This past week has been fairly tumultuous for Tom Brady. It all started when he was told to leave an abandoned park in Tampa Bay after starting to workout by himself. Then, he barged into someone's home by accident as he thought the place belonged to offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich. These mistakes are pretty hilarious when you think about it but apparently, NFL teams don't agree. In fact, some are calling for Brady and the Buccaneers to face stiff punishments.
According to Jason La Canfora, NFL teams believe the Buccaneers and Brady have been breaking rules pertaining to the Coronavirus-imposed stay at home order. Some teams think that Brady has been meeting with his staff a little too much during this time and that he is setting a bad example when it comes to social distancing. In fact, some squads have already told league officials about their displeasure.
Considering Brady's past with the New England Patriots, it will be interesting to see what the league does here. On one hand, the Buccaneers and Brady aren't breaking any football rules. However, there is something to be said about committing irresponsible actions while in the midst of a pandemic.

NBA Reveals If Rudy Gobert Will Be Punished For Recklessness
Rudy Gobert was the first NBA player diagnosed with the Coronavirus.
Rudy Gobert was the talk of the NBA yesterday as it was revealed that he was diagnosed with the Coronavirus. To add insult to injury, he ended up getting his teammate, Donovan Mitchell, infected. As a result, the NBA decided to shut the league down for an indefinite period of time. Sports leagues across North America have completely shut down and now, sports all across Europe have also been halted. It's a dire situation and people are scared.
As it pertains to Gobert, many are upset as he exhibited recklessness. He didn't think the virus was serious and acted in a disrespectful manner at various points. Because of this, many have called for the player to be punished. According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports, Gobert will not be facing any punishments.
Some fans are confused by the decision but at the end of the day, it makes a lot of sense. Punishing Gobert would just make things worse for a player who already feels horrible about what's gone down. Yesterday, Gobert issued an apology on Instagram that was directed at the reporters and his teammate, Mitchell.

French Soccer Player Bites Rival’s Penis, Lengthy Suspension Ensues
You can't be doing that.
No man should ever bite another man's private parts. While this is a rule that probably shouldn't be spoken about, there are times where it bears repeating because of the few people who do it, out of sheer ignorance. Back in November, an amateur French soccer game occurred between Terville and Soetrich. At one point, two players began to get into an altercation. That's when a Terville player stepped in to break things up. According to Sports Illustrated, the Soetrich player retaliated by biting the interfering player on the penis.
The Terville player was rushed to hospital where he got 12 stitches to close up the wound. After months of deliberation, the soccer governing body for the league ruled that the player who committed the foul act would be suspended for five years.
What's interesting about this whole ordeal is the fact that the victim has been suspended until June 30th of this year. According to the report, his conduct in the parking lot after the game was deemed inappropriate, hence the suspension. To be fair, if you get your private parts bit, you're not going to be very happy about it.
Needless to say, this league has a lot to worry about moving forward.
