BOSTON (CBS) – Tom Brady’s dad is coming to his son’s defense and giving NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell a piece of his mind ahead of the Super Bowl.

“He went on a witch hunt and went in way over his head and had to lie his way out in numerous ways and the reality is that Tommy never got suspended for deflating footballs,” Brady Sr. said.

“He got suspended because the court said that he could, Roger Goodell could do anything that he wanted to do to any player for any reason whatsoever. That’s what happened. The NFL admitted they had no evidence on him.”
