Parents just don't understand, FCC logs complaints over Tom Brady's dirty mouth
When the Patriots lost to the Green Bay Packers on Nov 30th, CBS cameras caught Tom Brady cussing up a storm. Later that week Brady talked about his affinity for the f-word and said to blame CBS and NBC for putting on the air.
Well at least three families took that literally and filed complaints with the FCC over the airing of Brady's dirty mouth.
My 6-year-old children know how to read lips even if there is no sound. So why during the telecast is CBS going out of their way with 1:53 minute left in the first quarter between the Patriots and the Packers game to show Tom Brady screaming the F word on national TV?" an Indianapolis parent complained to the FCC.
Another person complained that keeping "the camera on Tom Brady as he kept yelling was uncalled for."
"Just because there was no sound, it was clear enough to everyone. It was almost as if the announcers got away with it, because they did not actually say it. Very unprofessional," wrote the parent of a 10-year-old boy.
A little quick thinking on these parents part by saying he was just screaming "vacuum" and this could have all been avoided. But alas, here we are. Talking about complaints after seeing a professional athlete screaming a profanity on the sideline after they just lost a hard fought game.
Here's an update ... Football is an emotional, violent game played in a high-stakes environment by packs of alpha males. Bad words are used.

The squeaky wheel always gets the cheese. Or maybe its oil. Whichever one it is you can expect less close ups when Brady gets mad.
Me? well i thought you'd never ask. well i'm around 25 years old, give or take, i mean the only way to tell for sure is to cut me open and count my rings but for now i'm content to say i'm 25. i'm freakin funny, and if you disagree with me i will stab you in the jaw. i love to just chill with my friends, they are awesome, they laugh at my jokes, sure, it took some jaw stabbing but hey its not always easy. i haven't quite mastered the whole think before you speak program, apparently, if you start a sentence with "now don't take this the wrong way" people still take it the wrong way. i know, i know, it doesn't make any sense to me either, but it happens. twice while i was fishing, i've seen beavers with paws the size of frying pans that could rip a mans face right off! oh and i hate bears, its just terrible what happened to those two hikers from the czech republic. terrible. i really like to go fourwheeling, i like to work on cars but i'm way to lazy to actually do it. i cant wait to go snowboarding this winter, i'm pretty good, steve once said i looked like a train wreck, he's borderline pro, so that really made my day. oh and once i had a dream.
