New England Patriots Scandal

JURIST Editorial Coordinator Josh Guckert and Social Media Coordinator Matt Belenky discuss the recent controversy which found itself in court concerning the National Football League and Tom Brady of the New England Patriots. After Brady was suspended for four games by the league for allegedly tampering (or having knowledge of others tampering) with footballs before a game, he successfully appealed his punishment to a New York federal court, where it was ruled that he had had inadequate notice that such a penalty was possible. This is only the latest instance of the NFL Players Association prevailing over the league and Commissioner Roger Goodell through the use of the legal system. What does this turn of events mean for the NFL and any proposed suspensions moving forward?
