you are a puppet: Because he's a good looking millionaire married to a supermodel who happens to win a lot of football games, and you're a fat complainer living in a rathole who has never banged anything hot and has only ever won the my little pony jpeg posting contest?


I never won a jpeg contest.

robertus: I don't have anything against "Tom Brady," I have everything against "Wildly Successful Quarterback of a Team Against Which I Root." If he'd been the playboy quarterback of the Giants or Ravens, I'd be over the moon with him.



THIS.

I despise Brady because he's a Patriot.  That's bred into me from a)being born in Chicago in the 70s and having vivid memories of Superbowl XX, and b)living in Cambridge, MA long enough to observe Pats fans in the wild.  fark the Patriots.

It's always bothered me that the media likes to run with the narrative of "People hate Tom Brady because he married a supermodel."  Why? Is the guy happy? Is she happy? Who the hell cares?  Why do we care about this? What the hell does that have to do with football?

If reporters ask her opinion of a game, that's on them.  Don't like her answer? You asked.

Now Philip Rivers.

That's a qb you can despise regardless of team.

Mikey1969: Pants_Optional: Mikey1969: It's because he's a whiny prima donna who gets the satin glove treatment from the refs.

As a non-Pats fan from/living in New England, this is pretty much it.  Well that and Pats fans are the worst.

Luckily, I looked at my post before adding it... I had him down as getting "satin LOVE" treatment.



Still applicable.

Bane of Broone: The Googles Do Nothing: Superb Owls?

Another 4chan meme that made its way to Fark.


It's not a 4chan meme.  It originated because the NFL were being dicks and enforcing their trademark of the word "Super Bowl" on small things.  For example if you said "Our Baking Club is having a Super Bowl Party" and advertised it online, the NFL would come in and say "You can't call it any organized event a Super Bowl Party".

So it's more of a "fark you" to the NFL and their draconian copyright enforcement than anything.

I used to work at a radio station in Honolulu. Was on sidelines and in locker room for interviews at the Pro Bowl every year. Tom Brady is an arrogant prick. Rude and dismissive. Other star QBs, notably Peyton Manning, were quite the opposite, very nice and gracious.
In fact, the only other negative experience I had with any player was Warren Sapp

I have always hated Brady,not because of success, but because he is, in fact, an asshole.

Unless Namath got coddled by the league and was allowed to play under a different set of rules than 90% of QBs, I don't think he understands the hatred for Brady.

Carson Palmer's knee is shredded. Unfortunate, but that happens sometimes in football.

Brady's knee is shredded. We must change the rules so this never happens again!

Roethlisberger's nose gets broken by a forearm shiver. Great play by Ngata.

Brady's helmet gets the slightest graze. Personal foul, roughing the passer, 15 yard penalty, automatic first down.

Slam Bradley: Transpogue: I despise Brady because he's a Patriot. That's bred into me from a)being born in Chicago in the 70s and having vivid memories of Superbowl XX, and b)living in Cambridge, MA long enough to observe Pats fans in the wild. fark the Patriots.

I can understand your B reason (although its the same for every fan group if you live near young college aged fans of any team), but how can you hate the Pats from SB XX?  One of the most lopsided Superb Owls ever, and they even released a smack talking song the same year they demolished their way through the league.  I guess you could hate them for not letting Payton score a TD, but you should blame Ditka more for that

/Pats fan


The *charm* of a Bears fan is that we will talk about that game like it happened last year.  We all know- we really do- that it happened almost thirty years ago and also know the many, many flaws of Ditka, but they were exacerbated by how Buddy ran the defense.  But that's a whole other story...

My encounters with Pats fans were beyond the college kids-- it was also the grown adults- both white and blue collar.  But again, it's through the eyes of Bears fan, and we're just brought up to despise the Patriots.  We also don't get how an entire segment of the country gets a team.  That's like having the Midwest Bears.  Doesn't compute.

But I'm rambling now, because my coffee hasn't kicked in yet...

At the end of the day, I love the game, and enjoy despising other teams for no real football reason, because FOOTBALL.

aintnuttintofarkwith: Because he's living every man's fantasy?


[i47.tinypic.com image 555x385]


This. I posit that after his disappointing sixth-round selection and playing behind Bledsoe he went into a private room made a deal with Satan (I picture a long-fingernailed Willem Dafoe after the recent commercials) to crank up his career. Which of course included Bledsoe's injury, the improbable Super Bowl win over the Rams, a series of hot actresses/models, endorsements and continued success. The movie montage sequence pretty much writes itself.

And it's pretty evident he pissed off Satan on week 1 of 2008. Maybe Tom got a little too full of himself(?).
