    500K to belichick, 250K to the PAts. First rounder if they make the playoffs, 2nd and 3rd if they do not.

    Whatever, lets move on.

    Tying the pick to how good we are just show what a joke Goodell is.

    Doesn't matter. The 32nd pick is like a second rounder anyway!!!

    Haha the draft pick being defined by how well they do this year is not something I've heard anyone predict or mention. I guess this is official tomorrow?

    Destroy the CBA. Let the big market teams rein. End the salary cap. Let Roger Goodell send out another memo and pick up the pieces.

    BB Fined 500k, Pats 250K, if Pats reach playoffs Pats lose first

    If they don't make the playoffs they lose a second and third.

    Re: Final Ruling !!

    Actually, this is not that bad. First round pick hurts, but the suspension would be worse in my estimation. In addition, you know that trades will happen and the team will end up with a decent draft next year. You know there were a lot of people in the league who wanted to see him suspended and are probably pretty disappointed. Glad this is over, but it makes me wonder if other teams are going to be scrutinized this year. I sure hope so.

    Well the Pats still have a first rounder, BB doesnt get suspended. I think that Pats got off lucky if you ask me. I'm surprised there isnt a suspension in there and I suspect it is because of Kraft's influence. Bring on SD!!

    They have San Francisco's first rounder next year anyway. Losing a first rounder (okay, assuming they make the playoffs) sucks, but I think they'll survive...

    Re: Final Ruling !!

    i dont agree the predicate of making the playoffs
    God forbid -if brady misses time and we dont make the playoffs then we lose the 2nd and 3rd for what ?

    I wouldve rather have him decide what picks he want to take and taken them

    this is nothing... this much money is nothing for BB or especially the team AND 1st rounder is no big deal since BB already thought of that... We do have 2 this year... sorry :singing:

    Re: Final Ruling !!

    Well I think the lose of a first rounder is BS (we all know their making the playoffs) but at least BB doesn't get suspended at all.

    I was pretty close on the overall fine. The thing about this being such a large punishment means that we'll have to hear about this for weeks and the commishioners comments make it even worse.

    I don't know, at least the waiting is over.
