Earlier today Tom Brady's request for Goodell to recuse himself from the deflategate appeal was denied.

The NFLPA is in Brady’s court, calling into question the credibility of the Well’s report and advocating for the New England Patriot's star quarterback whose alleged knowledge of a scheme to underinflate balls has generated unwanted attention and criticism.

Darrelle Revis has no sympathy for Patriots QB Tom Brady

Well that didn't take long. Darrelle Revis spent a year with the Pats and took home a Super Bowl ring. That didn't stop him from throwing out some barbs in a piece that GGN favorite Manish Mehta posted last night In the article, he spares no criticism of Brady and his responsibility for the "-gates" despite winning a ring with Brady.  He never accused Brady of being in in on the cheating, but he's not exactly a Tom Brady sympathizer if Brady was indeed innocent. "Tom was there when they did that stuff in the past." "There's people in the world that get convicted all the time that didn't...
