New England Patriots are one of the greatest football team in the National Football League which is the reason so many people hate them. Yes, the Pats are even referred to the NFL’s version of the “Evil Empire.”
Tom Brady knows this, and isn’t bothered at all. The Patriots quarterback is used to the fact that his team is being universally hated by fans of other teams. Being the best can sometimes bring you a trouble.
The Patriots had three Super Bowl appearances and two titles in the last four years. But, some people still talk about Deflategate.
The scandal gave the Patriots a terrible headache, but it’s all good now.
Brady had an interview on “Kirk & Callahan,” and talked about the emotions he and his team face on a daily basis.
“I think it’s a different part about football, for example, in America. I mean, if you look at a lot of other sports around the world, at some point, maybe you get to represent your country, like watching the World Cup in the summer. I see all these soccer players that play for these different clubs but then come together for their country at some point. In America, we never get a chance to do that. So, most Americans that live in other parts of the country, they don’t like the Patriots. They don’t like me, and I can understand that,” Brady said.
The NFL doesn’t have an international competition, meaning there’s no chance that fans of other teams support Brady in any occasion. “I was a (San Francisco) 49ers fan at one point. They want to see their team win, and when they don’t, I think they’ve got to direct that frustration somewhere else. When you’ve been successful like our team has been, I think that frustration gets directed at us, and that’s just part of it,” the quarterback said.
We got his point. And you?
