Hundreds of pages of documents have been made public from the NFLPA’s counterclaim against the NFL over Tom Brady’s four-game Deflategate suspension
As Deadspin first pointed out, buried in the massive data dump are a bunch of Tom Brady’s personal emails, which range from banal topics like pool covers and travel arrangements to redacted emails between the New England quarterback and Josh McDaniels, the Patriots’ offensive coordinator. None of the emails appear to be incriminating with respect to deflated footballs.
One of the more entertaining emails, however, comes on the same day that ESPN NFL analyst Mark Brunell nearly cried on live television and called Tom Brady a liar. On January 22, Brunell went on ESPN after Brady’s press conference where he denied any involvement in the scandal. Brunell said, “Somebody had to do it, and I don’t believe there’s an equipment manager in the NFL who on his own initiative would deflate a ball without his starting quarterback’s approval. I just didn’t believe what Tom Brady had to say.”
In a response to an email from former Michigan teammate Patrick Kratus within a few ours of Brunell’s comment, Brady called Brunell a “Patriots hater.”
“He’s a patriot hater. They all are!!!” he wrote.
