Tom Brady’s Deflategate suspension appeal to be heard on June 23
Tom Brady’s appeal against four game suspension will be heard beginning June 23. He was suspended for four matches following the much talked about Deflategate that hit the last season like never before.
Reports suggest that the appeal may even continue June 25.
Now it has been confirmed that the Commissioner Roger Goodell hasn’t responded to the NFL Players Association’s request to recuse himself from hearing. But he has made it quite clear by now that he is more interested in hearing directly from Brady.
In the meantime the player was part of the Patriots’ voluntary organized team activity practice Friday. But he kept the media at armâ€™s length and didnâ€™t respond to their questions. It has been decided by Patriotsâ€™ management that second-year pro Jimmy Garoppolo will fill in if any portion of Brady’s suspension stands.
When asked about Garoppoloâ€™s chances of replacing Tom Brady, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said â€œWe’re just going day by day right now. Everybody’s working hard trying to get better. That’s what we’re all doing.â€
Earlier the report that submitted its report regarding the Deflategate had found that there were evidence that Brady was at least generally aware of inappropriate activities by two team employees that led to some game balls being deflated below allowable levels in the AFC championship game. The league-inquiry report ran into 243-page. The inquiry committee was headed by Ted Wells. The Patriots were fined $1 million.
