Alight with renewed fire in anticipation of the 2016 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots’ Tom Brady will serve his suspension in the case of his deflated footballs- despite the court’s first ruling. That is, if the current judgement against him stands.
(Doesn’t he know deflated balls are sad balls?)
Brady’s deflategate scandal diminished his status as an NFL athlete; though he escaped sentencing initially, two judges of the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York overturned Brady’s initial pardon 2-1. Tom Brady continues to fight the suspension, but many say his efforts are in vain.
Brady’s willing to go as far as the US Supreme Court to overturn the new sentence. The QB’s suspension would last a meager four games.
(Tom, if you did it, can’t you just own up to it?)
Should the Supreme Court take on an inconsequential case as to determine the fate of NFL’s Tom Brady, it will certainly be a surprise to me- although I’m not one of the tens of thousands NFL fans, can we all concede the Supreme Court has more important cases to hear?
Brady’s trial is projected to last at least another year. If you’re one of the “best NFL quarterbacks,” why did you need deflated balls in the first place, Brady? Why? You could be going to Disney World.
Brady and the courts claim the QB’s suspension has nothing to do with his sad footballs, and everything to do with “the law and whether NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had the authority to penalize Brady,” quoted from ESPN’s official website.
The NFL Speaks Out for Tom Brady’s Suspension; Tom Brady Fights Against It
Speaking out against his ruling in feigned concern for the NFL, Tom Brady says,
“As much as I disagree with the court’s decision, how the NFL has handled this, and had nothing to do with any deflation of footballs, I think it’s time to end this unfortunate situation because I don’t want it be a distraction for the team.”
Here’s what the NFL had to say about Brady’s Suspension:
“We are pleased the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled today that the Commissioner properly exercised his authority under the collective bargaining agreement to act in cases involving the integrity of the game.
“That authority has been recognized by many courts and has been expressly incorporated into every collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and (the NFL Players Association) for the past 40 years.”
The NFLPA continues to assert Tom Brady’s rights as an NFL player where unduly represented, and will “continue to fight for player’s rights.”
