What a surprise! ESPN has once again taken on their favorite target with an explosive 'exposè' piece on the New England Patriots.

According to ESPN, there has been turmoil between Robert Kraft, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. The piece states that these tensions could mean the end of the three of them working together.

However, the team's owner, head coach and QB have now responded in an unprecedented joint statement.

The three of them have come out claiming the reports are "unsubstantiated, highly exaggerated or flat out inaccurate."

Bottom line, they "stand united."
