The NFL says it is working with the players union to gather more information from the New England Patriots medical staff and star quarterback Tom Brady, whose supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen, said in a TV interview Brady suffered a concussion last season.
I went to my first patriots game in 1975 with my dad. I have been a fan ever since. They had many horrific, "punching bag of the NFL" seasons over the years. However, the last 16 have been a mind boggling and unprecedented run of success. Over the last 16 years they have played in almost half of the Superbowls, and won nearly a full third of them. Crazy.
They have had their share of controversy as well. Everyone of them an absolute made up mess of bull in the name of appearing tough on the winning team. Every point you can make about cameraplacementgate and madeupcrapaboutballpsigate can be easily and completelyrefuted.
Not this however. If it turns out they skirted concussion protocols, especially with the miracle man, Tom Brady, I can't defend them. Player safety is way too important To take short cuts around, or pay loose with the rules. Nope. I will not defend them on this.
That said, Someone put a gag on Gisele.
