On Thursday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit took up the question of whether the NFL’s four-game suspension of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be reinstated. I didn’t attend the hearing. Tom Curran of CSN New England did.
So I got Tom on the phone for about 53 minutes on Friday afternoon (it would have been shorter if he hadn’t been eating Cheez-Its) and we had a semi-organized, wide-ranging conversation/debate about what it all means in a special PFT Live, no-break podcast.
You can listen to it here, or you can try to consume one of the many lengthy, convoluted articles that are long on legal analysis but short on consideration of the broader practicalities and consequences for the NFL.
The only question left to address is whether Curran was standing on a box for the entire podcast. I say no, but only if he was keeping his Cheez-Its inside the box on which he was standing.
