Look, I get it. The Patriots are in the middle of a battle with the NFL. A battle that is eerily similar to the battle that the Saints had with the NFL prior to the 2012 season. Just like 2012, I think the NFL is working with circumstantial evidence, and using that "evidence" to wrongfully persecute the Patriots. Being that the Saints were in the same position with BountyGate that the Patriots are in with DeflateGate, I should be rooting for the NFL's demise in legal negotiations. Well, although I am in agreement that Tom Brady doesn't deserve a 4 game suspension, I hope he serves every goddamn second of that suspension.
Defend the wall? Fuck that. I didn't see anyone joining the front lines when the NFL unleashed a full blown blitzkrieg against the New Orleans Saints. I didn't see anyone up in arms when our entire season was compromised by the loss of our head coach. Why should I defend a wall that isn't mine, when that wall belongs to someone that sat idly by while Roger Goodell took a wrecking ball to our entire kingdom? In the interest of justice, I should want to see the Patriots walk away from this 6 month long charade with a slap the wrist, but this isn't about justice. This is about me being a spiteful motherfucker. If my team can get punished for no reason then I want to see every other team in the league get punished for no reason. I just want to have one other team that I can look at and say "now you know how it feels". If Tom Brady actually ends up serving his 4 game suspension then I am Pro-Patriots, but I'll be damned if I am going to sit here and cheer for Tom Brady to defeat the judge, jury, and executioner. Not when Sean Payton and the Saints were unable to do so just 3 years ago. That might make me petty, but I wasn't born a vindictive bastard that just wanted to watch the world burn. Roger Goodell and the NFL made me this way, and it's about time another fanbase had to view the transgressions of the league while standing in the shoes of the Who Dat Nation. The Patriots aren't allowed to play the victim until I see fucking Garoppolo play the first four games of the season. I refuse to sympathize with a fanbase that not yet knows my pain. So while I am not throwing rocks at the wall, I am certainly not defending it. Maybe, MAYBE, I'll help you pick up the pieces and hurl them at that scumbag commissioner, but that will have to wait until week 5.
