Tom Brady, Sr. is still pissed at Roger Goodell, despite Goodell’s recent public attempts to make nice prior to the Super Bowl.
Earlier this week, Commissioner Goodell stopped by The Herd, and told Colin that, “It would be an honor” to hand the Lombardi trophy to Brady if he were to defeat the Falcons to win his fifth Super Bowl.
Goodell said all the right things, but Tom Brady, Sr. isn’t buying it. And since he doesn’t have a Bill Belichick gag order in place, he sat down for a recent interview with San Francisco TV station KRON to let loose on the Commish.
Brady, Sr. didn’t mince words in expressing his dislike for Goodell, and how he feels his son was railroaded during the prolonged Deflategate scandal.
“For what the league did to [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 got in way over his head, and had to lie his way out numerous ways. The reality is, Tommy never got suspended for deflating footballs, he got suspended because the court said that 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.”
Big Tom also responded to Goodell’s comments from his interview with Colin, in which he said he would be honored to hand Tom the Lombardi Trophy. In his eyes, Goodell doesn’t deserve to share the podium with his son.
“It should be an honor, because somebody that has Roger Goodell’s ethics doesn’t belong on any stage that Tom Brady’s on.”
Even if Goodell does end up handing the Lombardi to trophy, it might be a good idea to steer clear of pops.
