UPDATE - The NFL Players Association filed an appeal Wednesday on behalf of New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady, asking a federal court in Minnesota to overturn the four-game suspension upheld by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, the players' union announced on its website.


BOSTON -- New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady says the NFL is out of bounds. In so many words.

So. Many. Words.

In somewhat of a Facebook dissertation, Brady detailed his frustration with the National Football League's handing of the "inconsequential" deflategate situation and "narrative" over the meaning of his broken phone. He wrote: "To suggest that I destroyed a phone to avoid giving the NFL information it requested is completely wrong."

Brady's game face is on today because Commissioner Roger Gooddell just upheld his decision to suspend him for the first four games of the season. Needless to say Patriots Nation is pissed.

“The league's handling of this entire process has been extremely frustrating…” says Pats owner Robert Kraft.

At the end of Brady’s diatribe, he thanked friends and family for their support. At least he has a Bundchen of that.
