Bob Kravitz on D&C: Tom Brady has ‘acted like a guilty person’ 08.13.15 at 10:20 am ET

Columnist Bob Kravitz of WTHR-TV in Indianapolis, the writer who broke the Deflategate story, checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show on Thursday to discuss the latest in the case after it was heard before Judge Richard Berman in New York on Wednesday. To hear the interview, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

Kravitz was surprised the public portion of the meeting Wednesday centered so much around the Wells Report.

“It’s hard to read where this judge is headed because I really thought this was going to be a process oriented hearing and instead they seemed at least based on the first meeting, they seemed to be revisiting the whole Wells Report, which really isn’t what he was charged to do,” he said. “He’s got the right to do that certainly. He may come out next Wednesday if they don’t reach a settlement and come hard after the NFLPA and [Tom] Brady. You just don’t know. He’s playing devils advocate.”

Looking at the Wells Report, Kravitz feels it didn’t do a good enough job of connecting the deflated footballs to Tom Brady, but did say the quarterback is acting like he’s guilty.

“I do think the Wells Report, if you look at it closely, I think it did a really good job of establishing the balls were deflated, that human tampering was involved,” he said. “I think where they came up short was in their effort to pin it on Brady. I think that there is some evidence. I think he’s acted like a guilty person, but I don’t know that there’s been a preponderance of evidence. That’s what is required in a situation like this.”

“If he had come out early and said, ‘Look, we weren’t trying to do any funny business, it kind of happened that way. We made it low. Maybe we stepped over the line a little bit, it was not intentional. My bad. It won’t happen again.’ I think this thing would have been over in about 10 minutes,” he added. “I really do.”

In the end, he predicts Brady will end up taking a one or two game suspension with no admission of guilt, but accepting a suspension for a lack of cooperation.

“If I was Brady I would probably disincline to accept much of anything, but I think his lawyers have to be smart and understand the NFL is pretty dug in and the NFL needs to save face … ,” Kravitz said. “I personally think in the end one or two games, no admission of guilt and those one or two games would be for a perceived lack of corporation.”
