On Monday morning, The Second Circuit United States Court of Appeals intercepted Tom Brady’s last hopes of beating the deflategate saga and his 4-game suspension by the NFL.
According to CBS,
From the ruling, filed Monday morning:
We hold that the Commissioner properly exercised his broad discretion under the collective bargaining agreement and that his procedural rulings were properly grounded in that agreement and did not deprive Brady of fundamental fairness. Accordingly, we REVERSE the judgment of the district court and REMAND with instructions to confirm the award.

According to ESPN,
“The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday in a 2-1 decision in New York.”
The drama of Deflategate started in 2015 when the New England Patriots won the AFC Championship over the Indianapolis Colts and then won the Super Bowl. Brady, along with other employees of the Patriots organization were accursed of underinflated footballs during the match-up. Now that the ruling has been reinstated, Brady is now scheduled to miss games against the Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, Houston Texans and Buffalo Bills.
