Surely I'm not the only one that has floated the theory, as I did a few posts ago, that Tom was cheating on Gisele.
If not that, then there was something else on that phone that Tom did not want the Niffle, or any organization that might promise not to leak personal information but might leak it anyway, to see.
If there were incriminating texts on that phone about football deflation, then those texts are also on other phones to which the Niffle undoubtedly had access as part of its investigation. While it would be sexy to see those texts all laid out on Tom's own phone, his words will also appear on the recipient's phone, and presumably phones of other potential co-conspirators were also collected -- I haven't heard anything about any other Pats employee refusing to turn over a phone (and if the Niffle never tried to collect them, then shame). So the Niffle could collect exactly the same information from other phones.
So why was Tom so all-fired anxious to destroy his own phone? Because there is something else on that phone that he cannot afford to let anyone else see contained in communications to persons not associated with the investigation. He's dallying with some doxy, or texting with some tart, or exchanging johnson selfies with Brett Favre, or swapping inside information on securities with Martha Stewart.
There is counter-evidence to this theory, which I love so much that I'm not abandoning it in the face of this evidence, which is that (I heard) Brady did turn some other phone over to the Niffle. Which, if he were a chronic philanderer, might be expected to have the same kind of dangerous communications on it.
But if he were only a recent philanderer (recent with respect to the deflation controversy), my theory is still looking good, if only to me.
I hereby grant any Ticket host a royalty-free worldwide license to adopt this theory without attribution.
