The bad news, the Deflategate saga continues as we are still without a decision from the NFL and Roger Goodell. The good news, Tom Brady is fired up and he is out for vengeance against Goodell and the rest of the NFL.
We all know that Tom Brady is an emotional player, sometimes he even goes as far as head butting Gronk and looking like a mad man on national television. With that said, the Patriots always seem to be in a good position after an emotional event, such as the death of Myra Kraft and any situation that ends in -gate. For example, in 2007, the year after Spygate, the Patriots went 18-1 and lost to the Giants in the Super Bowl. In 2011, after Myra Kraft passed away, the Patriots made it to the Super Bowl and lost to the Giants, yet again. Main point is, do not give the Patriots, or Tom Brady any more motivation or they will make you pay.
At this point Deflategate is nothing more than a lingering distraction and somewhat of a media stunt for the NFL. Whenever Roger Goodell decides to announce his decision he will have the full attention of the media and Tom Brady will be under fire yet again.
Don't get more wrong, Goodell is smart to wait until the last possible moment to unveil his decision. Brady will have less time to appeal and be forced to take the case to federal court if his suspension is not reduced.
Regardless of what happens, Goodell is adding more fuel to the fire and ticking off Tom Brady even more. A mad and motivated Tom Brady is a scary thought for the rest of the NFL. Also according to Rodney Harrison, Tom Brady will,"make everybody pay for what happened," when he returns to the field either in mid-October or in the home opener against the Steelers.
Tom Brady's response to Deflategate will not be shown through words but by his actions on the field.
To the rest of the teams in the NFL, watch out, Tom Brady is coming for you.
