    Tim Thomas shouldn't have taken any **** for not going. Brady shouldn't be taking **** for not going. Outside of those who's jobs would be in the situational logistics, whether a particular person decides to go to the White House when invited, or decides not to, is nobody's concern but their own.

    People really need to re-learn how to mind their own freakin' business.

    Seems a rather large stretch to say that anything quoted in that article calls Brady a liar. It merely jibes him for holding an awkward press conference. Which he did.

    Nobody was complaining about the fact that Tom Brady chose to talk.

    The criticisms about Brady's press conference, to my recollection, were made by a whole variety of pundits who found his statements to be not believable, both in delivery and body language. Most non-New Englanders agreed, based on some public opinion polls.

    The criticism was based solely on what they perceived to be untruthful mannerisms, which is obviously pretty shaky ground to stand upon.

    The press secretary was piling on that sentiment of disbelief, pure and simple.

    I'm not interested in recapping history. Suffice it to say, even then we had leaders who truly cared about the good of the country, and would cross the aisle for the greater good. America's steady progress until the mid-90's is testament to that.

    Today, if you believe a single human inside the Capitol (D or R) cares literally about anything than securing their own careers, I have oceanfront properties to sell you in Kansas.

    It was awkward at times. With that said TB stood there and answered every freaking dumb-ass question.

    He may not have shown the greatest of PR skills but he showed character, leadership and intestinal fortitude. It is for those reasons his teammates will follow him anywhere.

    They are droning on about deflate gate, that the Pats deserve their negative reputation, spy gate, stupid Patriots fans, Belichick an a-hole etc.

    I turned on the radio for four minutes and I heard all of that w/in that short time span.

    I really disagree, but can't work up the energy to debate the topic any further.
    Looking forward to the Draft.

    One major negative of the internet is that it has turned a whole lot of men who should know better into the same sort of gossiping hens that used to be despised by most people.

    Very few players in any sport are as meticulous at avoiding unnecessary distractions that could hurt the team as Tom Brady. It's difficult to see how Brady's skipping this visit is consistent with that record. But presumably he knows what he's doing, he always has.

    While very true, it is also ironic to tell people what to do while telling them to mind their own business.

    He was always a clueless idiot. But yeah ever since he embarrassed himself on each show and lost that position he has been as bad as Borges.

    I honestly think Tanguay is slow. He's always been the harmless kid in the remedial reading class. Now he has gotten the directive that, because he is fat and old, he needs a "hook" to stay on TV.

    Say what you want about Borges or Felger, at least they have brains. This guy is just embarrassingly feeble minded.

    Which he absolutely shouldn't have, because Brady isn't a damn politician.

    Yes .... it's sad that controversy makes these people orgasmic as it's fodder for ratings.
    So many decent sports stories everyday that take a back seat to negativity.
    I have no issue with TMZ and similar doing it as it's their business model.
    I do have an issue with sports media people stroking their choades with red meat most every day.
