NFL feels wrath of Grapes for handling of Tom Brady Deflategate scandal

Wednesday August 5th, 2015

Don Cherry has never been shy about sharing his hot sports opinions ... even when the sport in question isn’t hockey.

The National Football League learned that the hard way on Wednesday. Cherry, the colorful star of Hockey Night In Canada’s Coach’s Corner, took to Twitter to denounce the “bush league” for its handling of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. The four-time Super Bowl champ was suspended for four games in the wake of the deflategate scandal involving the apparently intentional deflation of game balls.

Grapes wasn’t buying it.

“Come on folks, the greatest quarterback who ever lived … tells somebody to deflate the footballs so he can win?” tweeted Cherry. “Give your head a shake.”
