Right, right. Don't let me catch you with a Brady jersey on, mate. You are a Connecticut man, after all.
I would ask Markus to help me look through the archives to find these posts but it doesn't matter. Although, I believe the " spirit " of one of your posts was something to the effect of Brady being the " Best " player on a team unworthy of him. ( That would include the coach, btw. ) All in all, my friend. You think he currently is cheating, yea?... I think that is highly unlikely. But, if you can prove it then I will buy you 2 rounds of beer when I visit Colorado instead of 1. Jim can be the mature one and shake his head at our seemingly juvenile bets.
Food for thought, Bob. Brady might have another career season and win the MVP. Rps. Maize and Blue, through and through. ( There is talk and then there is action. Don't be surprised if I pull a sudden Presidential visit on you guys. )
Did you not read my last post? Sheesh! One more time.
I have never praised Brady. Before the cheating came out, I liked Peyton Manning way better than Brady. Still do. I think Manning is way better. If Brady and Coach are still cheating is irrelevant. Same as asking if I think A-Rod is still cheating. It doesn't matter. They cheated, got caught, dirtied the game. A-Rod admitted he took PED's when he got caught. So his records don't really count. They get an asterik. Did you see me post here when A-Rod hit his 600th home run? I didn't say anything because it doesn't mean anything. And he was my favorite player. I really felt badly about the A-Rod PED thing.
And I didn't have an ax to grind about Tom Brady. Since Elway retired I really haven't been much of a football fan. But when spygate came out and Brady dummied up I lost all respect for him. Good lord, they actually used the everybody does it defense.
He never admitted to cheating which makes the actual cheating way worse. He is a scum bag. Like Barry bonds, one of the greatest hitters of all time, and Roger Clemens, one of the greatest pitchers of all time. They both extended their careers by cheating, and will both probably deny it until their last breath. And so will Brady. I loved both of those guys as young players. And neither were Yankees. Well Clemens was later, but I consider him a great Red Sox Player. That's when he was great and hopefully clean. I love watching great players. Red Sox are our arch rivals. But I love Dustin Pedroia. The Yankees have Robinson Cano at second base, a supremely gifted athlete. The book on him before last season though was that he was lazy and had an attitude problem. Pedroia is not at all a supremely gifted athlete, but what he does with the ability that he has is really quite astounding. So I love watching him play. He has a heart bigger than Massachusetts! My favorite baseball player of all time is Mickey Mantle, but Ted Williams, a Red Sox, is on my short list. What I'm saying here is that I'm a big fan of integrity. I'm not partisan about that. If you clicked on the link in my last post and listened to Matt & Trey what they are saying is in alignment with my viewpoint.
I don't have amnesia! For me, spygate never blew over. Hell, Chappaquiddick never blew over for me. I was a big Bobby Kennedy fan. Never felt the same way about Teddy, but I thought, maybe! So he is a catholic cheating on his wife (big sin) gets drunk, drives his car off a bridge, his date drowns, he swims to the mainland, checks into a hotel to sleep off his drunk, doesn't report anything 'til the next morning before he has all of his ducks in a row, to save his political career. The man was pond scum! And guess what. He got away with it. Not only did he not go to jail, but he was relected as MA senator by the brain dead populace of Massachusetts. You can see where I'm going with this.
So I won't, as not to offend our Patriot fan.
Please don't ever mention Tom Brady again, or you will hear from Bobo, and it won't be pretty!
If Tom Brady owns up to the cheating and insists that the 3 Super Bowl wins don't count and neither do any of his records, I will personally congratulate him.
