What doesn’t Tom Brady have? He has the rings, the statistics, the money, the looks, the wife, the list goes on and on (no high five skills though). Which doesn’t make it too surprising to see him being voted the ‘most hated’ quarterback, in the entire National Football League. Jealousy is a tricky thing, and I think it reigns supreme in this situation.

In a week that has been filled with analysis of the upcoming AFC Championship game, and Brady missing practice with what apparently was a serious case of “nothing”, it is nice to get a bit of comedy, in what is otherwise a serious week of Pats coverage.

Public Policy Polling released their third annual poll earlier in January, and Brady received the most ‘hate’, among the quarterbacks. 18% of those who voted said that they disliked Brady the most, although it should be pointed out that he also came in tied for second, as most popular quarterback. Peyton Manning was voted most popular, while his team, the Broncos, came out on top in the most popular team category. When asked about his ranking today, Brady responded with, “I have a great life”.

Yes you do Tom, yes you do.

    People hate a consistent winner…and they like an underdog. If Brady or Belichek was traded to another team….that team would suddenly think they were the best thing since sliced bread

  • Troy Allen

    It isn’t hate…it’s envy. Tom Brady has the life we all dream of having….people just HATE not being Tom.

  • Angel

    I won’t forget the tuck rule…. But we are lucky to see Brady play, to witness the greatest QB in the history of the NFL. When we are old and talking about the best. I’ll have to say Tom F’n Brady dude!!

    Many people get led by the opinions of the media. They don’t even know it when it happens.
    If sportswriters say ‘Hate Tebow’ the submissives ask ‘How much?’
    That’s were this Brady hate comes from. A few jealous men/sportswriters or sportscasters who can’t stand to see another man have it all. So they target him sometimes openly, other times with a bit of stealth.

    The hate for most sports stars and celebs begins in the media. The media has an alarming amount of influence over people and control over what people hate, love, think, feel.
    Media says Hate FOX News.
    Media says love Liberal News.
    Media says Hate Justin Bieber.
    Media says love Barack Obama.
    Media says love Gays.
    Media says hate Tim Tebow.
    Media says hate rich people.
    Media says give up your right to bear arms.
    Media says everyone who does not conform to the Liberal viewpoint is a racist, sexist, ignorant homophobe,
    Media says hate Christians.
    Media says the economy is bad every day, all day when a Republican is in the White House.
    Media says the economy is improving, good or great when a Democrat is in the White House.

    Media says hate republicans.
    Media says Obama’s incompetence is George Bush and Republican Congresspersons fault.
    Media says love Democrats.

    It’s amazing just how many things become popular opinion after 1st being introduced by the media. Not a coincidence.

      You shouldn’t need the media to tell you to hate Justin Bieber. I mean, honestly.

    Back in the 1960′s I did NOT like the Cowboys Roger Staubach and the head coach Tom Landry. But on a scale from 1-10 that was about a 5 compared to Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belechick. I simply can NOT stand Brady or Belechick. He is nothing but a spoiled SOB and he has the face that I would love to smack just for the hell of it. Belechick is not much better. I hope Peyton Manning and the Broncos beat the Patriots something like 62-9. Then I ‘m sure Brady/Belechick would have something to piss & moan about.
