New England Patriots fans held true to their vow to support their suspended quarterback, Tom Brady, as around 150 of them banded together at Gillette Stadium for a rally.
The fans met up for a rally called “Free Tom Brady,” which was in protest against his four-game suspension handed down by the league for his role in DeflateGate.
The Patriots were discovered to have deflated game balls in the AFC Championship against the Indianapolis Colts, and Brady was ruled to have likely played a role in it.
The 243-page Ted Wells report stated that Brady was at least generally aware of this scandal.
The fans gathered for this rally on Sunday and wore Brady jerseys, and they called for commissioner Roger Goodell to reverse Brady’s suspension.
The Patriots most recently won the Super Bowl, which marked theirs and Brady’s fourth Super Bowl ring, but their effort to repeat will be far from easy.
However, Brady is currently appealing his suspension and may have it reduced to two games.
