Tom Brady Addresses Deflated Footballs in 'Deflate-Gate': I Don't Believe I'm a Cheater - Watch Now!

Tom Brady is currently in the middle of a press conference to address the major allegations that the New England Patriots played with deflated footballs in the AFC Championship Game this past weekend.

Eleven of the twelve balls on the Patriots side after half-time were found to be under-inflated. Under-inflated balls can be found to help grip and is a violation of the NFL’s rules.

“I didn’t alter the ball in any way…our equipment guys do a great job of breaking the balls in. When I pick those balls out, at that point, to me, they’re perfect. I don’t want anyone touching the balls after that. To me those balls are perfect. And that’s what I expect when I show up on the field,” Tom, the Quarterback of the Patriots and husband to supermodel Gisele Bundchen, said about picking balls before a game.

“I don’t believe [I'm a cheater.] I would never do anything to break the rules,” Tom said. “It’s a very competitive league. I believe in fair play.”

Tom also said the first he heard of “deflate-gate” was Monday morning, after the AFC Championship game. “I was surprised as anybody when I heard what was happening….I have no knowledge of anything. I’m very comfortable saying that.”

The press also asked Tom if he actually felt a difference in the footballs’ weight from the first half to the second half. “From the first half to the second half, I didn’t think twice about it,” Tom said.

“This isn’t ISIS, no one is dying…” Tom added when further questioned.

Tom‘s New England Patriots are set to face the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday (February 1) in the Super Bowl. The Patriots won the game against the Indianapolis Colts in a huge 45-7.

    What a surreal world we are living in …Tom Brady got more of a grilling from the press about footballs played in stupid game then Obama has had in 7 years as Preisdent .

  • Mercyneal

    He’s lying. And why did he wear that hat to a press conference? He needs to grow up. He’s pushing 38.

  • hottie

    I trust Tom and his balls.

  • Aaron Williams

    The conscious laugh when responding to the question indicates that he is lying. If so, then, yes Tom Brady, you’re a cheater.

  • jane

    he’s not being truthful, his body language alone showed how uncomfortable he was with the questioning. he left his pregnant gf to hook up with a model, and those types of actions show that he lacks integrity as a man. he might not be affected in the short-term, but in the long-term he won’t go down as the greatest of all time, he’ll go down with a shadow cast over his career with this team. it makes QBs like Peyton and Aaron look like the real stars they are, because they play with heart and not advantage. anyway… just hope Seattle and Sherman can do some damage to their overinflated egos

  • Star

    He didn’t leave his pregnant girlfriend for his wife. YOUR comment shows that YOU lack integrity as a woman.

  • TEX

    He did leave Bridget Moynahan who was pregnant at the time to get with Gisele. True he ended up marrying Gisele, but still, that was pretty sleazy.

  • Star

    So his ex-girlfriend is a liar, TEX?
