Thomas, Thomas, Thomas!

You know Tom Brady’s last name is apt because he’s the cherished primadonna of the Patriots just as Marsha Brady was to Tom and Carol. The man is guilty beyond the shadow of a doubt that he was, at least, knowledgeable of the under-inflated footballs. He won’t admit to it because he’s Tom Brady, the man that can do nothing wrong. The only other people completely diluted other than himself are the New England fans, while the rest of us, living in the real world, know the man is guilty.

Soapbox: There's No Crying In Football!!!

I love how Greg Lloyd put it (regarding Football): “It’s a violent freaking sport!” I don’t understand what it is with players these days demanding changes to the game because of the injuries. It’s almost as if players these days are shocked that there are so many injuries in football. HELLO!!! McFLY!!!!! Who ever said football was a safe sport??!! They knew what they were getting into when they signed those contracts. These players are paid ridiculous sums of money so I’m sure excellent doctor’s are well within their budget. Do any of these players remember the great players before them?? How many games did [… Click to Continue …]
