2008-05-14T19:45:00.000-04:00

Hate to break it to you, Sparky, but Brady EXEMPLIFIES that star-based shallow approach to sports. And as an admitted viewer, he apparently had no problem with the network as they overhyped his career into overdrive. ESPN couldn't glorify Brady enough, and he was fine with that. But now when they say something he doesn't like -- ooh ESPN sucks.

Do another GQ spread, Tommy, and complain

2008-05-14T18:10:00.001-04:00

ESPN just aired his comments on the 6 eastern sportscenter just now, as part of their SPYGATE shit.

And Brian Kenny just laughed it off. "Yea, well that's another topic for another day."

Well, the dinnertime SportsCenter aired Brady's comment and kept the ESPN criticism. I guess I'm mildly surprised.

ESPN overhypes everything. Just show the game and shut up.

You are wrong AA .. Peyton Manning is the league's biggest and most recognizable star.

2008-05-14T11:45:00.000-04:00

Brady is correct; by design ESPN is now more about entertainment, ratings, and getting attention than sports and reporting. They're not what they used to be. They find their drama queens that are going to get them ratings like Terrell Owens, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, the Steinbrenners, etc. and bleed them for all they're worth, and they shove the Boston teams down the nation's throats to the

2008-05-14T11:40:00.000-04:00

Hear hear, Tom. ESPN has been in a steady decline over the last ten years. Back when I (and Brady) was in college, Sportscenter was easily the best show on television. They've gravitated away from compelling highlights and towards the Budweiser Hot Seat (or whatever gimmick they're running now). They've moved from skilled journalists providing information and insight to nutbars like Skip Bayless.

Hannah Storm will turn things around, she has GRAVITAS.

I mean, Hannah "Eye of the" Storm.

Brady was going to elaborate, but before he could go on, he was sacked by Justin Tuck.

2008-05-14T10:27:00.000-04:00

Isn't this kind of hypocritical of Dreamboat? He says that ESPN is turning into MTV yet this football player is all over TMZ. You can't have it both ways, guy that couldn't beat Eli Manning.

2008-05-14T09:33:00.000-04:00

if brady doesn't like espn, then i don't like espn.

and when tom eventually goes bald (we know why you're slicking it back), i'll shave my head in support.

2008-05-14T09:04:00.000-04:00

The best part of that interview. Brady says something about Lawyer Milloy emailing him saying "Haha, you guys cheated that's why you beat us."

Tom's response:
"Yea, you're right. Ok we'll give you 4 touchdowns back... shit we still win."

Just another reason why I love Tom Brady.

2008-05-14T08:36:00.000-04:00

He filmed because, whether or not it was the truth, when this incident was reported Bill said that his interpretation was that filming was acceptable as long as video was not used during the game to make adjustments as the NFL Constitution and Bylaws stipulate that "...any communications or information-gathering equipment, other than Polaroid-type cameras or field telephones, shall be prohibited.

2008-05-14T08:20:00.000-04:00

Too bad he didn't explain why his coach bothered to do all the taping, if it was so pointless. I'd be interested in finding that out.

2008-05-14T08:13:00.000-04:00

It's official:

Tom Brady is now officially one of my favorite players. It took long enough for an athlete to call out ESPNTV for their star-based, shallow approach to sports.

He'll make a This Is Sports Center commercial within a year.

2008-05-14T06:24:00.000-04:00

I happened to be listening to that interview on my drive home last night. Brady went on to say he was disappointed that the former players doing commentary spent so little time on analyzing the game and educating the fan while helping to promote the secondary stuff.

In terms of SpyGate, he was curious as to why none of these former players would comment on the absurdity of filming a

It's official, Brady has lost touch with reality...

One of the problems with ESPN is that the anchors don't go out on a limb ENOUGH... most analysts say the inoffensive thing to avoid rocking the boat the vast majority of the time.

He wasn't critizing them when they were praising him and still will be when the Spygate talk ends.

2008-05-14T00:50:00.000-04:00

It's just Tom being Tom; that crazy, kooky kid.
All seriousness aside, he's dead-on about the WWL being like MTV. How else do you explain "Who's Now?" and "E:60"?
