As Legal Blitz Co-Founder Steve Silver wrote yesterday on Above the Law Redline and Deadspin, since Roger Goodell broke the Internet on Tuesday by upholding Tom Brady’s four-game suspension for deflating footballs, every NFL fan and critic has suddenly turned into a lawyer. Yet, lost amidst the speculation and prognostication about appeals, lawsuits, injunctions, and venues is the bombshell contained in Roger Goodell’s decision that Brady destroyed the cellphone he used before, during and after the critical AFC title game against the Colts last year.
Silver joined ESPN 940 in Fresno Tuesday to discuss what the destruction of Brady’s cellphone means and Brady’s likelihood of success as this debacle moves to the federal judicial system. You can listen to Silver’s full interview here.
You can also weigh in after the jump about whether you think the league or Brady will ultimately prevail.
