805. SuperBowl QB Mum Re Texts


805. NFL lawyers wanted quarterback Tim Brody's cellphone. They were confident it contained text messages proving that he had conspired with team staffers to deflate game balls, giving him an advantage over opposing teams. Brody supposedly had more than 10,000 messages on his phone. "All we need to find is one shady message," said a lawyer. Brody was having none of that. After putting his phone into a powerful grinder, he took the ground‐up particles to Harvard Bridge and threw them into various parts of the Charles River. He called one of the lawyers and told him what he'd done. The lawyer said, "You can't do that! It's illegal." Brody said, "It's my phone. I can do anything I want with it.
