Charles Haley has five Super Bowl rings, more than anyone else, acquired during a Hall of Fame career with the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers. So, when Haley speaks, people listen.
A lot of people paid attention when Haley, with no reservations, ripped Tom Brady after “DeflateGate,” even after Brady’s New England Patriots won the Super Bowl and he was named MVP.
Haley told the Talk of Fame Network: “I’ve lost all respect [for Brady]. When your integrity is challenged in the game of football, to me, all his Super Bowls are tainted.”
Brady won four times after last weekend’s 28-24 improbable victory over the Seattle Seahawks, saved by the controversial pass play call by coach Pete Carroll that resulted in a Malcolm Butler interception.
Haley was not done.
“You have to say this just didn’t happen overnight,” he said. “Who wants that shadow over them? I could be wrong. But I realize there were 12 balls deflated and 12 ain’t. Then you’ve got [Patriots coach Bill] Belichick coming on three different times trying to explain it. . .You know something is wrong.”
Haley, who was inducted into the Hall last week, was asked to compare Brady to Joe Montana, the 49er great QB
“Joe didn’t have to cheat,” Haley said. “This is what Charles Haley believes—it’s going to come back to haunt (Brady) one day. If the league doesn’t come down on this guy. . . Everybody is talking about it. Nobody believes it was by accident. It is what it is.
“I’m not going to take any of his Super Bowl rings away from him. But it’s sad that it has to be tainted like it is right now. Hopefully they’ll come out and let us know what really happened. Then all the mystery is gone.”

F**K this stupid story, why don't you mention that Joe Montanas number one receiver cheated throughout his whole career or mention that there is no evidence that NE cheated. Actually, if you look at the facts, common sense would say that the Colts deflated the only ball that was found to be noticeably under-inflated. You're a hack journalist who omits facts to tell your version of a story.
Hey just move along hater nothing is here for you except the hard-facts of truth. Anyway, old Pete Carroll, he 'got a win for the gipper' know what I mean?
Hey, Charlie, how many fouls did you amass throughout that so-called "illustrious" career of yours? Any defensive holding penalties? How 'bout pass interference penalties? That's known as CHEATING, Charlie! So, how many regular season wins did you CHEAT your way to? How many playoff wins did you CHEAT your way to? How many Super Bowl wins did you CHEAT your way to? How many wins overall did your CHEATING influence the outcome of? All of a sudden that "illustrious" career of yours ain't looking so "lustrous"! Get a life you stinking hypocrite!
Holding and pass interference penalities is NOT cheating in a context of the cheat the Patriots are doing. Spygate 2007, who is to say that Spygate was not in place in 2000 when BeenknowntoCheat Belichick took over the HC position. Lets see he took over in 2000, won SBs 2002, 2004 & 2005 GOT CAUGHT CHEATING 2007, did not win other SB until now, and who is to say that SPYGATE 2014 has not resurfaced. All it takes is ONE pissed off player and asst coach and *s will to placed by all SB wins, including this ONE. But we all know that this will NOT happen as long as Roger "pay under the table" Goodell is running the show, WHY? Prior to 2013 Goodell salary was $20 Mil a year, thanks to Robert " master of the CHEAT GAME" Krantz played a major role in Under the table Goodell receiving $300 Mil annually: http://www.dailynews724.com/sports/robert-kraft-behind-roger-goodells-300m-salary-report-h380235.html Sounds like the fix was on from the on set. Follow the money and you find out who the REAL CHEATER ARE, Sh…. rounds down hill.
