It’s unlikely New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady runs his official Facebook page. Whether he posts personally or not, the Brady brand is doing some trolling.
A picture was posted on Saturday night of Brady spiking a football in the snow, with dejected Raiders in the background. The caption: “Tomorrow is my 6th time playing the Raiders. What’s your favorite Raiders I know mine…”
Yup, you guess it. It’s a picture of the infamous “Tuck Rule” game.
Brady has 2.4 million Facebook likes, and word of the harsh reminder spread quickly through Raider Nation on the eve of a Sunday’s game against New England at Gilette Stadium.
For those who don’t recall, defensive back Charles Woodson strip sacked Brady late in the 2001 AFC divisional playoffs. The Raiders recovered the forced fumble that would’ve sealed victory, but the call was later called an incomplete pass by officials using an obscure rule. The Patriots won that game 16-13 in overtime and went on to win the Super Bowl.
Raiders fans still haven’t forgotten that difficult loss, which was played in the cold and snow. Brady’s people seem to be rubbing it in a bit, considering the Silver and Black are 14.5-point underdogs heading into Sunday.
