Tom Brady took the NFL to court and won.
Judge Richard Berman vacated the four-game suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on Thursday to bring an end (temporarily) to Deflategate.
As a result, Brady will be eligible to play in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers next Thursday night.
Judge Berman released a 40-page report on why Brady’s suspension was vacated. His logic included NFL commissioner Roger Goodell unjustly issuing his own brand of justice.
By the way, a big time thumbs up to David Portnoy and the follks of Barstool Sports. A lot of people talk a big game about protesting and showing Roger Goodell who is boss.
Portnoy and company actually went to New York and served jail time; produced hilarious t-shirts; and confronted ESPN reporters. Also, they did it in a peaceful and meaningful manner without publicly suggesting to hire someone to murder Goodell like a certain Boston media member.
I’m not saying that was the smartest thing in the world but it proves a point.
Can we play some football now?
