Stephen Ross, the owner of the Miami Dolphins, has been suspended and fined by the league for his dealings with Tom Brady and Sean Payton.

According to the league's investigation, the Dolphins did not intentionally lose games, but they had improper communication with Brady and his agent. The findings of the investigation were made public on Tuesday.

The Dolphins will lose a first- and third-round pick in the next two drafts. Ross is out of commission for a period of time. He might not be present at the team's facility or represent the club at an event. He is removed from all league committees indefinitely if he doesn't attend any league meetings before the annual meeting.

The Dolphins vice chairman may not attend any league meetings for the rest of the year.

That's right.
