David Ortiz makes odd metaphor when describing Deflategate
It's the story that just won't seem to go away, no matter how much people on both sides of the issue wish it would. Monday, the word "Deflategate" came back into our worlds when an appeals court ruled to reinstate the four game suspension for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
Brady was initially suspended by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell before the 2015 season for his reported role in the under-inflation of footballs during the AFC Championship Game two seasons ago against the Indianapolis Colts. Brady appealed and won his case, allowing him to play the entire season.

With the revival of Deflategate debate all over the country (with some who hate the Patriots even wanting to move on from it), other athletes are throwing in their two cents about the situation. One o those is a fellow Boston sports icon like Brady,Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz.
The man called "Big Papi" went on local radio station WEEI and said one of the oddest metaphors when asked about the whole issue:
"When you fight eggs with a rock, the eggs never win."
Ummm...so, we're guessing that the NFL is the rock in this case, right? If so, that makes the Patriots the fragile little egg (the egg that tried to get an advantage over their opponent).
Like many others in the Boston area, David Ortiz doesn't seem to understand the concept that cheating needs to be punished as he would continue to defend Brady:
"You're talking about probably the best player in the game, so what is the message you're sending? I don't think the message they're sending is good. They want to send a strong message to who? The NFL players? How about the fans. What we think of it doesn't matter?"
Brady still has several options, which include everything from taking the suspension to asking for the full appeals court to hear the case to taking it all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
