    NFL wins Deflategate appeal, Tom Brady suspension back on

    Posted by Michael David Smith on April 25, 2016, 11:49 AM EDT

    The NFL has won the latest round in its Deflategate legal battle, and Tom Brady is once again suspended for the first four games of the season.

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has ruled that the NFL does indeed have the authority to suspend Brady, overturning a lower court ruling and reinstating the four-game suspension that Brady was originally handed last year.

    The league’s findings in the Deflategate investigation were that Brady was more probable than not to have ordered the Patriots’ equipment staff to deflate footballs below the minimum level of 12.5 psi. Brady has insisted that he did no such thing.

    There have been so many twists and turns in the Deflategate saga that no one should assume it’s over, but at the moment the NFL has won and Brady has lost, and the Patriots appear set to start the season without their star quarterback.

    Does this mean another SuperBowl gets an *?

    However, we play him week 7 this year. He should have missed game 1 against us last year.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    Anybody really think he gets 4 games? I could see this reduced to one game.

    At this point, he has two options: he can ask for a rehearing of the whole second circuit, or appeal to the US Supreme Court. The US Supreme Court hears very few cases and is very pro-arbitration. The second circuit very infrequently grants an en banc rehearing - averaging about 1 per year. If a rehearing is not granted and the Supreme Court does not agree to take the case, Brady is out of options and serves it all.

    On the other hand, if an en banc rehearing is granted, or if SCOTUS agrees to hear this, then perhaps the parties settle.

    I don't see any way the Supreme Court of the Nation wastes its valuable time with this nonsense.

    I would be surprised if Goodell and the NFL would give him any breaks at this point. I wouldn't. Not after the embarrassment that Brady put Goodell through last year, when they could've settled on maybe 2 games last year, and Brady just took his lumps. At this point. F him.
