Appeals Court Rules Tom Brady Must Serve 4-Game ‘Deflategate’ Suspension

A federal appeals court has ruled that New England Patriots Tom Brady must serve a four-game “Deflategate” suspension.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday morning in New York, to uphold the original suspension imposed by the NFL. The three-judge panel ended the legal debate and scandal that led to months of football fans speculating over the air pressure in Brady’s footballs from January 2015.

A September ruling by Manhattan Judge Richard Berman went against the league’s decision, letting Brady skip the suspension.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell insisted the suspension was deserved.
