NewWorldDan: I don't think Joe quite gets it. Manning and Brady are the two greatest quarterbacks of their generation, and probably all time, and they couldn't be more unlike each other. When you watch Manning play, it's technical, orchestrated, complex, and hard. Brady makes it look easy. And that drives a lot of people crazy. You look at the way most QBs struggle, the way everything in your own life is hard, and then here's this pretty boy who makes the most important position in football look easy. Manning doesn't get anywhere near that level of hate. Despite being a legacy, he looks like the hardest working, most devoted guy who ever took a snap.
Transpogue: Bottom line...I don't like Brady because a)He's a Patriot and Bears fans don't like the Patriots, and b)Patriots' fans are a bit insufferable. I'll add to that c) Brady is a bit of a prima donna.
Mikey1969: It's because he's a whiny prima donna who gets the satin glove treatment from the refs.
coolio mack: Dr Dreidel: No Soap Radio: People hate him, at least in part, because he is not the stereotypical aggressive "tough guy" football player, though it certainly seems he's as tough and competitive as anyone else. The incongruity gives people fits. Not to mention he's playing in the same era as Peyton Manning, who at least maintains a somewhat hokey everyman doofus-y persona.Last night, my roommate and I were discussing Philip Rivers. I FARKING HATE PHILIP RIVERS WITH A WHITE-HOT PASSION, but with Brady it's just sort of "Eh. Haters gonna hate."Because Brady is hyper-competitive, but it shows mostly when he talks to teammates. Rivers is also hyper-competitive, but it shows in his jawing at the opposite sideline. I don't recall much of Brady shiat-talking the other squad.He's had his moments when he's been prodded. Both him and Belichick clowned Anthony Smith of the Steelers a few years back when he guaranteed a win against them. He also went in on Suggs a few years back.Brady is one of my favorite athletes of all time. His competitiveness and the way he strives to get better is at a Michael Jordan/Kobe Bryant type level.
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
Pentaxian: Something I find amusing is the creepy man-crush Bostonians have on him
JudgeSmails: I don't hate Brady but I detest the drooling media that love him.

Walter doesn't get that treatmentChicago media gave him that treatment for sure. Wasn't it taboo locally to mention any of the less than admirable things he did off the field?
