Tom Brady: Doesn't care about Super Bowl, says won't watch the big game

Tom Brady is a sore loser – plain and simple. His surprising quote about not watching Super Bowl XLVIII, reported on Saturday by Sports World News, is equal parts puerile and disappointing.

The uber-successful Brady, destined for Football’s Hall of Fame, shouldn’t give haters any additional reasons to pile on the abhorrence. But he did just that, exempting himself from the one hundred million viewers who are expected to tune on Feb 2. to watch a Patriot-less Super Bowl.

The celebrated quarterback revealed last Wednesday in his weekly radio appearance with WEEI-FM that he won’t watch the game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos.

"Truthfully, I could care less about watching the game. That's pretty much how I feel," Brady said.

Actually, the proper phrase is “I could not care less,” and I’m not inclined to let that one slide. Why? Because Tom Brady is married to a supermodel and gets to do Stetson commercials and wears velvet sport coats and is always showing off a hat with his own initials on them. But I digress.

Brady’s apathetic remarks came a few days after his Patriots lost 26-16 to the Broncos in a game that they were never really close in, foiling Brady’s chance for a sixth trip to the Super Bowl.

"I don't have much of a rooting interest, truthfully," he admitted. "Those games are hard to watch. I don't really see myself sitting down to enjoy a football game to watch it. Our season's over ... It's a very abrupt end."

Tom Brady may be the most recognizable figure in the NFL. For him to simply toss in his velvety white towel and declare his overwhelming indifference is inexcusable.

At least watch the game for the commercials. That’s what I do.
