Colts owner Jim Irsay and Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti are the most vocal owners pushing the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to uphold Tom Brady’s four-game suspension for his “probable” role in deflategate, according to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio.

Sal Paolantonio spoke to San Diego’s “Mighty 1090″radio on Friday and talked about the two owners Goodell would anger the most by reducing Tom Brady’s suspension.

“[By reducing the suspension] you’re angering some of the hard-core owners out there,” said Paolantonio. “I know who they are and I‘m gonna name ‘em right now: Jim Irsay of the Colts. Steve Bisciotti of the Ravens and others in the AFC who believe the Patriots have gotten away with murder for years and have not been publicly punished properly.”

It’s not surprising at all that the two teams who lost to the Patriots in the playoffs this year and have for many years publicly hated the Patriots would want Brady’s suspension to be upheld. Also, some rumors have circulated months ago that the Ravens and Colts worked together with the NFL in a sting operation to get the Pats in trouble. This makes that rumor look even more possible in my eyes. Aside from the obvious hate the Ravens and Colts have for the Patriots and Tom Brady, they both would love a four game advantage over the Patriots for the one or two seed because neither team wants to play in Foxboro in January. They are obviously banking on Jimmy Garoppolo losing more games than he could win.

Roger Goodell should see the agenda here by the Colts and Ravens, unless of course, he is and has been working with them against the Patriots in deflategate. The most likely route Goodell will take is either keeping the four game suspension or reducing it to two and letting Brady take it to court.

The Colts, who are at the forefront of getting the Patriots in trouble, really need to stop making that beat down, that’s coming on October 18, 2015 that much worse.

    Now the light is finally visible at the end of the tunnel, albeit the distorted beams which are emminating from Irsay and Biscotti.

    As if we didn’t know this pair were behind this all along. To both of you gentlemen:

    You say that the Patriots have been cheating for quite some time? Do you have any evidence of this, any whatsoever? And did you ever think that if the Patriots (be it Brady or the ball boys or whomever) have been cheating for so many years, how is it that all those other teams, officials, opposing players, Patriots team mates (there are enough former players who left Foxboro under less than amicable circumstances and would have an axe to grind with their former team), and opposing ball boys missed it all along? I mean how is it possible for hundreds, maybe thousands of people to be fooled for all these years? Does it even make sense?

    Try thinking before you talk gentlemen, because your latest statements, if they’re true and accurate, have turned you into fools. What I really hope happens is that Brady and his legal team take this matter to court and gouge the NFL for hundreds of millions of dollars. Maybe when the league loses that amount of money the fellow owner peers will call you pair out for what you are.
