LISTEN TO “The Real Tom Shady” HERE:
(New York, NY) — The NFL is denying the “Deflategate” suspension appeal of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. He was suspended four games for his role in deflating footballs below league standards that were used in January’s AFC Championship Game against the Colts. Brady will miss regular-season games against the Steelers, Bills, Jaguars and Cowboys. The team elected not to appeal a one-million-dollar fine and loss of two draft picks.
Commissioner Roger Goodell was on hand to hear Brady’s appeal, with vice president of football operations Troy Vincent also taking part. The suspension came following a lengthy investigation by independent investigator Ted Wells, who determined it was more probable than not that Brady was at least generally aware of the activity surrounding the deflated footballs. The Patriots beat the Colts 45-7 on their way to a Super Bowl 49 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.
