'Deflategate' Doesn't Tarnish Tom Brady, Patriots' Legacy -
"...The legacy of Tom Brady is already carved in stone. He is one of, if not the greatest quarterback to ever play the game of professional football. An MVP, Pro-Bowler, Super Bowl MVP and four-time Super Bowl Champion speaks louder than a few "deflated" footballs. ..." see full article

"...However, there are several individuals who firmly believe that Brady knowingly compromised the integrity of the game and that all of his records and accomplishments should have an asterisk next to them.

Was 'Deflategate' About Tom Brady's Legacy Or His Ego? - NPR

"...What intrigues me is, why would he do it? Brady, who has already become a football immortal. So did Brady cheat and put his legend on Skid Row just because it's only all about winning a la Lance Armstrong or was it perhaps more personal?..." see full article

Deflategate confirms it: Tom Brady, Patriots leaving legacy of lies - Los Angeles Times
"...Brady, a former sixth-round pick who has long been considered the NFL's shining example of hard work and perseverance, is now officially a cheater who belongs in the same conversation as a Lance Armstrong or Barry Bonds. The Patriots, who had already been fined and docked a first-round draft pick for spying in 2007, might now be officially the most deceitful organization in NFL history...." see full article

The Brady punch: Disarming a legacy
"...But the lasting damage is to his legacy, and it's why Deflategate matters. Yes, the balls had no bearing on the one-sided victory over the Colts that day, but Brady didn't know that beforehand, just as we don't know how often this deflation has occurred in the past or its effect on other outcomes...." see full article

Opinion: Tom Brady's legacy may take a hit, but not ruined by ...

Stop worrying about Tom Bradys legacy

"...Much like the scandals of the past in football and in other sports, deflategate will erode into a distant memory over time, in part because it's such a non-issue, but also because they all do. When the broadcast of an NFL game posts a graphic about the winningest teams in Super Bowl history, there's no mention of the rule-breaking of teams of the past like the Pittsburgh Steelers...." see full article

Tom Brady knew and now his legacy is irreparably tainted

"...They sought an unfair advantage; once obtained, they proceeded to use it. That's no different from a pitcher doctoring a baseball or a batter corking a bat. The only difference is that the crime was discovered after the fact, thus rendering any possible relief for the Indianapolis Colts that much more difficult. Could they have beaten the Colts without cheating? Perhaps. We'll never know. ..." see full article

The legacy of cheater Tom Brady won't be ruined by Deflategate ...
"...This is a stain that will never go away. But five years down the road, here's the reality: Nobody is really going to care about Deflategate, even the people who are the most vehement Brady critics today. Brady won't be a Pete Rose or Barry Bonds, unjustly kept out of the Hall of Fame because of his own transgressions, he'll be a first-ballot Hall of Famer and it won't be close or controversial. Football is a different animal. Perform and all is forgiven...." see full article
