New England’s Tom Brady Suspension Upheld By Federal Appeals Court
Today a federal appeals court announced that they ruled in favor of the NFL's four-game suspension of Tom Brady for his part in Deflategate.
Brady reportedly had an equipment manager deflate footballs so that he could grip them better and then later destroyed evidence so that the NFL could not investigate.
Roger Goodell decided on the four game suspension of Brady before last season began but Brady took the suspension to court and won during the summer. He did not sit out any games last season.
The NFL and Roger Goodell then appealed the lifting of the suspension and a federal appeals court with a three-judge panel ruled in favor 2-1 of the NFL's four game suspension for Brady.
As of now Brady will miss the first four weeks against the Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, Houston Texans and Buffalo Bills.
