The NFL Posted Then Deleted This Tweet That Curiously Excluded Tom Brady

We’ve now reached the Mean Girls portion of the fight between Tom Brady and the NFL.

On Sunday evening, the league posted this tweet about Super Bowl 50 featuring some of the game’s best quarterbacks. Past Super Bowl winners like Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Aaron Rodgers are included. So, too, are Drew Brees and Russell Wilson. But man, there seems to be someone missing. Someone who’s won multiple Super Bowls. And that person is…

Eli Manning.

Nah, just kidding. Everyone’s making a stink because Tom Brady was curiously left off the tweet. Hmm, I wonder why. Moreover, why is Carson Palmer here? Who invited Carson Palmer, guys?

This response from one fan kinda sums up the ridiculousness of the whole thing.

I’m not sure whose face is being referenced here. Is it the NFL or specifically Roger Goodell? I’d like to think it’s Goodell because that fits the deez nuts narrative a lot better.

But I digress.

The NFL is awaiting word on an appeal filed in 2nd Circuit Court following the nullified suspension. Tom Brady appears to be safe for now and will play Thursday against the Steelers. This whole things remains very, very stupid.
