Tom Brady skipped the Patriots' White House trip this year. Every year the Super Bowl champs are invited to meet the President. He claimed his family time is too valuable. Was he being disrespectful? Racist? I always defend Brady from the "haters," but this time they may be right. No matter the motivation (political, family etc.), he is going to be vilified for it. I just believe that anytime you can go to the White House it's important because in this era of political division, some levity is needed.

For me, it would have been an honor to have been invited to White House when George W. Bush was president. But being invited to the White House with Obama as its resident ....
For some reason I feel the urge to perhaps deceive you, and state that I may concur with your fish bait...
Good point. Why not invite the President over to his new place?
That was one of the most reasonable takes I've heard on this issue. I guess you have to take someone at their word until there is evidence to the contrary. Thx.
I guess my own views are closest to yours. I'm also thinking about good PR vs. bad PR. So much of being a leader is just showing up.
Strong take, feenix. Looking at the way the press is treating Brady, it sounds like they do think the President is a king. Sad.
The hatred of Brady is clearly driven by jealously. This is much ado about nothing. He's the greatest of all time and people just need to acknowledge that; then move on. Now, he should have just admitted to the attempted deflation and be done.
CJ.....I agree with you totally and happy you stood up for Tom....However, I can't imagine "admitting" to something you are NOT guilty of! The apology needs to come from those who wrongfully accused him!
