Tom Brady’s Appeal Rejected By Federal Court
By Cyrus Geller
A decision has finally been made in regards to Tom Brady’s appeal to a federal court, and it is not good for the Patriots…
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals will not grant a rehearing for Tom Brady’s four game suspension.
Brady’s next course of action would be to take this to the Supreme Court, which seems likely at this point.
Fight this damn thing until the very end.
We know how dumb this situation is. Roger Goodell is a complete joke, and this whole thing has just been him trying to “get back” and Brady and the Patriots. Anyone with a brain knows he should never have been suspended, and Goodell abused his power as commissioner to get what he wanted in the end.
Brady will continue to fight this until he has no options left. The likelihood of the Supreme Court taking this case is low, but as long as there is a chance, I know Brady will fight.
As for the actual football, this will only benefit the Pats in the long-run. With Jimmy Garoppolo under center, I anticipate New England will go 3-1 in the first four games, and at the very worst, 2-2.
Beating Arizona will be tough, but the Dolphins, Texans and Bills shouldn’t present much of a problem with how loaded the Patriots are on defense, and at every offensive skill position.
Garoppolo will get them through those first four games, then the Pats will get a pissed off Brady for the rest of the year, which never ends well for the opposition. Not only that, but he will be four games more rested than everyone else, meaning that he will be EXTRA fresh for those critical January and February games.
Nice try, NFL. You lose no matter what.
