Patriots owner Robert Kraft calls NFL's Brady decision 'unfathomable'

baltimoresun.com — In the wake of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell upholding his four-game suspension of New England's Tom Brady, the Patriots opened training camp Wednesday with a Bill Belichick news conference. Predictably, the comments from the coach were comically unrevealing and spoken in that familiar monotone.

ON THE NFL: Jen Welter is a breakthrough performer

@STLNFLCHIRAID @chicago_STL @RandyKarraker that's always been the reality of moving back to LA, where there's zilch for public money.

@pcjansen @chicards80 @RandyKarraker In every other scenario I can recall, owners have said "I want a new stadium."

Jul 29, 2015

@pcjansen @chicards80 @RandyKarraker Yes, this situation is unique in that SK, to best of my knowledge, hasn't asked for new stadium.

Jul 29, 2015

@pcjansen @chicards80 @RandyKarraker Now that would definitely set an unsustainable precedent. What happens when next owner wants to leave?

Jul 29, 2015

@chicards80 @RandyKarraker Yes, but that assumes an apples-to-apples market comparison.

Jul 29, 2015

@chicards80 @RandyKarraker If the Rams were solved, and stayed put, I don't think we'd see the urgency from SD, mostly, and Oakland.

Jul 29, 2015

@chicards80 @RandyKarraker That's the big question that I'm not sure anyone has untangled, because the Rams are linchpin to entire situation
