The NFL has announced that Commissioner Roger Goodell officially has told the NFLPA he will not recuse himself, and will in fact hear Tom Brady’s #DeflateGate appeal.

“Because protecting the integrity of the game is the commissioner’s most important responsibility, I decline to rewrite our Collective Bargaining Agreement to abrogate my authority and discretion to hear any appeal in a conduct detrimental proceeding,” he wrote.

While many knew already that Goodell would be overseeing the case, it will be interesting to see what happens.
