    Tom Brady of the New England Patriots throws a ball during organized team activities at Gillette Stadium on June 4, 2015 in Foxborough, MassachusettsThe New England Patriots accused the NFL of "attempting to destroy" the reputation of Tom Brady on Tuesday after league commissioner Roger Goodell upheld the superstar quarterback's four-game "Deflate-gate" ban. "We are extremely disappointed in today's ruling by Commissioner Goodell," the Patriots said in a strongly worded statement. "We also believe that the laws of science continue to underscore the folly of this entire ordeal," said the statement from the team that has insisted the underinflated balls used by Brady and his team-mates during their AFC championship game win over Indianapolis could have been the result of a natural loss of air pressure.

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell speaks to the media before Super Bowl XLIX in PhoenixBy Steve Ginsburg WASHINGTON (Reuters) - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday upheld a four-game suspension of Tom Brady for his role in deflating footballs used in the game that put the New England Patriots in the 2015 Super Bowl, saying for the first time that the star quarterback had his phone destroyed to keep it out of hands of investigators. In the latest turn in the scandal, known as "Deflategate," Goodell said he affirmed the suspension in part because of the new revelation that Brady made "a deliberate effort" to keep investigators from reading text messages stored on the device.

    Tom Brady #12 of the New England Patriots warms up prior to playing in Super Bowl XLIX at University of Phoenix Stadium on February 1, 2015 in Glendale, ArizonaTom Brady's four-match ban over the "Deflate-gate" scandal was upheld on Tuesday as it emerged the New England Patriots star had ordered the destruction of a cellphone containing potentially crucial evidence. In a bombshell ruling which followed speculation that Brady's ban would be slashed or even cancelled, National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell said the original punishment would stand. Brady, one of the most high-profile athletes in American sport, had been suspended in May after an inquiry found he was at least "generally aware" of a plot by Patriots staff to tamper with the air pressure of balls used during the AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts earlier this year.
