>> we today you that patriot head coach belichick would hold a news conference to address the delfate gate. here he is in massachusetts. >> obviously i understand each team has the opportunity to prepare the balls the way they want, give them to the officials and the officials either approve or disapprove the balls. that was the end of it for me. i learned a little bit more about this the last couple of days. let me just say my coaching philosophy has always been to make things as difficult as possible for players in practice so with regard to footballs i am sure that any current or past player of mine will tell you that the balls we
6:41 am
practice with are as bad as they can be. wet. sticky. cold. slippery. however bad we can make 'em i make 'em. when players complain about the quality of the footballs i make them worse. what steps the complaints. we never use the condition of the football as an excuse. we play with whatever or kick with whatever we have to use. that is the way it is. that has never been a priority for me. i want the players to deal with the hardest situation if practice they will have to deal with, in the game. maybe that is part of our ball security philosophy.
6:42 am
i am trying to coach the team. that is what i want to do. we all know that quarterbacks kickers, specialists have certain preferences on footballs. they know a lot more about it than i do. they are more expensive than i am. i hear them comment on it from time to time but i can tell you and they will tell you there is never any sympathy whatever for me on that subject. zero. tom's personal preferences on his footballs are something that he can talk about detail and better information that i could possibly prov to tell you if my entire coaching career i have never talked to any player staff
6:43 am
member about football air pressure. that is not a subject i have ever brought up. to me, the footballs are approved by the league and game officials pre-game and we play with what's out there. that is the only way i have ever thought about that. i have learned about the inflation range and situation obviously with our footballs being inflated to the 12.5-pound range any us under that limit. knowing that now
6:44 am
we will deflate them above that low level to account for any possible change here in the game. as an average in a ball deflated from the 13 to the 12.9 it would matter but if it delfated from 12.5 to 12.3 it would matter but 12.9 would not matter. that is an example. we will take steps in the future to make sure we do not put ourselves in that type of potential situation the national football league is investigating this situation. we have cooperated fully, quickly and completely with every request they have made.
6:45 am
we continue to be cooperative in anyway we can. i have no explanation for what happened. that is what they are looking into. i cannot comment on what they doing that is something you should talk to them about. my overall knowledge, again, of football specifications, the overall process that happens on game day with the footballs is very limited. we will say during the course of the game i honestly probably has happened on an income meat pass or something but i never touch the game ball. that is not something i have any familiarity with on that. again i was completely and totally unaware of anything we
6:46 am
were talking about in the last cull of days this will monday morning. based on what i know or knew on sunday, sunday night, thinking back on this can i have done several times. i cannot think of figure i would have done differently based on what i now then based on what i know now. i told you the one change we would make in the initial start level of the football pressure but that is about it. it is unfortunate this is a story coming off of two great playoff victories by our football team and our players and, again we have been cooperating with the nfl investigation and we will continue to do so and we will turn all our attention and focus on to the seattle seahawks a very well coped -- coached and
