'I tried to do what I thought was right'

Patriots owner Robert Kraft blasted the NFL for upholding Tom Brady's four-game suspension and apologized to the team's fans for agreeing to accept the league's penalties. 'I was wrong'


Robert Kraft: I regret backing off

Patriots owner Robert Kraft: "Tom Brady is a person of great integrity ... Yet for reasons I cannot comprehend, there are those in the league office who are more determined to prove that they were right rather than admit any culpability of their own or take any responsibility through the initiation of a process and ensuing investigation that was flawed."

Tom Brady: 'I did nothing wrong'

Wrote the Patriots QB on his Facebook page: "The fact is that neither I, nor any equipment person, did anything of which we have been accused. [Commissioner Roger Goodell] dismissed my hours of testimony and it is disappointing that he found it unreliable." Full statement

'Wrong to put my faith in the league'

Joe Schad @schadjoe

Joe Schad @schadjoe

Kraft's reason for being upset

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."
