Tom Brady On DeflateGate: ‘I Did Not Alter The Ball In Any Way.’

“I feel like I’ve always played within the rules and I would never do anything to break the rules. I believe in fair play and I respect the league.”

-Tom Brady

A very nervous looking Tom Brady took the podium today at Gillette Stadium and addressed allegations the ball was tampered with at the AFC Championship Game. Brady of course went the denial route saying “I did not alter the ball in any way.”

For what it’s worth, Brady looked awfully flustered and not his usual self—the result of talking to lawyers and PR people all week (presumably). Also because he had to talk about the shape of his balls.
