RIP deflate-gate, January 2015-October 2016 (Shutdown Corner)

Deflate-gate, 624 days old, of Foxborough, Mass., died Sunday night, Oct. 2, after succumbing to a long battle fueled by the NFL. The NFLPA announced the end of a long, brave fight on Twitter. After consultation with Tom Brady and our appellate counsel, we have decided to not pursue additional appeals in this matter.
