So, earlier this week an NFL report was released that claimed Patriots QB, Tom Brady, was “generally aware” team staffers deflated game footballs during the AFC Championship. Shocker…. (*sarcasm*)
The NFL report found that it was “unlikely that an equipment assistant and a locker room attendant would deflate game balls without Brady’s knowledge and approval.”
Text messages between team personnel seemed to show they were following orders from Brady.
And on Thursday, he was doing a pre-arranged appearance at Salem State University, and during the Q&A, Brady said this about the Patriot’s Super Bowl win:
“We earned and achieved everything we got as a team, and we’re pretty proud of that.”
But he declined to address the report any further during his sit-down with sportscaster Jim Gray.
“It’s only been 30 hours, so I haven’t had time to digest it fully, but when I do, I’ll let you know how I feel about it,” Brady said.
“Are you that slow a reader?” Gray asked. (<—– HAHAHAAAA GOTEEM!)
“I’m used to reading X’s and O’s — this was a bit longer,” Brady replied.
When Gray asked if the Super Bowl win was tainted by the allegations in the report, Brady responded, “Absolutely not.”
