We are in the thick of NFL playoffs, and with an epic Jets vs. Patriots showdown just around the corner, players from both teams are mouthing off. Getting the ball rolling was Antonio Cromartie of the Jets who accused Patriots QB Tom Brady of being an “asshole.” Why? He cited Tom’s questionable sportsmanship when he appeared to taunt the Jets’ defensive line after a late-game touchdown in a New England rout of New York. In response, Tom countered that he’s been called a lot worse (something I can attest to based on my own oft-colorful language). And so the epic rivalry has heated up even more. It all begs a question: is Tom Brady an asshole? We know he’s a great player (and yes, it kills me to see that the Betus Superbowl predictions have the Pats over the Jets by a wide, wide margin), but is he a jerk too? Or is this a case of anti-Patriots sentiment clouding the perception of a stellar human being?

What do you think?

Thanks to IndianJones for the heads up.

  1. I’m not a Pats fan, but the irony of almost any Jet calling him an a**hole is funny to me because many would argue that the Jets organization as a whole is filled with more than their share of that particular anatomical feature (Alosi, Braylon, Antonio, Ryan, Holmes… I think the list goes on and on.) Also ironically? Go JETS – still can’t root for the Pats.

  2. Tom Brady will retire as the greatest football player of all time.

    Antonio Cromartie has 9 children with 8 women across 6 states, and the Jets had to front him $500K so he could pay child support. Sooo…YEAH.

    1. Ummmm….what about this little conversation?

      Her: “I’m pregnant”
      Him: “That’s nice, gotta go, I have a date with a supermodel.”

      1. You mean….

        Him: “We’re breakin up, see ya.”
        Her: “ok”

        3 months later…

        Her: “BTW I’m preggers with your kid and I didn’t tell you.”
        Him: “I’m cool with that.”

  3. When you type into Google “Tom Brady is a …” my favorite is “douchebag t-shirt”.
    Go LT.


  4. So if he is an “asshole” then so is every guy who does a dance in the endzone. Or chooses to celebrate a first down. Flawed logic, but normal playoff BS. I’d actually not comment had it been anyone other than Brady but he is pretty much the opposite of an asshole in my opinion. And I am not a Pats fan.

  5. It depends on which ref you ask. One ref will say that he is a big huge asshole. Another will say that he is the perfect sportsman. The real truth probably lies somewhere in between. (and what is up with refs saying some players are celebrating too much in the end zone for a guy pointing to the end of the field and ignoring the guy who did a little jig???)

  6. (pats fan disclaimer) meh? I think most football players have a huge ego/ahole complex. But let’s toss in the millions of dollars they make, the fact that Brady has won a sizable amount of Superbowl games with his team, he’s fathered gorgeous kids with two fantastically beautiful women….he really probably should be a bigger ass, but he seems to just be your-run-of-the-mill egotistical jock. I also think players should get to celebrate a little for getting a touchdown, especially when it’s a key points.

  7. Cowherd of ESPN says if Brady wins another superbowl then they’re gonna name a cereal after him. I hope it’s called ‘Brady Munch’. I’ll eat the whole box.

  8. He is so pretty so I don’t mind if he is an asshole or not. Plus, I completely agree with no-idol.
    GO PATS!!!!!!
