Tom Brady used an illegal streaming website to watch the Super Bowl last year

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady laughs during a news conference at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., Thursday, Jan. 26, 2012.

Tom Brady may be the biggest sports star in America, but that doesn't mean the NFL will be pleased to hear about his latest confession.

Wait until commissioner Roger Goodell learns how the New England Patriots star quarterback caught Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers winning the Super Bowl in 2011.

At the time recuperating after an injury to his foot, Brady admitted to the press this week that he had watched an illegal stream of the game online.

"Last year, I was rehabbing my foot in Costa Rica watching the game on an illegal Super Bowl website and now I'm actually playing in the game, so it's pretty cool," Brady told MassLive.com.
