The NFL and NFL Players Association were back in court on Thursday for an appeal hearing over Deflategate.
That was the scandal that rocked the NFL when, after the 2015 AFC championship game between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts, it was revealed that several of the Patriots’ footballs were underinflated. Brady was accused of playing a role in ordering the balls to be underinflated by team employees, then later not cooperating with the NFL’s investigation.
The NFL suspended Brady for four games, but Brady appealed and had that decision turned by Judge Richard Berman. The NFL immediately filed an appeal, which was shelved until after the season.
