Brady to Kraft, "I'm Innocent and had nothing to do with the AFC Championship Deflated Balls..."

+New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft continues to lash out against the +NFL for its Deflategate punishment because he has unwavering trust in his quarterback.



Kraft, who’s already in San Francisco for the NFL Spring Meeting -- where he’ll be face-to-face with commissioner Roger Goodell and the other 31 team owners -- told the MMQB.com’s +Peter King that he believes Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had no knowledge of deflated footballs.

“Yes. Because we had the discussion: 'If you did it, let’s just deal with it and take our hit and move on,'” Kraft said. “I’ve known Tommy 16 years, almost half his life. He’s a man, and he’s always been honest with me, and I trust him. I believed what he told me. He has never lied to me, and I have found no hard or conclusive evidence to the contrary.”

Many Many issues with this whole dynamic Mr. Kraft?! If Kraft is so peeved and apparently what we would call, "... on the defensive," why would you restrain Ted Wells' investigation by not letting him speak to the ball boys. How come Kraft suspended them after the ruling. This is what PR experts for big kahunas like Kraft and companies like +Gillette and professional franchises like the Patriots' would do in circumstances to abuse the 'due process' by civil, criminal, and even the +NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell.

How come these ball boys were not made available to the appropriate people immediately? How come Tom Brady, if he were innocent, go against all sensibility and complete and utter logic (even by +University of Michigan standards) and give up access to his phone and email to prove his innocence beyond any shadow of a doubt immediately and lay it to rest?

Brady might be out of touch with a normal person's perspective, given his celebrity status and sense of 'entitlement' (something that is a very common theme amongst the Patriots franchise). Practically have earned the name "PatsGate" to be linked to every accomplishment Belichick has made, Brady's, and your own name, Kraft? Even a bigtime player such as yourself is not that untouchable.

Shall the members and fans that love the game of football, NFL, and +BRONCOS CR3W just stop there? The timing and your actions tell us that you are on the defensive over something that was committed and it was not utter innocence and coincidence that it was the Patriots that have come under fire for breaking and bending the rules several times. The only other team that committed similar acts, was the +Denver Broncos, who faced punishment and came clean with their own breaking of the rules. Broncos were under the lead and acumen of Josh McDaniels, who was the former Patriots Offensive Coordinator, prior to his position in Denver. Whom is back as the current Patriots Offensive Coordinator. Glad Bowlen said that was the last straw and kicked McDaniels to the curb!! Mile High will be ever so grateful to not be tarnished like their rival in New England.



No such thing as coincidences from where we sit. Brady, whom apparently is above and worthy of bending the rules just like your Head Coach, is considered a role model by only 61% of avid NFL supporters. That is a daunting number. A number that is below even Charles Barkley when he spat on a fan playing in the +NBA for the +Phoenix Suns and said, "I am not a role model," blatantly, loud, and clear. It certainly is sufficient enough. How about Belichick? Who went on the complete offensive after the AFC Championship game versus the +Indianapolis Colts and said that he does everything to account for margin of error so that they do not fall under any fault of breaking the rulebook and the operation of NFL teams prior to, during, and after games??

There are more holes in all 3 of their stories and press conferences than the +PGA TOUR's US Open and +Augusta National Golf Club.events... Starting to acquaint this franchise and team to the likes of Lance Armstrong, Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, and Floyd Landis. The question is do we place these guys amongst the likes of the previously mentioned athletes and competitors? Or does he go amongst perhaps a player like Nelson Cruz of the +Seattle Mariners in +MLB, Justin Gatlin, of the United States Olympic Track & Field team, that faced their punishment and came back to succeed by following the rules and not violating them? Appears the answer has already been served as you and your coach and QB will deny what appears to be utter obvious attempts at undermining the game and those that play within the lines and rules,,,
