Report: Tom Brady ‘Generally Aware Of The Inappropriate Activities’
Tom Brady had knowledge of what was going on according to a deflategate report.
The report found that “it is more probable than not” that the locker room attendant and equipment assistant “participated in a deliberate effort to release air from Patriots game balls after the balls were examined by the referee” at January’s AFC title game between the Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts.
“Based on the evidence, it also is our view that it is more probable than not that Tom Brady … was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities … involving the release of air from Patriots game balls,” the report, prepared by attorney Ted Wells, said…
The report absolved other Patriots players and staffers, as well as all coaches, including head coach Bill Belichick, and the team ownership.
Patriots owner Robert Kraft was defiant in response, saying he was disappointed in the findings and still believed the team did nothing to violate NFL rules.
Kraft criticized what he called “inferences from circumstantial evidence,” adding that “the time, effort and resources expended to reach this conclusion are incomprehensible to me.”
