According to reports Roger Goodell is in no hurry to rule out Brady's appeal, mainly due to the fact that there is no incentive to. In other words, the longer Goodell waits, the better.
If Goodell were to announce the ruling early next week the NFLPA would have time to take the case to federal court. Also, the longer Goodell holds off the decision, the longer Brady has to think about his legacy and more importantly his standing in the public eye.
Deflategate and Spygate have already been seared into the minds of the of the general public. The results of that were clearly seen at the ESPY's when a picture of Tom Brady holding a phone was shown, as a joke, with the text under picture reading: Tom Brady's I'll Text You What To Do Fantasy Ball Boy Experience.
The ESPY's are just one clear example of just how much Tom Brady and the Patriots reputations have suffered since the inception of Deflategate. Even the president couldn't resist the urge to joke with the Patriots, especially when they visited the White House. Obama exclaimed,"I usually tell a bunch of jokes at these events, but with the Patriots in town I was worried 11 of 12 would fall flat," as Belichick and the rest of the Patriots smirked. Regardless of the shots that Tom Brady and the Patriots have taken thus far, a decision on Tom Brady's suspension will come soon.
According to ESPN, and Adam Schafter, Goodell and the NFL will wait until the end of July to announce their decision. Even if Goodell decides to uphold Brady's suspension, it is more probable than not that Brady will take the case to federal court. In federal court Brady can file an injunction, which freezes the NFL's ruling until the case is resolved. The injunction can only be lifted once a verdict is reached in federal court, either Brady will have his suspension reduced or he won't.
Regardless of what Goodell decides Tom Brady will face the consequences of Deflategate for the rest of his career.
