Tom Brady hangs up on radio interview after Alex Guerrero questions

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady does not want to get into the issue of his longtime personal trainer Alex Guerrero’s role with the team.

Brady hung up during a live interview with WEEI this morning after facing questions about Guerrero, whose uneasy relationship with coach Bill Belichick has been widely reported.

When Brady was asked about Guerrero being on the team’s plane last week, he gave only a brief answer.

“He was with me this last week,” Brady said.

Asked why Guerrero was allowed with the team last week, when he hadn’t been allowed to fly with the team last season, Brady answered, “I’m not getting into all that.” Asked a follow up, Brady said, “I said I don’t want to get into it.”

When Brady got one more question about whether Guerrero was on the sideline, he answered, “Yeah. Alright, guys, have a great day. I’ll talk to you later,” and then hung up.

It’s the second time this summer that Brady has shut down a media appearance over a question about Guerrero. During training camp, when Brady was asked about Julian Edelman’s suspension and told that people connected it to Guerrero, Brady answered, “No comment. It’s ridiculous. I’m out” and walked off.

One of the big stories in New England last season was Guerrero’s role in an allegedly deteriorating relationship between Brady and Belichick. Brady doesn’t want that to be the story again, but by refusing to talk, he may only bring more attention to Guerrero’s role on the team.

  1. It’s one thing to abruptly end an interview when the interviewer is being disrespectful. It’s something else to simply refuse to talk about Guerrero. PFT has been ultra-curious about him but I’ve been shrugging it off since Day 1. Now I’m starting to wonder simply due to Brady’s unwillingness to even talk about him. It is peculiar.

  2. Most media goes overboard now, leave it alone….just sharks in the water trying to get the biggest scoop. Not a Brady fan but damn could have had a good interview but gotta ask the hard hitting questions “was Alex g on the plane” well there’s a big story…… glad someone found that out

  3. How many times do you have to tell the press I’m not going there?

    Before they realize you’re not going there.

    The press is out of control lately. Screw them.

  4. Patriots have all been instructed to plead the fifth. Say nothing incriminating, try to pay off the investigators and lawyers, and if that fails then scheme up some whacky conspiracy theory about how Roger and the league are “out to get them.”

    When will they ever come clean and admit to the wrongdoing they habitually partake in? Will they use the OJ defense and joke about what they did while still claiming innocence?

  5. Guess someone hit a nerve.

    WEEI certainly needs Brady more than Brady needs whatever WEEI is paying him, but this shows again how these paid radio appearances by players are just PR exercises.

  6. When you are told twice that there is nothing to say about something and you come again a third time with the same loaded question what do you expect?

  7. It has always been my experience that people guilty of cheating get defensive and want to avoid talking about it.

    He has gotton upset and hung up or walked away when asked about Edelman or Guerrero this summer. I think that is telling. Why not just say “Those are questions you would need to ask them” and move on rather than throwing a temper tantrum and walk away or hang up?

    I think Tom Brady is a great player. I also do not fully believe a word that comes out of his mouth. Once someone has proven to be dishonest once I can never and will never fully trust what they say again.

  8. “When you are told twice that there is nothing to say about something and you come again a third time with the same loaded question what do you expect”?

    How about an honest answer!

  9. I am a Steelers fan, so I have no bone in this fight. What I have never understood about the media is why they don’t tell people topics they will cover before the interview. This way, they don’t get half statements or hangups. On more than one occasion, Brady made it known he was not willing to discuss that topic, for the interviewer to continue to press on shows a level of unprofessionalism.

    It’s no different that Jamie Foxx making it clear he won’t discuss his personal life and then ESPN’s Michael Smith was interviewing him for a NBA show and then brought up his rumored relationship with Katie Holmes and Smith was surprised Jamie Foxx just walked off.

  10. When you are told twice that there is nothing to say about something and you come again a third time with the same loaded question what do you expect?

    Loaded question? He was asked if Guerrero was on the sideline during the game.

  11. Exactly what the petulant child did when the commissioner asked him for his cell phone, he destroyed it. Instead of telling them the truth ( he ran to krafty and said “ daddy tell that meanie bill to let alex come)! He hung up. Something very very odd about this relationship

  12. The guy has the right to not answer a question, if he was playing games and giving some half baked answer that would be one thing but he was honest and to the point, not going to answer that question period. To ask it again and again is just dumb and the interviewer got what he deserved.

    He and BB may not get along as well as they used to, who knows, but they have another thing in common now, dumb interviewers asking the same question over and over again and getting fed up with it.

  13. Guerrero was thrown off the team plane and the sidelines by Belichick last season. Now he was spotted on the team plane last week. Perfectly legitimate line of questioning. Brady has become a major diva. Btw I’m a Patriot fan of 20 + years. Guerrero has a sleazy past yet Brady completely embraces this guy both professionally and personally.

  14. That’s the interview equivalent of running off the field without shaking hands with anybody on the opposing team after you lose in the Super Bowl. Brady is the undisputed GOAT in both of those.

  15. If someone obviously doesn’t want to answer certain questions on certain topics, it’s time to move on to a new topic. I’m not saying that it’s okay to hang up, but they had to know he wasn’t going to discuss Guerrero.

  16. It’s so GREAT to be a fan of the back to back AFC and soon to be 6 time World Champion Patriots! 🙂

    Face facts Patriot Hater. You never deserved to be mentioned in the same sentence as US. You are not in OUR league. You never were at OUR level and never will be. You are beneath US.

    Tee hee 🙂 So easy to trigger you too!

    🙂

    I think you (and some others who aren’t Pats fans) got it wrong. If you were a Pats fan you’d know Brady has gotten fed up with tons of such repeated questions and under those circumstances was polite enough. And the reason is simple – the media couldn’t care less about Guerrero, they’re only asking because it’s the latest angle on the salty media narrative of their desperately poking and hoping for any sort of rift between Brady and Belichick. Of all the great things they could be asking Brady about football and his life, they just want to poke about his personal trainer, it’s pathetic, screw ’em.

  18. The Patriots in general don’t deal with distractions.

    If you’re trying to ask questions that the answers will cause distractions you’re going to get the we are on to Cincinnati type answers.

    The press is so dumb they haven’t figured this out yet.

    Go read the Wells report, the NFL paid for Wells report nonetheless and see the ‘truth’ you speak of. Educate yourself man instead of repeating drivel on this website. Use common sense, if you text me, and I give up my phone, is there a need for YOUR phone to see what you texted me? And even Brady caved to pressure and provided over 10,000 texts via script to the NFL. And then of course there was the lawyers telling Brady they didn’t need his cell phone at ththe beginning anyhow. Leaked messages about his pool boy, conversations about Peyton Manning, etc…. from his phone logs he provided. Geesh, everything is in black and white but you have to actually take the time to read it. …..or just believe what the headline says on everything in life and roll with it.

  21. Can’t stomach the morning show on WEEI so I’m loathe to defend them but if they hadn’t asked about Guerrero after he was on the plane last week they’d have looked like total homers. It’s Brady’s prerogative to refuse to answer but they had to follow that issue, everyone in Boston is wondering what’s up with Guerrero and the Pats.
    Tom shouldn’t give interviews (beyond the league mandated ones) if he’s going to dictate terms like that. That’s not an interview, that’s a press junket.

  22. I’m not a Brady fan but if he says he’s not going to get into that they stop freaking asking him. I personally would never speak to reporters, ever.

  23. Anybody that has not heard the morning hosts at weei have no idea what they are talking about. This is not the first time they have pissed off people on their show. Kirk Minihan is a loudmouth dope and Gerry Callahan just follows his lead. The sports media think the athletes owe them something, but if someone says I’d rather not talk about something, the media should respect that, not just from athletes, but everyone

  24. The media treats the guy like a punk, then complains when they get the cold shoulder? What does the media expect? I can see the media feeling like they need to get answers for the viewers/listeners, but to push controversy when they know full well the interviewee is not responding to a certain line of questioning is not going to do anyone a service. The media today seems to be increasingly disrespectful to those the media depends on to do their jobs. Maybe it is time to rethink the.media relationship with the public. As of now, the public has lost trust in the media. If it were my bread and butter, I would do some thinking about what my job is and what I could do to save it.

  25. You can downvote all you want and defend all you want you Patriot cronies/fans/sycophants. Your franchise, coach, QB and team will not be remembered in a good light in history. Period. Your Superbowls are tainted in every which way. You are a joke. 5 asterisks!!!

    ———————————————————————————-

    Nothing legitimate about pressing a player on a professional relationship with trainers, coaches, teammates, or family when the player states “I do not want to get into all that.”

    If you were a real Pats fan, instead of one of the far too many Pats enviers on this site pretending to be a Pats fan, you would understand that simple fact.

  27. I don’t blame Brady. He told these guys three times he did not want to talk about Guerrero. I’d have hung up on them, too, and so would most of you.

  28. The media is annoying, and he’s in the spotlight all of the time… he’s bound to lose his patience at one point or another. Life is too short to suffer fools.

    Still, he’s going to have to learn the right way to tell the media “no comment” in a way that doesn’t make it seem like he’s a Scientologist protecting his magical beans.

    This is so ridiculous! Go back and do your homework and see how many teams which won Super Bowls and NFL championships did things which were illegal. The Niners and Broncos won Super Bowls when they cheated with the cap. Both teams were fined and lost draft picks because of it.
    In the early days of the NFL, the owners did things which were illegal all the time.
    Patriots haters are the only people who cry and whine because the Patriots have been the best organization in the NFL for about the last 15 years. I am a Packers fan and I tip my hat to them. They won those championships because they were the best team. It’s as simple as that.

  30. I got it..Guerrero is really the devil and TB12 sold his soul for 5 rings to him. It explains how a QB with average physical skills turns out to be the GOAT and play into his 40’s.

    On a serious note, that reporter is a disrespectful tool. Don’t blame Brady at all.

  31. And they call Rodgers a diva????

    This guy seems to have a lot of baggage over the years. If he isnt involved in cheating scandals and now this schism, maybe he wouldn’t have to hang up all the time

  32. The GOAT can do whatever he wants because he’s the GOAT. The trainer is not football, its more of a personal thing. We don’t ask Peyton or Eli or Cam about their trainer(s), do we?
    The media is a ratty little brother who is jealous of the envy they get from the people that the media has to serve. So they try to make the professionals look bad any chance they get, especially in radio.

  33. The biggest fraud in the history of sports.

    Largest fine to a team
    Largest fine for a coach
    Loss of 2 1st rd picks and a 4th

    QB suspended 4 games for not cooperating with NFLPA rules
    WR Suspended for PEDS

    Smoke = Fire.

    Tom you will never be the GOAT with the tarnish on your face

  34. Those 2 morning guys on EEI are the Bevis and Butthead of radio. Like many in the media, trying to make themselves the story. Why anyone talks to them or listens to them never ceases to amaze me.

  35. “Brady doesn’t want that to be the story again, but by refusing to talk, he may only bring more attention to Guerrero’s role on the team.”

    ………then stop asking the questions he’s told you he doesn’t want to discuss! It’s not rocket science. If you respect me, I respect you. You screw with me, I’ll screw with you. Simple.

  36. Exactly! But the bigger question is why is this even a story?

    If Cam Newton did this he’d be crucified…

  37. Brady hung up because it’s not in his best interests to get into scandalous conversation that could come back to haunt him in the future. This is of course because Brady’s post-NFL future is in national politics.

  38. Why did your personal trainer fly with th team, why wasn’t he on the sidelines? Why are these questions relevant? It’s good Brady hung up. These guys aren’t there to dig dirt on the Patriots, they are there to talk football with them on local radio.

    Usually if you are so GREAT other people will hype you up.

    Ah, the loudest dog has the tiniest bite 😉

  40. Most sports talk radio hosts are clowns, but that being said. I’ve never understood why he needs his personal trainer to accompany him on road trips. It’s not like he’s gone for a month, or even a week. It’s a few days, Does his agent travel with him as well? Entire thing seems odd.

  41. Questions get asked repeatedly because they need to be answered. Nixon would have remained our president if the reporters didn’t keep digging. Answer the question or labels will rightfully be applied because actions speak louder than words.

  42. Brady is a great QB, not always a great person. Pats fans will of course disagree. I wouldn’t expect less of any fan if this was their QB.

    But, this is part of your deal. Money =Fame = tough questions that you can answer respectably. Just like shaking hands with the winning QB of the super bowl.

    Sorry Pats fans, the golden boy has issues accepting when things in his life go wrong and he has to respond to them. Instead the flight instinct takes over.

    Hate away…

    Hilarious. The PEDs must have been coursing through his veins. Manning is the GOAT.

    ============

    Actually Johnny Unitas is still the GOAT.

  44. While the media can ask some really dumb questions Tammy as an adult needs to act like one without being rude. Seems like Tammy has something to hide…..like PEDs

  45. I think the cheating allegations have clouded peoples thinking. you don’t think there’s anything weird about brady bringing along his “wellness guru” all the time ? seems kinda strange to me. just saying.

  46. So the media created a storyline that Billy B and Alex G got into a major fight.
    These two happen to be – allegedly – TB12’s best buddies, and he’s right in the middle.
    Added to that is the fact whatever he says on the situation will be spun by reporters in every possibly directions.

    Sounds like Brady recognized a no win situation and tried to withdraw from it.
    Well done Tom.

  47. Humm, Thin skinned over your personal trainer getting kicked off the team plane? Then he gets reinstated after tommy boy had a hizzy fit… Suptin smells fishy in cheatriotland… FIRE ROGER !!!!!!!

  48. EEI is pure garbage. I can’t believe the Pats re-upped their affiliation with a pathetic station full of bigoted and egotistical hosts. Between them and the scrub reporters at the Globe, it makes the entire Boston media market look like a circus, which in reality is not the case at all.

  49. Another snowflake getting exposed by the media whilst the rest of the snowflakes whine and complain.

    ================================================================================
    I do not for certain know Mr. Brady’s political affiliation. But he was present at one of Bush’s State of the Union Addresses, which would lead me to believe that he resides a little right of center. So, I am not altogether certain that the term “Snowflake” applies.
    Now, all that said, let’s get back to talking football, and leave the politics out of it.
    If the man does not wish to answer questions R/T a given topic, that is his prerogative. He told them, at least twice, that he wasn’t wanting to discuss the issue. They apparently do not understand the English language, and deserved to be hung up on.

  50. Maybe it’s just me but I could give two fig newtons what Brady eats, how he exercises, what’s hurting or why his trainer is on the plane. The same is true for the half of the team that Alex G is a trainer for as well.

    How many times have the media\fans been curious about the team trainers traveling with the team? Exactly none. This is only a story because Belichick removed Alex Gs ability to travel with the team and now he’s back. Surprisingly, shortly after Brady gets a reworked contract. If anything I’d be more curious about the Brady\Belichick end around than why a personal trainer is\is not traveling with the team or on the sideline.

  51. The question was asked repeatedly because they wanted Brady to hang up; the talking heads at WEEI wanted the radio station to become the “story.”

    They succeeded.

    So what?

    ——————————————————–

    The entire NFL has “embraced” this guy. Guerreo was one of the NFL’s top personal trainers who treated many players on many different teams. Bellichik gave a contract to him initially to keep other teams from using him, and to prevent his players from having to fly to meet with him before he went back to being an independent trainer.

    ____________________________________________________________________________________

    If the question were something like “How has Guerrero helped you stay so young?” or “How has he helped other people on the team”, I’m sure Tom would be happy to answer. When the question is about a controversy, Tom knows perfectly well that speaking about it won’t help that controversy die down. How many times does a guy have to say that he will not talk about a subject before the person asking the questions (a sports radio shock jock, not an actual investigative reporter), stops asking them?

  54. Just like trump protecting his tax returns from the public there is a good reason Brady dont want to talk about his trainer,what can it be?

  55. The lack of respect the media has for the people who employ them (the cutomer and the ahtlete themselves) is an absolute joke in Boston.

    Ted Williams was about ready to ask for a trade or to be let go by the Red Sox in 1939 over it.

    They’re a disgrce and anyone defending it is a loser.

  56. This is a media driven story. Period. We Patriot fans could really care less about Brady and his relationship with Alex Guerrero, never mind about how understandably completely disrespectful he is to the morons on weei that are nothing more than SHOCK JOCKS (primarily Minihane).

  57. Lifelong Pats and obviously huge Brady fan. That said, Tom has pushed Alex to the forefront as part of TB12, therefore these questions are fair and valid.

    You don’t want to go there? Too late. You made him the story last year. Just answer the question and move on.

  58. I get that a player’s personal trainer make have a slightly different approach that doesn’t always jibe with the team’s coaching/training staff; this is especially true with a Patriots organization that is known for have a very specific way of doing things.

    What I don’t get is the media continued treatment as if the subject is scandalous headline news.

    They obviously have differences of opinion regarding Brady’s training and nutrition regimen; they’re working through their differences and have apparently found a happy medium that they can all live with…..and they’ve made it abundantly clear that they’re not interested in discussing or explaining their arrangement, which is well within their rights.

    Why the media continues demanding every minute detail of the team/trainer/player relationship is beyond me.

  59. Lol Patsie fans.

    You can tell that Patsie fans don’t really believe that Brady is innocent by all the lies they tell. You can’t stick to the facts cause they don’t support your frame job conspiracy theory.

  60. Were these the same clowns that repeatedly went after his four year old daughter? It’s hard keeping the media reporters/trolls straight at this point.

Cobrala2 what you seem to be missing is when a host asks about a subject and the person being interviewed says they don’t want to talk about it and then they continue to ask questions on it that is disrespectful.

    Brady is an NFL player, not a public servant. If you ask him questions about football he tries to answer them, but if you ask him questions about why his personal trainer and business partner does or does not fly with the team then he doesn’t need to answer.

  69. Disclaimer: I dislike Brady and Belichick.

    Brady told the reports twice he didn’t want to discuss it, so why keep asking about it. Ask something else.

    Now having said that, he could have handled it better. I remember the media pestering the Jets HC Todd Bowles about the QB after his 2nd season. He politely told them to piss off (something about meeting with the coaches). After they tried the same question rephrased he smiled and said he wasn’t going to fall for that, but nice try. He gave nothing away, and came off the winner. Brady could probably have handled it better, but it’s a minor thing.

    Who cares?

    Can’t wait for Football to start!

  70. I’m not a fam of the media by any stretch. But a 41 year old guy, who looks younger every year, who basically lives with his personal trainer who has a history of questionable practices, methods, and beliefs, and who also trains a teammate that got hit with PED suspension. Throw in the fact that Belicheck basically banned him from traveling with the team, and that ban has been apparently lifted.

    This seems like a story worth questioning. This isn’t the United Nations. It’s a bunch of dopes playing a sport and getting paid millions. They are not above a certain line of questioning, this is entertainment.

  71. The press is out of control lately. Screw them.

    Sure, some radio chuckleheads asking an irrelevant question over and over has a LOT to do with the national press as a whole, doesn’t it?

    Some people in this country wouldn’t know the difference between credible and non-credible media if it crawled inside their faces.

  72. I can’t believe you’re going to make me get on here and defend Tom freaking Brady. If he doesn’t want to answer questions that aren’t related to football, FINE. His job is to play and then sit in front of microphones and talk about his play. That’s it. He’s not obligated to discuss all that extra drama. It’s not his job to give you that info, it’s YOUR job as a journalist to go get it. And he’s not going to make a situation worse by refusing to talk about it. What kind of logic is that? “Say there, Jim. I hear you and your wife are having some marriage difficulties and she’s thinking about taking the kids and leaving. Now I know it’s none of my business, but you’re only going to make the situation worse if you refuse to tell me everything.”

Throw in the fact that Belicheck basically banned him from traveling with the team, and that ban has been apparently lifted.

    This seems like a story worth questioning. This isn’t the United Nations. It’s a bunch of dopes playing a sport and getting paid millions. They are not above a certain line of questioning, this is entertainment.

    —————————

    Just what are these questionable histories and beliefs exactly? This should be a hoot.

  74. It should be noted WEEI gets more media hype/exposure/NFL news stories from having Brady hang up than they would EVER get with the basic weekly interview on their largely nothing show.

    Think back to all of the press they got when they made fun of Brady’s young daughter and Brady told them it’s an unfair topic and also “hung up”.

    Brady DID answer the question on whether Guerrero was on the plane, he answered the second question by saying he wasn’t going to talk about it, they came back again with another and Brady said “No comment. It’s ridiculous. I’m out”. this is not the same as abruptly hanging up.

  75. Pats fan here… If Brady doesn’t want to answer any questions or even talk about Guerrero…easy fix, don’t go into business with him. Can’t have it both ways.

    Maybe it’s just me but I could give two fig newtons what Brady eats, how he exercises, what’s hurting or why his trainer is on the plane. The same is true for the half of the team that Alex G is a trainer for as well.

    How many times have the media\fans been curious about the team trainers traveling with the team? Exactly none. This is only a story because Belichick removed Alex Gs ability to travel with the team and now he’s back. Surprisingly, shortly after Brady gets a reworked contract. If anything I’d be more curious about the Brady\Belichick end around than why a personal trainer is\is not traveling with the team or on the sideline.

    ———————–

    I agree, except you answered your own question.

    1. Brady is spoiled rotten.
    2. GThe media is attempting to drive a wedge between BB and Brady.
    3. Kraft is making sure Brady is happy and BB and Brady found some middleground.

    Clearly, Guerrero would be undermining NE’s own staff and possibly jeopardizing certain people’s employment with the Pats. So, BB was protecting the people he hired. It’s not hard to figure out, which is why this media line of questioning this morning is so out of line. It’s a dead story at this point, but the media keeps trying to kick the door down when it doesn’t need to be kicked down.

    I am a diehard fan of 35+ years with season tickets in my family since 1978. I don’t believe any one player should be above the team, but Brady now is. Brady built his entire career and NOT being that guy, but this proves he has to be that guy. I don’t love it, and quite frankly. there is an enormous amount of pressure on him this year to not start allow in the title game again or in a Super Bowl, assuming they can maybe get back to both of those games.

    Love Brady and all that he is achieved, but the Facebook doc, listening to Giselle, sort of holding the franchise hostage last offseason leaning towards Giselle’s wishes of retirement, blocking a better JimmyG ROi for BB, is admittedly VERY annoying.

    My fellow Pats fans can be honest about it or not.

    I don’t get why all of this could not have waited until he was retired, From the TFB12 Center, to the documentary, to the diet book, etc.

    Not a fan of opening up

    The Trump hat was the first mistake and a collossal blunder. For as much situational awareness and brilliance he ha son the field, he’s horrible at understanding what his moves mean off of it.

  77. Brady and Trump get along so well that maybe Sarah Huckabee could answer questions for Tom and Donald at the same time? Wouldn’t that be adorable?

  78. Most sports talk radio hosts are clowns, but that being said. I’ve never understood why he needs his personal trainer to accompany him on road trips. It’s not like he’s gone for a month, or even a week. It’s a few days, Does his agent travel with him as well? Entire thing seems odd.

    He has many clients on the Patriots, Brady was not his first.

  79. I haven’t listened to WEEI in over a year due to the crappy, unprofessional, ignorant juvenile hacks they employ as ” on air personalities”. Its the same old stale garbage routine…..be rude to guests, argue with each other, insulting callers and abusing their producers/station support staff.

    If they asked Tomlin about the Steelers ongoing history of PEDs and he hung up on him would you have a problem? Oh bad example, thats something that actually happenend.
    If they asked Ben about the rape allegations. Never mind, bad example again
    If they asked Brown about dissing the coach ignoring him when he addresses the team…. nah, another bad example
    If they asked Tomlin about forgetting to coach at the end of last years game…shoot, another bad example
    If they asked Tomlin about a freind or family member and he said he did not wish to discuss the person, and the reporters pressed it so he walked iff, and then in subsequent interviews that happened yet again and he still says he doesnt want to talk about that oerson and they press anyhow so Tomlin walks off, you would be defending that.

    Again, another person without a clue. The NFLPA rules??????????????????? Where did you come with this stupidity?????

  82. Honestly I think these reporters knew he would get ticked off and that was their goal. Its well known from past experiences that he dies not want to discuss that topic. He has made it perfectly clear enough times. He even politely made it clear again on that call….twice. They just wanted to get him mad so that him getting mad could be their story they were otherwise lacking for that day. And any time you intentionally tick a person off to get a reaction you have no business complaining about the reaction.

    It’s not that odd if you caught a bit of Tom vs. Time. The guy stretches/massages Brady before and after every game. It’s part of Brady’s routine and you know how athletes get fussy about their routines.

  85. Kirk of Kirk and Callahan took a photo with Guerrero last year during Superbowl week. He told Kirk there wasn’t a problem with BB, they even high fived after hearing the fake story. Guess Kirk and the media forgot about that. Keep hating. So, many fake stories have been proven false.

    So, why would people who work for WEEI then go ahead and do this today?

    See? It just proves what liars and frauds the media is in the internet age.

  89. It really wasn’t about the questioning at all. His new Iphone X was just delivered and he needed to go and destroy the phone he was currently on.

  90. Seems the young people on here don’t feel a reporter has a right to ask a question more than once. Good. Now never ask Trump about Russia again, ever.

  91. It’s only Monday. Don’t get the Patriot fans so riled up this early in the week. They don’t handle this kind of thing very well.

  92. Even the Police tell you, “you have the right to remain silent”.

    Brady decided to exercise his rights.

    Any questions?

  93. It’s always the questions that people don’t want to answer that have the most power to hurt them. If its a nothing thing than why not answer. The answer is because it makes the person rightfully nervious to go down a road when they know what is waiting at the end in the form of truth.

  94. Was it a show for housewives?

    Come on guys, we don’t care about “what if Guerrero was on the sideline” or “is avocado ice cream good or not” or “how many bottles of water do you drink each day”!

  95. ” . . . but by refusing to talk, [Brady] may only bring more attention to Guerrero’s role on the team.”

    I get it, you’re a sportswriter, so you’re just as interested in poking at the Guerrero topic as the rest of the people in the profession. But you’re dead wrong to say that Brady’s refusal to engage brings more attention. Anybody who follows sports knows that a response, ANY response, will simply lead to more questions, and any more responses will cause an exponential increase in questions. That’s the way sports media work.

    It was in the interest of the media to characterize Brady’s walking away from the presser when asked about Edelman as some big emotional deal, but it wasn’t at all. If you actually watch, he talked for nine minutes. When the Julian question came up, he gave his answer in a calm tone, then politely said goodbye to the press corps the same way he does when he ends other press conferences. Similarly, when he cut short his interview on WEEI today, he was calm and polite.

    Brady is not acting like a diva. He’s behaving politely and professionally. If he doesn’t want to talk about X, Y, or Z, so be it. My suggestion to the members of the media would be that if they think this is such a pressing issue, then do your job. Don’t just sit back in a chair and lob lazy questions. Go out there and dig for answers. Is that so hard?

    Yes the NFLPA agreed to the process of discipline.

  97. Brady can’t answer a simple question about his personal trainer who had previously been banned by his HC? That’s a fair and relevant question. Brady lovers are so delusional. Wow, just Wow. Brady can only be praised by the media, yes? You people are incredible. May you someday find your own personal self-identity separate and apart from Tom Baby.

  98. The only reason this is an issue is because Alex G is on an island. Make Alex G and his alternative methods report to the head athletic trainer (Jim Whalen) and this really shouldn’t be that big of a deal. Players who have two ways to go … traditional or alternative treatments. Game day calls would defer to Whalen or the medical staff. Not too hard to figure out IMHO. This is an issue because Alex G is getting special treatment and sits aside the regular training staff. Normalize it and it’s no longer “special”.

    One thing is for certain … the logs from the old phone would still be ignored.

  100. Let’s be clear on something as well … Brady could have mentioned he had it written in his contract to allow Alex G to travel with the team and be on the sidelines and this still would have been an issue? There was absolutely nothing Brady could have said that would have avoided this. Saying nothing = controversy. Addressing it = controversy.

    Not too hard to see why he hung up IMO.

  101. “I am a Steelers fan, so I have no bone in this fight. What I have never understood about the media is why they don’t tell people topics they will cover before the interview.”
    ____________

    That’s actually very common. Even if specific questions aren’t told to the guest beforehand there is almost always a general outline provided. And a lot of times when guests get the most upset and end interviews early like in this case it stems from surprise questions being asked.

  102. Tammy the king of asterisks, is the biggest fraud in the history of sports. Nothing is legitimate about this cheating feminine voiced clown.

    This tired old thing again? FWIW, the NFL has no right to ask for a player’s personal cell phone. Obviously any player’s cell phone is going to contain information that is personal and outside the business of Football. This is what they would be giving these jackals access to.

    Just look at what happened when Brady’s legal team acquiesced and handed over a pile of his personal emails – they all ended up leaking to the media. Stuff about him being upset at the color of his pool cover and all kinds of other things not related to football. Is it any wonder why a player wouldn’t want to hand over his phone? The NFL league office flat-out cannot be trusted with anything, let alone personal info. They are truly incompetent buffoons.

    Why would anyone “hate” Brady? It’s one thing to be annoyed by he and the team blasting yours for years and his marrying a model, the money, etc, etc, but to “hate” what people always say is one of the nicest guys thet’ve ever met?

    Disturbing.

    Brady says this is not up for discussion
    then it is not up for discussion, period

    So you believe that an employee should be harrassed in the workplace? I am sorry, but I don’t believe you believe that.

  110. Here’s the problem: Brady wrote a book about how he takes care of himself and Guerrero plays a huge role in that. Brady covered some of this in his ‘Tom versus time” series and has spoken at length in various interviews about it as well, including with the same host from today’s interaction. Now that he was given the platform to market himself he doesn’t want to answer the tough questions.Brady is the primary reason Guerrero is a topic of conversation, he’s going to have a deal with questions.

  113. Oh geez, I don’t know, like he peddled a water that claimed it prevented concussions, peddled a supplement that claimed to cure cancer. He was claiming he was a doctor and the FTC barred him from ever making that claim again.

Seems like the sports journalists are the babies who can’t take no for an answer.

  121. Media is out of control and disrespectful any more. He said I’m not talking about it twice! They dont care about the question they care about being a reaction so they have a story.

  122. Tom Brady is the greatest player in NFL history. As such he deserves respect from all members of the media. It is a privilege for a reporter to ask him a question and when that privilege is abused, Tom is 100% correct to shut the interview down. He is focused on the season ahead and doesn’t have time for idiots.

  123. Nothing legitimate about pressing a player on a professional relationship with trainers, coaches, teammates, or family when the player states “I do not want to get into all that.”

    If you were a real Pats fan, instead of one of the far too many Pats enviers on this site pretending to be a Pats fan, you would understand that simple fact.
    ****************
    Puhhh-LEEEZZZZ. Pats fans. Keep Drinking the Kool Aid. Brady did this to himself! Remember the TB12 Documentary? He was pumping up now all of a sudden he has nothing to say.

He’s 40 years old and still playing at near the top of his game and isn’t be paid like it. Basically he’s floating the salaries of his teammates (when you consider the cap). His salary should enable his wife and kids to be on that flight as well. He’s the GOAT and I’m a Raider fan.

  126. This is the new media norm to have zero respect. Brady told him what was up and he didn’t stop. I’ve transisioned from being anti Brady to pro Brady the more of this stuff that goes down. He doesn’t want to be on that interview anyways.

  127. What qualifications do you need to be a sports radio talk host?

    I have no love for Brady but sports media has some of the lowest of the low. They do or say anything for a click or coverage.

  130. What is it about,”no means no”, that the media doesn’t understand?!!
    And, I’m a Dolphin fan..

  131. All the amateur detectives here are amusing.

    It’s pretty simple, really. The entire Guerrero situation is made up of two parts: 1) Brady’s own working relationship with Guerrero, and 2) the personal arrangement/agreement/boundaries for Guerrero’s presence/activity with the team.

    The latter involves personal opinions/discussions/agreements between Brady and Belichick. Of course that’s not something Brady would want to go into in a public forum, because it’s personal business and would be speaking for someone else (Belichick).

    The media’s interest is for soap-opera reasons. Brady was gracious enough in stating that he wasn’t going to go into it while still continuing with the interview. Once an interviewer shows you they’re not going to respect your wishes, they are declaring that they are not going to respect you. Don’t see any issue with ending an interview under those circumstances.

  132. Just answer the question honestly Tom. You all by yourself have created this mess with the media. Act your age instead of acting like your a spoiled 12 year old. Personally I find Brady’s relationship with his trainer very odd.

    So what would you call the Brady/Belichick/Guerrero relationship?

    You might want to look up the definition of schism.

  141. In 2012 Brady’s arm looked bad. He lost in the playoffs at home on a windy day (18mph) when he just couldn’t rip the ball through the wind. Many passes FLUTTERED out of bounds. Joe Flacco could rip it through the wind and the Ravens won 23-13. The leagues #1 offense put up 13 points, at home in a playoff game that Brady went 29/54 and threw two picks.

    Fast forward 6 years. Brady’s arm is now stronger. Not just stronger it actually looks better than ever.

    You do the math.

  142. Another dust-up over Brady about absolutely nothing. After the ratings bonanza-turned-sham that was Deflategate, reporters will try anything to get a rise. Let the season begin already!

    ===========================
    Ok let’s do the math …

    How about we start with the QB that had the longest pass for that day. I’ll give you a hint … his jersey number isn’t number 5.

    It couldn’t possibly be the Ravens just played better. Or the fact the Patriots simply didn’t have an answer when Talib left the game for good in the first quarter. Or the fact that Brady just didn’t play well. Nope. Brady simply had a weak arm back in 2012 and now it’s stronger in 2018. Despite Brady having the longest completion of the game. Got it.

    I wouldn’t stray too far from a calculator.
