Tomase: Patriots backed off appeal for a reason


The Deflategate saga rages on, but doesn't it seem like forever ago that Robert Kraft decided to throw in the towel?

In John Tomase's opinion, Kraft's decision to back down may still have an impact on the rest of Tom Brady's appeal.

"Doesn't Kraft backing off tell you they're willing to accept something?" asked Tomase. "They backed off for a reason. You can say that it's simply because they're doing what's right for the league. If they thought their guy 100 percent didn't do this, they fight it to the death. That's what I believe. The fact that they didn't gives the NFL power to say, 'we're sticking you with something, you're not getting zero.'"
