Our Fort Lauderdale green screen video production studio (servicing Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach County) is covering the “Deflategate” scandal involving New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady. The NFL has decided to fine Brady $1million dollars, suspend him for the first four games of next year’s NFL season and take away two draft picks from the team. Our state of the art HD remote, uplink studio in Fort Lauderdale, welcomed back, Former NFL Supervisior of Officials, Jim Daopoulos who was live on CNN New Day. Jim, along with former Patriot’s receiver Dante Stallworth discussed the NFL’s punishment of Brady with CNN’s Chris Cuomo.
The NFL’s investigation found that Brady had knowledge that team footballs were intentionally deflated below the standard weight range between 12.5 and 13.5 pounds per square inch (PSI). It was discovered that 11 of the 12 balls set aside for the Patriots offense were found to be under inflated during their AFC Playoff Championship victory over the Baltimore Colts 45-7. Brady’s agent, Do Yee and Patriot’s owner, Robert Kraft are both sticking by Brady, defending the quarterback. Although Kraft said he would abide by whatever decision the NFL came to, he released a statement Monday night criticizing the investigation. “Despite our conviction that there was no tampering with footballs, it was our intention to accept any discipline levied by the league,” Kraft said. “Today’s punishment, however, far exceeded any reasonable expectation. It was based completely on circumstantial rather than hard or conclusive evidence. The statement said Brady had the team’s “unconditional support” and that its “belief in him has not wavered.” The team statement also thanked New England Patriot fans for their support during and after the investigation.
