level not involve the ball. And that's on remote work continuously trying to emperor. At just one of the burn. Top step prepare for air which state. Tough also to actually get a handle like it would be more complex. For Matt Cassel four EJ Manuel for guys for you as well I mean in other more responsibilities more things to know more terms overall. The temperature and you know luckily we got this now we were able. It made her do Walker's. On the field in edit it's a real lot to learn. To this is the biggest play book I've had to learn and pin and had a well. And noted with coach Bryant because I'm assuming our defense that doesn't probably their toughest political and as well put. You know our court system here. Outlook are off. You anticipating a spirited training camp once the defense. Start trying to take on this offense in the offense tries to do the same. The other man's. The American auto stop its opposition bells with the new steps a lot of guys you're fresh slate. There and you know that although. We do pretty spirit carried series that are. Eric would witness bill setter here on AT&T hotline Eric thank you come analysis morning. Good luck the rest of the offseason workouts and then whenever they're done enjoy the rest of that the summer actually. Barbara. Thanks Erik Erik here on WGR are talking about Tom Brady and the suspension. And the penalties fair or unfair and the AFC east. In that light open now or do you still think the AFC east. Favorite is. The New England Patriots. 8030550. Join us 888550 to five feet to talk more about. This with you take your phone call sell pot Joseph who's continuing to cover the bills workouts this week. And we'll have articles at WGR 550 dot com cell will join us at 8 o'clock. We'll get an update on Mike Babcock in the sabres coach search coming up at 830. But Elliot Friedman from sports net Craig Constance from ESPN at a note he has a column up about two the world championships she's covered over in Prague. And there is a note in there that says Todd McClellan has spoken by phone with sabres general manager Tim. That's the name that it inspected and out there are so apparently the two have at least had a phone conversation eagle 30550. Join us. On WG. Surgeries these. They know how hard that would come though. I'm probably do it under this situation. Not understanding. Understand what happened. Or vote being deployed as foot. Go with them not earning over assessment isn't. What they rounded view of the languages come unclear words. You're mayor Marion. What it just seemed a little of the US book. Or in this race is very serious for there was suffered early. That are put all of us moments ago Tom Brady suspended for game. Patriots find a million dollars forfeiting a couple of draft picks including their first reflection of the 2016 draft. Violating playing roles and failing to cooperate in the subsequent investigation. That's according to the NFL Tom Brady having. Conduct detrimental to the integrity of the league are some of the notes. If you want to read the complete statement from the NFL the actual release with excerpts of Troy Vincent letter to the patriots why they. Came down with a penalty they came down with. But we have that for yet at WGR 515 dot com basically. They broke the rules they cheated in the past they didn't cooperate the investigation. With the investigation when they did speak to investigators. They weren't quote fully candid. What else spy gate. Their prior record was taken into account as well all of that. Added up to the penalties that came down from the NFL yesterday on top rated when of course means he's playing week two against the bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium itself. Your thoughts on the penalties there unfair bought. What about the AFC east. Is doing and still the favorite in the AFC east or does this blow the division wide open because he is missing at this point. Well let's they reduced the suspension by appeal one quarter of the season Steelers. Bills jags Dallas the four games that. Jimmy drop last suitable starting quarterback in the patriots a real fight it to get some calls 888550. Q 550. And will go to Aaron in barker Aaron thanks for holding on your on WG jogger right ahead. They got a I would be a cynical bills and book I'm pretty sure don't exactly looking at for the patriots. Grappled gonna come in April 4 and stone to gain of 15100 yards. And they're gonna end up decide they don't need Brady treated for two billion dollars to first round draft pick. Who portrayal as drastic. Get everything that they law back and he'll go on to win four Super Bowl in the next ten years you will still be in purgatory. It's funny and it's it's not funny it's funny this is so this is the updated version of Drew Bledsoe had a long sliced or whatever neck injury was against the jets. Out of don't worry about it. Jimmy grapple has not come in and throwing for touchdowns a game and for 15100 yards in four starts the patriots have draft a lot of quarterbacks with Brady. And a lot of bad ones really bad ones you got the list I don't to a record where it's one of his quarterback for the bills he's the second best one. This this list includes role on TV analysts in. Brian CP army ABC in there I'll also showed that they draft world order with their dad and president lawyer mallet Ryan now what a lot of guys that have done. Nothing not even got another chance of another team Matt castles the best one he's on the bills and like no one here thinks he's any good so. Before you give give the patriots credit for knowing how to draft quarterbacks they don't. They stumbled into Brady and they've been writing for fourteen years. Which is pretty much almost teams get reports. What's Peyton Manning thinking here's between what's Peyton Manning taking the walk on the field December more than air gauge and hand it to Tom probably non. But contained in this might hurt their chances of home field the first game. Back for Brady week five would be the colts would be not to say like hey here's a week five game that might be a first round bye. You're competing with Indianapolis in new England and Denver are those of the three team streets they are right there for a first round bye if not home home field. Well look if if let's go operating on the assumption they lose three of the four games Brady comes back to play in the patriots are one and three. He's not running the table in the not going thirteen and three probably isn't going. Eleven and one. Sort you know we're talking about when they're having ten or eleven wins which should probably. Be enough to mean they would not one of the top two seeds in the NFL. You know they lose to Pittsburgh by the way and the bills. There's two AFC losses for the down a couple of conference games so maybe a look at at New England having to play in the first weekend. Play being one of the low division winners if they win the division being a low division winners by one of the wild cards. What did you calls illegal street excuse me 803055888550. To 550. American buffalo you're on W jogger right ahead I'll withhold you know good morning guys out of bed ditto. With due to suspensions. Because the person album hopefully year's. Flu activity to it would children. Yeah I don't know what they're gonna you Jeremy is a little more confident that it that I am I I could see it being reduced. Because I don't Roethlisberger comes to mind but there have been a number of players you've had suspensions. They appeal that it gets reduced I think part of will be who hears that you mentioned. Forget who you attributed the story the report Q but that Goodell might hear the appeal. Or Goodell could appoint another talk about the last night that rip Roger Goodell might appoint someone. Think it was that Harold Henderson at least used to be in the management council might still be there that he could appoint someone to hear the appeal I think. I'm not as confident as this thing staying at four games like it's even taken the game often down in which case he still misses the bills commitment to sell liquor to. Often it's a one I don't think so no way. Kliff Kingsbury. A Texas Tech Kevin O'Connell. Couple weathered a case I was thinking of him. Brady right before Brady was Michael bishop. He and state yeah engines and state and yet they've not drafted quarterbacks Jay Walker. Seventh round Bledsoe of course was 931. Round and after that they didn't draft a quarterback. The rubble of the highest one he's a second round pick. So they might really like our rob alone think he's the heir apparent. They draft him they get him in the system for a couple years is gonna play four games this year there are people who liked him coming out east Illinois coming out of there after no he was talked up. A little bit as a guy you know developmental guy down the road could could still good ability but Jane Lazar Goodyear who started four games it was not in the plan for Jimmy around not just that the chances are like most quarterbacks he won't be good. Most are good multi draft although what will there seven drafted this year none of them are expected to be. Well I guess when severe out right but then. Yet the patriots have lived in the fifth sixth seventh round drafting quarterbacks and picking off the scrappy just because they don't have to worry of office. And this time they actually go to drop below the sector so he could be good. What if he's indeed Dalton good well that's fantastic because then the bills and valuable gold beat dec sides. Great if he's an adult look if your ballot check here opened hey Jimmy get me too into it you know get me through this 500. Beat Jacksonville. In all it. If I had my druthers if I were them I'd probably wanna beat the bills make a division game more important in the us but. Gimme gimme a split the first two games beat Jacksonville you'll lose in Dallas or two into Brady comes back and you're still OK in the decision I'm thinking about the post Brady patriots and sometimes people get off me no scared but that guy is gonna be good he's not going to be as good a summary. So no matter what the next quarterback of that team will not be as good as the car for too darn hard. Mean Green Bay has Aaron Rodgers he's really good after Brett Favre but to be pretty hard to adopt Tom Brady. I mean again since 2001. They've they haven't won the division twice. Skate there's only two kinds they didn't win the division since all one in 02 they went nine and seven. And the jets won the division the other time oh wait Brady's out the ACL gets injured in week one so when he's been playing. Only one time in thirteen years has someone other than New England won the AFC east good luck topping that. Like to congratulate the Tampa Bay Lightning for finding a way to potentially lose slash B hurt that buffalo had not yet thought of right it's we've never had the emergency appendectomy have wings know staff and staff infection yes Ryan Callahan out indefinitely in emergency appendectomy. Which means in the offseason I expect every Saber player to have his appendix removed. The voluntarily just so you don't have this so this doesn't strike at the wrong time I don't think that's somebody get Michael's appendix out of there right now. This can't happen in a playoffs while you're there can they take up the councils through a militias be safe about this yes they got anything it's not you know I like all necessary for life or get all nonessential organist athlete let the coyotes did it with blocker ready for us displayed as we've taken out. Let's get some appendix is out. Not immediate yeah I can still live but it seems extreme. It's a little more necessary asking it to ask I collect is it okay we're gonna have your spleen removed a just a little mistake it was in order to take the appendix out as a precaution and while or in there to take a look at that's blame and we see anything. It's coming out we are yanking that thing out don't worry it's for your benefit because now you won't miss any playoff games now. That's cynical game six tonight Montreal Tampa no Callahan. It can be like a weaker to couple weeks that's the kind of think he can return in time. Used to be that that kind of surgery was a little bit longer on the shelf. It'll be fine because the win the game that ranked. And because I have a big camera at Tyler Johnson could have a big game they damn about the other open to options Callahan has not had a lot of pack them this year in Jonathan drew and has got to replace him that's nice. That's nice. Funny tweet from Dell whose area. Bills fan point six shirts goes to charity stuff. He tweeted at the Seahawks are really wish you guys would run the ball. This would be easier to take a Seattle had just won the Super Bowl and the patriots were not the reigning champs. There's that too. Right you're suspended for four games. This is what I said you I thought there would be no suspension because I thought but then Seattle would say one. This is suspension worthy. We maybe could you that yeah in the Super Bowl. But now moves he got the play they win. And then it's up four games. Regulations under thirty day weekend. It got to campus facilities in the pre season games. He goes training camp he can practice to do everything frees hostages in week 13 season games that's for missy Brady right in the British crazies that he just he can do everything with the team. Up until the opener and then he doesn't in the four games Jonathan and all the near on WG yarder right ahead. Com opposite it eat it up through a routine pop for Miami in New England. In Baghdad by helping them vote the BP what that spot on with police suspension. I think I'm more approximately about popular wedding and a jet that went up about a book about well. I'm gonna defeat at shut down it Corvette like Jared Ryan church and home. I pay him at a last year so I don't I don't really where it. They also got torched by Brady and Philip Rivers that are pretty good job on him to. I still think if the patriots division I just I think. Worst case scenario he gets four games there one in three and I still think the patriots to win this division if anything this helps the bill's wild cart. It's one more win you know how every time you had you picked the bill soured you kinda have to add one. Because it goes from me lock loss to an expected win I think so yeah I think they should be too and I'll go to Miami. And but I still think when Brady comes back he'll win of the twelve games probably nine. So yeah he's still look at it maybe ten and six. Possibly eleven and five of drop over and the patriots go to into an operating. CJ and buff earlier on W jogger right ahead. Hey I had imported thank you. To be pretty optimistic on this phone call but. One thing you know I'm obviously pretty happy pretty gotten suspended it he pre heat the patriot. The part in the news a little disappointed because it is. You know I want the the bill armories all of it and really was it important economic. Probably what is hopefully guarantee and against grapple. But also when the bills. Due to division this year that it can happen I that you would all be here again patriots and that are gonna think oh well. It did when did you know that division title didn't count as heated up the plea for equally. And it did in a legitimate he's redirected them talking about how legitimate or question here. I thought it was a pat we have our they'll work. I TJ thanks 8030515. To join us 888550. Q 550.

Or 750 milliliter bottle. Only 99 after mail in rebate Timor specials at premier lines dot com our chairman Matthew with you here on WGR. The punishment for the patriots are talking about that what you think it's fair you think it's unfair. And that I you believe the AFC east is. Why did. Open war the pitcher's still the team to be with Brady serving for suspension possibly less if it's reduced on appeal. WEEI dot com Christopher price here it opens. Iran I honestly I'm not sure. I don't off other markets are doing this are out there in Miami or New York's and atlas and with the patriots fans and media are saying. But I I enjoy very much because it's just crazy pants. So Christopher price here is his college WEEI dot com I've too weak link. I will not be performing in in the Boston acts that occur like laws can't do it Jessica good market down on active shall and it's translated to market down. May eleventh 2015. When Roger Goodell is removed from office in three months or six months nine months or a year. After another flurry of bad decisions will remember this state as the beginning of the end sure there have been awful missteps before. But this one is going to be remembered as the one that. Alternately doomed him. The decision of the league to suspend Tom Brady for four names take to draft picks from the patriots and find the franchise one million dollars would be a joke if it wants so so real. It's the latest example of a maddeningly inconsistent and wildly or archery disciplinary process that continues to make zero sense to those who climatic. From a common sense perspective. Ray Rice initially it's two games for knocking out his fiancee. Brady gets four for engaging in a process that too many quarterbacks has become standard operating procedure in the league. Since signal callers push for the right to retreat the footballs in 2006. Let me say to you. Without Ray Rice punching his fiancee and getting two games the patriots media has nothing to say about this. It's like they're hill to Diana. What about ray rice's two games. Well like I guess because of that no one can ever be suspended for anything because the commissioner made a mistake before. He's not allowed to do anything other than make mistakes. Worse than that one. So. Again the the article itself points out that the column. That that like his whole mistake of Ray Rice. Which I'm remembering right now but it's going to be that Tom Brady's decision will be remembered. Goodell will endlessly be remembered for the woody did the patriots. Watts. Not for concussions. Not for all of the nonsense league has kind of gone through with. Not just Ray Rice but all domestic abuse the no more campaign being a total sham. None of that will be remembered that he over punishing the patriots because they lied and covered up a league investigation. I would like. Fans in Boston to never complain about anything for the rest of their life. Yeah I got four super balls. Tainted you have Red Sox world championships the Bruins won a cup. Is Celtics you have nothing to complain about luck if Roger Goodell is ever fired. There's no way he gets fired because of this now if you wanna write a column that says Roger Goodell. Will eventually be fired and here and because of what happened last year. Fine the mishandling of the Ray Rice the cute game suspension. What what video we'd have even. On the video even though TMZ or whoever was got their hands on the video you wanna bring up that. And Greg Hardy who got paid to not play last year and was finally suspended this year. Or Adrian Peterson or any of the other things that were just completely screwed up by the National Football League last year. Bring data. If these there's no way. He would get fired by the other 31 owners who are probably sitting there going. Way to put it to the patriots no way. That smacks of what you're really full of yourself you really think like I get it you've won and you're one of the flagship franchises of the NFL. Put to have that kind of arrogance. Like. Whoa whoa whoa whoa. While you can do that to us were the patriots in fact if you do that odds you're going to lose your job because we're entrance. That smacks of that well there's gets fired it's not know it's because Ray Rice and and all the other stuff. That has gone wrong under Roger and we got to get the break this whole thing about inconsistent suspensions name a sport. Where you believe you know what. Today half really consistent suspensions are really is the same way Rodman recent league with suspensions. And consistent. NFL cornering the market on the but he does. Quick from Ben bowl in Boston Globe. Someone over there is actually you know. OK with this. The patriots have no one to blame for this but themselves. They've been arrogant and defiant from the start demanding apologies one known were deserved ignoring good Dell's orders a full cooperation and obstructing Ted Wells investigation. It was the exact wrong tactic for team that's been called the principal's office one too many times in recent years. And the commission looking to reestablish his credibility with the public and the other 31 teams now rebels making the patriots pay. That's the reason other sensible the reason the patriots are one million dollars pork today. And Brady's legacy legacy now at least somewhat dated is the way the patriots organization handled everything. Why was wells called into investigate the matter over three months because the patriots defiantly denied any wrongdoing. Right as opposed Atlanta Falcons who were accused of pumping in crowd noise and said. Yeah we did it. Panthers and vikings. Ball had problems they placed football's under heater late last season the chargers used sticky towels and wanna twelve we have called I called about that are later in the difference treat those incidents and deflate gate. Those teams owned up to. They pled guilty pleaded guilty and took their medicine the patriots kick and scream the entire time and mocked the process. Ben bowl in Boston Globe standing election very well done very said exactly what happened. All right if you're on hold paying on. We do have lines open if you wanna get an eagle 30550. On the punishment and on the AFC east race winning its wide open now where you still think New England as the favorite. On south gonna Jonathan moma will talk about this with him. At 830 Elliott Purdue will join us from sports that we'll do little Mike Babcock update but we got played it down to talk about the suspension of Tom Brady with few. This morning on WGR.
