BOSTON - There are reports that Tom Brady will be suspended for his role in "Deflategate." According to the New York Daily News, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will make the announcement sometime next week.
Four-time Super Bowl champion and alleged deflator Tom Brady made his first public appearance Thursday night since the news broke that this superstar is probably super guilty of cheating.
But the hometown crowd at Salem State University is standing by their man.
The crowd definitely had Brady's back. And although folks wanted to hear what Brady would say, the Patriots' golden boy did his best to take the air out the situation.
"I haven't had much time to digest it fully," Brady said. "But when I do, I'll be sure to let you know how I feel about it.”
All Brady was feeling Thursday night was love. When asked if any of this diminished his joy of winning the Super Bowl, “Absolutely not,” he said, which earned him more cheers from the fans.
But there might not be much to cheer about once the NFL's discipline comes down, especially from a commissioner who's been making it a point to hand out harsh suspensions lately.
Don't expect this ruling to be full of hot air.
