Shortly following the of NFL's announcement about Tom Brady's suspension Don Yee, Brady's agent, released a statement about the appeals process.
"The appeal process was a sham, resulting in the Commissioner rubber-stamping his own decision. For example, the Wells investigative team was given over 100 days to conduct its investigation. Just days prior to the appeal hearing, we were notified that we would only have four hours to present a defense; therefore, we didn’t have enough time to examine important witnesses. Likewise, it was represented to the public that the Wells team was 'independent'; however, when we requested documents from Wells, our request was rejected on the basis of privilege. We therefore had no idea as to what Wells found from other witnesses, nor did we know what those other witnesses said."
"These are just two examples of how the Commissioner failed to ensure a fair process."
He goes on: "Additionally, the science in the Wells Report was junk. It has been thoroughly discredited by independent third parties"
The best part: "The Commissioner’s decision and discipline has no precedent in all of NFL history. His decision alters the competitive balance of the upcoming season. The decision is wrong and has no basis, and it diminishes the integrity of the game.”
The NFL better lawyer up, this case is going to court.
