NFLPA Threatens Legal Action if Tom Brady Suspension Upheld


As Tom Brady and the Patriots eagerly await Roger Goodell’s decision on his Deflategate appeal, the NFLPA would plan to take the case to federal court if the suspension remains. While no decision date has been given, it seems likely that one would be given within the next few weeks.

Tom Brady ultimately will have the final say if he wants to fight this suspension legally. Any case taken to court would take a lot of time, and any verdict would probably not affect Brady this year. However, Brady would have a right to challenge Goodell’s decision, and it would be a monumental case in the sports world.
