AFL-CIO labor group joins Brady's 'Deflategate' appeal

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The AFL-CIO has joined Tom Brady's fight to overturn his "Deflategate" appeal.

The labor federation filed a friend of the court brief on Monday asking the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider a decision handed down by a three-judge panel in April.

Brady was suspended four games for what the league said was a scheme to use improperly inflated footballs in the 2015 AFC Championship game. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell rejected his initial appeal, and Brady appealed to the federal courts.
