and with the clock ticking down to the season starting and the pats really wanting like the rest of the nfl to be able to know if they can start the season with brady  playing or have to wait for four games as he still serves his suspension which brady hopes the judge hearing his case throws it out. since brady made it known any ruling that still includes suspension he would not take. where the nfl and goodel want any settlement to include suspension espicly if a player does something like try and get rid of something like a cell phone that could have evidence of their involvement in a scandal like deflategate. plus also the nfl wants a quick settlement with brady going into the season to save some face and avoid any more damage. as the nfl and brady trying to end this thing fast but neither side are budging yet. the season may start with brady still fighting in a court room instead of being on afootball field for a bit.
