SALEM, Mass. (AP) — New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says the scandal surrounding his use of deflated footballs during the NFL playoffs last season hasn’t detracted in any way from his Super Bowl title.

Brady declined to discuss his thoughts Thursday night about the NFL’s findings that he was at least aware two team employees were breaking rules by deflating footballs for him.

Brady’s comments were his first since a 243-page NFL report found some of his claims were implausible in explaining why balls were underinflated during the playoffs last season.

The superstar quarterback spoke at a Q&A session moderated by sportscaster Jim Gray during a previously scheduled event at Salem State University.

    Both JWR lLittle League and the N.E. Patriots cheated ! The difference being the Patriots could have won without cheating, the same could not have been said aboout JRW . And both teams were rewarded well for their deciet.
