U.S. Appeals Court: Tom Brady Must Serve Four-Game "Deflategate" Suspension

The U.S. Appeals court has ruled that New England Patriots QB Tom Brady must serve a four-game suspension over his role in the "Deflategate" scandal. The suspension was nullified by a judge last September.

A federal appeals court has ruled that New England Patriots 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.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday in New York. The decision by a three-judge panel may end the legal debate over the scandal that led to months of football fans arguing over air pressure and the reputation of one of the league's top teams.

Needless to say, Patriots fans were not thrilled:

Free Brady.
