Brady Is FREE

Has victory ever been sweeter? Judge Berman overturned Brady’s suspension today, and our beloved QB is a free man once again! Of course, Goodell is going to appeal, but they lost once, they’ll lose again. This is such a major embarrassment for the league and just as huge of a victory for Brady and the NFLPA.

Robert Kraft released a statement saying:

“As I have said during this process and throughout his Patriots career, Tom Brady is a classy person of the highest integrity. He represents everything that is great about this game and this league. Yet, with absolutely no evidence of any actions of wrongdoing by Tom in the Wells report, the lawyers at the league still insisted on imposing and defending unwarranted and unprecedented discipline. Judge Richard Berman understood this and we are greatly appreciative of his thoughtful decision that was delivered today. Now, we can return our focus to the game on the field.”

Goodell also released his own statement and plans to appeal:

“We are grateful to Judge Berman for hearing this matter, but respectfully disagree with today’s decision. We will appeal today’s ruling in order to uphold the collectively bargained responsibility to protect the integrity of the game. The commissioner’s responsibility to secure the competitive fairness of our game is a paramount principle, and the league and our 32 clubs will continue to pursue a path to that end. While the legal phase of this process continues, we look forward to focusing on football and the opening of the regular season.”
