Default Media speculation about baby bothers Brady

On the subject of bad conduct by QBs not named Vick, All-Pro narcissist Tom Brady apparently does not like the nicks to his image created by fathering a child out of wedlock.

Brady, 29, is expecting his first child with actress Bridget Moynahan, whom he broke up with in December. Brady is now dating model Gisele Bundchen. "It doesn't affect anyone but me anyway, so why is it a big deal?" Brady said, according to Details magazine.

Maybe because it might help a child to be raised by two parents?

With regard to moving on from the mother of his child to his latest squeeze

"I'm attracted to women who are smart and funny and ambitious and have lives of their own and great families. Isn't that what attracts anyone?" he said.


http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18922873/

What a tool. No indication as to whether there was any follow-up from Tom Terrific on how his conduct will enhance the great family life of his child.

I am no Vick fan, but why Vick legitimately gets trashed while Brady's conduct is passed off as a lifestyle choice raises some interesting questions about double standards for behavior by white and black QBs.

Maybe because it truly is no-one elses business but Bridget and Tom's?

I like a laugh at Brady's escapades (the ridiculous camp photoshoots etc etc) as the next man, but even putting him in the same paragraph as Vick does him a great dis-service.

So he is going to have a child out of wedlock, which is far from ideal, but plenty of people go through the same situation without it becoming a national news story.

And yeah, I know people like to throw the 'Tom Terrific' thing back in his face - I guess thats his fault for winning 3 rings so early in his career.

In the interests of fairness i'll include a comment from the article that portrays Tom in a more human light (to compensate for the sub-human comparison with Vick)

Quote:
"I want to prepare for it the way I do everything else in my life," Brady said, Details reported. "I make lists. I make plans. But being a father is different. I think that people go into it and find out, holy (bleep), I have no control."
Im surprised at you bringing the subject of race into this, Dan - if people want to condemn young black men for having children outside marriage thats their lookout - I don't see why Tom should have to answer for peoples racial prejudices.

That was pretty 'ESPN' I have to say - inflaming the situation with an element that plainly doesn't exist.

This another example of the media potraying someone in an unrealistic way and then looking to knock them down - just like the All-Star Angel All-round Good Guy Patriots.

Holding Tom to this lame, unasked for Mr. Perfect standard is wrong but hardly surprising.

Vick may have committed a crime. Having an "illegitimate" child is no longer newsworthy. I don't think its a black/ white QB issue.

Vick: Fights dogs = Against the law

Brady: Gets around = Own choice, no one else's business.

Bottom line. Pretty sad you had to bring race into it.

Nice try to accuse me of playing the race card. My point is that if Brady was black he would be getting a lot more heat on this - Sports Illustrated ran a cover story several years ago on NBA players having kids out of wedlock - not many fair haired jocks in that story. Is that racist - you betcha - but don't blame me for pointing it out.

Brady needs to take the poison with the gift of celebrity - if he plays off his pubic image to get endorsement deals then he cannot claim it is a private matter when he is in the public eye for some "escapade" other than throwing TD passes or posing for GQ.

So far Vick has been proven to have carried a false water bottle through a airport checkpoint, missed a flight to DC and probably attended a dogfight - Brady has fathered a kid out of wedlock and is trying to portray himself as the victim. Based on what is proven fact as opposed to speculation I have no problem putting the sainted Tom Brady in the same paragraph as Vick.

If it is your own business then why give an interview to Details about it?

LITP - this was not in your post until you edited it, so i will reply here

Assuming his-ex did not pull the goalie on him without his knowledge, walk me through what part of having a child and then leaving the mother involved preparing for this like everything else in his life?

And "sub-human comparison to Vick?"

WTH does this even matter at all? Do you really hate Brady that much.

This Bridgette sounds like a real swell girl. She might be an actress, but she's no dummy. Poor Tom, probably never saw it coming. This could end up being her best role yet.

Hey - it is the offseason and Brady's story is getting play on MSNBC.com

But having been accused of playing the race card by LITP and you (at least you did not accuse me of being a racist this time like you did several months ago when we exchanged posts on the NFL's diversity rule) I do not think it was inappropriate to respond to LITP's post.
