- Court was adjourned yesterday in the NFL’s “Deflate-Gate” case, that many see as Roger Goodell vs. Tom Brady and NFLPA, with no resolution.
"Everyone is of a view that this case can be resolved expeditiously." The Judge seemed skeptical of Ted Wells's dual role as lead investigator and attorney hired by the NFL. Berman also added civil cases of this nature typically last 2 years. "I think it’s safe to say nobody here wants to wait that long”, ”I think there are strengths and weaknesses to both sides here”.
So with this all being said its back to the drawing board to reach a settlement between Brady and the NFL. The biggest hang up is that the NFL wants Brady to admit guilt. But Brady can't accept Wells’ report in settlement since his testimony refutes it. The union and Brady's position remains same: A fine, no games suspended and no admission of guilt. Looks like a long road ahead and we will likely see Brady Week 1 versus Pittsburgh.
