For once Boston is cheering New York. Judge Richard Berman, a federal court judge in Manhattan, has overturned New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s 4-game suspension for the Deflate-gate scandal.
The suspension was handed down in May and upheld by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell back in July. Brady promptly filed suit. I didn’t think the courts would get involved, but Judge Berman decided not to punt.
All of this means that is that the Jimmy Garoppolo era has been put on hold. Brady could start the season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers one week from tonight. The ratings will be through the roof for NBC.
