Robert Kraft met the guy responsible for getting his quarterback back on the field.
The New England Patriots owner spent some time with U.S. District Court Judge Richard Berman, who vacated Tom Brady’s four-game suspension, this weekend at a party at Discovery Communications chief David Zaslav’s house in the Hamptons. New York Giants co-owner Jon Tisch and New York Knicks owner James Dolan also were in attendance.
While some fans and media members from rival cities found the meeting between Kraft and Berman a little fishy, a Patriots representative told the New York Post’s “Page Six” that it was just a coincidence the two met at the star-studded affair.
“It was a chance encounter at a social event with hundreds of guests,” the rep said. “There was a brief introduction and an exchange of pleasantries that lasted no more than a couple of minutes.”
Either way, Kraft and Berman running into each other after the decision means nothing. It would only be a problem if the trial was still going on.
