The NFL and pretty much everyone who follows it wishes the Deflategate saga to finally be over. The NFL’s legal team expressed these wishes with a court filing, today. NFL lawyers wrote that there is no need fo the a 14-day extension that was sought after by the New Englands Patriots, the NFLPA, and Tom Brady. One of the NFL’s lead councilors cited that “The first pre-season game is just over three months away and time remains of the essence.”
After a three-judge panel agreed that Commissioner Roger Goodell was within his authority to suspend Brady for four games, Brady, and the NFLPA requested a two-week extension, which would double the time to file a request for another rehearing.
