Well, that didn’t take long. A federal judge Thursday morning nullified NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for Brady’s alleged involvement in an inconsequence called deflate-gate. But before the ink had dried on Judge Richard Berman’s 40-page opinion, the NFL appealed Brady’s appeal of the original ruling.
Terrific. This appeal will likely take months. And if it goes against him, Brady could appeal the appeal of the appeal. If this keeps up, the final final decision on this silly matter can be read out at Brady’s retirement party. After all, Brady is 38. A fine age for a movie leading man. Long in the tooth for an NFL player.
