I presume we all read the newspaper(s), listened to the call in radio shows, as well as considered exactly what Tom Brady meant when he criticized the Patriots fan base on Thursday.
Being at Sunday’s game, every fan’s realized the Cincinnati Bengals had no chance to win their first ballgame of the 2010 season. They weren’t going to win after an early halftime exit from “Batman and Robin,” (a.k.a. Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco) or after Brandon Tate’s 97-yard touchdown return in the second half.
Quarterback Carson Palmer seemed confused at times, as well as was not in sync with his receivers. I am pretty sure that all the Bengals fans realized that this was not their week.
With all of this in mind, then why must Brady call out the hometown faithful? Can’t every person remain seated in his or her seats or do they all need to be standing constantly for 60 minutes? Come on Tom, what did you expect?
Chastising Patriots fans, especially those who have been apart of the team through their “dark years” and rebuilding seasons is unnecessary.
Tom, how long have you lived in Massachusetts? Do you feel it is right to call out ticket holder’s who want to just watch football? Can’t you give them a break?
As a season ticket holder, I find it completely unnecessary for an athlete to challenge the way I want watch a game. I don’t intend to show up and stand around screaming throughout the course of every game because I need to save my vocal chords.
I show up to the game because I am (A.) a fan and (B.) in the stands to cheer you, as well as the rest of your teammates onto victory.
Don’t challenge the fans in Boston. Just because some decided to leave early on Sunday, especially when the Patriots were up by a gigantic margin, doesn’t mean it is necessary to challenge their decisions.
Tom, stop complaining about the fans and concentrate on football. As the season progresses, I can promise you, myself and all the fans will be cheering for your team to keep on marching toward the Super Bowl, but this was completely uncalled for.
