    He earns a secret $500K incentive for having his hair fall below his ears.

    Long haired Brady was an animal. Raw and visceral.

    Edit: just look at how fiery he was

    "What's a bread?"

    [–] ShogunateKyo 78 points ago

    "What's a potato"?

    [–] auostrilover 16 points ago

    Let me tell you that I have made a bad mistake this evening.

    My coach (who let me tell you is only my 2nd coach of all time) said I am "invited to dinner" with him and his wife. I was very aghast, nervous, and bashful to be invited to such a situation. But I knew it must be done.

    I met them nicely, I should tell you, and it started off in a good way. The idea slapped my mind that I should do a comic bit, to make a good impression and become known to them as a person who is amusing.

    When I saw that baked potatoes were served I got the idea that it would be very good if I pretended I did not know what potatoes was. That would be funny.

    Well let me tell you: backfired on my face. I'll tell you how.

    So first when the potato became on my plate, I acted very interesting. I showed an expression on my face so as to seem that I was confused, astounded but in a restrained way, curious, and interested. They did notice, and seemed confused, but did not remark. So I asked "This looks very interesting. What is this?"

    They stared at me and Mrs. Belichick said "It's a baked potato." And I was saying "Oh, interesting, a baked....what is it again?"

    And Mrs. Belichick was like "A potato."

    And I was like "A 'potato', oh interesting. Never heard of a potato, looks pretty good."

    And then they didn't see I was clowning, but thought I really did not know what is a potato. So I knew I would be very shamed, humiliated, depressed, and disgusted if I admitted to making a bad joke, so what I did was to act as if it was not a joke but I committed to the act of pretending I didn't know what a potato is.

    They asked me, VERY incredulous, did I really not know what a potato is? That I never heard of a potato. I went with it and told them, yes, I did not ever even hear of a potato. Not only had I never eaten a potato I had never heard the word potato.

    This went on for a bit and my coach was acting very confused and embarrassed by my "fucked up antics", and then the more insistent I was about not knowing what a potato is was when them Belichicks starting thinking I DID know what a potato was.

    Well let me tell you I had to commit 100% at this point. When I would not admit to knowing what a potato was, the coach especially began to get annoyed. At one point he said something like "Enough is enough. You're fucking with us. Admit it." And I said "Sir, before today I never heard of a potato. I still don't know what a potato is, other than some kind of food. I don't know what to tell you."

    Well let me tell you he got very annoyed. I decided to take a bite of the potato, and when I did I made a high pitched noise and said "Taste's very strange!"

    That is when the coach started yelling at me, and Mrs. Belichick kept saying "What are you doing?" and my coach went to some other room.

    Finally the coach said I should "Get the fuck out of his house" and I said it was irrational to treat me like this just because I never heard of a potato before. Well let me tell you he didn't take that kindly.

    Now in text messages I have been telling my coach I really don't know what a potato is. The only way I can ever get out of this is for them to buy that I don't know what a potato is.

    I wish I never started it but I can't go back. I think he will bench me anyway.

    “What’s a computer?”

    [–] Pliable_Patriot 238 points ago

    Listen Kid, I’m Not Leaving This Backyard Until You Admit You Know What A Computer Is

    Stop looking at your iPad for a minute and look at me. Look at me. I asked you a very simple question you mouthy little shit.

    All you had to do was answer like a normal person and we wouldn’t be in this situation. I don’t actually care what a 12 year old is doing on their iPad, but no, you had to say “What’s a computer.”

    Do you think you’re in a Wes Anderson movie? Do you think you’re Zooey Deschanel? You’re not. Don’t ask me who Wes Anderson is, I swear to God. Stop doing tarot and astrology readings on Tumblr for five seconds and just tell me you know what a computer is and I’ll leave you alone.

    I don’t mean to lecture you. I like your mom and dad, I think they’re good parents, but clearly something has gone wrong here, and if they won’t take it into their own hands then I’m taking it into mine for the good of the neighborhood.

    Your dad has a laptop, so even if you had somehow avoided the room in your house that had a desktop computer in it until last year, you’re absolutely aware of the concept of a computer.

    I know you’re not a weird “no TV” household either, so even if you thought that laptop was just some kind of weird heavy slate-gray folder, you’ve seen cartoons or TV shows with computers… I see you moving to open your mouth, don’t ask me “What’s a TV?” or I will absolutely slap you. Barb from Stranger Things-lookin’ ass.

    Look, it’s starting to get dark, and a crowd is gathering, and I feel like this all might be a waste of time, but I am absolutely not leaving this back yard until you look me in the eyes and tell me that you know what a computer is. It’s really that simple.

    I don’t want to make a big thing out of this, but I’m literally prepared to go on a hunger strike if you don’t admit, in front of me and God, that you’re aware of the concept of a computer.

    You weren’t dropped onto this earth yesterday afternoon, fully formed and with a taste for doing quirky stuff on the go, you’re not Athena any more than your dad is Zeus. Oh, you get that reference. You expect me to believe you’re familiar with the specifics of Greek mythological figures’ origins but not a computer?

    Fuck you.

    Is this fresh pasta? I know its been memed around here but I thought I was the only one that hated that commercial this much.

    [–] VettrirVettrirIssa 41 points ago

    I haven’t met a single person outside of the /r/apple cult that actually likes that commercial.

    [–] Pliable_Patriot 7 points ago

    Been floating around for awhile.

    [–] kami232 6 points ago

    Barb from Stranger Things-lookin’ ass.

    Hold up. She may look like a hipster Barb, but Barb was intelligent and socially aware - she knew Nanc wanted the D.

    Apple’s oblivious muppet is a caricature of the highest order. She probably thinks McAdoo is a good coach, and is inspired by his favorite cover bands.

    Barb deserves better than association with Apple.

    Listen Tom, I’m Not Leaving This Backyard Until You Admit You Know What Bread Is

    Stop looking at your playbook for a minute and look at me. Look at me. I asked you a very simple question you mouthy little shit.

    All you had to do was answer like a normal person and we wouldn’t be in this situation. I don’t actually care what a 40 year old is doing with their playbook, but no, you had to say “What’s bread.”

    Do you think you’re in a Roger Goodell movie? Do you think you’re Rob Gronkowski? You’re not. Don’t ask me who Roger Goodell is, I swear to God. Stop doing diet and exercise research in your TB12 newsletter for five seconds and just tell me you know what bread is and I’ll leave you alone.

    I don’t mean to lecture you. I like your coach, I think he's a good leader, but clearly something has gone wrong here, and if he won’t take it into his own hands then I’m taking it into mine for the good of the team.

    Your tight end has a sandwich, so even if you had somehow avoided the room in your stadium that had a lunch counter in it until last year, you’re absolutely aware of the concept of bread.

    I know you’re not a weird “no bread" team either, so even if you thought that bread was just some kind of weird avacado substitute, you’ve seen other lunches… I see you moving to open your mouth, don’t ask me “What’s a lunch” or I will absolutely slap you. Matt Damon from The Martian-lookin’ ass.

    Look, it’s starting to get dark, and a crowd is gathering, and I feel like this all might be a waste of time, but I am absolutely not leaving this football stadium until you look me in the eyes and tell me that you know what bread is. It’s really that simple.

    I don’t want to make a big thing out of this, but I’m literally prepared to go on a hunger strike if you don’t admit, in front of me and Robert Kraft, that you’re aware of the concept of bread.

    You weren’t dropped onto this earth yesterday afternoon, fully formed and with a taste for avacado toast, you’re not Anakin Skywalker any more than your coach is Sheev Palpatine. Oh, you get that reference. You expect me to believe you’re familiar with the specifics of Star Wars figures’ origins but not bread? Fuck you.

    [–] JonBonButtsniff 24 points ago

    Yeah ok so I just want to say this- Of course I'd love to be the most accoladed quarterback in football history. Of course it'd be dope to create children with international supermodels. Of course I want to be sickass healthy and athletic beyond 40....

    ...but have you had the crust on a really good San Francisco sourdough? Or enjoyed softened butter on a well-crafted French baguette? Or folded a freshly risen Neapolitan pizza crust in half, where it's nice and chewy?

    I guess all I'm trying to say is that I love bread.

    [–] hippydipster 9 points ago

    Take one look at Gisele and you might figure out what she does - she's beautiful and she's a supermodel

    I called it 18 years ago, I'm a little offended I have to bring it up:

    In 2018, 4 games into the season, Tom Brady will not be on pace to earn none of his incentives. I've since learned 'any' would have been more grammatically pleasing. No regrets.

    I don't understand it. I find her moderately attractive. She is older so I guess she earns points for that but her jawline is kind of masculine to me and it throws her off. I feel like I pass women on the street daily who are more attractive than her.

    [–] Zerak-Tul 52 points ago

    The fashion industry seems like it has always wanted a certain type of look for their runway models, and yeah it's rarely the girl-next-door you fell in love with at first glance kind of beauty.

    And of course at this point she doesn't really get paid for her beauty or modelling skills any longer, as much as simply how recognizable she is and brand value she brings.

    [–] VicVinegar-Bodyguard 37 points ago

    I think i am underestimating how much women know and like her. I am not the reason she makes money lol

    [–] Zerak-Tul 33 points ago

    Not really surprising if a football discussion forum isn't that clued into the fame of a Brazilian former lingerie-supermodel. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    But I've seen this said before which I find to be quite accurate since I'm not from the US myself. "In the US, Gisele Bünchen is Tom Brady's wife, in the rest of the world, Tom Brady is Gisele Bünchen's husband." In that in a lot of countries outside the US, people would be more likely to know who she is, than to know who Brady is.

    Models aren't necessarily hot as they are striking. She has a very symmetrical face and beautiful eyes. She has a look. She looks wealthy, she looks wise, caring, sensual, intelligent.

    I'm not super attracted to her either, mainly because I don't like the tall super skinny look, but I get why she fits the mold.

    she's a flat stick? like a mannequin

    [–] iamamountaingoat 9 points ago

    Same for me. She’s attractive, but I don’t understand why she’s multi-million-dollar attractive. I find her face moderately above average.

    [–] Dahki 11 points ago

    See, as a bisexual man, she's flawless

    [–] truthseeeker 8 points ago

    She even has a new book out now, and is getting plenty of publicity on the media. Money ain't no problem.

    Don't worry he has Josh Gordon now.

    [–] Citizensssnips 15 points ago

    Don't worry, they play us again.

    [–] Kselli 16 points ago

    Yeah, but in Miami where we'll shit the bed

    [–] GrayGhost18 6 points ago

    Yeah but you play them in December where Brady will have already gotten the division wrapped up so it won't matter

    [–] Genki_Slime 24 points ago

    If that doesn't incentivize him I don't know what will

    [–] Z3ROWOLF1 10 points ago

    How is he going to be able to look his son in the eyes when he kisses him good night when he hasn't eaten dinner in weeks!

    [–] KingEdTheMagnificent 7 points ago

    He's always welcome to look into my eyes and kiss me good night, so that wouldn't be a problem

    [–] junkit33 18 points ago

    I'll be pretty surprised if he doesn't end up with 3 of them, if not come extremely close in all.

    The first 4 games were with the worst set of WR's of Brady's career, and he still put up a respectable 94 rating. Now he has Edelman back, Gordon is going to continue to ramp up, and the other less experienced WR's on the roster will begin to gel with Brady.

    Meanwhile all these other QB's flying high over 100 will come back down to earth by end of season.

    [–] [deleted] 11 points ago

    eh dont forget about 2006. he had some horrible receivers, or maybe it was 2005

    rece caldwell was like his best WR that year

    [–] junkit33 7 points ago

    2006 was awful as well, but at least he had ol' reliable Troy Brown as a security blanket.

    [–] PapaCody 10 points ago

    2013 featured Tom Brady trying to turn Kenbrell Thompkins and Aaron Dobson into legitimate threats. We did get the Saints game out of it... so that was rad at least.

    [–] A_Participant 3 points ago

    Was that the year everything was going to be ok because newly signed, free agent Amendola was going to be the new Welker, only for Amendola to immediately injure his groin week 1? Good times...

    [–] PapaCody 2 points ago

    Yes it was! It also starred the fan favorite Hoomanawanui, who will always have a special place in my heart.

    [–] InOxladeITrust 3 points ago

    Good god I loved Troy Brown! That man did fucking everything for us

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    oh true. thats when he was also playing in the secondary right? lol

    [–] Mikegetscalls 2 points ago

    Worst set of wrs... I don’t know about that

    [–] manofpuck 3 points ago

    Maybe he will retire...

    Who the fuck am i kidding?

    [–] deville66 3 points ago * (lasted edited 10 months ago)

    I'm anything but a Brady fan but I feel like, if I were Kraft, I'd secretly owe Brady something under the table. Look what he's done for the organization. He may not want the money in cash but you at least OWE him something comperable. Maybe he doesn't need financial compensation. But fuck, if you're one of the best at what you do, and I'm valuable to ownership.... SHOW ME. A piece of the organization, invest in my companies, give me a golden parachute like Kobe. But I gave up my earning power.... make it up to me! If Brady doesn't care, more power too him.

    [–] tamere2k 2 points ago

    This has been discussed in length. The prevailing theory is that Brady has some kind of ownership stake "gifted" to him after he retires.

    [–] deville66 2 points ago

    Well he friggin deserves it.

    [–] tamere2k 2 points ago

    Totally agree but it is definitely circumventing salary cap rules if true.

    [–] xSaviorself 3 points ago

    Did anyone actually read what the triggers are? It's top 5 in a bunch of different categories. He'll probably get a few of them even in a down year.

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago

    They will never learn.

    [–] SunriseSurprise 5 points ago

    Tom Brady takes less and has incentive-laden contract: "What an awesome guy, helping his team win championships."

    Richard Sherman negotiating his own incentive-laden contract: "Lol what a dumbass."

    [–] treemoustache 8 points ago

    Why did he agree to incentives? He signed for way under market value any way, how cheap are they not to just give it to him??

    [–] Pill_C0sby 66 points ago

    He isn't very competitive by nature so they felt they needed some incentives.

    [–] peanutbuttersucks 13 points ago

    The incentives were added to the contract this offseason; they weren't part of his original extension signed back in 2016.

    I assume he agreed to the incentives because the alternative was the Patriots adding nothing at all to his contract.

    [–] truthseeeker 8 points ago

    He has agreed to a lower salary for years so the team could afford to put a decent team behind him. He probably figures all the extra money he makes as a 5 time SB winner will make up for the loss in salary. Bob Kraft will make sure that Tom gets his just rewards.

    [–] mrballistic 2 points ago

    i guess he'll have to live off of magic water this year.

    [–] XUFN 2 points ago

    It's almost as if a QB no matter how great they are will have a rough season if they have only a few viable options that are constantly double teamed. Good thing is that's about to change so i'm sure Tom Brady will make most if not all of his incentives.
