Social Media Reacts to Tom Brady’s Suspension

Quarterback for the New England Patriots, Tom Brady has been suspended for four of the 2015 NFL regular season football games due to his involvement with the Deflategate controversy. The Wells Report reached a conclusion that  the quarterback was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities (Patriots won Super Bowl in February vs. Seattle Seahawks).

What is the Deflategate?

How this will effect the Patriots:

  • Patriots fined $1 million
  • Will forfeit a first-round pick in 2016 and a fourth-round pick in 2017
  • Brady will not play in 4 games with no pay
