Former NFL star Shannon Sharpe says Tom Brady is getting a racial pass just because he is white. After losing in the Super Bowl LII, Brady refused to shake the hands of Nick Foles. Last week, Brady was asked about that. “I always try to be a good sport,” Brady claimed.
However, Sharpe had none of Brady's claim. “There’s a lot of things that he does that gets written off as ‘that’s passion, that’s competitiveness.’ That’s bulljive!” Sharpe argued on Undisputed.
“And we would not let that fly had Cam Newton, or Lamar Jackson, or Kyler Murray runs to the opposing sideline and tells a coach ‘go bleep yourself.’” “You threw me a curveball there,” Skip Bayless responded to Sharpe.
“You just went racial. Are you saying he’s getting a racial pass just because he’s White?”
Sharpe: Brady is getting a pass only because he is white
“Of course,” Sharpe answered. “There’s no possible way that a Black quarterback can do some of the things that Tom Brady did and get away with it."
Brady was recently ripped by former teammate Antonio Brown. “In the end, it’s a great achievement to get the two seed,” said Brady, who finished with a career-high 5,316 passing yards as he enters his 19th postseason.
“To me, a friend is someone who’s got your back,” Brown said on Friday’s episode of the ‘Full Send Podcast.’ “Not everybody in sports is going to be your friend. Tom Brady’s my friend why? Because I’m a good football player.
He needs me to play football. People have different meanings of what friendship is. "You can’t really expect anyone to be your friend in the business of football. In the business of football, our business is winning.
Brady and I like winning. We have that in common. That’s what makes me want to be around him, makes us jell, makes us great. I’m out here getting prove-it contracts, you say you’re my friend, I shouldn’t be playing on that type of deal when I came here and we won a Super Bowl”.
He added: “If Tom Brady is my boy why am I playing for an earnest salary?” A few days ago, Brown broke his silence on Brady and tried to downplay his previous comments. “Listen, I love Tom. That’s my guy.
Don’t get it twisted. A lot of words were taken out of substance. Tom is one of my true friends in the midst of adversity that was there for me, so don’t get it twisted about nothing with Tom Brady," Brown told TMZ.
“He’s a G.O.A.T. Great player. Great teammate”.
