Brown was suspended only one game to start the season, but then more information came out this past week, which forced the NFL to place Brown on the commissioner's exempt list. Brown didn't travel to London over the weekend for the Giants game against the Rams. On his weekly appearance with Kirk & Callahan on Monday morning, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was asked a few questions about Brown's situation and domestic violence. The quarterback took a hard stance against the issue. "I grew up with three sisters, I was very fortunate to learn from a loving father and a loving mother how to treat and respect women," Brady said. "I have a daughter of my own and domestic violence is a horrible issue. It's a tragedy when it happens. Any type of abuse or bullying of people who can't defend or fight for themselves, I have no respect for that. Like I said, the NFL, they claim to take tough stances and this is their situation. This is their situation to deal with. I'll let them deal with it. Like I said, I was very fortunate to grow up with sisters, a mother -- I condone no part of that. That is absolutely something I would never be apart of or do. It's a terrible tragedy." Brady was also asked if it's frustrating that Brown only received a one-game suspension and he received a four-game suspension for being "generally aware" of deflated footballs in the AFC title game in 2014. "I think it is the league's issue," Brady said. "Obviously, there is a lot of controversy with that. I'm trying to stay out of all that. I will let them handle it. I think that is their responsibility. I certainly don't condone any part of domestic violence. I think it is a terrible, terrible thing. I think the league, they have to handle those types of things." Added Brady: "I'm just going to stay in my lane. Like I said, it's up to them to decide whatever they want to do. I'm just going to try try and stay out of any kind of my opinion. I certainly have opinions, I just don't really care to share them."
