FOXBOROUGH, MA (WHDH) - With the National Football League under fire for perceived lack of toughness on domestic violence issues, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady weighed in on the matter on Monday.
Brady was asked how he felt about the light suspension of Giants kicker Josh Brown (one game) versus his four-game suspension for deflated footballs.
Brady didn’t answer the question, but did offer his thoughts about the league’s stance on domestic violence in his weekly radio interview with WEEI.
“Any type of abuse or bullying of people who can’t defend or fight for themselves, I have no respect for that,” he said. “Like I said, the NFL, they claim to take tough stances and this is their situation. This is their situation to deal with. I’ll let them deal with it.”
“That is absolutely something I would never be apart of or do,” Brady added. “It’s a terrible tragedy.”
