Brett Favre: 'I Don't Think Tom Brady Cheated'
Tom Brady is planning to appeal the NFL's decision to suspend him for the first four games of the next season over his role in the "Deflate-Gate" scandal.
An investigation commissioned by the league found that the Super Bowl MVP played a role in the intentional deflation of game balls, "a move that experts say could have given Brady an advantage in the New England Patriots’ AFC championship victory over the Indianapolis Colts," the Associated Press reported.
The league also fined the New England Patriots $1 million and forced the team to forfeit a 2016 first rounder and 2017 fourth-round selection in the NFL Draft.
Former NFL quarterback Brett Favre told Greta Van Susteren tonight that he hasn't paid a lot of attention to the controversy surrounding Brady.
Favre said that "he doesn't think...Tom was cheating."
He explained that a number of former NFL players have done questionable things to try and win games.
Favre remarked that this is the first time he has ever heard of an NFL team deflating footballs.
"At the time when it all came out...it was somewhat laughable at first that we were even talking about that," Favre said. "Especially considering the magnitude of the game that was upcoming."
Favre said that in certain weather conditions, playing with a deflated football may have helped Brady to have a better grip on the ball.
He said that despite the scandal, Brady "is if not the best, one of the best all time" quarterbacks.
"I think what the guy has done is incredible," Favre stated.
