The Patriots have gone from CIA level secrecy to a knitting circle in terms of public leaks over the past year. The power struggle soap opera between Tom Brady and Bill Belichick has devolved from an in-season expos, to Brady sending repeated signals in the offseason that Bill Belichick isn’t the boss of him.
Today, during a Q&A at the Milken Institute Global Conference by his hand selected personal interviewer Jim Gray, Brady continued to stir the pot with more comments that he knew where sure to fuel the rumor mill.
When asked by Gray if he felt appreciated by the organization considering all that he’s achieved, Brady responded, “I plead the fifth.”
When Gray followed up by asking Brady if he was happy at work, Tom replied, “I have my moments.”
Coming on the heels of Gisele’s similar comments from Tom vs. Time, and a number of other public affronts to Belichick during the offseason, these remarks are the latest salvo in Brady’s revolt against Bill’s dictatorship. Tom’s barely trying to hide it here.
Vegas still has the Patriots set to win the most games of any team in the NFL next season, so maybe none of will matter in the end.
The video from the conference was posted by Boston area sports journalist Tom Curran. It’s not much to look at, but you can hear Brady’s answers loud and clear.
