(Reuters) - The National Football League and its players union on Friday asked a U.S. judge to decide whether to uphold New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension in the "Deflategate" case by Sept. 4 before the season begins.

U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in New York, who is overseeing litigation over the suspension, on Thursday urged the two sides to discuss a resolution and to cool down their rhetoric.
