Tom Brady, facing dismal odds in the final phase of his legal clash with the
National Football League, capitulated Friday and accepted a four-game suspension
for allegedly violating the integrity of his sport by conspiring to deflate
footballs he threw for the Patriots in their 2015 conference championship game.

A master of last-gasp miracles on the football field, Brady grudgingly abandoned
his high-stakes legal conflict as it became apparent his last chance for
vindication from the US Supreme Court was all but certain to fail.

Brady’s surrender ends an ugly chapter in NFL history, a protracted showdown
between a powerful commissioner, Roger Goodell, and one of sport’s most
celebrated stars. The episode essentially escalated from a dispute over a minor
variation in the air pressure of footballs to a federal case over corporate
disciplinary procedures and labor rights.

“It has been a challenging 18 months and I have made the difficult decision to
no longer proceed with the legal process,’’ Brady’s post stated. “I’m going to
work hard to be the best player I can be for the New England Patriots and I look
forward to having the opportunity to return to the field this fall.’’

Under NFL rules, Brady will not be allowed to appear at the Patriots facility or
have any contact with the team, including the coaching staff, during his
four-week suspension. He can participate in all preseason activities.

Brady will be absent from the team’s opener Sept. 11 at Arizona and from home
games the following three weeks against Miami, Houston, and Buffalo. He will be
eligible to return Oct. 9 when the Patriots play the Browns in Cleveland.

If Brady is elected to Congress, can he deflate Trump's balls?

The Trumpster needs no help...he's already doing an admirable job of it.

...it's just a matter of time until he indicts himself on colluding with the
Russians to get elected.
