Tom Brady's four-game suspension was upheld by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The NFL rejected the appeal of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady with regards to his role in the DeflateGate controversy, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Tom Brady's four-game suspension for his involvement in the New England Patriots' DeflateGate scandal has been upheld by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, according to an official release.

Deflate Gate: Suspension Upheld, What's Next for Tom Brady?

The NFL has dug in their heels and elected to uphold the suspension on the grounds of Brady "destroying" his cell phone. For my knowledge, I don't know what the circumstances surrounding Brady "destroying" his phone is so I won't speculate as to why or use it to incriminate him. Call it ignorance or call me a homer, I really don't care. If I was in Brady's position, I wouldn't give any of the NFL stooges my cell phone and would make them go to Federal Court to get those records because there is nothing in the Collective Bargaining Agreement that forces me to do so.
