NEW YORK, NY – Tom Brady had until today to file his appeal, and that’s exactly what he did.
Now at the point to where those enamored and in outrage, fully enthused with the whole deflate-gate debacle are completely over the saga, Tom Brady brought it back into light today.
Monday morning, the New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his defense team filed an official petition to appeal in the US Court of Appeals. The declaration is to force the entire US Court of Appeals to hear the case over.
Brady comes back with a stacked defense lineup, headed by Ted Olson, former Solicitor General of the United States. Olsen is noted for arguing some of the highest Supreme Court such as Bush v. Gore and challenging Proposition 8, a California state constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.
The NFL isn’t backing down as well. In response to a strengthened team on the defense, Roger Goodell and the NFL have hired Eli Manning as their new lawyer.
With no previous legal and justice schooling nor experience, the decision seems odd with an entity as strong as the NFL to bring in the best and brightest lawyers in all of the field, yet Goodell has made it known that Eli will be their guy.
“He knows how to beat Brady. We’ve seen it done time and time again. And as for the big stage? If he did it in the Super Bowl, he can do it in the court room,” Goodell told reporters. He added, “we can’t wait to see Tom’s face when he see’s Eli standing across from him when we all gather in the Court of Appeals.”
