William C. Rhoden, writing for the NYT:
The ruling clearly is a victory for the New England Patriots,
for Brady, for the N.F.L. Players Association and for critics
who argue Goodell has too often acted arbitrarily and
hypocritically and even hamhandedly in administering discipline.
But the decision did not address — because it was not asked to
— the more important issue of sportsmanship that was at the
heart of the suspension, and of what Brady knew about a supposed
plan to deflate the footballs he used in last seasons A.F.C.
What a weird saga this whole deflate-gate thing is. Feels more like a storyline from pro wrestling than from a real sport.
