→ Tom Brady in position to put NFL on defensive over deflate-gate probe

Dan Wetzel on the Wells Report:

It’s not fair to Brady and the Pats, who are put in a hostile place. It’s not fair to the Indianapolis Colts and the rest of the league that deserve a truth that should be accepted.

The release of the evidence acquired, no matter where it pointed, was all that was needed. The public didn’t need Wells to tell them the most plausible scenario. They already knew. They could’ve figured it out based on McNally carrying that bag of footballs into a bathroom that locked.

Yet by having Wells overstep acceptable standards, the strong parts are weakened, the water gets muddied and the entire story gets exhausting.

I am not surprised at all that Dan has the best take on this story.
