On September 2, 2015, Federal District Judge Richard Berman overturned the National Football League’s four-game suspension of quarterback Tom Brady over his role in ‘Deflategate’. Judge Berman’s order vacated NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s binding arbitration ruling. The NFL has now had its last four appealed arbitration decisions overturned. With the publicity surrounding these decisions, one might assume that the NFL’s losing record on appeal is typical. It is not.
