What a year it has been for the Patriots and their fan base. Over 365 days ago allegations were made against Tom Brady and the Patriots right before the Super Bowl. And a couple weeks later, Roger Goodell had to hand over the Lombardi Trophy to Tom Brady.
That’s where the fun began. A summer full of testimony, interviews, questions, ridicule and a dragging through the mud by the league and media. What did it mean for Tom Brady and his popularity? Not a damn thing.
Dick’s Sporting Goods has released the numbers on their jersey sales from 2015 and look who topped the list. None other than Tom Brady. You know why jersey sales didn’t stumble? Because everyone knows that the league is run by incompetent fools. The only people that care about deflate gate are fans of teams that have met their demise at the hands of Tom Brady, and that is certainly a lot of them.
So from a non Patriot fan, I get it. You’re bitter, you’re sour and you’re pretty butt hurt. But in the long run, it really doesn’t matter what you think. Year in and year out, Brady gives it his all. He is the hardest working player in the league. What is Brady doing right now at 9AM on February 17th? He’s most likely in a weight room training or studying film. Because he DOES. NOT. STOP. And when he gets home from the gym, he’s going to eat a plate full of rabbit food, then probably wash it down with some avocado ice cream. What is Andrew Luck doing right now? Probably trying to line up some gigs for commercials or sitting at some buffet right now.
It’s an awesome feeling knowing that all your QB wants to do is win.
Gronk at #3, way to go big man…
