Tom Brady condemned the domestic abuse scandal surrounding New York Giants kicker Josh Brown, but stopped short of comparing Brown's one-game suspension to his own four-game penalty for Deflategate.

In a Monday interview with WEEI's Kirk and Callahan Show, the superstar New England Patriots quarterback wouldn't call bullshit on the fact that he was suspended for four games, while an admitted wife beater only got sidelined for one, after he was asked if that was unfair:

 “I think it is the league’s issue,” Brady said. “Obviously, there is a lot of controversy with that. I’m trying to stay out of all that. I will let them handle it. I think that is their responsibility.

"Obviously, there is a lot of controversy with that. I’m trying to stay out of all that. I will let them handle it. I think that is their responsibility. I certainly don’t condone any part of domestic violence. I think it is a terrible, terrible thing. I think the league, they have to handle those types of things.’

"I'm just going to stay in my lane. Like I said, it’s up to them to decide whatever they want to do. I’m just going to try try and stay out of any kind of my opinion. I certainly have opinions, I just don’t really care to share them.”

While Brady was clearly careful not to throw any bombs at his NFL overlords, he was clearly not happy with Brown. Though perhaps not as angry as Baltimore Ravens receiver Steve Smith, who recently threatened Brown with bodily harm.
