As for Kraft, Belichick and Brady acting "confident"? They seem more defiant than confident to me. I will admit that there is a very good chance, if not every chance that Kraft is innocent in all of this and that he is simply defending in his employees, whom he trusts. However, Belichick threw Tom Brady under the bus with his statement, and then Tom Brady threw the NFL under the bus with his statement. Their denials were no more than trying to pass the buck onto someone else before it got too ugly and understandably so since this can easily distract a team, especially in the biggest game of the year in the Super Bowl. If I was confident I was innocent in something, I wouldn't actively try to prove my innocents before the investigation was finished. I wouldn't spend so much of my time trying to calm this down as the Patriots have (with Belichick and Brady having their own separate, individual press conferences to address the situation). If Tom Brady did nothing, he shouldn't have to answer any questions about this. If Bill Belichick did nothing, I would have expected a simple statement to the media that he will let due process sort this out and is only focused on the Super Bowl. They are visibly rattled by this. There is enough evidence against them that they have to spend this much time and energy focusing on this. I think that speaks to some level of guilty conscience whether it be direct, or indirect.
NFL.com is just as good as ESPN or any other news site.
The video claims the employee took the ball to a bathroom on the way to the field for less than 90 seconds. I am not going to spend my time reposting what I have already said in the other thread.
Belichick didnt throw Brady under the bus. That whole set of speeches was set up perfectly. If Belichick really threw Brady under the bus Brady would still be dealing with these questions, which isnt the case. Belichick set Brady up to make his speech and then did a follow up speech with his own personal investigation the following day, putting all of the heat back on himself. Kraft did his speech today taking almost all of the pressure off Belichick.
Where is your source that says it was in less than 90 seconds?
