Tom Brady Offers a Theory on Why He Thinks People 'Don't Like' Him

Tom Brady thinks people “don’t like” him, and he’s offering a theory as to why that may be.

“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,” the 41-year-old NFL star quarterback, who plays for the New England Patriots, told WEEI’s Kirk and Callahan show on Tuesday (August 21). “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,” Tom continued. “I mean, I was a 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 frustration gets directed at us, and that’s just part of it.”

During his time with the Patriots, Tom has won five super bowls, been the Super Bowl MVP four times, has been named the NFL’s MVP three times, and has consistently led his team to the playoffs multiple years in a row.

    Most people don’t like him because he is a Deplorable that voted for Donald Trump and has called Donald Trump a close personal friend.

  • Aoedele

    I’m going to have to disagree Tom. People don’t like you ’cause you’re a smug know it all.

  • KS_in_TP

    Wrong. He was disliked before Trump.

  • KS_in_TP

    No, Tom. I think it’s YOU. And your spoiled, arrogant, uppity wife.

  • KS_in_TP

    And his wife. She reflects VERY badly on him. Gisele is truly one of the most arrogant women I have ever seen, and that’s coming from a business full of extreme arrogance — by business I mean fashion, modeling, Hollwyood, the world of celebrities — all of it. She’s just horrible.

  • KS_in_TP

    BTW, he’s been a life-lomg Democrat. Why do you think he voted for Trump?

  • Casey C

    people don’t like him because he’s arrogant, stuck-up, Trump-loving douchey and straight up boring, as well as a cheat. his wife and her mouth don’t help either. absolutely stuck up couple

  • mahbelle

    half the country voted for Trump, remember?

  • sarah

    we don’t like you Tom because you ARE NOT likable
    end of the story, now get over yourself

  • Sansa Squad

    I think this would be a pretty accurate assessment if this were 5-10 years ago (negative public sentiment towards him at that point was definitely driven more by resentment than actual hate) but between the Tr*mp support/friendship and his wife’s public lashing out at NFL fans, he’s given people reasons to justify their distaste for him and it’s grown into a real hatred. He deserves it imo, haha.

  • Logan

    They don’t like you because you are a complete moron! You can just see it on how your wife treats you like a retarded son Hellllllooooooo!!!!

  • person

    I like you Tom!!! I think you are kind and handsome and live a good inspired life that I admire–

  • SquidBillie

    No, people don’t like you because you’re arrogant and a CHEATER.

  • SquidBillie

    Oh, be quiet, Giselle.

  • Penny

    Bang on!!!

  • KS_in_TP

    Right??? Doesn’t she sound just like Giselle?

  • KS_in_TP

    There are other things: the scandal over the deflated ball was huge and he handled it bad. Also who was that actor whose mistress was photographed on a plane wearing Toms rings? Was that Affleck’s nanny?

  • Jason Bowen

    Half the United States are complete idiots though.

  • Jason Bowen

    Because Trump is one of his best friends.
