You’d think the NFL would take Tom Brady’s acceptance of his suspension and run with it, considering it took nearly two years to get. Instead, they’re being the annoying older brother who just realized they can get away with anything by making Brady’s contact with teammates and coaches virtually illegal during Brady’s four-game suspension.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told the Boston Herald that if Brady wanted and of his Patriot teammates to come over to his house and help him stay sharp, the NFL would prohibit it. Brady can’t “engage in any team football-related activities or discussions with teammates, even if away from the club facility.”

Of course, any slip-ups would mean more punishment for Brady so it’d be wise to not push any more of Goodell’s buttons. It still seems pretty ridiculous he can’t have some of his friends over for a simple game of catch. Then again, who would really know if he did?
