When Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his first public comments about Judge Richard Berman’s decision to overturn his four-game suspension last week, he said he was “sorry our league had to endure this” and that he was “also sorry to anyone whose feelings I may have hurt” while defending himself against the league.
On Tuesday, Brady made an appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show on WEEI in Boston and what Brady termed the “tough, challenging seven months” that ended with Berman’s decision were a major topic of conversation. Brady said that there were “different emotions” that came up during that period of time and that he has a lot of “personal feelings” about the entire saga, but that he has to put them aside right now because the season is about to start.
“I think there’s definitely different moments where I thought a lot of different things,” Brady said. “It definitely had it’s challenges, I’ll leave it at that. Maybe I will elaborate at a later time, but right now, two days before our season starts, I don’t think is really the time. It’s best to focus my energy and my teammates’ energy on the task at hand.”
One can probably guess at a few of Brady’s feelings about everything that’s gone on since the AFC Championship game, but the full airing of them should make for a pretty good read/watch/listen whenever Brady does decide to open up the floodgates.
