Bradygate: AG Healy and others see punishment as not fitting the crime
WGBH - 05/13/2015
Executive Director Dan Lebowitz of The Center for the Study of Sport in Society at Northeastern University takes something of an opposite view. He says the NFL is turning Deflategate into what he calls “Deflectgate.”
“It’s trying to make the public… think about the League in terms of the integrity of its game, and take the gaze away from the domestic violence incidents, from the child abuse incidents, and from the concussive issues that continue to plague the game.”
Lebowitz thinks the NFL erred in both the Brady and Rice punishments.
