Tom Brady's 4-Game Suspension Reinstated for DeflateGate: A federal appeals court has ruled that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady must serve a four-game DeflateGate suspension imposed by the NFL, overturning a lower judge and siding with the league in a battle with the players union. "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," the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday in New York.

Not clear on how it gets upgraded in severity but he gets no suspension except: "It's good for TV, now excuse us while we figure out how to keep these pesky Raptors from making it into the Finals".

I have no idea what you are talking about. "Hit and ran again"?

I assume it's a reference to hitting massive home runs and trotting around the bases. Must be it.

Good news: the New England Revolution finally paid for a big name. Bad news: it's someone who was available because he's a clubhouse cancer.

At the end of the day, Hotspur's overconfidence and tendency to violence always ends in disaster. Also, have you ever seen the end of Henry IV Part II?!

Strangely, there's some great discussion of the labor law implications in this thread at deadspin where someone who posts as a stereotypical Boston fan drops his character (thus everything being in parentheses) to discuss the law.

Brady & Kraft should agree to drop any appeal if the League releases the inflation data from last year.

Yup, I lose again. They'd fallen off a cliff the last few games so I gave up.
