In the wake of Tom Brady’s season ending knee surgery, anti-Tom Brady sentiment is at an all time high. George Lampman has created a tshirt for the “Bernard Pollard Fan Club”. Pollard is the Chiefs safety whose hit injured Brady’s knee.
Some people are outraged by the thoughtless attempt to cash in on Brady’s injury, others think it’s brilliant and funny. In a conversation with CBS’s Pete Prisco Lampman concedes that it is crass, but he claims there are people willing to shell out the $19.99 for the tshirt so he’s going to print and sell them.
Even though I’m a Michigan guy, I’m not a Brady fan. It’s too bad that he got hurt. I don’t feel too bad for the Patriots. They’re my least favorite NFL team, and it’s not even close. I would never wish an injury on someone, and I’m sorry that he is in pain, but like Bill Belichick said, Brady is one player on one side of the ball. If the Patriots go down because of one player, the Belichick should be fired immediately.
