          Perhaps Brady doesn't need to publisize how much charity work he does.
    • Trip to Ghana and Uganda to support AIDS victims in Africa.  http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/496697/tom_bradys_invhttp://www.associatedcontent.com/article/496697/tom_bradys_involvement_with_charities.html?cat=48 
    • Actively supports,as honorary chairman, the "Best Buddies" organisation. Best Buddies provides friendship and job opportunities to people who have intellectual disabilities http://jollypeople.com/blog/2009/05/31/tom-brady-best-buddies/
    •  People who publisize how generous they are to charities are in the business of self promotion,not charity.
    •  Your comments about Republican elitists not providing enough charitable support to the community are quite simply ignorant. Was it not the democratic hero of the green revolution,Al Gore, who saw his net worth go from $2 million in 2002 to $120 million in 2008 suckering people to contribute to his crusade against climate change? Nice scam Al!
    • Democratic state senator Efrain Gonzalez' use of $423,000 worth of charity funds to purchase a cigar making company in the Dominican Republic,jewelry and his daughters college tuition really showed the Republican elitists how shameful they are for not contributing to his "charity".
    • Concerning your child out of wedlock comment;Where's Obama's muslim father? I guess those evil Republicans are behind his shadowy existence.
    • Would you like to read about the feelings of the "Honorable" Democratic conressional Rep. John Murtha on how charities should work? http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/06/02/cbsnews_investigates/main5057122.shtml?source=RSSattr=HOME_5057122   How does a charity receive a $45 million defense contract and claim the same tax exempt status as the Salvation Army? Good one Mr. Murtha.

    Lets keep politics out of this, there is enough corruption on both sides to go around. I can remember when suit coats were mandatory for teams travelling. I can't criticisize Brady for being well dressed and stylish as long as he is the same hungry QB on the field.

    I'm sure in your liberal progressive little world, anything that exudes professionalism and correct attire is viewed as republican-elitist.  Remember, all is not lost, it's never tool late to get a clue. . . .

    Brady said his guards at his wedding did not have guns, and nobody shot at anyone.  But reporters would not lie, would they?  Right!
    Brady is the face of the Patriots, and if he wants to wear a suit so he looks good when he gets to London, who cares?  Would you rather he look grungy?

    Are you kidding me?  Having children out of wedlock is against everything the GOP stands for?  HAHAHA.  The GOP says what they think constituents want to hear, and then they go out and have affairs, here and even in Argentina, have sex with men in bathrooms, have children out of wedlock themselves, and then stand on TV with their wives holding their hands asking for forgiveness.  What about Palin, running for 2nd highest office in the land.  The Queen of hypocrisy.  Her daughter pregnant out of wedlock, and very much underage.  Yet she spouts the right things out of her mouth, and her idiot supporters believe and forgive.  Get real.

    Choir boy
     Here is some news for ya. One of the Pats benefits to the players is the awarding of 12 prime parking spots at the stadium. They get these spots based on how much time they put in at the complex during the off season. Tom Brady has owned the nr1 spot for years.

    Tuesady's are the league mandated off day's for the players. On his day off Tom Brady meets regularly with Coach Belichick to talk over a myriad of things including upcoming schedules previous games the upcoming game plan.

    So your comment about him to corporate is freakin nonsense. So what if he wears a suit on the team plane or gets to reap the benefits of his hard work.

    (Just imagine if he wore a pink tie, then he'd be stirring multiple pots at once.)

    There are 1696 NFL players among 304 million Americans. They are, by definition, elite athletes and they are an extension of the NFL and their respective teams' brands. I'm no Giants fan, but I do admire the fact they wear suits to games. As Kmax suggests, that's one throwback I'd love to see reappear...

    I don't really know why I even continued reading this thread but I did. Wearing a suit is MANDATORY for team travel and I was surprised when I saw others in sweatsuits and T-shirts. BB must have told them they could because of the duration of the flight. TB is nothing but class on and off the field and if he gets a little fashion help from his top model girlfriend so what!

    Keep it on the field, just because they're playing in England doesn't make it OK to take posts/conversation into personal lives like they do.

    Re: Is Brady just a bit too corporate or elitist lately?

    my thoughts have already been echoed, but this thread was so silly I had to comment.

    1st off even IF Brady was an "Elitist", he's one of the best players in the league, and has kept a stellar image on the field.  He's competitive and extremely hardworking, if the average american can't relate to that, well then they have the issue-not tom.  The guy makes tons of money and is married to a supermodel, is he average in that regard? Hell no, but that's not a bad thing, since when did being successful become un-american or anti-football?? Isn't that at the heart of competition?  Football has a blue collar tradition, which is fantastic, but if people can't appreciate the work that Tom Brady puts in, they're not true fans.  I could care less how many 0's are at the end of his game check, he doesn't wind up in jail, takes care of his family (including his child, and is by all accounts a Pro's pro.  Case closed here.


    -Good god, reading the OP's "corporate republican attitude" literally made me laugh out loud, c'mon bud that's just childish.  It would be like me saying Barney Frank has a "hippie tree hugging liberal attitude".  I hope this thread doesn't turn into a political one so i'll stop, but Tom Brady has every right to celebrate his success and hard work in a respectful and courteous manner.

    I haven't read all the posts except the first two or three, but Ill say this. Anyone who can play like he can in the snot is hardly too corporate or elitist on the field, and that's all that matters. That's blue-collar play at its best. Who cares what somebody does in their private life. I'm not sure Peyton can play like that in the snow so I'd hardly call him a blue-collar player.

    I wish I could be a SB MVP, one of the game's best-ever QB's, adored by beautiful women worldwide, the envy of every red-blooded guy, play comeback football in thriller situations, known to be one of the all-time clutch players, and have more money than I need.

    I'm not that guy. Tom Brady is...and as far as I'm concerned he can wear a suit any damn time he pleases to show that success is a good thing.

    Sheesh.

    Re: Is Brady too corporate or elitist lately?

    Dumbest post of the year, congrats, you edged out stiff competition. You idealize critical thinking skills - now apply them to stuff that matters. One thing you missed is that Peyton still shills for many more products than Brady does, who is much more selective about what he endorses. And what is more corporate than shilling for products? But do Manning's teammates care about that? Of course not. 

    Brady continues to get hailed for his work ethic inside the locker room - he busted it to recover from his knee surgery. And you want to nitpick on an area, his personal life, where you lack any kind of good information to make a real judgement. For all I know Brady is a huge tool in his own life, but since I don't have that info, and since it doesn't impact on field performance, who cares? Joe Montana, who some hail as the best QB ever and certainly is one of the "clutchest" in the post season, always struck me as kind of arrogant in his interviews. Who cares what I think? Whether it's true or not it clearly didn't impact anything that matters. 

    If you want to whine about something maybe you can head over to the Red Sox part of this forum where some trolls are feeling sorry for themselves over the early exit from the postseason.

    Whenever I write a post on B.com, I always look it over so see if it makes sense or if it could be criticized of being for lack of a better word - stupid. That's something that you may want to ask yourself. 

    I don't care and I'm sure a lot of fellow posters here aren't concerned what Tom Brady wears. I think you ought to be asking yourself why you're paying so much attention to what another man is wearing. 
    As for the elitist and corporate comments, please refer back to my opening statement.

    Tom Brady is paid to win football games while providing a positive representation of the Patriots organization.  It's safe to say that he does both at a high level, the rest is irrelevant.......
