How "Deflategate" could keep Tom Brady and Gisele from being allowed to join The Country Club in Brookline

July 01, 2015

Forget about a possible suspension keeping Tom Brady from playing in the NFL for a few weeks. "Deflategate" could wind up keeping the New England Patriots quarterback out of one of the country's most exclusive golf clubs forever.

That, according to a report in the Boston Globe. You see, Tom and his supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen, live in a mansion that sits on The Country Club in Brookline, Mass., and Brady, being a golfer, would like to join.

As you can imagine, though, a place called THE Country Club is pretty exclusive. And it's members might not want all the hoopla that comes with admitting a four-time Super Bowl champion, especially since he has been embroiled in controversy since the Patriots were caught using footballs that weren't inflated to NFL specifications in their AFC Championship win over the Indianapolis Colts in January.
