Brady’s Father Rips Goodell For Deflategate
While Tom Brady has kept tight lipped his feelings on NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, Brady's father has made it well known his perception of the man, who sullied his son's name.
In an interview with San Francisco's KRON, Tom Brady Sr. didn't mince his words, calling out Goodell for his handling of the witch hunt that was Deflategate.
Brady Sr. said Goodell's constant lies about the situation were "reprehensible," as far as he was concerned.
Brady's father followed up that scathing remark by further questioning Goodell and the league's treatment of his son and the Pats.
“He went on a witch hunt and went in way over his head and had to lie his way out in numerous ways and the reality is that Tommy never got suspended for deflating footballs,” Brady Sr. said. “He got suspended because the court said that he could, Roger Goodell could do anything he wanted to do to any player for any reason whatsoever. That’s what happened. The NFL admitted they had no evidence on him.”
Brady Sr. wrapped up his interview by commenting on Goodell's sentiment that it would be an honor for him to hand the Lombardi Trophy over to Brady, if the Pats win. Goodell, who made the remark on Colin Cowherd's FS1 program "The Herd," would be lucky to shear the stage with Brady, according to his father.
