New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has appealed for a second hearing by the 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals over the 4-game suspension that the NFL is still trying to apply to him over the “deflategate scandal”. NFL Players Association attorney Theodore B. Olson told ABC News “The facts here are so drastic and apparent that the court should rehear it”. Brady’s ban, initially overturned by district court judge Berman and then reinstated by a 2-1 vote in the 2nd Circuit. This fight has gong past deflated balls, Ideal Gas law and text messages to equipment managers. It has become about the overreaching powers the NFLPA gave Roger Goodell in the last Collective Bargaining Agreement. Those powers have already angered Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson, who found themselves punished twice for the same crime before the Deflategate saga even kicked off. If Brady’s appeal to the 2nd District is turned down he does still have the option to take his case to the Supreme Court.
