    "We found no evidence that anyone at the NFL had or saw the in-elevator video before it was publicly shown. We also found no evidence that a woman at the NFL acknowledged receipt of that video in a voicemail message on April 9, 2014," the report said.

    Also the Patriots never spied on the Rams.

    I did my own investigation and I did not write this post.

    So is the Mueller Report fixed? Are investigators purposely turning a blind eye? Or is this just the usual, modern response people have today about things: "I don't agree with it, so it must be wrong, anybody who agrees with me is right, anybody who doesn't is wrong."

    LOL I guess you haven't been paying attention to the NFL for the last 10 years.

    Why should the NFL be given the benefit of the doubt on anything?

    And it's released on Thursday, two days before the Divisional playoffs, which means it will be in the news for two days tops.

    To believe the Mueller Report, one has to believe that the police officer who played the voicemail for the Associated Press fabricated it (with an NFL registered phone number, to boot) in an effort to make the NFL look bad. It's not out of the realm of possibility, but it seems less likely than the NFL spending a whole lot of money to repair its image and protect Goodell.

    I doubt many believe the report, but with the ruling and the timing of everything, it will be completely forgotten about in about 48 hours.

    This should surprise absolutely no one.

    Why not release it tomorrow then? It's a Friday. And only news for one day.
