By now, you have all been aware of the garbage that Mr. Brady has placed upon his Facebook page trying to pander to his fanbase and anyone else who will listen to proclaim his innocence in the matter of what transpired with deflated footballs in January. However, if you are having trouble deciphering what he said, allow me to interpret what he really means in his post.
“I am very disappointed by the NFL’s decision to uphold the 4 game suspension against me. I did nothing wrong, and no one in the Patriots organization did either.
Roger and Bobby are tight. Like, they are best buddies, so why he would do this to me, ME of all people is crazy. You can’t prove I did anything, and neither did the two guys I threw under the bus.
Despite submitting to hours of testimony over the past 6 months, it is disappointing that the Commissioner upheld my suspension based upon a standard that it was “probable” that I was “generally aware” of misconduct. The fact is that neither I, nor any equipment person, did anything of which we have been accused. He dismissed my hours of testimony and it is disappointing that he found it unreliable.
The wording in the Wells report is suspect at best, and I went to talk to Roger, and even showed him some nudes of my wife in exchange for this to all go away. Y’all can’t prove shit that I did anything to those footballs. I took time out of MY schedule to meet with him and talk about how shit was going to go down, and he still said I was full of shit.
I also disagree with yesterdays narrative surrounding my cellphone. I replaced my broken Samsung phone with a new iPhone 6 AFTER my attorneys made it clear to the NFL that my actual phone device would not be subjected to investigation under ANY circumstances. As a member of a union, I was under no obligation to set a new precedent going forward, nor was I made aware at any time during Mr. Wells investigation that failing to subject my cell phone to the investigation would result in ANY discipline.
Because of the sensitive nature of what is on my phone, none of which is linked to this matter (photos of Gizelle), I wasn’t giving up my phone to anyone. F that drama. By mentioning both Samsung and Iphone I am hoping that if I am suspended, either of these two brands will give me an endorsement deal to make up the money I might lose by not playing. Are you out there Iphone? I am a union guy, but I will proclaim to be above everyone else. Quite the paradox, I know, but suck it, you aren’t getting anything from me.
Most importantly, I have never written, texted, emailed to anybody at anytime, anything related to football air pressure before this issue was raised at the AFC Championship game in January. To suggest that I destroyed a phone to avoid giving the NFL information it requested is completely wrong.
Because I never actually mentioned “air pressure” you can’t accuse me of shit. It was my fault that I didn’t purchase a burner to deal with this, and the fact that I gave the phone to Gronk to spike, you can’t prove either. I know people usually just stash their old phone when they are getting a new one, but I decided to destroy it. Once again, suck it.
To try and reconcile the record and fully cooperate with the investigation after I was disciplined in May, we turned over detailed pages of cell phone records and all of the emails that Mr. Wells requested. We even contacted the phone company to see if there was any possible way we could retrieve any/all of the actual text messages from my old phone. In short, we exhausted every possibility to give the NFL everything we could and offered to go thru the identity for every text and phone call during the relevant time. Regardless, the NFL knows that Mr. Wells already had ALL relevant communications with Patriots personnel that either Mr. Wells saw or that I was questioned about in my appeal hearing. There is no “smoking gun” and this controversy is manufactured to distract from the fact they have zero evidence of wrongdoing.
We gave the company money to only allow Mr. Wells to have some information but not all. That is, in all honestly, the Patriot way. We only let you have a little bit of information to speculate, but never actually prove anything. Spygate, you don’t know the half of it. Tuck Rule, we knew that shit going in. Y’all ain’t got shit on me, and I will reference a “smoking gun” to further deflect the fact that I am guilty as hell.
I authorized the NFLPA to make a settlement offer to the NFL so that we could avoid going to court and put this inconsequential issue behind us as we move forward into this season. The discipline was upheld without any counter offer. I respect the Commissioners authority, but he also has to respect the CBA and my rights as a private citizen. I will not allow my unfair discipline to become a precedent for other NFL players without a fight.
I thought the NFLPA were my boys, but since I am an arrogant prick, no one likes me (proven by lack of high fives), so they were glad to see me go down in flames. I also will pretend once again that I am part of a group that will be protected against any further suspicion from the NFL, but in actuality I am just putting on a front in case we cheat again, because you know, that IS the Patriot way.
Lastly, I am overwhelmed and humbled by the support of family, friends and our fans who have supported me since the false accusations were made after the AFC Championship game. I look forward to the opportunity to resume playing with my teammates and winning more games for the New England Patriots.
I am actually amazed at how many suckers are out there that are in my corner, but I will use them to my advantage. Remember that poor schmuck who started a fund to take care of the million dollar fine for the Patriots Organization? Thanks, moron. We used that shit to buy a drone to fly over opponents practices. Dipshit. I want to get back to playing for the Patriots because I know karma is a bitch, and Jimmy can run this team with the same execution as me, but I don’t want another Matt Cassel situation. If Jimmy starts and plays well, I could end up like Drew Bledsoe. That shit ain’t happening.”
