New England Patriots fans have organized a 'Free Tom Brady' rally set for the Gillette Stadium parking lot on Sunday.
In a public Facebook event, fans scheduled "a peaceful rally to protest the unjust football arrest of half God half man Tom Brady" from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
The NFL suspended Brady has been suspended for the first four games of next season for his role in the "Deflategate" scandal, after an investigation revealed he was 'at least generally aware' of the team using deflated balls in the AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts.
As of Saturday afternoon, 341 people confirmed they would be attending. Patriots fans, as well as the organization, have staunchly supported their quarterback in lieu of the news.
Brady appealed the suspension through the NFL Players Association, whose request to have commissioner Roger Goodell recuse himself from the hearing was reportedly denied.
