The Patriots have been fined $1 million for deflating the ball in the AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts that took place in January. The team will lose a 1st round draft pick in 2016 and a 4th rounder in 2017. Tom Brady will be suspended from the team for 4 games as well.

The New England Patriots are cheaters. It’s that simple. They cheated and had gotten away with it, but now they’ve been caught and will face a sentencing.

The sad part about all this is that Tom Brady is only getting suspended 4 games. The team will only get fined and lose draft picks, but the locker-room guys are suspended indefinitely. Do you really think that they did it on their own, or did somebody tell them to do it?

"Somebody told them to do it and that’s who should be suspended indefinitely."

It’s typical. The hardest penalty always goes on the private. It doesn’t go to the officer, the general, the quarterback, the coach, or the owner. The locker-room attendants are getting the harshest penalty in this scenario.

There is no way they took initiative and did this on their own. Somebody told them to do it. That’s who should be suspended indefinitely.
