The National Football League's hardline stance on Tom Brady and his role in "Deflategate" sparked predictions on Tuesday that the star quarterback could see his four-game suspension reduced through an appeal. The severity of the punishment for the New England Patriots star combined with a spate of overturned NFL sanctions bode well for Brady in the appeals process, experts said. The appeal, which must be lodged by Thursday at 5 p.m. ET (2100 GMT), would follow a flurry of questions about NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's handling of other high-profile cases last season. Brady's four-game suspension is seen as harsh by many, who note it is the same as what is handed to first time offenders violating the league's rules on performance-enhancing drugs, and double the number of games Goodell initially gave Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice for a domestic violence incident.
