I think the NFL could use a healthy dose of clownishness.

Of the Pro Wrestling kind?

Ron Borges of the Boston Herald reports that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has decided to get compensated in a way that he never really has. Citing unnamed “sources close to” Brady, he is “ready to sit out all of this year’s offseason organized team activities unless he receives a contract extension that carries with it up-front money similar to what his former protege, Jimmy Garoppolo, will receive from the San Francisco 49ers.”

It’s unclear what “up-front money” means. Signing bonus? Full guarantees at signing? Something else?

Brady currently is due to make $14 million in 2018 and 2019, the final two years of his current deal. He consistently has gotten new contracts that trigger praise for “taking less” while always getting plenty of “up-front money.” His latest contract, signed in 2016, paid him $28 million to sign. The contract before that one paid $30 million to sign.

He’s never had to make a power play to get paid, and it’s odd to think that Brady already has drawn a line in the sand, only five days after Super Bowl LII, about his next contract. Besides, if he’s going to make a power play, wouldn’t it be much better to say he’ll simply retire?

Some in league circles believe that Brady made that threat in order to ensure that the Patriots keep offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. Borges hints at dynamic, writing that McDaniels’ retention “was in part orchestrated by Brady’s insistence he be retained as head coach-in-waiting.”

The story was pulled from the Herald

Report (a/k/a false report): Brady will skip OTAs unless he gets paid like Jimmy G

apparently the Brady story was a hoax

http://www.weei.com/blogs/rob-bradford/kc-herald-story-tom-brady-holdout-product-hoax

It looks like Tom Brady will be attending the OTAs after all.

The Kirk & Callahan show uncovered that the source for the Boston Herald's story "Tom Brady wants to get paid like Jimmy G, or he’ll skip OTAs" was a product of a hoax.

Kirk Minihane, Gerry Callahan and Mike Mutnansky revealed Friday morning that a texter "Nick in Boston" was pretending to be Tom Brady's agent Don Yee when texting Boston Herald columnist Ron Borges. The texts informed Borges that Brady was intent on sitting out the Patriots' preseason workouts unless he was compensated like his former backup, Jimmy Garoppolo, who agreed to the largest deal in NFL history (5 years, $137.5 million) Thursday.

The story was immediately refuted by such outlets as NBC Sports Boston and NESN late Thursday night. And then, during their show, Kirk & Callahan offered more evidence that the report was based off incorrect information:





The Boston Herald has removed Borges' story from their website. The story led the back page of the print edition of the newspaper.

Your never-ending trolling for Brady dirt led you to the fake Herald story.

and your thimble dick stiffened, didn't it, you fucking creep?

and as previously posted here, Tom v Time is very real and is very well done and very entertaining.

i would recommend it to any football fan, so if you know any you might mention it to them.

and the kiss on the lips between father and son seemed strange to me, but I'll leave it to you, an indecent piece of shit with no moral compass whatsoever to pass judgement on Brady and his parenting style with his children.

You're fucking clueless.

what a dick move.

So, Dungy, who is paid by NBC to analyze players says the guy will have a good game because of his faith and you're okay with that?

How about if he said, "I don't think Foles will do well today, because he is not a strong believer in Jesus Christ"?

You'd be okay with that, too, it seems.

Still not a HOFer.

And you're a piece of shit who will die alone.

I don’t care what he says on tv. He has a great body of work from Graduate Assistant to Super Bowl Head Coach and he’s a branch on the Bill Walsh and Chuck Noll coaching tree. He earned his jacket and bust.

We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.

Orson Welles

Branch? He's a twig on the forest floor. The single most overrated coach in the Hall of Fame. He's the black Marv Levy. He's like George W. Bush. He was handed the Cadillac of quarterbacks and crashed it repeatedly into a tree, with HOF receivers and winning only 1 Superbowl with countless trips to the play-offs in which he was only 10-9. 10 and 9 with Peyton Manning as your QB?

He kept his job for the same reason that Marvin Lewis keeps his, and for the same reason he won't be disciplined or fired for reneging his duty to provide analysis of the game and its players instead of injecting his bullshit religion into the broadcast.

 Orson Welles? Have another sandwich, Rosebud.
