No Means No: Court Punctures Tom Brady's Deflategate Appeal

The Deflategate scandal has haunted the NFL for 18 months. But at long last, it now may finally be inching towards a conclusion. According to The Guardian, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s attempt to get a new hearing to appeal against his four-game suspension has been rejected by the second US circuit court of appeals. In April, the second US circuit court of appeals upheld NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s decision to suspend Brady for four games. The league had ruled that footballs had been tampered with during the Patriots’ 45-7 victory over the Colts in the January 2015 AFC Championship game. The league also found Brady was likely to have played a part in the incident. The case has developed partly into an argument over the limits of Goodell’s powers, and has cost both sides millions of dollars in legal fees. Brady, however, can still take his case to the US supreme court.
