Twitter Reaction To Tom Brady’s Suspension Being Nullified In Federal Court

by

Everyone had an opinion when the Deflategate saga began after the 2014 AFC Championship Game, so naturally, there was a similar reaction when Tom Brady’s suspension was nullified.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard Berman overturned the New England Patriots quarterback’s four-game suspension Tuesday, citing that the NFL’s punishment didn’t fit the alleged crime of deflating footballs. And Twitter, of course, had a field day.

Most people, including Boston Celtics guard Evan Turner, tried to guess how Brady was feeling when the decision was announced.
