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.
Others summed up how Patriots fans reacted.
Golfer Keegan Bradley was particularly glad Brady would be back on the field in 2015.
Sporting News reminded everyone there’s a baseball connection here, too.
George Atallah, the NFL Players Association’s assistant executive director of external affairs, obviously was happy to be on the winning side.
Comedian and Pittsburgh Steelers fan Seth Meyers gave us a look into how his team’s fanbase is feeling about playing the Patriots in Week 1.
