Appeals Court: Cheating Tom Brady Must Stop Cheating the NFL and Serve His Four-Game Suspension for All His Cheating

Deflategate, reinflated.

A lower court had previously blocked his punishment, claiming the NFL's adjudication and punishment system deprived Brady of "fundamental fairness."


NEW YORK (AP) — New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady must serve a four-game "Deflategate" suspension imposed by the NFL, a federal appeals court ruled Monday, overturning a lower judge and siding with the league in a battle with the players union.

A three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ruled 2-to-1 that Commissioner Roger Goodell did not deprive Brady of "fundamental fairness" with his procedural rulings....

It is also likely to fuel a fresh round of debate over what role, if any, the quarterback and top NFL star played in using underinflated footballs at the AFC championship game in January 2015.

He'll have to sit out four games this upcoming season, where he can, from the bench, think up bold new ways of cheating and nearly getting away with it.
