New England Patriots Owner Robert Kraft Calls Out Those Who Call Pat’s Cheaters
NYDN – If you’re a Patriots fan, you’ll love it. And if you can’t stand New England’s scandal-plagued football dynasty, you might relish hearing Robert Kraft call you what you are: One of the “haters.” Kraft, the outspoken Patriots owner who stuck it to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell after his team’s incredible Super Bowl LI comeback win on Feb. 5, is the subject of an HBO Real Sports profile that aired Tuesday night. … “What do you say to the critics who label the Patriots as cheaters?” Kremer asks. Envy and jealousy are incurable diseases,” Kraft responds. “The haters still hate. And I understand it, and we’ll do our best to keep them in that position.” … Kraft threw a dig at Goodell on stage holding the Lombardi Trophy in Houston after Brady engineered the comeback for his fifth career championship. He tells Kremer why: “I go back to my dad and he said, ‘The most important thing you can earn in life is a good name.’ … That is impacting our good name or our reputation. And it wasn’t something that I appreciated.” … “And then the President invites you to dinner with the Prime Minister (of Japan),” Kraft adds.
At this point Robert Kraft can point to his Lombardi Trophy’s and tell the rest of the league to go screw. His quotes from this interview are gold, he is essentially bragging the entire time while also trying to do it in the most humble way.
Patriots fans remember when the team was in the dumpster of the league and under the Kraft families leadership they have built two dynasties in their ownership, a feat you will likely never see again in sports.
