Tom Brady cant surrender under NFLs strict settlement terms

Tom Brady cant surrender under NFLs strict settlement terms
tom-brady-cant-surrender-under-nfls-strict-settlement-terms
Wednesday came and went, and the NFL and Tom Brady remained Broncos Ty Sambrailo Kids Jersey deadlocked. No settlement. No ceasefire. No discernible movement to dim the lights on the circus. Unless the NFL changes a key stance in the coming days, that won't change. From the NFL's corner of the ring, the key to unlocking the settlement is Brady having to "embrace that he shares responsibility" for the deflation of footballs prior to last season's AFC championship game, according to a source who spoke to Yahoo Sports on Wednesday. Further, an ESPN report said the league office insists Brady must "accept" the findings of Ted Wells' investigation. But the source said Brady is refusing, and that New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft remains "100 percent" behind his quarterback's stance. Brady apparently sees any culpability as an admission of guilt. And agreeing to any form of "guilty" is off the table. Tom Brady won't do it. He won't surrender any more flesh. From a legal perspective, he can't. If he did, he could be committing perjury. Think about that. We're not talking about his lawyers or his friends or some publicists. We're not even talking about some awkward news conferences or canned interviews. We're talking about the man sitting under oath, testifying – under threat of an even bigger legal problem should he be caught lying since his testimony has since been filed into federal court – that he is innocent. The NFL wants him to reverse that course to achieve a settlement. Essentially: Accept guilt; admit perjury; yield to an endless public crucifixion for the remainder of your career. What sounds more feasible: the Seahawks Frank Clark Elite Jersey aforementioned "settlement" or this case proceeding into court? Surely there is a way to gerrymander a perjury charge. Every year, an untold number of billable hours (and Windsor knots) are dispatched to achieve such things. But go back and absorb Brady's testimony. It surely doesn't read like his lawyers ever considered a Brady admission would accompany a settlement. Nor does it read like a guy who has much wiggle room to fall on a sword for the sake of the rest of the team. If anything, pages 50-53 of the NFL's appeal hearing testimony should have told the league's lawyers all they needed to know about any thought of a Brady admission: Question: During your whole career now, I want to be very clear about this, I am asking during your whole career, have you ever asked anyone from the Patriots to alter the footballs in any way after you've approved them? Brady: No. Q: Okay. Now, have you ever specifically, so again, very specific question, have you ever told anyone on the Patriots after you've given to them that they should change the inflation level of the footballs after you approved them or do anything about the inflation level after you approved them? Brady: No. Q: Now, what would be your reaction if [Patriots employee John] Jastremski or anyone else in the Patriots was doing something to the footballs after you've approved it? How would you feel about that? Brady: I would disapprove of that. Those answers put Brady in a very Cowboys Chaz Green Womens Jersey specific spot. It infers that he believes he doesn't shoulder any responsibility if footballs were tampered with. He's basically saying, "I never told anyone to do it and if they did do it, I would have disapproved of it." There's not a lot of guilt to accept outside of that. Even if he said, "I had knowledge after the fact and disapproved," that's still not a claim of responsibility. And now? What can the NFL get out of a demand for more flesh? Nothing. The time for reversing course in the Brady camp has passed, from public relations and legal standpoints. The NFL has to see that. So either commissioner Roger Goodell and his lawyers offer another settlement solution – without an admission – or this inexplicably moves forward. To that point, the lead attorney for Brady and the NFLPA, Jeffrey Kessler, lit a familiar landing path on Wednesday: The $50,000 Brett Favre fine. If the NFL had treated Brady like it treated Favre for refusing to play nice in an investigation, this would have all been settled long ago. In other words, Brady can deal with being fined and this all goes away. If that sounds like going to back to square one, that's because it is. This is what the two sides couldn't agree on months ago – Brady's culpability, the punishment, the money, the attorneys. It's all starting over again, just a little farther down the road. But this time around, guilt is off http://www.seahawksofficialnflonline.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_CARY_WILLIAMS_JERSEY.html the table. The path to a courtroom is set. And the ball is in the NFL's hands. Goodell still has an option to pull back. Brady doesn't. Where this goes next depends on what the league office is willing to risk for a little more flesh.
