I agree with you Harry. The 4 game for Brady isn't enough, million dollar isn't enough and loosing 1st round pick, big deal. They've probably made over a million in the merchandise increase over this. Brady still has a job come game 5, he just gets to watch a game, get paid doing and do it in jeans and t-shirt. The Patriots have enough money to get any player they want, so the draft really isn't that big of a deal.
GM backed WJ and KJ for years, till they started to slip and Warren started throwing around retirment, then not, then he is, then he isnt. But yes, I hope the manufacturers get more involved next year, or start this year on some level.
