I'd be the kind of parent to instill to my kids that cheating is wrong no matter how many close postseason games it hands you. ;)

A federal appeals court has ruled in favor of the NFL in the “deflategate” case, reinstating New England Patriot Tom Brady’s original suspension imposed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

I can't believe the appeals court stepped on in this case
especially almost a year later. I am wondering if it will climb
the ladder anymore? There might be one higher court of appeals (9th)?
and then I believe the supreme court would be the final step.

I believe the supreme court is still short a judge and far
behind in its cases. I doubt this goes any further in the federal
court system.

I hope Brady appeals it to the Supreme Court.

So it goes.

@adamschefter
Tom Brady not ready to accept court ruling today - far from it, per sources. Mulling options with legal team. But this is not yet over.

Brady only has two options left to fight this ...

He can ask for an overall decision of every appeals court which almost never happens in the american legal system.

After that and even more rare can appeal to the United States Supreme Court. I think they are backed up several years
currently and would probably not hear the case.

The NFL Players Association has received a 14-day extension until May 23 to decide whether to file written arguments in an appeal to overturn Tom Brady's four-game Deflategate suspension imposed by the NFL.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted the extension Tuesday after it refused the NFL's request to deny the motion from the NFLPA.

Under the new schedule, the players union will have until May 23 instead of May 9 to formally ask for an en banc rehearing. After that, if the 2nd Court takes the unusual step to rehear the case, then Brady and the NFLPA can begin the time-consuming process of endeavoring to have the federal appeals court ruling that sides with the league overturned.
