(CNN) — New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft said Tuesday that he will not appeal the punishment handed down to him by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell over the controversy known as “Deflategate.”

Speaking at the NFL owner’s meetings in San Francisco, Kraft said that while he disagrees with Goodell’s decision to fine the team $1 million and strip them of future draft picks, he no longer wants to “continue the rhetoric” that has lingered over the topic for months.

Kraft’s decision to not appeal the sanction against his team “will not impact the NFLPA appeal of the 4-game suspension of Tom Brady,” said George Atallah, a player’s union executive.

    He did not appeal because he knows they cheated. This is not the first situation if this kind for this team. They cheated, they knew it and they deserve a more severe punishment.
