[Ed. – Time to take his punishment like a man]
More than six months after the Deflategate saga began, the fight over New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s four-game suspension is headed for federal court.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld Brady’s ban Tuesday in a strongly worded, 20-page decision that said the evidence supports his findings that Brady “participated in a scheme to tamper” with game balls used in January’s AFC Championship Game and “willfully obstructed” an NFL-backed investigation — in part by having his cell phone destroyed.
The league also filed a complaint in U.S. District Court in New York, seeking confirmation of Goodell’s decision and judgment against the NFL Players Association, which got the go-ahead from Brady to file its own lawsuit and issued a statement calling the decision “outrageous.”
