Patriots QB Tom Brady refuses comment on domestic violence topic

Tuesday September 16th, 2014

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had nothing to say when asked about the recent rash of domestic violence cases plaguing the NFL. 

During his weekly radio appearance on WEEI in Boston, Brady did not want to have anything to do with commenting about the problems of other players. Instead, he said he was focused on trying to represent the Patriots and making the right decisions off the field.

“I try to stay in my lane. All of those things, none of it’s really my business or my control,” Brady said, according to the Providence Journal. “I’ve just been focusing on the games and what I can do better. The things that are taking place on other teams or league-wide decisions, those are a different pay grade than me.”When pressed further, Brady again said it wasn’t his responsibility to be a spokesman for the league on those matters. 

“The owners of the league, the commissioner of the league, the teams themselves, the players that are involved, they’re the ones that are speaking on it," Brady said.
