If it were as much of a sham as people feared, the report would have nailed BB. Certain things the law firm just wasn't putting its name to.( . ) ( . ) and (_!_) said:
Hasn't this always been nothing but a PR battle?
Lots of posters here have tried to apply pseudo-legal principles to this investigations and are hung on on things like burden of proof or lack of evidence. But none of that has ever mattered. I am 100% confident that this report was written the way it was for a specific reason. That the delay was not to complete an investigation but to think though the various ways this could fall out and how it could be messaged/controlled.
We might never find out the reasoning or understand it, but there is certainly a reason that Brady looks like the bad guy and not Bill or Kraft or the Pats, etc... It was a sham at the beginning, it's a sham now and it will be a sham when whatever "punishment is announced"
