The NFL has won in federal appeals court, meaning that Tom Brady will finally have to serve his four-game suspension in September 2016 for deflating footballs in January 2015. Finally some good news for the Miami Dolphins!
If he'd served this suspension when he was originally supposed to, Brady would have missed 2015 games against the Steelers, Bills, Jaguars, and Cowboys. The Patriots won all of those games after Brady won his initial appeal on the grounds that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was a poopy-head.
This year, assuming the federal appeals court doesn't overturn itself, Brady will end up missing games against the Cardinals, Dolphins, Texans, and Bills. Given that Brady's backup has never started a game in the NFL (and comes from the same school as Tony Romo!), I have to like our chances in Week 2.
Keep up the good work, Mr. Goodell! The Dolphins needs all the help they can get.
