Could Dunkin’ Donuts see trouble for ‘bribing’ Deflategate judge with free coffee for life?

To say New Englanders are happy that a judge overturned Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s four-game suspension would be a major understatement.

One Dunkin’ Donuts store in Maine is so overjoyed that it has offered U.S. District Judge Richard Berman, who overturned the suspension, free coffee for life.

Berman ruled Thursday that Brady did not receive due process, and slammed National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell for meting out “his own brand of industrial justice” in the case, in which Brady was accused of being party to deflating footballs to give the Patriots an edge in the 2015 Super Bowl.

A store sign making the offer made the rounds on social media, and the response was mixed. New England Patriots fans obviously loved it, but others were not so happy.

Perceived support for “cheating” could spell trouble for the popular company if Americans show disapproval with their wallets.
