New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has finally heard that piece of news he dreaded for quite some time. Four games it’ll be.

After the longest time of no news, that one single, solitary piece of news that the entire sports world was waiting for has finally come down, and it’s rocked our world.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has learned that his appeal has gone by the wayside. He will, indeed, be suspended for the initial four-games that was handed down due to his role and uncooperative nature in Deflate-Gate.

Ben Volin of the Boston Globe was the first on the public scene after the NFL released the news via Rand Getlin of NFL Network.

Of course, Brady has been adamant all along that he’ll take his fight to the courts should his suspension not be reduced entirely.

Further complicating things is the idea that Brady ordered the destruction of his cell phone prior to the NFL’s investigation with Ted Wells. Stephen A. Smith reported it early this morning, and it came to fruition later on in the day (as per NFL).

For now we’ll continue to monitor this messy situation.
