Brady is one of the most famous athletes on the planet. He’s also the greatest NFL quarterback ever but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t fallen foul of the rules. He infamously suffered a four-game ban as a result of the DeflateGate scandal in 2015 (via CBS Sports).
The Patriots also paid a $1 million fine after the incident that saw them cheat again. However, Brady had the last laugh because he won the NFL MVP award after his return. But it was catnip to all of the New England haters out there who loathed the team with a passion.
