We want to feel bad for Tom Brady. We really do. But even after the future Hall of Fame quarterback decided not to appeal his four-game suspension for his part in Deflategate, we couldn’t find it in our hearts to feel bad for the New England Patriots superstar; not even when we know that this whole scandal was one of the most obscene witch hunts in the history of the National Football League.
No, we can’t feel bad for Tom Brady — not when the guy already has it so good.
We understand that this may come across as a bit petty, but we don’t care. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and this is ours: Suspension or not, few NFL players — if any — have it as good as Tom Brady. The guy has impeccable style, a fat bank account, Gisele Bundchen as a wife, and a beautiful family. Sure, he’s worked hard to achieve all of these things, but that doesn’t change how we feel. Something tells us we’re not the only ones.
With Brady overcoming a four-game suspension to lead the Patriots to another Super Bowl victory, we expect his wrath to continue far beyond 2017. This is what he’s done his entire career; it’s another reason why we can’t feel bad for the guy. In fact, we feel bad for everyone else. Because compared to other players in the league, Brady is on a whole other level. See for yourselves.
