'This is very sad and disappointing'

ESPN's Bill Polian on Robert Kraft: "He clearly had the perception ... appeal it, talk to the commissioner and the likelihood is it will get reduced. He had that expectation. That expectation wasn't met and he's upset."

'Wrong to put my faith in the league'

Patriots owner Robert Kraft: "I had hoped that Tom Brady's appeal to the league would provide Roger Goodell the necessary explanation. ... Now the league has taken the matter to court. A tactic only a lawyer would recommend."

Robert Kraft: I made a mistake

"I've come to the conclusion that this was never about doing what was fair and just. Back in May I had to make a difficult decision that I now regret. I chose to not take legal action. I chose to focus on football."

Jen Welter's biggest obstacle? Respect

"You have to earn the respect of players. ... Nobody wants to dislike a coach, and they don't want to not learn. ... It comes from them seeing you at work and seeing your passion and really starting to believe."

The new Cardinals coach saved the check, not for how much she made ($1 per game), but because of what it represents: "While it wasn't a dream I could have ever had, now it's a dream other girls can grow up having."
