Tom Brady Ignores Suzy Kolber
When ESPN cut to Kolber after the game, Brady was exchanging post-game handshakes. Kolber put her hand on Brady's arm and made clear that she wanted to interview him, but Brady just ignored her, and then said, "I'm going in," and started to jog to the locker room.
At that point Kolber started to jog alongside him and continue to question Brady, who said twice that he couldn't hear her. Brady never did stop to talk to her, but he did slow down from a jog to a walk long enough to say of the game, "It's not how we drew it up, but I'll take it. We did a lot of things poorly, but I'm glad we got the win."
And with that quote, the interview was over. I realize that NFL players often view interviews as an annoyance, but ESPN pays the NFL billions of dollars, and that's the reason the Patriots pay Brady tens of millions of dollars, and so Brady ought to just suck it up and give Kolber 15 seconds of his undivided attention when she asks for it. At the end of a great game featuring a great Brady comeback, Brady acted like a jerk.
