Deflategate isn’t quite over, and Tom Brady remains benched.

The New England Patriots star quarterback’s appeal to the NFL has fallen flat.

Commissioner Roger Goodell says Brady will still be suspended for the first four games of the season for his role in Deflategate.

You probably remember the Patriots were accused of using under-inflated footballs to gain a competitive advantage in January’s AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts.

The Pats did win that game, but Brady has denied any involvement.

However, Goodell cited the fact that Brady destroyed his cell phone instead of handing it over to investigators as part of the reason the suspension will stand.

Brady now has the option of filing a lawsuit and taking the league to court.
