Tom Brady’s dad had strong words for the findings of The Wells Report, before the punishment of suspending his son was made public. I can’t imagine what he thinks now, or how much more angry he is with the NFL now.
Tom Brady SR, spoke with USA Today Sports last week about The Wells Report.
“I don’t have any doubt about my son’s integrity — not one bit,” Tom Brady Sr. told USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday. “In this country, you’re innocent until proven guilty. It just seems Tommy is now guilty until proven innocent. This thing is so convoluted. … They say that possibly — possibly — he was aware of this. The reality is if you can’t prove he did it, then he’s innocent, and lay off him. That’s the bottom line. They had to protect their asses, and that’s what they’re doing. I just read that four Colts balls were underinflated. Amazing. Amazing. They’re saying he’s possibly aware. … How do you put a cloud over somebody like this?” he asked. “To impugn somebody without conclusive evidence saying this is more probable than not? The reality is they have scientific evidence. Now they’re overriding the scientific evidence and badgering the Patriots. It’s disgusting. This was Framegate right from the beginning. How can Tommy defend himself? It’s impossible. This is so distorted. To have something come out like this and say it’s more probable than not? What does that mean? I’m watching the NFL Network saying he could be fined and suspended. Are you kidding me? There was definitely a sting going on,” Brady Sr. said. “And as much as the Colts knew there was going to be a sting, they still had four underinflated balls. I just don’t know how they can impugn someone like this.”
