Nothing says “I support my team no matter what” like walking out of their game, for the sole purpose of beating traffic to get home and watch other teams play. Such is the though process of New England Patriots fans, many of whom decided they had seen enough of their team’s beat down of the Cincinnati Bengals before the game had even finished, and left their team to fight on without their support. Tom Brady will not tolerate this kind of behavior, so he did the one thing he knew would piss off New Englanders more than anything else. He likened them to Jets fans.
“The road environment is very different than our friendly home crowd, who when I looked up, half the stadium was gone when we were up 21 points early fourth quarter, which I wasn’t so happy about,” Brady said. “I don’t think the Jets fans leave early. They’re going to be loud the whole game. Communication is always an issue.
“We work on it a lot in practice, I think we worked on it in training camp quite a bit. Last year we didn’t do a very good job of it and that was painfully obvious to all of us. We have to do a better job of it this year.” –Boston Herald
Before you getting all of your “er”s and “ahh”s in a bunch, New England, remember that this is the man that built your franchise from mediocrity to a dynastic status in four seasons. All he wants is for you to stay for the entirety of the game. Is that too much to ask? Aren’t football tickets expensive enough? You’ve become spoiled by years of success and media love. Your team is one hit to Tom Brady’s knee from going back into the AFC basement, so you think you’d want enjoy his services while they’re available. But please, Bill, continue to whine about Lakers fans having to beat traffic to get to their games, and their hot girlfriends with awesome racks.
