Pats won't appeal deflated football sanctions


SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft says he will not appeal the penalties for the team's role in the use of deflated footballs in the AFC championship game. Commissioner Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') fined the Patriots $1 million and took away two draft choices, including a first rounder next year.

Kraft says he was putting the league before his franchise because the agenda of one team should not override the good of all 32.

Kraft's decision will not affect quarterback Tom Brady's appeal of his four game suspension in the case.
