Spirit of Roger Goodell in Season
Tom Brady had a busy day, being seen carrying a big stick, but speaking softly.
Actually, he never spoke at all.
His presence was enough at the first practice of the new season, and later in the day he appeared as host of his wildly successful charity event Best Buddies.
Brady let others do his talking—and he has no shortage of loving and beloved friends and fans ready to let him bask in the spotlight without discomfort.
It was a day that the NFL chose to announce his hearing will occur on the summer solstice. It was just another example of how the NFL has it in for its best ambassador. They tried to besmirch his charity workday.
Leave it to the foul NFL of independent assassins to decide to schedule Tom Brady’s hearing and human sacrifice on the anniversary of the Druids draining blood at Stonehenge.
It will be a change of season, the world of the Boys of Summer, when the NFL tries to make mincemeat of the Men of Winter.
If you wonder how Goodell can sleep at night, you must always remember that cockroaches don’t have a conscience. They come up out of your drain at that time and dance in the moonlight.
Nice job, Roger Goodell. Your time to go back under the rock nears.
In the meantime, Brady’s silence was golden.
