i think there's more concrete evidence of his long term involvement than the media is leading everyone to believe.
apparently there were texts from the patriots employee who referred to himself as "the deflator" dating back to before the season. i read some of the texts, and bradys named was mentioned, as a was a "threat" (albeit seemingly delivered jokingly) that the person hasn't gone to ESPN...yet
it does feel like the kind of logic that wouldn't hold up in a normal court of law however, i don't believe they've actually proved anything but that there's a 98% chance that brady was aware that this was going on, and that it's been going on for a long time
NFL can technically do what they want i guess, they're not a court of law, so they can suspend someone as they see fit. they're probably trying to make an example to league by suspending it's so called golden boy...suspending him for 4 games is like suspending someone else for 10. also, quick action will help to bury the story sooner than later.
I see your point but anyone can do that to anyone at anytime.
I can text a friend or acquaintance right now, or even post here.......
"Kobe Bryant is a murderer and hes not gonna like the way this murder is going down. He told us before to murder differently".
And Kobe never saw it. Knows nothing of it. Nor does he GAF at all what I'm saying.
But it could still be used as evidence he may have been involved someway?
No......but I'm sure if the press core tmz cats got ahold of it the headlines would read
"TEXTS SHOW KOBE MAY HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN MURDER"
Brady refusing to hand over his phone kind of shows he's hiding the texts that prove he knew.
If you are innocent why provide reasonable doubt in it by refusing to cooperate?
If I was a celeb I wouldnt hand over my phone to some Private Investigator I dont know either. Theres zero confidentiality with a PI. If he finds the pics of me and my wifes secret sex session inside Splash Mountian he could distribute it to the press and capitalize on my privacy. I may as well be hacked and my private data stole and posted online.
Maybe Bradys got side freak. Maybe he talks [expletive] about Robert Craft.....or Roger Goodell. Or the President. Or maybe he has gay porn on his phone. Or makes racist jokes to his black friend back and forth. Or videos of him and Gronk snorting lines before the game. Anything that texts/images/data on his phone could be used to damage his life/image and credibility in some way. Or maybe hes got awesome sex pics with Gisselle and he doesnt GAF if the world sees him nude and hittin it, but in respect for his super model wife cant let those pics be released. Who knows wtf hes got on his phone.
Even if you gave over your private info to the CIA...something of that nature would leak to the press. It always does. Now imagine a Private Investigator having access to that data. Even if you had a iron clad Confidentiality Agreement where he could be criminally and civilly liable if releasing unrelated content "Its more probable than not" he will sell you out.
And it doesnt matter if he deletes the images/texts/etc before he hands over his phone because the many retrieval programs to reassemble the data fragments bytes and restore the files.
Additionally I'm sure Bradys agent and lawyers said "no" not Brady himself.
Remember when the rape charge hit Kobe. The media painted him guilty. They still do. Even though the broad confessed to friends that it was all a lie. People believe whatever the media reports. We dont look beyond the motivations of the story.
Im not protecting Brady. Im just saying theres a lot of negative speculation out there because everyone craves blood.
"Its more probable than not" that there could be numerous explanations for any one action.
See what I did there...lol
