The NFL which suspended Josh Gordon for one year for smoking pot -- and illegally banned Adrian Petersen for disciplining his son -- is thinking about perhaps suspending Tom Brady for maybe 6 games for cheating his way to the Super Bowl.
The message is clear: Be politically correct but win at all costs.
Forfeit all of New England's games for 2014 and the playoffs, make it ineligible for the playoffs for two years, suspend Tom Brady and any staff members who helped him for one season (366 days as next year is a leap year), ban Bill Belichick for life from any participation in the NFL and fine the team $100 million.
In short, go full-throttle NCAA on them.
Under Belichick, the team has been a serial cheating team that the NFL has enabled because it wants high ratings in the Boston market.
This is a team whose owner may have committed perjury in defending a player who murdered two men.
The Seattle Seahawks are the repeat champions as far as I am concerned and (gulp) the Baltimore Ravens are the reigning AFC champions. Also, recognize the Buffalo Bills as AFC East champion for 2014.
In fact, the NFL should not allow New England to draft next season.
The sad thing is this hurts Boston fans. As a Browns fan, I say at least you would still have a team.
(Petersen used a switch on his son. Not a twig or a branch, as some media outlets reported. I wouldn't use a switch, but it is not child abuse.)
