The legacy of cheater Tom Brady won't be ruined by Deflategate - USA TODAY
"...None of this means Brady shouldn't be suspended for the start of the 2015 season. He should four games sounds about right. None of this means Brady is any sort of victim, railroaded by an NFL front office out to get him. (What sense does that make anyway, Pats fans who have been filling up my Twitter timeline with this conspiracy theory? Why would the NFL want to besmirch the reputation of its most famous player? This isn't WWE. Football doesn't need heels, particularly not its biggest star.) And none of this means Brady will be remembered as the pinnacle of football morality, or even a follower of it...." see full article

If the evidence was stronger against Brady, then he could face a stiff suspension. As it is now, I can't see that happening.The NFL hinted he cheated. But the problem is they didn't flat out accuse him because the evidence is circumstantial at best...." see full article

Patriots' Deflategate cover-up could lead to punishment for Brady
"...But that punishment whatever it eventually entails; fine, suspension or loss of draft pick(s) may not be as dramatic as many are expecting in the immediate aftermath of the release of the report, which made a strong circumstantial case that Brady knew those two employees were manipulating the air pressure in the balls at his behest...." see full article
