When the Wells Report implicated Tom Brady back in May, the New York tabloids predictably slammed the New England Patriots quarterback with screaming headlines featuring deflated football puns galore.

Thursday’s news was a bit more kind to Brady, however, as U.S. District Court Judge Richard Berman ruled to nullify the QB’s four-game Deflategate suspension.

So how did the tabloids respond to what essentially was a major victory for the star of their town’s arch-nemesis? Let’s just say it was a bit different (although the ball puns still were there).

As you can see, the reaction is kind of all over the map, as the papers seemingly can’t decide whether to rip Brady for getting off scot-free or NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for completely botching the situation.
