While Tom Brady’s overturned suspension is a big blow to the NFL, players are celebrating and stomping on Roger Goodell in the process.
The NFL Players Association released a statement slamming Goodell and questioning his authority, saying, “This decision should prove, once and for all, that our Collective Bargaining Agreement does not grant this Commissioner the authority to be unfair, arbitrary and misleading.”
Players in the meantime have taken to Twitter to celebrate Brady’s victory:

Of course, the Patriots got in on the act, too, with a bit of trolling:
