Tom Brady appeal hearing ends after nearly 11 hours
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(6/23/15) The appeal hearing for Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady over his "deflate-gate" suspension ended on Tuesday after nearly 11 hours.
NFL executive Greg Aiello tweeted, "The Tom Brady appeal hearing concluded tonight after 10 hours of testimony. No further hearings are scheduled."
NFL Players Association attorney Jeffrey Kessler said that the union presented a "compelling case" and that Brady was present until "the bitter end," per CNN's Rachel Nichols.
Brady didn't speak or testify at the hearing, per the New York Post.
There is no timetable for Roger Goodell to make a ruling on the appeal. Greg Hardy's appeal was heard on May 28, and no ruling has been released on that case yet.
Report: Tom Brady appeal won't be heard by Wednesday
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's appeal won't be heard by Wednesday, the Associated Press reported, citing sources.
Brady is appealing his four-game suspension as a result of the investigation into deflated footballs prior to the AFC Championship Game.
The NFL collective bargaining agreement requires appeals to be heard within 10 days, a window that expires on Wednesday. As of Monday, no hearing had been scheduled.
Appeals can be heard after the 10-day window, if the league and players union agree to extend the deadline, which is likely to occur in the Brady case.
Union: Goodell must back off hearing of Patriots QB Tom Brady
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) NFLPA head DeMaurice Smith is growing impatient awaiting word from Roger Goodell on the request of the NFL commissioner to recuse himself as arbitrator of the appeal hearings ofPatriots quarterback Tom Brady.
The league suspended Brady for the first four games next season for his alleged role in the Deflategate scandal, claiming that he likely knew that game balls were being deflated for his benefit before the 2014 AFC title game.
Smith is claiming that neither Goodell nor the Wells Report, which investigated the incident, could legitimately claim impartiality. He added that the NFLPA will "advance the volume" of the request if they don't hear from Goodell by next week. Part of the union's press release reads as follows:
Given a process that has contained procedural violations of our collective bargaining agreement, the Commissioner's role as a central witness in the appeal hearing and his evident partiality with respect to the Wells report, the Commissioner must designate a neutral party to serve as arbitrator in this matter. The players also believe that the Commissioner's history of inconsistently issuing discipline against our players makes him ill-suited to hear this appeal in a fair-minded manner.
As for the Wells Report, Smith stated that "you can't really have credibility just because you slap the word independent on a piece of paper." He offered into evidence the findings in regard to NFL official Walt Anderson, who was a key figure in the investigation, citing one part of the report questions his memory and another credits it.
Jets' Darrelle Revis won't defend Pats' Tom Brady on Deflategate
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/20/15) Darrelle Revis is in a unique position when it comes to the Deflategate controversy.
When the initial allegation was made following the AFC Championship, Revis was a member of the Patriots and teammates with Tom Brady. Now he's back on the Jets and a rival of the team he won a Super Bowl with this past season.
When asked by the New York Daily News about the issue, Revis didn't say his old teammate should get a pass.
"Everybody's blowing it up because it is Tom Brady," Revis said. "I understand that. But if (the NFL) feels he did the crime or he did something and they want to penalize them, then that's that. (The Patriots) have a history of doing stuff. You can't hide that. ... Tom was there when they did that stuff in the past."
Revis added that if Brady wins his appeal and his suspension is reduced it should be due to new evidence, not because of who he is in relation to the NFL's brand.
"If I fail a drug test, then I fail a drug test. If I get a DUI, I get a DUI," Revis said. "If Tom gets caught with a DUI, it's a DUI. ... If they are saying that he did what he's done, then the suspension is the suspension. I'm not the commissioner and don't make the rules. If they want to change (the suspension) based on new information or new evidence, then okay, but it should have nothing to do with Tom being the face (of the NFL)."
Roger Goodell will hear appeal of Patriots' Tom Brady
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/14/15) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's appeal of his four-game suspension will be heard by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell , the league announced on Thursday.
The statement from the NFL read, "Commissioner Goodell will hear the appeal of Tom Brady's suspension in accordance with the process agreed upon with the NFL Players Association in the 2011 collective bargaining agreement."
Brady's suspension was handed down by NFL Executive Vice President Troy Vincent, not Goodell.
|Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will have his work cut out for him this season if he hopes to remain a Top 10 Fantasy quarterback. In May, the NFL suspended Brady for the first four games of the season -- matchups against Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Jacksonville and Dallas -- and New England also has a Week 4 bye. Barring an appeal, that's a lot of games to miss for a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback. Now, we know that in 2014 we saw Brady get off to a slow start, but he still finished as a Top 10 Fantasy quarterback. You can expect that when he does return to the field he'll do it with a chip on his shoulder and still with tremendous weapons in Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell as the top options. We still consider Brady a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback, but his value drops with the suspension. He's now worth drafting with a mid-round pick instead of an early-round selection, and you'll want to pair him with a high-upside No. 2 quarterback for the start of the year. Jimmy Garoppolo will start in Brady's place, and he's not a viable replacement option. We just hope Garoppolo doesn't hurt the value of New England's main weapons until Brady returns.
