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.
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?
