Night net null The Night net doesn't see any reason for re-entering settlement talks with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and the players' union regarding his Deflategate-related suspension, reported, citing an unidentified league source.The league is basing its stance on two things: a federal appeals court earlier this week upheld Brady's four-game suspension, and neither the quarterback's camp nor the Night net Players Association has shown a reason to resume settlement talks. Night net DRAFT: News, rumors, mockThe Night net, according to ESPN's source, believes the time for those talks has come and gone. The sides talked for several months last summer but were unable to reach a settlement. Goodell says the league would like to move forward.He said so while speaking to reporters Wednesday in Chicago on the eve of the Night net Draft's first round, during which it appears the Patriots will be merely spectators after forfeiting their top pick as part of the team's punishment for Deflategate. Goodell also told FS1's Colin Cowherd on Wednesday's "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" that he isn't likely to reduce Brady's suspension, even if requested to do so by owners who are eager to put the issue in the rear-view mirror.Cowherd: "What if a very convincing owner that you respected said, 'Let’s lower it to two (games). It’s bad PR, it seems too harsh.' Would you listen to it?"Goodell: "I listen to everybody …  but we’ve had these discussions. This was an issue just about a year ago, I think, right after I left the draft. When we make these decisions, it’s with a tremendous amount of thought, a tremendous amount of consideration. Our staff worked very hard on it, and I think that we have given that full consideration. We’re careful — and this is where the commissioner’s authority is important — we don’t allow individual clubs to influence an outcome with respect to discipline because it can affect other clubs."The rules of the league, obviously, the competitiveness of the league, that’s handed to the commissioner by the 32 c

lubs for exactly that reason — to avoid any club getting a competitive advantage. So, while I listen — I obviously will take anything into consideration, and sometimes it’s meaningful, sometimes there’s another point that is in my view more powerful or our staff may view more powerful — you have to balance that. And recognizing, Colin, that it’s not likely that I’m going to find a solution that everyone is going to agree on."Night netPA executive George Atallah on Tuesday said the union is reviewing the appeals court's decision and weighing its options, including an appeal to the full federal appeals court panel or to the Supreme Court. The Night netPA has two weeks to make a decision on an appeal.
