Tom Brady had a stellar day in court last Wednesday and now many lawyers, including Alan Milstein, an attorney who has previously tried cases against the NFL and Richard Berman, strongly believes that Berman will rule in Brady's favor. As great as that may seem, the two sides seem prepared to continue fighting long into the season.
One of the main points from the proceedings was that Judge Berman seemed very skeptical of the NFL's case against Tom Brady in an alleged ball deflation scheme. Although the legal battle has nothing to do with whether Brady allegedly deflated footballs, Berman seemed very interested in it. Berman went after the NFL's attorney, Steve Nash, asking him for specific evidence that Brady participated in the ball deflation scheme. On top of that, Berman argued that Brady played better with inflated balls. Also Nash conceded that no direct line of evidence linked Brady to the ball deflation. With regards to the proceedings, so far so good.
When Jefferey Kessler was called to answer questions he argued that Brady was not involved in any way. Kessler pointed out that the ball boys, Jastremski and McNally, were directly involved and that they deflated the balls to the lower end of the spectrum," in order to help their quarterback". Despite the hours of proceedings, there is still a lot of to go over on both sides of the ball.
Deflategate will continue.......
