    Anyone want to let this University of Maryland Senior Staff Writer of the student newspaper know of what we think of his garbage?

    The Retriever Weekly

    Maybe the most disgusting article regarding Brady that I have read that did not come from just an average joe mouthing off in another AFC East team's chat room on the net.

    This article seems to be written pretty tongue-in-cheek.

    Did you even read it past the first paragraph?

    Why give him attention for writing an article that basically reinforces the sad fact that the rest of the NFL fan base is admittedly composed of a bunch of callous, jealous losers?

    Thus is born, yet again, a truly weak minded journalist with a skewed outlook on what to celebrate and admire.

    Sad. However:

    Brady will be FINE in 2009

    Just angered me,not because it was Brady or could have been another Patriots player it could have been one of our biggest rival players on another team and still would have irritated me.

    To cheer on an injury that is not totally free from being a career ending one if complications came down the road,the knee is probably one of the worst places to attain an injury since it is a weak area of the body to sustain a blow and nothing to brush off and no one can assume everything will be perfect a year from now,its a serious issue and I will be concerned until I see Brady run a few laps in camp if he is healthy enough by then before I can take a deep breath and realize he is back to near normal again.

    People who write this crap don't think before they spew this insensitive sh!t

    To me, it clearly has some characteristics of satire, but it's not written terribly well so it's difficult to ascertain for sure his intent.

    Have we really gotten this sensitive that we can't recognize sarcasm?

    Now this is a good example of articles that don't deserved to be posted or talked about. Coming soon:an article from the Mansfield High Scholl student newspaper?

    What did I miss in the article that suggests this is in jest?

    I thought the author was sticking up for Brady and wrote this article in jest.

    Nope. He recognizes that Brady's a great QB - That's about it.

    He's obviously a fan of a team that we have beat down. Oh well.

    No. Definitely don't care. Why? Because it IS garbage. Why should I care what The Retriever Weekly has to say?

    It's obviously satire. An amateurish job of it, but...

    He's trying to imply that Brady is modest and not worthy of hate, most likely by fans that are jealous, but he doesn't pull it off.

    Man, it doesn't take much to be a senior staff writer at Maryland, does it? Damn, if I had turned in that quality of writing when I was in college I would have been lucky to get a C.

    But it is just from an average joe mouthing off on the net! It's a student newspaper, written by some random undergrad volunteer making a baby-steps attempt at humor.

    Everybody, can we please, please stop hunting all over the internet to find something, anything negative that some random schmo said about Patriots, then starting a whole thread about it? There is absolutely no information conveyed by this.

    This forum is possibly the worst at getting jokes I have ever posted on, as a general theme.
