The Ginger Hammer won't overturn the suspension, it would make him look terrible. "Sorry owners, I just spent over 5 million dollars of your money on a report that produced no proof and was full of inconsistencies.....please keep paying me 44 million per year."

This will go to court and I have heard tons of varying opinions of how that will turn out. One said that judges are extremely reluctant to overrule an independent arbitrator, but Goodell is the farthest thing from independent. One concern I have is that while the court would likely place the suspension on hold pending the outcome...if the court makes a decision mid-season, that could mean missing Brady for 4 games when games matter a lot more. Of course it could also get tied up in court until next offseason as well.


One thing I am confidant in...whenever Brady is playing this year, he is going to be lights out.

Update on Brady's appeal:

ABC's Ryan Smith reports the NFLPA will challenge the NFL in federal court if Tom Brady receives any kind of suspension.

Brady is currently on the hook for four games though it should be reduced on appeal. Going to federal court to have a suspension overturned isn't unprecedented. Adrian Peterson did the same thing after his child abuse scandal and was reinstated. Commissioner Roger Goodell said last week a decision on Brady would be "coming very soon."

Hopefully the suspension is dropped, but glad to see Brady and the NFLPA will fight it.


The Boston Globe expects Tom Brady to take an "all-or-nothing" approach to the appeal of his four-game suspension, taking the NFL to court if Roger Goodell does not eliminate the ban entirely.

In other words, Brady won't be satisfied with a one- or two-game reduction of his four-game ban. He wants the entire thing expunged, and is willing to go to court to ensure it happens. Turning 38 in two weeks, Brady is believed to be very concerned with his legacy, and views the suspension for ball deflation as a black mark on his resume. Brady met with Goodell 23 days ago to appeal his ban. Goodell has recently needed 5-6 weeks to hand down appeal rulings. The courts do have a history of overturning NFL discipline like Adrian Peterson this past February and Jonathan Vilma following the Bountygate scandal.

This could get very ugly for the NFL if it goes to court.

More on Brady...no way this ends in July.


A source tells PFT that settlement discussions have occurred in the Tom Brady case.

Anytime a player appeals a suspension, a settlement is always possible. It's not expected in this case though, with so many eyes pressuring Roger Goodell to take a hard line. Even if Goodell believes a federal court will completely wipe out Brady's four-game, his PR team will tell him it's better to let someone else reduce the ban than to look weak and do it himself. The DeflateGate saga will be far from over, even once Goodell finally rules on the appeal.


A source tells ESPN's Dan Graziano that Tom Brady made the NFL a settlement offer regarding his Deflategate suspension last week.

The offer was met with "silence," according to Graziano's source. That's because Brady is believed to be holding firm with his willingness to accept a fine but will not accept being suspended for any games. Commissioner Roger Goodell can't afford to look weak and reduce Brady's four-game ban -- he'll be far better off letting a federal court do that. Again, this mess will not end when Goodell finally rules on the appeal as Brady will almost certainly sue. Him being on the field Week 1 while the case is tied up in court remains in the range of outcomes.
