Just the money Kraft is making off of his fine is enough to set me up for life, and my kids.
    To be fair I think teams would sacrifice the money every time for a 1st round draft pick.

    Because he's a trillionaire and a member of the Cabal.

    Let's be real here though. He's not getting off easy. The fine is large....forget that he's "saving money" by not paying Brady for 4 games. This hurts his brand, and losing draft picks, especially a high one hurts. You can't tell me he and the Pat's are better off saving a few bucks because they are not paying a draft pick....draft picks, especially high ones, are very important.
    In his recent recantation - if that's a word - Kraft did a 180, took his lumps, and didn't mention his QB.

    Because he measures nine times to cut once.
