It is never fun to expose a cheater especially somebody who has been a prolific figure in sports history like Tom Brady. Brady is known as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time and has won more Super Bowls than any other player in NFL history. With that said, one has to question his character and morale given the fact that Brady has been accused of being a cheater throughout his career.
The Deflategate controversy is now seven years old and it still bothers many NFL fans. Brady was suspended without pay for four games of the upcoming season for his involvement, based on “substantial and credible evidence” that he knew Patriots employees were deflating footballs and that he failed to cooperate with investigators.
The NFL even requested that Brady turn over his cell phone so it could review electronic transmission. This was the statement that the NFL gave at the time:
So here we are 7 years later, and Brady has 7 Super Bowl rings. One has to wonder why the guy has not been suspended indefinitely by the league. He comes across as a notorious cheater and even played for an organization that cheated through the team’s history, the New England Patriots. Between Spygate, Deflategate, and of course the notorious Snow Plow game, the organization consistently breaks the rules to get ahead
It seems that Brady has been forgiven for all of his past transgressions, but if he does ever get inducted to the NFL Hall of Fame it should come with an asterisk next to his name.
