Tom Brady’s ban ‘unfathomable’

New England Patriots owner welcomed Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots to the White House Robert Kraft harshly criticized NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s ‘s decision to uphold Tom Brady’s four game suspension, calling it “unfathomable.”

Kraft apologized to the team’s fans . “I was wrong to put my faith in the league” — and expressed regret for not taking legal action against the NFL. There are those in the league office who are more determined to prove they were right rather than admit any culpability,” Kraft said.

Kraft and head coach Bill Belichick held a press conference to address Goodell’s decision regarding their star quarterback’s punishment as the Patriots’ veterans report to training camp. “I felt it was important to make a statement today, prior to the start of training camp,” Kraft said to open the press conference. “After this, I will not be talking about this matter until after the legal process plays itself out, and I would advise everyone in the organization to do the same and just concentrate on preparation for the 2015 season. The decision handed down by the league yesterday is unfathomable to me. It is routine for discipline in the NFL to be reduced upon appeal. In the vast majority of these cases, there is tangible and hard evidence of the infraction for which the discipline is being imposed, and still the initial penalty gets reduced. Six months removed from the AFC Championship game, the league still has no hard evidence of anybody doing anything to tamper with the PSI levels of footballs,” he said. “I continue to believe and unequivocally support Tom Brady. I first and foremost need to apologize to our fans, because I truly believe what I did in May, given the actual evidence of the situation and the league’s history on discipline matters, would make it much easier for the league to exonerate Tom Brady,” Kraft added.
