The New England Patriots joined the latest "Deflategate" appeal to support Tom Brady on Wednesday, taking sides with their star quarterback in court for the first time in his fight against the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell. Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys In an eight-page, friend-of-the-court brief filed with the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the Patriots said they "stand to lose their All-Pro quarterback for 25 percent of the upcoming regular season based on a severely flawed process."   Cheap nfl jerseys They also raised the stakes in an effort to convince the entire circuit to overrule the 2-1 decision that reinstated Brady's four-game suspension last month. "The impact of the majority opinion is not limited to professional football," the brief said. "It threatens to undermine vital principles governing arbitration of collective bargaining agreements throughout the national economy." The Patriots have never wavered in their defense of Brady as he fights the penalty for being "at least generally aware" of a scheme to deflate footballs. But having failed to earn his exoneration with a public relations blitz or through backroom dealings with the league office, the team finally joined the court case that threatens to stretch into its third NFL season. The Patriots were also penalized by Goodell: a $1 million fine and the loss of two draft picks. At the time, Kraft accepted the punishment, saying he was just one member of a group and had to consider what was best for the league. But Kraft's attitude soured when Goodell, hearing Brady's appeal personally, refused to reduce the quarterback's penalty. A federal judge vacated the suspension, but he was overruled by the 2nd Circuit panel.  wholesale nfl jerseys
