By now you have all heard that Tom Brady's four game suspension has been removed by a court of law. This blog is not about Tom Brady (though I will write one soon). This blog IS about the fans that support him and his team. Most of my future blog posts are going to be about assorted issues. Not this one.
Now I understand standing behind your team through thick and thin. But some of the comments that I have seen in the past few hours are beyond ridiculous.
For example, there's this one:
I have seen posts like this a few times in scouring different sites. I personally am trying to wrap my head around it. I even commented to one of them to explain it a little further. But I have yet to get an answer. Nothing to me says this is a story about the color of one's skin or the amount of money in his bank account. It probably has more to do with there wasn't enough (or any, depending on your view point) evidence to say he was directly involved.
And then there's this wonderful comment:
We have all seen hashtags like this lately. #BlacklivesMatter #WhiteLivesMatter #CopsLivesMatter. It's been used socially to protest the senseless murders that have occurred in the last year. For someone to turn it around like this is just plain dumb. Brady's life was never in question. People are dying. Balls have been deflated. Apparently to Correll Jenkins they are the same damn thing.
But here's someone who doesn't think anyone's lives matter:
Dear Tutu Udeh. It's just a game! I hope you know that. Again, I understand loyalty to your team but to tell haters to kill themselves just proves what a classy fan you are. And to further his point he had not one, not two but three gun emojis. Did you perhaps borrow those guns from former New England Tight End Aaron Hernandez? Stay classy!
