What I learned from Tom Brady’s ball blues

Tom Brady, when questioned by Bob Costas in an interview before the Super Bowl about his knowledge of deflated balls had three choices.

  1. Admit wrong-doing, but downplay the issue.
  2. Deny any knowledge or involvement (flat-out lie).
  3. Side-step the question and not really answer at all.

Choice one would have been best, obviously.

Choice three, you’re not a liar. But is it better than entering your actions boldly (choice two)?

Seems that honesty, forthrightness, and issue mitigation is the right move if you’re caught red-handed. That, and ultimately 100% ownership of your mistake.
