Deflated Balls in the United States Supreme Court is Bad Justice

Deflated Balls in the United States Supreme Court is Bad Justice

The case of the NFL vs. Deflated balls and New England quarterback Tom Brady could reach the United States Supreme court.

That is no joke but this joke of a case, as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell swings his masculinity around the court system, is tiring and unnecessary. We are talking deflated balls and air for goodness sake.

The NFL insists on making an issue of it and won a 2-1 vote in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in lower Manhattan that reinstates Brady’s four-game suspension for having some ball boys deflate footballs under the minimum pressure point for the first half of the Patriots’ 45-7 victory against the Indianapolis Colts during the 2015 AFC championship game.

Mind you that Brady did most of his damage after the illegal balls were discovered in a game the Colts decided not to show up in.

Deflategate has been thrown around sports talk radio for more than a year. The matter should have been settled in a matter of days. At the very least it should have died a slow death when the U.S. District Court ruled in Brady’s favor the week before the 2015 season.

Now it is Brady’s turn to drag this out. He is expected to appeal to the full 13 judges in Second Court.

On and on we go.

Once again folks we are talking slightly deflated footballs and air. However, two of the three judges smashed Brady’s case throughout. Judges Barrington Parker Jr. and Denny Chin attacked Brady’s decision to destroy his cell phone. It was a bad idea and is evidence that Brady was covering something up.

“With all due respect to Mr. Brady, his explanation made no sense whatsoever,” Parker said.

And Chin said this: “Evidence of ball tampering is compelling if not overwhelming. How do we second-guess the four-game suspension?”

Yes, there is evidence of ball tampering and cover-up. Brady probably had a wink-wink deal with clubhouse attendants to keep balls the way he likes them. There is evidence that he gave them special gifts.

But the United States Supreme Court?

What a waste of tax payer’s money.
