Robert Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, recently said he is trying to end the debate over Deflate-Gate.
"I don't think anyone can believe that after four months of the AFC Championship game, we are still talking about air pressure and the PSI in footballs," Kraft said.
His tactic to end the debate, he says, is to "reluctantly" accept the team's punishment. It includes a $1 million fine by the NFL and the loss of two draft picks.
ESPN Boston writer Mike Reiss, who is in California for the NFL Owners Meeting, joins Morning Edition to talk about what this means.
