New England Patriots QB Tom Brady Not Watching Super Bowl is Irrelevant
For the second straight season the New England Patriots came one win shy of going to the Super Bowl, losing 26-16 on Sunday to the Denver Broncos. Tom Brady said the following in part to the Boston Herald:
“I don’t have much of a rooting interest, truthfully. Those games are hard to watch. I don’t see myself sitting down to enjoy a football game or watch it. Our season is over. Truthfully, I could case less about watching a game. That’s pretty much how I feel.”
I know a lot of Brady bashing is taking place after those comments. Some are going after the fact that he is a spokesman for Uggs — I’m not sure how that’s relevant, but whatever. Some are bringing up Spygate, but they are forgetting three very important facts.
1. The Patriots, Bill Belichick and Brady have accomplished a lot in the NFL without the help of Spygate.
2. Just about every team in the NFL has at the very least stretched the rules if not broken them in an effort to win.
3. The recording the Patriots did during Spygate didn’t really help them all that much.
Look, I get that some people don’t like Brady and try to tear him down anytime they can, but how is this a huge story? Does it really matter if Brady watches the Super Bowl or not? I’m a diehard Patriots fan and I don’t care if Brady watches the Super Bowl. I just want him ready to go next season. I don’t care what his plans are on Feb. 2, 2014. Brady was asked a question, and he responded honestly. If I was in Brady’s shoes I don’t know if I could skip the Super Bowl, but I get it. After the Patriots lost on Sunday I struggled with whether or not to watch the NFC Championship game. I ultimately watched it because I love football and I knew that was the second to last game of the season, but I understand Brady not watching the Super Bowl.
What I don’t understand is why people care.
