I believe he said, "make sure there is a fine line between sports, gambling, and the NFL." Gotta make sure sports and the NFL aren't tied together in any way.Did I hear his answer about gambling and the NFL correctly? "Make sure there is a fine line" between NFL and gambling?
Thats funny.Another RG lie. He said if the Krafts invite him he'll come back. Except, he's the one who sets which playoff games he goes to.
IIRC, in one of the written opinions a judge wrote about overwhelming evidence that Brady was guilty. That's what Roger was hanging his hat on. (This was in response to Curran's question.)No, he said the court validated that there was a violation. If he said what you said, he'd be right.
Goodell said "...it was litigated extensively, as you know, and validated by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals"No, he didn't. The video is like three posts up. I don't need a tweet to understand English.
Is a reasonable descripton of the Second Circuit holding. I think he's citing a single judge's statement at oral argument, which is not controlling and does not constitute 'the decision'>> Roger, Tom Curran, csn-new England. The courts didn't uphold the investigation but uphold the right to do what you did. But that is not the question --
>> Tom, if you look at the second circuit court, the decision they said is that they were compelling, if not overwhelming facts here and that is the point that I just made.
Single judge statement in the 2nd appeal.One of my friends from the DFG Legal thread may remember better, but I do not think this:

Anyone have a different recollection of the opinion?
Kraft already responded "OK if we win the fans would love to welcome you to the 2017 opener"I'm confused. I thought that the commish goes to whatever game he wants to go to. Did Kraft used to specifically invite him and now doesn't? Do most owners ask him to watch a game at their stadium before he comes?
I don't like conspiracy theories but his answer smells fishy. You can't say though that there is bad blood between me and the owner/coach/players/fans of that team and that is why I am avoiding them. Maybe he gets invitations from the owners to see specific important games to the franchise and Kraft doesn't want him. He might have the ability to choose to go anyway (I assume he does) but doesn't want to which he didn't say or would want to say because that would lead to someone asking why he didn't choose to go anyway. He could respond with that he was asked by another team to attend a different game. Anyway, I've idly speculated too much. His answer(s) didn't sit well with m and left me feeling a mixture of confusion and irritation.
Serious Q. If NEP win the SB, and Goodell shows up to opening night, wouldn't it get very very ugly? Perhaps not physical violence, but "Go fuck yourself you pile of shit" type comments, screamed at him repeatedly, should he show his face on the field before the game, etc.? Would Kraft & Co really want this?Kraft already responded "OK if we win the fans would love to welcome you to the 2017 opener"
