I don't disagree with you. If the commissioner would have made his findings and issued a reasonable penalty, he would have won hands down (by the way, the commissioner will probably still win on appeal). But he did not. Think about it this way, could the commissioner have suspended Brady for life for this incident? I think we can all agree that that would have been too much. What about if the commissioner would have fined Brady one dollar? I think we can all agree that that would not been enough. Somewhere between those two there was a proper penalty.

I don't commend the cheating, if it took place. I just don't know that it did and the commissioner does not know that it did. He thinks it happened, but he cannot prove it. Under those circumstances, he would have been better off issuing a penalty that Brady could accept and the commissioner would have won. He did not. He issued a penalty that was unreasonable for the circumstances.

The commissioner has put himself in a spot in which "we tried" is not good enough. Right now he looks like an incompetent ass. He will appeal.

That's a good point. Would love to see Braxton head out there as the QB even if for only one play!

The movie being consistent with Kyle's book and his story does not necessarily ensure accuracy or that the movie deals in any meaningful way with the situation pre-war or during. As I type that, I sense that I am getting a bit too close to what is allowed on this site, so I will stop there. My goal was not to offend, but to express my disappointment with the movie. It could have been so much more. I did not serve. My younger brother did two tours in Iraq and just returned from his third in Afghanistan. The stories he tells are significantly more nuanced than the movie.

Saw the movie and enjoyed it. Great cinematography, good acting, good directing, etc. It was disappointing, however. It is wildly inaccurate and it oversimplifies the people and much of what happened / is happening. I felt that the writer either thought I was a simpleton who could not deal with complexity or that he was trying to misinform me. That said, the University should know better than to pull it.

"Meyer said Virginia Tech’s defensive scheme flustered Ohio State and that it was the first time he’d seen such a look in perhaps his entire coaching career." That's a long and distinguished career. He's pretty much admitting that he was out-coached. Gotta give him credit for that. Let's fix it and not let it happen again.

I hate to agree with this. VT had better coaches tonight.

Scarlet Fever? That's an actual thing. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scarlet_fever). And sounds kind of nasty.
