  • NFL reportedly planning on embedding data chips in footballs to gauge field goals

    Hey, Tom Brady — deflate this football at your own risk. According to the Toronto Sun, the NFL is planning on inserting customized data chips into game balls for the 2016 preseason, beginning next month, and for Thursday Night Football regular-season games. The Sun reports that narrowing the goalposts could be one of the results from this experiment. Our emails and calls to the league for confirmation weren't immediately returned. With a data chip embedded in the game balls, the league's front office could gauge how close each made field goal measures through the uprights. The NFL could also estimate...

The New England Patriots quarterback has granted the NFL Players Association permission to continue fighting his four-game suspension, a source told ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio, even after announcing he is done doing so himself.

    Nearly two dozen engineering and physics professors weighed in Tuesday with a federal appeals court being asked to review New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension for ''Deflategate.'' Papers filed with the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said these experts believe the 2nd Circuit's ruling upholding the suspension lacks any scientific proof and the appeals judges should reconsider an April decision that reinstated Brady's suspension.

    New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady must serve a four-game "Deflategate" suspension imposed by the NFL, a federal appeals court ruled Monday, overturning a lower judge and siding with the league in a battle with the players union. A three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ruled 2-to-1 that Commissioner Roger Goodell did not deprive Brady of "fundamental fairness" with his procedural rulings. The split decision may end the legal debate over the scandal that led to months of football fans arguing over air pressure and the reputation of one of the league's top teams.

NFL commissioner still holds the right to rescind the four-game punishment and declined to say last week if he'd enforce Brady’s suspension this season if the appeal was won, as it was. A fine...

    There is no a conspiracy to put Brady urinal filters in the urinals at gun culture events.  Just because they were at the Gun Rights Policy Conference held at the Sheraton Crescent Center in Glendale, Arizona in September, 2015, and at the Shot Show in Las Vegas in January, 2016, does not mean it is a conspiracy. The urinal screens at both events were all Bradys!  No, not the disarmist Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, but the legitimate Brady company that produces urinal bathroom products!

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady gets his chance to exact revenge on the organization that sparked the controversy that nearly resulted in his four-game suspension for the Deflategate scandal arising out of last January’s AFC title game. Although Brady’s NFL-imposed suspension was overturned in federal court by Judge Richard Berman on Sept. 3, before he had to sit out a single game, it’s fair to conclude that Brady would have a little extra motivation Sunday night in Indianapolis. If so, Brady wasn’t revealing it during his weekly press conference yesterday at Gillette Stadium. Prodded one reporter:...

With the request for Mara’s involvement coming from the court, why would Judge Richard M. Berman be going over Commissioner Roger Goodell’s head?

Yet, only ABC allowed a scant 34 seconds to the Obama administration's release of five terrorists out of Guantanamo Bay and back to areas connected with extremist violence. The contrast is 120-to-1. NBC was, by far, the most lopsided in terms of journalistic priorities. From Monday through early Thursday,...

    What is missing in the 'DeflateGate' NFL analysis? Simple. How the Colts, once succumbing to a 14-0 deficit, had to THEN shift from running the ball 40% of the time to running it only less than 17% the rest of the first half upon falling behind by those scores. It was, after all, "Deflady Brady's" deep pass down the left side of the field to S. Vereen (30 yards) to the Indy 17-yard line that set up the second Patriot score. One wonders what might have happened on that pass in the driving rain had the "underinflation" not been at...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)The death of James Brady -- President Ronald Reagan's press secretary who was wounded in the attempt on Reagan's life in March 1981 -- was a homicide, the medical examiner for the Northern District of Virginia ruled Friday. The medical examiner said Brady died as a result of the grievous injuries he suffered 33 years ago, which means that gunman John Hinckley Jr. could be charged with Brady's murder. Brady was 73 when he died earlier this week. He had been partially paralyzed and in a wheelchair since the assassination attempt, and his speech was slurred. He used his own...

    Vice President Joe Biden used the just-announced death of a former White House press secretary James Brady to call for more gun control. Brady was wounded during the 1981 attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan, and subsequently became a much-lauded advocate for gun control. ..Edit.. Biden, however, made a big deal about Brady’s post-assassination advocacy, perhaps because’s he needs to rally support from gun-control groups prior to the 2016 nomination race, and ended his statement with a shout-out to a gun-control group.

    Advocates of ever more restrictive infringements on that which shall not be infringed almost universally refer to the current infringement du jour as a "modest" "gun control" measure. Examples are far too numerous to count, but here are a few: "Obama unveils modest new restrictions on some guns," "Gun Lobby’s Effective Use of Second Amendment to Scuttle Even Modest Safety Measures," "Leahy Introduces Modest Gun Safety Measure in the Senate," etc., etc. As discussed in this column yesterday, forcible citizen disarmament advocates view "modest" measures as the essential "thin edge of the wedge" to start "progress" toward outright banning of...
