    I don’t live in Boston so don’t follow any of these guys frequently. I just saw a post about his BS Washington story, then 5 minutes later saw a BS story about Brady....from the same guy! I know Tanguay by name only...probably couldn’t pick him out of a lineup.

    His niece was my student a 5-6 years ago. Reasonably smart. Lazy and completely insane though.

    Tanguay is on the C list of Boston media types. Guess it makes reasonable sense for him to attempt to move up, hedging his bets on Brady leaving.

    Eh. I'll go back to completely forgetting he exists.

    The guys on WEEI we're laughing about his latest "hot takes" this afternoon, they're nonsensical, maybe his cancer treatment affected him, glad he overcame it but this nonsense is just silly.

    Petey King said that Brady was NOT about money but more about talent on offense.

    Just thinking the other day wonder what happened to Gary Tanguay, somehow either he moved on or I missed his smug commentary, guess I was wrong.. somehow guys like him, Borges, CHB and the rest of the naysayers never seem to move on...

    It’s weird with shaugnessey. He’s on our sports radio up here in Maine during the pats season, and I like listening to him as a guest contributor. I like hearing what he has to say. I also hate reading his columns. It’s like he’s two different people even when covering the same topic. One is reasonable and informative and the other is snarky and a douchy. It’s weird

    His media persona is awful. Incredibly negative and hot-takeish.

    I actually emailed nbcsb thanking them for putting him and Trenni on together because now I could avoid them both at the same time by not watching one show...

    Tanguay is a hack and just shooting stuff against the wall to see what sticks, but I also think Brady feels monetarily and statuary he is not appreciated enough by all in the Pats org. I think the Krafts left alone will do everything he wants, but the big elephant in the room is the contrarian.

    So he’s got multiple personality disorder. One of him has the tomato soup for lunch and the other personality kicks the tomato can down a blind alley.

    This is all BS. Brady over the years made a decision to TAKE LESS so that the $$$ goes to IMPROVE THE TEAM.

    Just garbage news media....

    I've heard him as a guest on an Atlanta station. He's a play to the crowd type of guy. Basically a Curly Haired Fraud.

    Despite angry emojis and all-cap proclamations, whatever home-town discounts he's taken, he's also had big paydays. Even granting the popular impression that he's always been underpaid (I'd double-check it,) there's still plenty of room to be ticked off at a team that wants you to take .8x instead of .9x. More, actually.

    I'm not defending the opposite thesis in either case -- either that he's been better compensated than the rabble accept, or that he is, indeed, unhappy/dissed/embarassed/whatever... but you look like you "know" the whole Brady deal just by the "He always takes a pay cut" story the mediots trade around.

    Basically, the latest hot hand to sign a contract re-sets the high water mark. If your contract isn't the most recent one, and/or you're not at the peak, there ya go.

    But it's also silly speculation to start saying he's embarrassed by not being rich enough, whatevs. I could make up great scenarios, but it would be me making it up. Now, if the headline is "Brady says he is embarrassed" and there's an account of Brady saying "here is how I feel about THAT," then it's something to worry about.

    edit--but with a contract pending, weird statements are in the category of "**** you say with your contract pending," come to think of it. That said, it's more Brady-like to let his agent talk and hang with the family until all is said/done.

    Remember when Logan Mankins openly feuded with the team over his contract? That looked way worse than the current Brady situation, and it still ended with a contract extension.

    Isn’t it inappropriate for a teacher to make comments like that about a student?
    Very unprofessional. You should probably delete it.
