Amazing...
It's the Patriot way I believe it's their arrogance they are saying F you to the league.

Yep. It also would still be making money if someone was at the helm all these years instead of Goodell. TV contracts still would've got done, ref agreements would've been made, new CBA would've been done, etc etc. NFL owners just want a yes man at the top for them.

It's entertainment. Nothing else.
So true. But it's lost some shimmer now. I'm just just sad to see it go down. Everyone will still love it. Mostly advertisers females and half ass fans. I just pray the Broncos can save me. Because this is bullshizzle

I honestly believe something is going to be done - the genie is out of the bottle. We now have the deflategate and the destroyed cell phones, the ESPN article, Tomlin going public, all in a very short period of time.

The public mindset is moving from "maybe they cheated a little last year" to "the Patriots cheat all the time!". Once the NFL realizes they can't get away with the white wash they will flip to the other side. And people will start to go public. And it is going to be one fun ride.

Nothing will be done. There's no new information that's come out since the first incident, only that some people are just starting to grasp the severity of it all. The league refused to punish them then and will continue to do so now, with any meaningful.

Since when did the Denver Broncos become a fan culture of constant whining, crying and excuse-making?

Was it right around the kickoff return that started the second half of Superbowl 48? Or was it the 4th quarter of Superbowl 49?

Let's try to pinpoint the exact moment when the Bronco fan base became a bunch of conspiracy theory crybabies.

To add, it's all very similiar to the Ray Rice incident. Nothing new came out after the video of him pummeling his girlfriend was released. The punishment was set. But after it went into the court of public opinion, the NFL felt obligated to re-address the issue. A supreme sign of weakness. The same is happening with NE. It's been the same **** for over a decade, but now since the public is getting a bit more involved, the league is under more pressure. However, unlike the Rice incident, they won't do anything. It's too hard to do the right thing and will hurt the bottom line in the near term.
