Yesterday was Tom Brady's big day.
His appeal of his 4 game suspension lasted almost 11 hours and while the proceedings were confidential there were some initial reports that it went very well for Brady.
Was told by person in today's appeal that Tom Brady's greatest ally was...Tom Brady. Offered explanations in all areas. Now up to Goodell.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) June 24, 2015
Of course that doesn't come off as surprising. When Tom Brady is in trouble and needs help the only other person that would be great enough to swoop in and save the day would of course be, Tom Brady.
Sources also told Schefter that Brady came off as genuine, earnest and persuasive, addressing every issue raised in the league-sanctioned Wells report during Tuesday's long meeting.
One of the sources called it "an A-plus performance.
The fact that Brady produced an "A+ performance" is also not surprising since it was reported that he would approach the hearing with the same fire and intensity that he approaches games. As soon as I heard that I knew it was all over for the NFL.
Of course, as Shefter pointed it out, its all up to Roger Goodell now. And with that nut job running the show who knows what will happen.
