Is Tom Brady A Sore Loser? All Signs Point To Yes

Submitted by: littlemissqt 6 months ago in Sports


Last night, the favored Patriots of New England lost to a pretty good Eagles team. I didn't watch all of it, but I did catch the last 10 minutes and it seemed like every other Super Bowl I've seen: A stocky linebacker dumps a Gatorade cooler over his grumpy defense coach, confetti blasts out of cannons as the final second ticks off the clock, and the head coaches and QBs of both teams meet mid field, shake paws, and mumble "good game" to each other.

It's nothing other than tradition and it shows class. It shows that you can win like a man, and you can lose like one. So when Brady runs off the field, fresh off a final, unsuccessful drive which displayed his lack of control of the game, it's a bullshit move. Typical all-American jock who gets rattled and pouts back into the locker room when things don't go his way.

I think this was a move in the heat of the moment.  I would bet sooner rather than later regret will sink in and Tom Brady would have rather shown good sportsmanship and shake hands with the Eagles players.  

He has won more than his fair share, he has to be a grown up about losing.

On the other hand, he is incredibly rich, has a supermodel wife, is considered royalty in the new england area, it regret might not be something folks in that rarified air bother to feel.

I've never really followed sports much. I know that there are at least two professional teams with the word "Socks" in them...at least I think there are.

Anyway, I watched a football game some years ago (can't remember if college or NFL). Guy with ball gets tackled. Guy who made the tackle uses the facemask of the runner to get up. Like, pushing off of it in order to stand up.

I don't care how much of an ape the tackler is. I don't care how much celebration & chest thumping he does. I prefer games where the guy who made the tackle helps the runner up. 

The article asks the question "who cares," and then goes on to answer that question: "The whole thing is great for photo ops and teaching six-year-olds about sportsmanship."

Isn't that what we're bemoaning here? Six-year-olds aren't being taught sportsmanship?

It almost bothers me more that the linked article basically says who cares, it's not unsportsmanlike at all.  Almost.  Both are terrible.

You know, at a jiu-jitsu tournament, win or lose, you shake your opponents hand and your opponent's coach's hand.  It's a respect thing.  The whole community looks down on you and some instructors will not let you back in their school or will not coach you during tournaments if you do that while representing them.

Why is the media saying who cares?  It's bad enough he did it in the first place, but to go excusing him for it?

Watching football movies turned me against the Pats. They just seem like the team of "bad guys" from most football movies. All white, rich, douchebags that will do anything including cheating to win a game...

Why you all bashing on Tom? He's the friggen goat. He didn't help bring the Patriots to 8 Superbowls because he sucks. Oh, and apperently he's still human.

wellsy57 I dunno. If you've been to the Super Bowl as many times as Brady has, congratulating the winning QB should be deeply ingrained by now. I don't know much about Brady, but this looks like behavior from a teenager, not a man over 40.

squrlz4ever Agreed!!! I watched every second of the game and spent most of it rooting for Philly.....the rest of the time I was pounding down my wife's amazing cheese dip but anyway.....Brady should have at least went to shake his hand. Cheap classless move from a poor loser. It's a game....get over it and accept defeat like a gentleman. Foles deserved to win, what a story.

Quite possibly, Tom - who is not used to losing, forgot protocol for a minute because he was thinking about how he was going to apologize to his teammates in the locker-room for fumbling late in the game and costing them a chance to tie or win.  So, let's all jump to conclusions and call him names... willing to bet he congratulated Foles before the night was over, either in person or via text/tweet.

normalfreak2 Well, if we're looking for a similar instance in which the winner couldn't muster the composure and manners to congratulate the loser immediately after the contest, the parallel would be Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump.
