Players, fans react to 'Deflategate' punishment for Tom Brady, New England Patriots

SEATTLE -- The Internet quickly and swiftly reacted to the NFL's announcement that New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady would be suspended for four games without pay.

This comes after the "Deflategate" incident in which the team was found to have used underinflated footballs to gain an advantage in the playoffs.

The Patriots were fined $1 million and the team will forfeit its first-round selection in the 2016 NFL Draft and fourth-round pick in the 2017 draft, the league announced Monday.

Players and analysts took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the punishment.

Several Seahawks' players tweeted asking fans what they thought of the punishment, but they did not give opinions themselves.

And fans began using the hashtag #BradyReax to share some more, eh, lighthearted responses to the ruling.
