APPEALS

Just a day after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld the four-game suspension of New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady, the NFL players’ union filed a federal lawsuit challenging the decision. It is unclear when a judge will see the complaint. “No player in NFL history has served a suspension for ‘non-cooperation’ or ‘obstruction,’” the NFL Players Association said in the statement. “In this case, the evidence is paper-thin.” The league claimed Brady trashed his cellphone to avoid handing it over to authorities during an investigation on the deflating of footballs leading up to the Super Bowl last year. On Wednesday morning, Brady expressed on Facebook that he and the Patriots hadn’t done anything wrong.
