Last season, the New England Patriots’ three main men – owner Robert Kraft, head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady – were reportedly fighting over who would get the credit for the team’s success. Also, there were reports about discord between Brady and Belichick after the head coach stripped the quarterback’s trainer/personal friend Alex Guerrero of some team privileges.

Thereafter, the trio released a joint statement and showed a united front to debunk the reported rift. Despite their effort to paint a pretty picture, the reported discord between the three remained.

Amid all the controversy, the Patriots still made it to Super Bowl LII, where they lost to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Book reveals Brady’s frustration with Patriots

While it looks like everything’s okay in Foxborough for training camp, another controversy might hound the Patriots anew with the release of an upcoming Book entitled “12: The Inside Story of Tom Brady’s Season of Redemption.” Written by Casey Sherman and David Wedge, the book reveals that Brady was frustrated with Kraft for the way the organization handled Deflategate in 2015.

While Brady fought the four-game suspension that the NFL imposed on him in connection with the use of deflated footballs, the Patriots gave up easily when it came to fighting the charges.

Kraft, in a press conference, announced that the team would accept the punishment of a $1 million fine and the taking away of two draft picks.

Based on the excerpts posted by The Athletic, per, Brady was frustrated and angered by Kraft’s decision to give up the fight. After watching Kraft’s press conference on television, Brady called DeMaurice Smith, executive director of the National Football League Players Association, and asked him: “Why am I not getting the support I deserve on this thing?” Earlier, Belichick left Brady hanging, telling the media to ask the quarterback how he prepares the football.

Brady fought NFL decision

Brady and the NFLPA tried to fight the four-game suspension in court. Ultimately, Brady decided to give up the fight and accept the punishment. After missing four games, Brady led the Patriots to an 11-1 mark and helped them finish the regular season with a league-best 14-2 record.

Brady finished the regular season with 3,554 yards and 28 touchdowns with just two interceptions. In the playoffs, Brady stepped up his game, leading the Patriots to their fifth Super Bowl title by beating the Atlanta Falcons in overtime (34-28).
