Goodell is now 0-5 on his last five suspensions, and is not about to let this one get away.  "We are grateful to Judge Berman for hearing this matter, but respectfully disagree with today's decision. We will appeal today's ruling in order to uphold the collectively bargained responsibility to protect the integrity of the game. The commissioners' responsibility to secure the competitive fairness of our game is a paramount principle , and the league and our 32 clubs will continue to purse a path to that end.  WHil the legal phase of this process continues, we look forward to focusing on football and the opening of the regular season." said Goodell.

As of right now Tom Brady will be one the field a week from today to face off against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the NFL opener. You would have to expect Roger Goodell to be at the game also, but no he has announced that he will not be attendance due his love for the game. " the focus should be on the game on the field and the festivities celebrating the Patriots' Super Bowl championship." That does make sense that he won'y be there especially since for the last nine months he has been trying to tarnish that Super Bowl win.
