Here’s a sampling of what some current and former NFL players said on Twitter after learning of New England Patriots QB Tom Brady being suspended for the first four games of the 2015 season (and course the team being fined $1 million and docked 2 draft picks):
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!!! SMH #PATSNATION STAND UP!!!!!

Tom Brady suspended 4 games…. That’s just ridiculous. They are comparing it to steroid use. Preposterous! What are your thoughts?
