Tom Brady has been telling friends since Jan. '15 he'll go to his grave believing he did nothing wrong. Idea he'd accept guilt is insane.

A lot of speculation had been going around that Brady will try to settle and get the suspension reduced. Let’s be clear that Brady has ZERO intentions of doing that. Any settlement is an admission of guilt and Brady will be fighting this to the very end. No settlement. Even though chances are very slim right now, the NFLPA will do what they can do avoid games. This isn’t about just the 4 games, it’s about his legacy.
In a perfect world, Brady plays every game this year and the Patriots go on to win another Super Bowl, and in a slightly less than perfect world, Brady sits the 4 games, gets extremely pissed off, comes back and rips the poor league apart with all that extra rest. Brady can participate in all practices, but come game day he cannot be at the stadium, which would have been nice for a guy like Garoppolo to have that additional support from the sidelines. But like BB says “it is what it is, we’re moving on”. They poked the GOAT, you don’t poke the GOAT. Ever.
