Shocked this didn’t come sooner. Can’t imagine damages would have been that much if Plaintiffs won, but the reputation impact is huge. Could have avoided a lot of bad press if this went away sooner.

I might suspend 4 games for conduct detrimental to the league. My job is to protect the integrity of the shield

Nah, that's necessary only when someone is caught cheating during games...

It would get a crapload more attention, Brady is the face of the NFL, everybody would have been covering it.

Maybe it’s because I live in NJ but this seemed to get as much attention as the Brady stolen jersey after the SB. I personally think the lack of attention isn’t because of the player but because most people probably don’t realize how much those helmets (or sports memorabilia in general) are and think it’s not as big of a deal as it is.

I willing to bet that 90% of people who don’t collect sports memrobilla would undervalue that Tom Brady jersey a good amount because they don’t view memorabilia like collectors do so media coverage would be a lot less than you’d think

The point is neither got much attention... Sports memoribilla really doesn’t interest anyone not on this forum. It doesn’t matter who is involved. Tom Brady had his SB jersey stolen and nobody really cared.

If you meant more people would care about it on this forum, I’d agree the thread would be longer but it would just be people trolling

Can agree with your point. Have had friends not into sports come over and see a game worn jersey and when they ask how much it costs are shocked to hear people would pay more than $50 for a worn piece of clothing.

Everybody hates Brady and the Pats. So when something is stolen from him, nobody cares. However, if he was the one committing fraud, this would be a huge story.

For sports memorabilia... Tom Brady's stolen jersey hit about every mainstream media outlet there was. Tons of people who do not care or think about memorabilia know that Tom Brady's jersey was stolen. It would be much bigger news if Tom Brady was caught selling fake memorabilia. But that's not really saying much, he's more popular and gets more attention.
