On Tuesday morning, the NFL announced significant penalties for the Miami Dolphins after an investigation into the team for alleged tampering and tanking.
The NFL stripped the Dolphins of their first-round pick in 2023 and their third and fourth-round picks in 2024. According to the statement from the league, the Dolphins tampered with Tom Brady in 2019 when he was still with the New England Patriots and then again this offseason.

"If nothing else, this just proves my theory that Belichick purposely set the Flores lawsuit to prevent Brady from going to Miami," another fan said.
"Belichick's master plan that began with a 'mistake' text to Brian Flores is taking effect," a third fan joked.
