Tom Brady and 10 Other Legendary Athletes with Tarnished Legacies

Today we’re taking a look at 10 incredibly famous athletes with tarnished legacies. Why? Oh, I think you know why.

On Monday, the NFL handed down a shocking punishment to St. Thomas Edward Patrick Brady suspending him four games for his involvement in the Deflategate scandal. And I don’t know about you, but the first thing I thought about was how this will effect his legacy.

On the one hand, few observers if any would argue that under-inflated footballs made Brady great. On the other hand, Brady’s legacy is bigger than stats and accomplishments. He’s downright mythical. And this suspension has to take some of the lustre off his halo, right?

Of course, it’s still too early to predict the extent to which this suspension will affect Brady’s legacy. So instead of trying, I’m doing a list of other athletes with tarnished legacies to provide some context for evaluating Brady.

Sound good? Okay then, let’s take a look at some fallen heroes, shall we?
