Sims and I first talked about it on February 28th. Since then, dolphin news has targeted both Sean Payton and Tom Brady In the weeks leading up to Brian Flores’ lawsuit, it slowly spread, as more people added details to the reports – even as it completely ignored the largest outlets covering the NFL (ESPN and NFL Network).
The story grew taller stalks. More and more media and fans are waking up to this, even if the outlet that first reported gets lost in the sauce. (For example, twice on Wednesday, I was asked what I thought of the “Brady to Miami” rumors.)
Below is a summary of our reports. dolphins Brady and Peyton wanted. dolphins finally admit it Publicly they called the saints around Payton. The Dolphins privately admit that they have had talks about making Brady a minority owner. But as for Flores’ suit, he was going to become a minority owner Once the week before the Super Bowl. After that, this step was taken for Payton. Later in the spring, Brady’s rights as a player were acquired by the Dolphins.
Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports, who added to this broader series of reports, raised a very good question. The NFL must Exploring dolphins To mess with Brady?
The easy answer is definitely yes. Many believe Brady is the unnamed quarterback in the Flores case that owner Stephen Ross wanted to mess with in 2020. If the Dolphins had a plan that started with Brady becoming a minority owner after retirement and ended with Brady coming out of retirement to play for Team, there has certainly been one or more unauthorized contact between Dolphins and/or Brady and/or his agent, Don Yee (who also represents Payton).
But here’s the truth. The NFL seldom enforces rules of thumb. Because everyone is messing around. Sometimes, but not often, they will pin someone to send a message. If the league wanted to investigate dolphins for tampering with Brady, they could easily do so.
Hackers can easily make a tampering claim. It is very likely that the dolphin defense includes the indication that Pirates messing with Brady in 2020. Because they certainly did.
Absurdity is rampant in the NFL. It is always preferred by the risk-reward calculation, since the risk of getting caught is low. Hell, former pirate coach Bruce Ariane He openly stated his interest In Brady While Brady was still under contract with the Patriots in 2020, the league has never said so.
The League certainly recognizes that it lacks the proper police infrastructure to mess with. Also, the league probably doesn’t tend to find, over and over, that teams cheat so brazenly. Although the NFL has ultimate responsibility for enforcing its rules, the NFL has ultimate responsibility for the subsequent distortion of the Great Shield that arises from case after case punishing the team for breaching the rules.
So the league is looking the other way. Just like in the past. Just as with the evidence, she would be easy to find if she were to investigate whether dolphins had manipulated Brady.
