Re: Brady right not to share emails/texts

#4. The NFL exceeded its authority by demanding such messages and then punishing Brady for not complying with this abusive demand (per Goodell, the punishment was partly due to his "failure to fully cooperate")

Re: Pats won't appeal

Re: 18k's with Zero walks...
