The New England Patriots organization is mum about Deflategate — with the exception of owner Robert Kraft, who reiterated his stance at the 2015 Patriots Premiere, a charity gala held at Gillette Stadium.
“I spoke on behalf of the team and addressed the organization’s position regarding, in my opinion, the most overblown story in recent NFL history,’’ Kraft said Tuesday night, via a video on CSNNE.com, “and I advised our coach, his staff, and all of the players to ignore the noise and keep their focus on what was most important for this coming season.’’
During a press conference in August, Belichick made it clear that Kraft’s words spoke for the Patriots staff and players, after Kraft said he “was wrong to put my faith in the league.’’
Brady awaits the ruling from Judge Richard Berman on his appeal of his four-game suspension handed down by Roger Goodell for Brady’s role in Deflategate.
Bill Belichick’s not mad; this is just his RBF
