NFL suspended Dolphins owner Stephen Ross until October 17 and stripped the team of their 2023 first-round pick and 2024 third-round pick for tampering violations.​

Ross is also barred from any league meetings until the Annual Meeting in 2023, has been removed from all league committees, and was fined $1.5 million. The report found the Dolphins "had impermissible communications" with Tom Brady in 2019, 2020, and 2021 as well as former Saints coach Sean Payton in January of 2022. Neither person ended up working for the organization. Miami was also investigated for tanking after former coach Brian Flores claimed Ross offered him $100,000 per game to intentionally lose in 2019. The league found that comment "was not intended or taken to be a serious offer."
The old, "I was just joking" defense! Tell it to the judge!

More coming when the Flores lawsuit is heard.

He aint going to settle either. If he has sufficient proof, Flores will be gone permanently.
Judges don't buy, "just kidding defense"

They didn't fail.

Brady 'retired'. He started his part in the tampering, but they got caught, the whole plan leaked. Brady backed out and rejoined the Bucs.


But only the Dolphins are in trouble, for some reason.
Just don't ask for Tommy's phone lol

So...Brady cheats again but the Dolphins get punished. :heh:
"Why wasn't Tom Brady punished? Yes, I understand that he did absolutely nothing against the rules, but that hasn't stopped the NFL before or so many of his detractors wanting him to be punished. The not breaking the rules thing just doesn't seem to be a good enough answer."

Is there implied guilt in speaking to other teams while under contract with two different teams? The focus is on the team's wrongdoing, but he knows better not to participate as he did as well. The players don't get punished however.
