DeflateGate: Tom Brady, NFLPA Appealing Verdict in Federal Court

The New England Patriots quarterback has taken the obvious next step and they're taking the NFL to court.

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The logical next step of the DeflateGate saga involves New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady taking the NFL to court.

The NFL tried to jump the shark by filing their own case in New York, but look for Brady's camp to try and take the battle to Minnesota or Massachusetts- more labor friendly locales.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell upheld Brady's four-game suspension on the grounds that Brady destroyed his phone and must be hiding the fact that he asked for the footballs to be deflated. Goodell also supported the findings of Exponent, and disregarded the rebuttals of their faulty analysis because, and I'm not joking, a person who helped Ted Wells said that Exponent did good work.

Seriously. Goodell upheld the ruling because the people who did the investigation said that the investigation was good.

See you in court.
