Tom Brady: ‘If Anyone on My Team Kneels, I Quit’

"I respect why people are doing what they are doing."

The league itself may have shown its opposition to patriotism through their new rules that will allow kneeling during our national anthem, but Roger Goodell does not speak for everyone in the league. Already, several teams have indicated they will not allow kneeling from their players. They’ve threatened to take players who do so off the roster or to fine them. Now, players themselves are speaking up.

Tom Brady, former quarterback of the New England Patriots, and multiple Super Bowl winner is known for his love of America. The fact that he started his career with the Patriots is very fitting. Now he has moved on to a new team in Tampa Bay, but his pro-America, pro-Trump attitude has not changed.

Brady announced to team ownership and to his teammates his thoughts on the whole kneeling controversy. The team’s co-owner, Joe Barron, was so moved by Brady‘s enthusiasm that he recorded the whole speech he gave in the locker room that day:

“Everybody here knows how I feel about this country. We are the luckiest people on earth to live here and we should be showing gratitude for it every single day.

This brings me to kneeling for our flag and our anthem. You can probably guess that I’m not for it. It’s an insult to our soldiers, to our veterans, to our President, and to every single citizen who does what they can do every single day to make this country as great as it is. It’s a disgrace and, as far as I’m concerned, an act of treason.

I won’t stand for it. I won’t stand for your kneeling. Let me be perfectly clear, if anybody on this team kneels, I walk. I will be off the field and out the door in an instant. Don’t test me.

And remember, I won six Super Bowls. I am the best. You guys are nothing without me. N-O-T-H-I-N-G. I AM THIS TEAM.”

Brady may sound arrogant to some, but not us. Real Americans know they are capable of anything. His confident words once again prove that he belongs.

  1. This is a SATIRE site but Twitter people are believing it and trashing Brady. He did not say this. Tom is apolitical, not pro- or anti- anyone or any issue. He is football & family 24/7. Trashing a person with lies is a terrible thing to do. The website should apologize & remove this. And make SATIRE clearly visible at the beginning of any article. There is too much ugliness already in the world, so stop.

  2. Most of us know it’s satire. I didn’t realize people on twitter took this seriously. I love Tom Brady and all he stands for. I hope people realize he didn’t say this. It’s pretty obvious at the end of the article with that last bit that the team is nothing without him. He would never say that and he would never believe that. He’s a team player. Hope you can get that out there.
