World War II veteran Warren B. Lessing destroyed NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in a recent letter he wrote over the issue of “Deflategate.”

Lessing takes a strong stand in support of freedom, due process and Tom Brady while hammering Goodell over his handling of allegations that the New England Patriots might have deflated footballs. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: NFL Owners Furious With Goodell — ‘It’s Time For A New Commissioner’)

According to CBS Boston, the letter reads as follows:


I am a 93 year old WW II veteran and I have always found it prudent to invoke my disclaimer, in matters such as this, to voice my personal opinion as guaranteed by the U.S. Supreme Court under Freedom of Speech.

While I did not expect a reply, I wrote to Roger Goodell regarding the above, as I am sure thousands of football fans did the same, stating that I thought it was a stupid, asinine ruling. In the meantime you overrule the judge who rightfully, and sensibly, tried to put an end to it, so I am telling you the same thing.

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t this still the United States where a person is innocent until proven guilty? Tom Brady was never proven guilty. Don’t you have anything more important to do?

Very truly yours,

Warren B. Lessing

An appeals court recently sided with the NFL and Goodell in upholding Brady’s suspension over his alleged role in “Deflategate.” However, this case doesn’t seem like it’s going to end anytime soon.
