In a shocking revelation, owner Robert Kraft, billionaire businessman running the New England Patriots, told an assembled media group that he does not take orders from Tom Brady.
Apparently, some fans were operating under the belief system that the owners paid Brady, and he told them what to do. It's not true came the bulletin that Brady does not tell the Kraft family how high to jump.
Now it is clear that the person signing the paycheck is actually calling the shots. Those unaware of the concept of owner will have new information to mull over. Kraft considers himself the boss. The boss has been stung by mounting criticism.
This also means that Tom Brady's complaints or problems with losing Wes Welker have fallen on deaf ears. As if the underscore his failure to comprehend what the loss of Wes Welker means, owner Kraft insisted he had spoken with Brady about the issue-and he heard no complaints.
Mr. Kraft is elderly, and to be kind, he may be hearing challenged.
Kraft told the press that he never discusses budget and finances of his team with the public, and then proceeded to give a detailed explanation of the botch-up in the Welker case.
He blamed the greedy and stupid agents, not his benevolent ownership group.
Kraft also followed in the footsteps of another arrogant billionaire, John W. Henry of the Red Sox. Like Henry, Kraft denigrated a newly signed player, Danny Amendola, referring to him as a second-choice.
Not since Carl Crawford found out he was unloved in Beantown has there been such a declaration of disdain. Well, there has not been a statement of dislike since Wes Welker admitted he had mild disdain for the Patriots.
