Kraft upset by Wells report, Patriots' punishment

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft broke his silence on the Wells report, expressing his frustration with commissioner Roger Goodell and executive Troy Vincent suspending Tom Brady for four games and docking the Patriots first-round and fourth-round draft picks and fining them $1 million. Kraft is weighing his options. He could appeal, or file a lawsuit. "This whole thing has been very disturbing," Kraft told Sports Illustrated. "I'm still thinking things out very carefully. But when you work for something your whole life . I just get really worked up. To receive the harshest penalty in league history is just not fair. The anger and frustration with this process, to me, it wasn't fair. If we're giving all the power to the NFL and the office of the commissioner, this is something that can happen to all 32 teams. "We need to have fair and balanced investigating and reporting. But in this report, every inference went against us inferences from ambiguous, circumstantial evidence all went against us. That's the thing that really bothers me. If they want to penalize us because there's an aroma around this? That's what this feels like. If you don't have the so-called smoking gun, it really is frustrating. And they don't have it. This thing never should have risen to this level."
