|Ed Reed and Tom Brady|
Brady was running with the ball, but instead of take a hit, slide to stop the play and to stop any contact. While he was sliding, Brady clearly intentionally straightened his leg and flashed his spikes into Reed's leg and hip. In order to avoid Brady, Reed jumped over the sliding, kicking quarterback and crashed into the ground. Reed thinks he suffered a torn larbum on the play. The labrum is part of the shoulder. The refs didn't flag Brady on the play. (How much you wanna bet they would have flagged the defender if this would have happened the other way around)
Brady was fined $10,000 by the league, about the amount of money he made during the play. It's not Brady's fault that the media thinks he's a god, probably because they all want their son's to be just like him. But this play was completely unnecessary. Reed had no intention of hitting Brady. What it showed was the a-hole side of Brady, one we now can prove the media will ignore in order to keep people from seeing it.
