In the absence of concrete Phillies trade news, the biggest story happening right now is Roger Goodell upholding Roger Goodell’s decision to suspend Tom Brady for four games over his involvement in the so-called “Deflategate.”
The growing consensus was that the NFL was going to make an example of Brady for his lack of cooperation. Many people said they wouldn’t have turned their phones over to investigators either. It was a fair point. Until Tom Brady said he totally destroyed his phone. Not because of this, however. Oh no, no. It’s just something he normally does because he’s either A) full of it (likely), or B) a paranoid sociopath.
*I destroy my phone all the time, but never on purpose. [Editor’s note: He also destroys company-issued Macbook Airs.]
“The decision says that on or about 3/6/15, Brady instructed his assistant to destroy his cell phone. He was interviewed by Wells on 3/6/15. [The] decision also asserts Brady knew Wells wanted information from the phone for the investigation before 3/6, destroyed the phone anyway.”
The worst part about all of this, other than this is a story we’re still talking about? Stephen A. Smith was right when he reported this morning that Brady had destroy his phone. Actually, no. The worst part in all this is that Tom Brady probably lost some really cool pictures of Giselle when he destroyed it. Like, really cool. Did he back up his phone to iCloud?
