"This is really important to be here," Lewan said. "I'm here to give back and help out my teammate."

And the Rangers turn around and get Anit Raanta from Chicago for a minor prospect.
|2 days 12 hours ago||A 2nd and a 3rd are not||
A 2nd and a 3rd are not middling picks for a backup goalie. The Lehner deal to Buffao was an outlier. Etem isn't nothing. Hagelin is obviously the better player, but if Etem puts it togeather his ceiling is much higher.

They just fired their GM.

Eichel will be a very good player, but he is no where near McDavid. Its not close.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I think you need to look up||
I think you need to look up the term serial killer. He is a killer yes, but he is not a serial killer.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||You need to let the NFL is||
You need to let the NFL is out to get NE conspiracy theory go. Its tired. If your team is located in LA, NY, Boston, or Chicago you are an absolute moron if you think your league is out to get you.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||The sad thing is this isn't||
The sad thing is this isn't even the worst thing this guy has done. The NFL and the NCAA need to start penalizing teams/schools for taking chances on guys like this.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Notre Dame knew what this guy||
Notre Dame knew what this guy was when they recruited him and they simply didn't care. Its one thing to recruit a guy and find out later that he is a bad guy. Its quite another to knowingly put someone like that on your campus.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||The only ones who think it||
The only ones who think it was biased are NE fans. Also people who use the word haters need to grow up. Everyone doesn't need to love your team/player.
Kraft was fine with the investigation until it didn't say what he wanted.
And Kraft hiring a scientific expert who owns a company that Kraft just happens to be investor in is an absolute joke.
Also NE's fumble stats are out of this world. Something like a 5000-1 probability. But yeah keep yelling nothing to see here.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||It is a rule and NE has a||
It is a rule and NE has a history of cheating. The NFL stated today they are not changing this rule. The only ones up in arms about this are NE fans and that tells you all you need to know. The NE defense of we didn't do it, but if we did the rule is stupid was dumb from the get go. Pick one or the other. When you use both its easy to see you are guilty.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Its just pathetic when fans||
Its just pathetic when fans make statements like this. They suspended my guy so I won't watch anymore. Well guess what they can either alienate the Patriots fan base or the other 31 fan bases. That's a pretty easy choice.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||The Jonathan Martin and Ray||
The Jonathan Martin and Ray Rice incidents both saw players and officials hand over their phones.
You need to realize that this is not a criminal court of law. The standard is more likely than not. It is a priviledge and not a right to play in the NFL. Brady has to play by their rules.
The NFL obviously can't get a warrant for his phone so it is just dumb to suggest that. Using your logic no one would ever be punished for breaking a rule in the NFL.
Players are tested for PEDs all the time and that is way more intrusive than handing over a phone. And guess what their are no warrants for those tests either.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||If it was no issue he would||
If it was no issue he would have handed over the phone like everyone else involved in leagues issues does.
|6 weeks 8 hours ago||Malzahn will pay dearly for||
Malzahn will pay dearly for this. Teams will use this to absolutely murder him in recruiting. Yes he successfully blocked a player from Michigan, but he will be the one who ends up hurt most by this. Saban will kill Auburn with this.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||to NE fans he does. To||
to NE fans he does. To everyone else Kraft comes off as the one bitching and whining. After all he had no problem with Wells doing the report until it did not go his way. He is Mario Lemieux 2.0.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||The scientist that NE is||
The scientist that NE is quoting just happens to co-own a company that Kraft is an investor in so what he says means basically nothing.
Public opinion is on the NFL's side. Kraft might want to look at what happened when the Rangers tried to fight the NHL over their website. Owning an NFL team is not a right. Its only NE fans that are flipping out about this.
Also saying deflator meant losing weight is hilarious.

Kentucky pretty much eliminates your playing time argument.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||The NFL has consistently said||
The NFL has consistently said that you cannot refuse to cooperate with an investigation. Also the it didn't matter argument falls extremely flat when you consider all NE did to hide what they were doing it. If it made no difference why did they go to such lengths to hide what they were doing?
|6 weeks 6 days ago||The world is against us||
The world is against us argument is something fans love, but in reality means absolutely nothing.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||There is consistency in the||
There is consistency in the fact that you cannot just decline to participate in an investigation and get away with it.
|7 weeks 6 hours ago||Well the NFL and all the||
Well the NFL and all the legal people who have commented disagree. In past investigations including Ray Rice people handed over cell phones. You can disagree with whether they should have to, but you can not disagree with the fact that this is standard practice in the NFL.
|7 weeks 7 hours ago||The standard is more likely||
The standard is more likely than not. This is not criminal court. There is a difference. The you can't prove I 100% did it argument does not fly in the NFL or civil court.
|7 weeks 7 hours ago||You can hope that, but no one||
You can hope that, but no one outside of NE actually believes that. He broke a rule and than refused to cooperate with the investigation. In the NFL that is grounds for suspension. Guys get suspended for pot and they haven't sued and won that fight yet. Why on earth would Brady win a lawsuit about something that effects the game and is specifcally against the rules? The answer is he won't.
|7 weeks 7 hours ago||That is not the listed||
That is not the listed punishment in the rule book. Those who say that it is are lying.
Mike Florio "At one point, in an obvious effort to downplay the violation, Yee said that the penalty for tampering with footballs is only a fine of $25,000. And that’s just false." "The key words are “including but not limited to.” That’s a very common phrase that appears in thousands of statutes and rules and regulations. It means that the punishment can be greater than a $25,000 fine. And Yee, a graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law, surely knows that.
|7 weeks 7 hours ago||He's going to be suspended||
He's going to be suspended for both. When you play in the NFL you cannot just decide you will not cooperate with an investigation. People can go on about who he doesn't legally half to and that's true. But that does not mean the NFL cannot suspend him for his refusal to do so.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Where was the outrage when||
Where was the outrage when the Falcons and Browns got in trouble. Or the Cowboys and the Redskins? Just because Boston sports fans belove their teams do it the right way doesn't mean every won else has to believe it. The Patriot way has included now 2 instances of cheating, steroids, a DEA informant, and a triple murderer. A real classy organization.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||They aren't just claiming it.||
They aren't just claiming it. It is a fact. Also you complain that you can't hit people and then say now you are watching soccer. You do realize how irrational that is do you.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Robert Kraft's speech about||
Robert Kraft's speech about wanting an apology will go down with Mario Lemieux's bitching about people hitting Crosby as two of the dumbest and tone deaf comments ever made by owners.
Also when NE's defense consists of "you can't prove it with 100% certainty" and "if we did do it it should not matter" its obvious they are guilty.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||You misread the rule book. It||
You misread the rule book. It clearly does not limite the penalty to a $25,000 fine.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||In this instance that isn't||
In this instance that isn't true. You aren't going to go on to say a UCLA blog and see people blindly defending the Patriots.
