NFL Lied About Deflategate reports and Will Not Correct Information: Roger Goodell is Solely to blame
The NFL has chosen not to correct reports about Deflategate for no reason. Deflategate has turned into a ploy to destroy the Patriots and Tom Brady's image and Roger Goodell is solely to blame. The multiple leaks from the NFL have stemmed from multiple sources and the Patriots plan on addressing the issue.
According to reports, the Patriots have requested an investigation into the NFL offices to see who is behind the false reports. The NFL, on the other hand, requested that Ted Wells not look into the leaks. The NFL has chosen to handle the leaks on their own. In other words, the NFL will investigate itself to find any wrongdoing in their offices. Point is, nothing is going to change with the false reports, they will keep coming and both sides will continue to add fuel to the fire.
Patriots lawyer, Daniel Goldberg, emailed the league with concerns about the leaks. In his email he states that there were," selective leaks of information and misinformation, failure to correct obviously misreported information, and the like, are not part of what the Paul Weiss firm was asked to investigate," and," I understand that the league has opted to investigate those matters internally". Plainly, the league will not do anything about the leaked reports. An internal investigation is a joke, just like the Wells Report and the entire Deflategate ploy by the NFL.
Roger Goodell also got in on the action following the release of the Wells Report. Goodell stated that," If the entire investigation had been conducted by in-house NFL employees instead of an independent law firm, I would still view it as a reliable basis for my findings and conclusions," plus providing Tom Brady with a means of his misconduct to the league.
Based on Goodell's words, it wouldn't have mattered what he did or did not find, he was going after Brady and the Patriots regardless of what the Wells Report had to say. Goodell will never admit it but he has all the information he needed, even though it may not be the information that he wanted. Deflategate is clearly a ploy to destroy the Patriots and Tom Brady's reputation based of off false information. Chris Mortenson was in the center of the entire Deflategate debacle.
Mortenen released the original Deflategate report that stated that the Patriots had 11 of 12 balls significantly deflated. The information that has led to the severe degradation the Patriots reputation has now been proven to be false. Mortensen finally decided to break his silence this afternoon to discuss his investigation into Deflategate.
Some main points from the conversation: Tom Brady was never mentioned in Deflategate until Bill Belichick brought him up in the press conference after Deflategate broke out. Also Mortensen believed that the NFL should have never hired to Ted Wells to investigate, the entire matter could have easily been solved by competition committee.
In his conversation, Mortensen states,"Nobody from the NFL ever identified Brady as being the target of an investigation in that first week we are talking about, whiting three days of the game. Brady's never mentioned. The Patriots are never mentioned," if that holds true that how did this entire investigation turn into a sideshow that has sapped the attention of mass media for the past six months.
Besides Mortensen's queries, he has no bad blood with Robert Kraft. Kraft, in his press conference following Brady's suspension, made it clear that he has beef with the NFL.
The Patriots will continue to prepare for the 2015 season and the NFL's ploy will soon fall apart. Be prepared for Brady in week 1 against the Steelers at home on Thursday night. #FREEBRADY
