NFL releases the Deflate Gate report in it’s entirety

**Below is a full transcript of the NFL interview with New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. Warning some of the language may be graphic in nature.**

Ted Wells: Tom Brady ordered the deflated footballs because that’s what you told him to do!

Robert Kraft: Object!

Judge Roger Goodell: Sustained!

Wells: And when it went bad, you cut those guys loose!

Kraft: Your honor!

Wells: You doctored the log book!…

Kraft: Da-n it, Ted!

Goodell: Consider yourself in contempt!

Wells: Bill Belichick, did you order the deflated footballs?

Goodell: You don’t have to answer that question!

Head coach Bill Belichick: I’ll answer the question!

[to Wells]

Belichick: You want answers?

Wells: I think I’m entitled to them.

Belichick: You want answers?

Wells: I want the truth!

Belichick: You can’t handle the truth!

[pauses]

Belichick: Son, we live in a world that has balls, and those balls have to be guarded by men with needles. Who’s gonna do it? You? You, Coach Pagano? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for the Ravens, and you curse the Patriots. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That the Colt’s loss, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that ball, you need me on that ball. We use words like deflation, spying, atmospheric conditions. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a needle, and stand a post. Either way, I don’t give a damn what you think you are entitled to.

Wells: Did you order the balls be deflated?

Belichick: I did the job I…

Wells: Did you order the balls be deflated?

Belichick: You’re god–mn right I did!
