News Blitz 5/12: Coverage of Patriots penalty

There's really only one significant Patriots story today, and we all know what it is. Everyone's talking about it in almost every medium that covers this game, and many that normally don't.

Locally, there are all sorts of opinion columns everywhere you look today, including The Boston Globe, Boston Herald, The Providence Journal,,, and, most notably. These outlets also examine how things might look different for the Patriots without Tom Brady, where the team goes from here as far as mounting a defense of its punishment, and how fans are reacting.

Other news orgs like Yahoo Finance look at why the NFL came down so hard on the Super Bowl champs, while the *Washington Post *offers some background on the whole saga. There's even international coverage of the story from The Guardian in the U.K.
