Tom Brady spoke to the media today, denying having any knowledge of what happened to the footballs. He did, however, acknowledge that he was the one–about five hours before halftime–that went in and selected the balls that would be used.
“I get here, I go in there and I choose how many balls are necessary for the game. When I felt them, they were perfect, I wouldn’t want anyone to touch them.”
However–and easily the most head-scratching thing here–Brady said that NFL investigators haven’t talked to him. Four days later, the guy who it would have been fairly easy to determine was the one who originally selected the balls now at issue. Colonel Klink would be proud of that investigative technique.
