Tom Brady On His In-Game Swearing: ‘Blame CBS And NBC For Putting It On TV’


December 8, 2014

In the heat of the moment, Tom Brady has a pottymouth.

Brady has been clickbait material for blogs and Twitter users in recent weeks when cameras have caught him ranting and raving on the sidelines, dropping F-bombs left and right. The most recent example came Sunday night when the New England Patriots quarterback stomped up and down the sideline, cursing like a sailor in an attempt to get his team going.

The cameras caught it all, and Brady’s unsavory word choice was clear, even to the most novice of lip readers. Brady admitted Monday in a weekly interview with WEEI’s “Dennis and Callahan” show that while maybe he’d like to clean up the language, it’s not really his fault it gets shown on national TV.

“I wish I did have a better mouth out there at times, but there?s nothing that quite expresses the way I feel like that word,” Brady said Monday morning on WEEI. ?It is, it is (a great word), especially in the heat of the moment. ? Blame CBS and NBC for putting it on TV. Don?t blame me.

“We?re not choirboys, I know that. You bring us up to a certain level of intensity to the game, you?re job is to go out there and physically, emotionally, mentally dominate the game. You don?t do that at church on Sunday. You’ve got to go to the football field for that.”

Brady and Patriots beat the San Diego Chargers on Sunday night in front of an amped-up Qualcomm Stadium crowd that featured plenty of Patriots fans. Brady was one of the handful of Patriots who appreciated the support in supposed enemy territory.

“I ran out for pregame warmups and everyone was going crazy. I couldn?t believe it,” Brady told WEEI. “All the fans were right behind our bench. Just throughout the game, we would make big plays on either defense or offense, and the crowd would be just going crazy. The way our fans supported us and traveled out there to make that trip, it was pretty cool to see. I?ve never seen anything like that.”
