Carson Palmer on Tom Brady: ‘When You Get Busted, You Suffer The Consequences’

Denver Broncos v Arizona Cardinals

Well, isn’t this just perfect timing.

On Wednesday, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was on a conference call with New England media, ahead of the Cardinals-Patriots Sunday night match-up, and he had some choice words when asked about suspended New England QB Tom Brady.

The questions were in regards to how he felt about Tom Brady and the way things played out for him during the league’s investigation into deflategate, which began after the 2015 AFC Title game against the Indianapolis Colts.

“I tried not to follow it just because it was everywhere for so long but I go back and … you follow what the rule book says and go about your business and your work and if they tell you not to do it and you get busted and what happens happens then you suffer the consequences,” Palmer said, via Tom Curran of CSN New England.

“A lot of players around the league just looking at it, I don’t know if you can feel too strongly about it one way or the other.” 

“To be honest … there was … supposedly the balls went somewhere and they weren’t supposed to go there,” Palmer said. “There was humidity and not enough humidity and whatever it was and altitude. I don’t really know. I didn’t follow the story. As soon as it came on I just turned it off because I was so sick of hearing about it. Whatever the league comes down upon and whatever ruling they make is what they make. You don’t have much of a decision after that and you can fight it for a little bit but after a while, you just gotta abide by what they say.”

The Cardinals and the Patriots face off on Sunday night at University of Phoenix Stadium. Brady, of course, won’t be playing.
