The NFL season is here, starting tonight with the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers clashing in a SuperBowl 50 rematch.

However, for the first since 1997, the opening weekend of NFL fixtures will feature neither Tom Brady nor Peyton Manning. The Sherrif retired after winning his second Super Bowl earlier this year while Brady has been handed a four-game ban for his role in Deflategate.

Speaking today, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer has taken a mini-shot at Brady, seemingly suggesting that the Patriots veteran deserves his ban.

When asked about Brady's controversial ban in a Wednesday conference call with reporters, Palmer said he didn't feel bad about the way the NFL treated Brady.

"I tried not to follow it just because it was everywhere for so long but I go back follow what the rule book says and go about your business and your work, and if they tell you not to do it and you get busted and what happens happens, then you suffer the consequences," Palmer said via Tom Curran of CSNNE.

Palmer went on to state that he was sick of the whole thing but that the game balls shouldn't have been taken where they were.

"To be honest...supposedly the balls went somewhere and they weren’t supposed to go there," Palmer added.

"There was humidity and not enough humidity and whatever it was and altitude. I don’t really know. I didn’t follow the story. As soon as it came on, I just turned it off because I was so sick of hearing about it."

It's nice to see some honesty in professional sports. Patriots fans might not see Palmer's comments that way, though.
