NFL’s integrity out the window
Re “Brady is suspended four games in scheme” (Sports, May 12): Brian Williams told us all about one of his experiences while in Iraq. It turned out to be a big, fat lie. NBC suspended him for six months, and it is unlikely he will get his job back. Tom Brady told us all he did nothing wrong regarding deflating footballs and would never do anything to break the rules. Another big, fat lie. The NFL suspended Brady for four games. In addition, sales of Brady’s merchandise have doubled since the suspension was announced. Looks like NBC values integrity a lot more than the NFL and Brady’s fans.

Why different views on cheating?
I really don’t understand the backlash from the penalty imposed on Tom Brady. Some people are saying that they only let a little air out of the football, what’s the big deal? That’s cheating.
Taking steroids to get bigger is cheating; are they saying that’s OK, too? Barry Bonds and others have cheated and were exposed for their cheating. Why do all these folks think it’s OK to cheat to win a Super Bowl but it’s not OK to cheat to hit home runs?
