The Patriots have been fined 1 Million and Tom Brady was officially suspended by the NFL for 4 games, as punishment for the ever-popular ‘Deflate Gate’ scandal.
Reportedly, Tom Brady will be suspended for the first four games of the season without pay. They have also been stripped of their 2016 1st round draft pick AND 2017 4th round draft pick.
Both John Jastremski and James McNally, who were found guilty of having direct affiliation with deflating the balls have been fired without pay for good. All of this began over suspicions over the Patriot’s illegal deflation of balls during the 2015 Championship game vs the Colts. NFL VP of Football Operations said in a letter to Brady:
Each player, no matter how accomplished and otherwise respected, has an obligation to comply with the rules and must be held accountable for his actions when those rules are violated and the public’s confidence in the game is called into question.
