This is certainly much better than when Tom Brady was in court last.
The NFL and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady were unable to reach a settlement on Monday and now Brady’s fate will be left in the hands of a judge.
Monday’s DeflateGate hearing ended without Tom Brady and the NFL reaching a settlement agreement, so the Patriots quarterback’s fate now lies in the hands of Judge Richard Berman.
Berman said that he’ll rule on the case in the next day or two, “certainly before Friday,” meaning the ongoing saga will reach a resolution on or before his imposed deadline of Sept. 4.
“We did not reach a settlement. The parties tried quite hard, I think,” Berman said at the conclusion of the hearing. “In some cases (a settlement) doesn’t happen. “This is one of those cases.”
Looks like Aaron Hernandez is about to go down in flames for the Boston double murder that he was allegedly involved in.
The Hartford Courant is reporting that Hernandez’s friend Alexander Bradley has been granted immunity for the double murders since he was allegedly with Hernandez when he pulled the trigger.
Lawyers for a man investigators believe was with former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez when two men were killed in Boston say he has been granted immunity by prosecutors in the 2012 double shooting.
In a court document filed Monday in a Florida lawsuit, lawyers for Alexander Bradley said they have given Hernandez’s civil lawyers “the agreement for immunity” contained in a letter between a Boston prosecutor and Bradley’s lawyer.
Bossip is reporting that Aaron Hernandez is trying to get the lawsuit from when he allegedly shot a man named Alexander Bradley in the face outside of a Miami strip club tossed since the man won’t cooperate and hand over any evidence.
Hernandez is demanding a lawsuit accusing him of shooting a man in the face outside a Miami nightclub be thrown out of court — because the man suing him is blowing off the court’s order to hand over information related to the alleged incident.
Despite the fact that Hernandez is serving a life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd he still insists of fighting for whatever rights he has left.
It looks like deflategate has been taking it’s toll on Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his wife Gisele Bundcheon.
The New York Post has the scoop, via BSO.
It’s been a difficult summer for Tom Brady, with his professional reputation suffering in the wake of deflategate.
And according to new reports the stresses of the scandal have had repercussions for the American football star’s six-year marriage to model Gisele Bundchen.
A source close to the sports star told People magazine: ‘There have been a lot of stresses in their marriage in the last year, especially during football season.’
The source described how father-of-three, 38, can be ‘nasty and cold’ when engrossed in his own problems.
‘Tom is singularly focused on his career and sometimes Gisele feels left out,’ they said. ‘There have been arguments.’
Gisele headed to Paris alone, where she was photographed wearing a burqua on a visit to a plastic surgery clinic.
According to the New York Post, Gisele allegedly underwent an eye lift and procedures to restore her breasts that she thought were ‘sagging’ following her two pregnancies.
It certainly doesn’t help that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell lives in new England.
Goodell was confronted by a fan while visiting a grocery store in Maine and started chanting “Free Tom Brady,” per NCEN.
Mike Marcello, director of sales for the radio stations WBLM, WJBQ, WCYY and WHOM, went to the Hannaford in Scarborough for some green peppers and discovered that Goodell and his wife were shopping there too.
“I had two choices – continue on my way in life or go there – and I decided to go there,” Marcello said in a video posted on the WHOM-FM radio website.
According to Marcello, he began to chant “Free Tom Brady.”
Wide receiver Reggie Wayne didn’t beat around the bush and gave a simple reason for signing with the New England Patriots on Tuesday.
“I want to win, point blank,” Wayne told reporters on Tuesday, per ESPN.com’s Mike Reiss.
Wayne signed a one-year, $3 million deal on Tuesday after reports came out on Monday that the Pats signed the former Colts star.

I’m not surprised that Aaron Rodgers and J.J. Watt received 99 overall ratings in Madden 16, but I am when it comes to Rob Gronkowski. I could see him being around 95 overall.
Ben Volin of The Boston Globe called out Peter King of TheMMQB.com for falsely reporting that 11 of the Patriots’ 12 game balls from the AFC title game were underinflated by at least two pounds
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen gets a lot of heat for overstating the deflation problem in his Jan. 21 story, but he wasn’t the only one getting bad information from the NFL office. Sports Illustrated’s Peter Kingwrote on Jan. 23 that he was “told reliably that . . . either 11 or 12 of New England’s footballs . . . (I hear it could have been all 12) had at least two pounds less pressure in them. All 12 Indianapolis footballs were at the prescribed level. All 24 footballs were checked by pressure gauge after the game. All 24 checked at the correct pressure.”
On Monday King apologized for his false report.
I think you’re owed an explanation from me, in the wake of Ben Volin of the Boston Globe writing Sunday that it wasn’t just Chris Mortensen who got a bum steer from someone in the NFL about the deflated footballs in the AFC title game. Volin said it was me, too. I reported after Mortensen’s story that 11 of the 12 footballs were at least two pounds per square inch under the minimum limit of 12.5 psi when tested by the league at halftime. I reported that I’d heard “reliably” that the story of the footballs being at least two psi under the minimum limit was correct. As I said on Twitter on Sunday, I believe the person who told me this believed the story was accurate when, obviously, it clearly was not. So, were we used by someone to get a storyline out in public? Maybe … but the reason I’m skeptical about this is because with the knowledge that there would be a full investigation and clearly the air pressure in the footballs would be publicized at some point, the league would look stupid for putting out false information that would eventually come back to embarrass it. Clearly, this story, along with the Ray Rice story from last fall, has made me question sources and sourcing in general, and in a story as inflammatory as this one, you can’t just take the story of a person whose word you trust as gospel. It’s my error. I need to be better than that. Readers, and the Patriots, deserve better than that.
The New England Patriots came out of no where on Monday and signed former Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne.
Reggie Wayne and New England Patriots have reached agreement on a one-year deal, league source told ESPN.

What do you think about this Colts fans?
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was a guest on the Dennis and Callahan show and revealed that he’s a virgin.
“Wilt Chamberlain wrote that he slept with 20,000 women,” [Gary] Tanguay said. “Now, the reason that you’re a hero here in New England is not only because you catch touchdowns, but every time we turn around, you’re with some hot-looking babe. And quite frankly, guys like me live vicariously through you. So how old are you?”
“I’m 26 now,” Gronk said.
“Okay, 26. So how many women has Rob Gronkowski slept with?” Tanguay asked. “Because that’s what people really want to know. Because all this preseason stuff? No one cares.”
“I never—I’m a virgin,” replied Gronk.
I have a hard time believing this. But I’ll take Gronk’s word for it.
The Big Lead found a New York Times story that came out the day before the New York Patriots won Super Bowl XXXVI against the St. Louis Rams that talks about the Pats being spied on.
Halfway through practice, Patriots’ linebackers coach Pepper Johnson noticed something in a third-floor window of a house next to the field.
Club and league officials said a telescope was clearly visible in the window, according to a pool report, and that 15 minutes later, a person appeared at the window, and then vanished.
Officials scanned the window with binoculars, but the person never returned.
It certainly sounds like someone was spying on the Patriots.
