I've been thinking about something /sp/
LeBron James is the best player of his generation and as such is marketed and pushed non-stop by the NBA to the point where it's obnoxious.
Mike Trout is the best baseball player any of us has seen in a long time and is presented as such by Major League Baseball and in the media at large.
Sidney Crosby was thought to be the next GOAT in hockey and the NHL firmly got behind him as the face of the new generation of players.
Why on earth does the NFL have such a hard time throwing such support behind Tom Brady? The guy might not just be the best player of this generation he might end up being the best professional football player EVER. Why would they not want to push that as hard as they could? Baseball pushed Ruth, basketball pushed Jordan, hockey pushed Gretzky as much as they could. So why not Brady?
Putting a face on a sport has been always been important. Professional sports "stars" draw fans and make money. They increase the popularity of the sport. It's just so strange that the NFL would chose to vilify Brady instead of celebrating him.
Maybe because they proved him and his team cheated in championship years. Theres shit that goes on that the tardos of /sp/ dont know about. Theres more to it than "hurrrr they aint us peanut butter jealous!!!! I just like to randomly break my phones durrrrrr"
It more has to do with media perception. The media loves personalities, who give good quotes, and have interesting stories to write about.
The Patriots reject this idea entirely, they treat the media like shit and in return they get talked about in similar fashion.
Because he's a cheating fuck. No cheating in Denver on Sunday. Mile High Magic, fuckers!
But there's absolutely no reason that needs to be. The NFL could shape the narrative any way they chose, they don't have to drag he and his team through the mud at every opportunity. Look at the HGH situation with Peyton right now, neatly swept under the rug, Or Ray Lewis.
OP here, I'm sorry but I wasn't saying Crosby is the GOAT but that's certainly how the NHL tried to present him even before he had played a game in the pros. And they continued to push that story during Crosby's early years.
Tom Brady is old, hes not teh face of the young generation. Cam Newton, Russel Wilson and Andrew Luck are, and the league is firmly behind them.
Tom Brady has 2 more season left if he avoids injury, and thats it. Hes hardly the poster child of the NFL now. Besides hes a dick who yells at his teammates constantly and makes snide remarks towards everyone with his holier than thou attitude.
He literally never cheated.
If Spygate really bothers you, you have to remember that had nothing to do with Brady. Those were the coaches.
There is no evidence that says he had anything to do with those footballs being deflated or what the PSI in those balls actually was. Those reports that came out about "11 of 12 balls underinflated by 2 PSI" has been proven false. The NFL is so bad at tracking this kind of thing there is no actual hard information out there.
they villified montana, marino, aikman, elway, bradshaw, peyton all the same way. I mean they all got treated the same right? Its not like goodlel and kraft are good friends. I mean srsly, a friend would totally investigate another friends organization and fight them in court for no. Fucking. Reason. Right?
"I just wanted a new phone"
>lamest teenage girl excuse ever used by a grown a man.
>all his dicksuckers believe it because they wanted to.
>If the Pats didn't deflate balls, why did Brady smash up his phone?
Maybe because he had nudes of one of the most famous women on the planet on it? Could be this or literally thousands of other reasons. They got all the texts anyway.
Brady had already submitted his text messaging records to the NFL and was replacing his phone. He didn't "smash it up" he put it in the garbage when he got his new phone (like normal human beings do).
On top of that, he specifically asked permission to get rid of his old phone which was granted. Then later the same people who told him it was okay "leaked" that story of him destroying his phone.
He gave the NFL his text messaging records. The NFL has all the messages and the phone records from the two Patriot employees who were thought to working with Tom in his evil schemes.
The man has a right to some privacy. Maybe he didn't trust the people who immediately "leaked" his email about Peyton Manning growing old and ineffective. Maybe he didn't want these people having the nudes of his super model wife we know are on his phone. Maybe he didn't want these weirdos having pics of his kids. Or of his dick.
tl;dr he gave the NFL what they asked for, asked if he could destroy his phone and then was blind sided when they started to cry that he "smashed it up"
You can't call yourself the best player of the generation when you lose to ELI MANNING TWICE on the biggest stage your sport has to offer
Also Brady's a cheater, system babby, etc.
towards the end I do remember the narrative became "bitter old Dan Marino, yelling at his teammates"
Absolutely not. They made a genuinely mediocre QB in to their golden boy
No way, the Elway super bowl wins were universally celebrated
You're joking right? Manning has been held up as the future GOAT since he was drafted.
I can't even tell what you're trying to say here. You're saying first that Goodell and Kraft are secretly buddy buddy and in on everything together then you turn sarcastic and say that they hate each other. What are you trying to say here?
What i was saying is all of those guys were GOATS at one point. Nobody went after them. But patfags think the NFL commisioners office is some how jealous of brady. Theres a reason, and its not because they anus
>Baseball pushed Ruth,
It was a different era, doesn't really apply.
>basketball pushed Jordan,
and that ruined basketball, by making the star bigger than the sport.
>hockey pushed Gretzky as much as they could.
No. The NHL didn't operate like the Stern-Jordan machine at all. It simply was not like that. Gretzky's greatness, even when he was 12, asserted itself and it was impossible for everyone to NOT notice.
Im saying there is a reason other than "just mad cuz brady is GOAT" that the NFL went after the pats thst hard. Only the commissioners office and brady/belicheat know for sure
>one of the most famous women on the planet
to being one of the most famous women on the planet; she's a model, ffs.
Football is played in two countries, out of 198.
Models are known by a really tiny amount of people in North America and Europe, and hardly at all elsewhere.
Maybe you're a 20-something guy, maybe a student, you live in a small world, I guess. Get out of your envelope, away from your sameview friends, and visit reality sometime, milkbag.
You remind me of a female undergrad I saw with her friends in a supermarket. They walked past the delicatessan area, and she said, "Meat?! God, who eats meat anymore?"
Don't believe your personal experience is a reflection of how the world is.
>an underdog that had to fight to get were he is
>all he does is win
>cheats and gets away with it
>makes a mockery of the NFL
>has a networth of 100s of millions
>is married to a woman who is even richer
>literally had a moat around his old house
>friends with Trump
How can one man be so based?
>Why would they not want to push that as hard as they could?
Because he is the only reason the Patriots aren't shit and everyone but Patriots fans hate the Patriots and their fans. Brady gives those cunts room to babble
It's not rocket science
I'm almost 40 years old kid, I'm willing to bet I have alot more world experience than you. Bundchen is really famous and well known whether you want to believe it or not. Point is, Brady could've had many other reasons why he didn't want his phone in other people's hands
Because the man who runs the league is a Jets fan, a former Jets employee, who happens to hate the Patriots. As such, he hired a bunch of ex-Jets goons to fill the office out, so there are even less people who like the Patriots up there.
>The Patriots are the Ronda Housey of the NFL
Bullshit. That would make sense if the Pats were a team in some sort of league for midgets that somehow got pushed as the biggest deal in the sport.
You do know that doesn't actually work, right? Keep that in mind when you trash your stash of cuck porn in the recycle bin, faggot. Doesn't matter if you reformat your HD. It'll still be there, you can bet it would be found.
The only way to truly wipe it would be to take a strong magnet to it (which would destroy it) or to smash it to pieces.
Because Manning was the "Chosen" one, the Rams were the greatest show on earth, the Oakland Raiders had the best coach in football in Gruden and Brady & Belichick came in out of nowhere as underdogs and fucked up that whole narrative. At the time it was seen as a nice underdog story especially with 9/11 happening that a team called the Patriots won and it was assumed things would go back to normal as scheduled. Except that the Patriots kept coming back...and back...and kept winning and winning leaving everyone in the dust.
16 years later and the defending champions look poised to repeat yet again. Everyone that was left in the dust is just insanely bitter at this point. Seriously watch CBS anytime Shannon Sharpe is on talking about the Patriots, you can literally see the veins popping in his temple with a scowl on his face. Then coaches like Dungy, Gruden and Cowher are on TV having to look upon their peer Belichick become the greatest coach in NFL history, every win he accumiliates tarnishes their own legacy that much more. This is why the Patriots are hated across the league.
Spygate, deflategate, tuck rule, his own team doesnt like him, Lied multiple occasions, caught talking really spiteful and hateful things about loved veterans. oh and really, really bad haircuts!
he put it on himself
Tim Duncan has a better career than Kobe or Lebron but he's not more popular because he prefers to be reserved
same exact thing with Brady, if Brady wanted to be more popular and the face of the nfl he can.
When the Pats have the lead and are ready to kneel to end the game they should go to P Manning and Roger Goodell and tell this if they repeat ("I am a false prophet and deflategate is a superstition") they will give the ball back to Denver and let them win.
After it is repeated 4 or 5 times they kneel and end the game then BB will be like "I Told you i would eat you!"
probably because football is one of the most team dependent sports there is. singling out one person and saying their the greatest in a game like the nfl is disrespectful and diminishes the accomplishments of the team. brady is nothing if not lucky. he lucked out in first owl wins, sitting behind a top tier offensive line, having an excellent defense and an elite special teams. all he did was dink and dunk, just another bradshaw. he didn't start putting up great numbers and winning again until he started to throw to hall of fame talent like randy moss, gronk and even edelman. lets be honest, anyone could be successful if they had gronk as a tight end and he's the one who carries that offense, not brady.
all you have to do is look at the numbers
>brady's td to int ratio before gronk: 2:1
>ratio after gronk: 4:1
he just got extremely lucky and fell into a great situation and from a talent stand point doesn't even rank in the top 20 qbs of all time. he's really nothing special
Hes's probably got closer to 4.
Brady at 38 is as /fit/ as ever and is playing some of the best football he's ever played.
He'll easily play to 40 and beyond. My prediction is he simply keeps playing long enough to own every passing record.
Peyton owns them all now, but this is his last season. Brady will just keep playing and stat padding until he owns them all too, combined with his 5 super bowls, he'll be the undisputed GOAT
To answer your question, OP, it's because Tom Brady is a little bitch who complains every time he gets knocked down. And he's a known cheater. Oh btw, he can"t even get his team an undefeated season even after cheating three times. (At least) Miami Dolphins14-0 in 1972. Suck it Patriots, you bitch ass pussies.
Since when have Gruden or Cowher shit on the Pats though? Hell, Cowher basically said spygate wasn't shit and people were just butthurt, and that's coming from a team that was filmed.
Dungy's a cuck though.
Because he's an intensely private person who didn't want to be dragged through the mud, and because he asked if he had to keep the phone and the people who said he didn't were then the ones who shit on him for dumping the phone.
Yeah I don't really get it either.
I think he kind of already is but if Brady can manage to win maybe one or two more SBs, he will be called be the greatest ever (i.e. the Michael Jordan of football) by everyone except people who don't understand the ideal gas law and still cry out "cheater" whenever he does something noteworthy.
