Somehow out of all this, Tom Brady is the underdog who won

The Patriots, for the most part, are a team that nobody likes outside of Massachusetts. Yet somehow when they had to fight against an entity that is more hated — the commissioner — the Patriots are the underdogs.

Sure, the Patriots cheated but in a sense, they still were being hunted down by the guy nobody likes. Tom Brady is one of those people that just seems to have everything right go for him. So when Roger Goodell decided to go after him, Brady somehow turned into the underdog.

With the decision to lift the suspension, Brady is the bad guy that you cheer for. He’s the Heath Ledger’s Joker and Goodell is the boring Batman. In a way, the attempt at justice seemed too boring and the people wanted a renegade.

Still, Goodell will always be public enemy No. 1 in the league no matter what. Even when he attempts to do the right thing and correct the wrongs of the league, his recent failures will cloud his image. He didn’t have to try to take out Brady. Now that he did try to fix what was wrong and failed, his image as the bad guy grew. Brady, the guy nobody really liked, somehow is the one we’re cheering for.
