Tom Brady Sr.: Goodell ‘went in way over his head and had to lie his way out’

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s father is slamming NFL commissioner Roger Goodell once again as his son prepares for yet another Super Bowl game.

Tom Brady Sr., in an interview aired on KRON 4 in San Francisco, talked about how hard it was to see his son in the middle of such an unnecessary controversy:

“When it happens to your son, it’s a whole different context,” Brady said. “Or your daughter or any one of your kids and I think any parent kind of understands that. They’d rather take the slings and arrows in the heart than have their kids take it. For what the league did to him (Tom Brady) and what Roger Goodell constantly lied about is beyond reprehensible as far as I’m concerned.”

“He went on a witch hunt and went in way over his head and had to lie his way out in numerous ways and the reality is that Tommy never got suspended for deflating footballs,” he added.

“He got suspended because the court said that he could, Roger Goodell could do anything he wanted to do to any player for any reason whatsoever. That’s what happened. The NFL admitted they had no evidence on him.”
