The Pats again led the NFL in fewest TOs again in 2016...

From what I read they appeals court didn't comment on Brady. The ruling was based on that the players agreed to Goodell being prosecutor, judge and jury in the latest CBA.

"Overturning that decision, the 2nd Circuit judges ruled that Goodell had "properly exercised his broad discretion under the collective bargaining agreement and that his procedural rulings were properly grounded in that agreement and did not deprive Brady of fundamental fairness."

In his dissent, Chief Judge Robert Katzmann made some of the same arguments that the lower court did. Mainly, Katzmann argues, that Goodell acted unfairly because when he changed the factual basis for disciplinary action after the hearing, he denied Brady a chance "to confront the case against him."

Writing for the panel, Circuit Judge Barrington D. Parker says that labor law means that a federal court has to be "highly deferential" to the decisions made during arbitration." NPR
