Pats fan has perfect response to ESPN's request for Brady video

Before he returned to the Patriots this week, clips of Tom Brady tossing the football around Massachusetts started to leak out.

They all had a Bigfoot quality to them. Always shot from far away, with a guy whose throwing motion looked a lot like Brady’s. But how could you really know it was him?

Still, the appetite to Brady sightings was there and ESPN’s omnipresent assignment desk was on the lookout.

So when bartender Billy Lacey tweeted a video of Brady chucking the ball around between takes of an UnderArmor commercial, the ESPN assignment desk was quick to ask for permission to “show on our TV&Web platforms w/your handle as its courtesy?”

Well, ESPN’s reputation has taken a bit of a hit in New England, where more than a few Patriots fans think the network pushed the Deflategate saga a little too far.

Lacey is one of those fans.

“No chance ESPN,” Lacey responded to the network’s request via Twitter, “you all started Deflategate, do not use my video #loyaltytoTom”

ESPN, of course, did not start Deflategate (they did seem to pick a side, though), but why let the details get in the way of an all-time rejection?
