New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady Wednesday lost a bid for a new hearing before a U.S. appeals court on his "Deflategate" four-game suspension, a decision that could mark the end of his legal fight. In a brief order, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York said it would not reconsider its Apr. 25 decision to reinstate Brady's suspension by the National football League over deflated footballs.Brady was suspended after the NFL discovered underinflated footballs were used in the Patriots' 45-7 rout of the Indianapolis Colts in the 2015 AFC championship game.Brady, twice the NFL's most valuable player, was suspended after a lawyer hired by the league to investigate the matter said the quarterback was "generally aware" that two Patriots employees had conspired to deflate the footballs, which could make them easier to grip.
