There are only three things that are a surety in this life. Death, Taxes and the Patriots and Jets players hating each other.
So with Tom Brady being suspended 4 games, Jets players must be ecstatic right? Not so fast.
Jets corner back Antonio Cromartie has been pretty outspoken towards the Patriots in the past and today he decided to speak up about them again. But this time it was in support.
Cromartie on Brady: "Honestly, I don't think he should be suspended." Says a $25K fine would suffice. (via @FirstTake). #NYJ— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 6, 2015
1/2 Cromartie critical of Roger Goodell on Brady situation: "Nobody is safe. No matter who you are, Roger will do what he wants to do..."— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 6, 2015
2/2 Cro: "It don't matter what the rules say, he's gonna make his own rules as he goes." But notes that players "gave him freedom" in CBA.— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 6, 2015
Excuse me while I pick up my jaw off of the ground. The fact that Cromartie feels that Brady shouldn't be suspended even though it directly benefits him and his team is amazing. Even more so that he is the Jets cornerback defending Brady and not the one that played and won a Super Bowl with him last year.
This comes on the heels of Bart Hubbuch saying that he doesn't see any current or former players supporting Brady.
I don't see any players or former players sticking up for Tom Brady after this transcript was released. Why? Because they know he's guilty.— Bart Hubbuch (@BartHubbuch) August 6, 2015
I guess a bitter rival falls into that category.
