In the wake of the news that the National Football League is handing down a four-game suspension without pay to New England Patriots’ player Tom Brady, the quarterback says he will appeal his punishment. Speaking through his agent who slammed the punishment, agent Don Yee said that the league’s punishment is ridiculous and has no legitimate basis. Yee noted that the NFL’s investigation of the “Deflategate” controversy showed no evidence against Brady. The NFL said their investigation said that Brady was generally aware that personnel were letting the air out of the balls. The NFL also fined the team $1 million and docked them two future draft picks. Brady will be eligible to play again in the fifth week of the regular season, coincidentally, that’s when the Pats meet the Colts again. This scandal originally came to light during the AFC Championship Game in January against the Colts–a story broken by WTHR.com sports reporter, Bob Kravitz.
