So it turns out that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be suspended for “Deflategate.”

Probably.

A federal appeals court on Monday ruled that 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.

While there were people thrilled that Brady will miss the first four games this season, there was a lot of disgust aimed at commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL.
