PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Pittsburgh TV news producer who was fired for writing a graphic calling New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady a "known cheater" says he was just trying to have a little fun.

Michael Telek tweeted Wednesday he got fired from KDKA-TV for putting the phrase underneath Brady's name in a news segment.

He says he understands why he was let go, but is a bit worried since he just bought a house.

His friends launched a GoFundMe page to help him out, and he says once he finds a job, he'll donate the money to a charity in Brady's name.

He says he actually thinks Brady is the greatest quarterback ever.

Brady was accused of using underinflated footballs in a 2015 playoff game.
