Re: Brady Suspension Upheld

Here's why it's relevant that the rule was not generally enforced. The collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and the NFLPA says league punishments must be fair and not arbitrary. Punishing one player for maybe knowing that a rule might [more]

My position is completely consistent. NFL Rule 2 "The Ball" was generally unenforced.

Re: Buy, or rent a house?

So what I was really wondering was why people aren't buying up every house in the area to use as rental units.

That's not at all contrary to what I said. I made no comment about whether the rule was easily enforceable or not. (It is.) I said it the rule was "generally unenforced" and that it "probably wasn't broken" by Brady or anyone [more]

Re: Brady Suspension Upheld

Brady's supposed awareness of a violation of a generally unenforced rule that probably didn't even take place

The rule is easily enforcable. The procedures for inflating the balls in what makes it difficult to enforce.
