New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady, fresh from an embarrassing 27-24 home defeat at the hands of the Miami Dolphins yesterday, which pitches the team into their first post-season Wild Card game since 2009, has warned journalists not to write him off just yet, and not to write stories about him that aren't funny.
The warning comes after a writer on satirical news website TheSpoof.com hinted that he might use Brady's name in a story which he would then attempt to make 'humorous' in some way, although it is not known how.
The unnamed writer had initially tried his hand at writing stories about an English footballer, but had come unstuck on the 'humour' part.
When challenged, he indicated he might use the name of the Patriots' QB instead, but Brady said:
"If it's something genuinely funny, fair enough, but my experience of this writer is that he cuts up words, puts them into a hat, and lets them come tumbling out on his carpet, then types it up as a story. That's not funny. I mean, it is, but not in the way he intends it, surely?"
