Federal Judge Richard Berman has just taken the air out of Deflategate. He reversed the ruling of the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspending New England Patriots quarterback Tom Broady for 4 games. In his ruling he said that the NFL commissioner’s findings were illogical.
For instance, the presumption that there was a sought after advantage in purposefully deflating the footballs was belied by the fact that Brady’s game in the first half, when the balls were deflated, was poorer than the second half when they were not deflated.
Other issues remain to be decided by the judge.
