The Tom Brady appeal transcript pulled back the curtain on the process and shed light on how Roger Goodell and the NFL handled themselves.

Jeff Howe believes the transcript makes the NFL commissioner look especially bad.

"The big thing is we've all caught Roger Goodell in a major lie here," said Howe. "In the 20-page letter that he sent out to uphold Brady's suspension he said Tom Brady did not discuss or address the topic of conversation that he had with Jastremski in the days after the AFC Championship game. When in a footnote he contradicted himself by saying, 'Brady sort of did talk about the upcoming Super Bowl.

"The guy is blatantly lying to cover his rear end."
