Harry Potter actor slams Tom Brady for his support of President Trump

Only in La La Land does one believe their opinion is newsworthy and important.

From Fox News: Avid football fan Daniel Radcliffe is sick of Tom Brady and the New England Patriots’ constant victories, but even more sick of Brady’s support of President Donald Trump.

On Saturday, Radcliffe, 29, told Variety he’s supporting the Los Angeles Rams in this year’s Super Bowl, explaining, “The whole world is rooting against the Patriots … sorry.”

The “Harry Potter” star admitted he doesn’t think Brady, 41, should retire, but that “he should stop winning things.”

“Take that MAGA hat out of your locker! I feel like that was the moment when as a country we were all like, ‘Come on, dude! You’re awesome…Don’t put that in here,'” Radcliffe chuckled.

“So [I’m rooting for the] Rams. I don’t know if they’re going to win but I want them to.”

In 2015, a Make America Great Again hat was spotted in Brady’s locker during a televised interview.

Brady and Trump are friends and reportedly have played golf together in the past, but don’t see eye to eye on a key issue: Kneeling during the national anthem.

After Trump called the quiet protests against police brutality against people of color unpatriotic, Brady said in an interview, “I certainly disagree with what he said. I thought it was just divisive. Like I said, I just want to support my teammates.”

Gee, I wonder why? 2017 NFL kickoff viewership down double-digits from 2016

cleveland browns

Keep taking a knee boys and watch your careers dive…

Good.
The NFL season opener was Thursday night. I did not watch and will not be watching anytime soon as I have no use for the SJWs and their message.
From Yahoo: The score between the winning Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots was settled on the field at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA, last night and now the final viewership numbers are in too.
And NBC and the NFL might be feeling a lot like the defending Super Bowl champs: not so great.
With 21.8 million NFL fans tuning in, the kickoff of the 2017 regular season was down 13% for the NFL and NBC from last year’s opener. Not only does that represent a very real smack down for the league and the net coming off a previous season that saw double-digit declines in its early months, but it is the worst an opening game has done in over five-years.
In fact, this is the first time in five years that the kickoff game has fallen below 25 million viewers. And, while the most watched network show in three months, even with streaming and other NBC platforms bumping things up to 22.2 million, the game still fell short of the 25 million mark.
All of which means a lot more is now riding on Sunday Night Football’s NY Giants and Dallas Cowboys match-up on September 10. Because if those two mega-market teams can’t score ratingswise, the NFL has a real re-think on its agenda.

New England Patriots (and others) Go Homo!

Pats, S.F. Giants back gay marriage

WASHINGTON — The New England Patriots are for same-sex marriage. So are the San Francisco Giants.
The reigning football and baseball champions, along with baseball’s small-market Tampa Bay Rays, are among the thousands of businesses, religious groups, advocacy organizations and politicians who are filing legal briefs at the U.S. Supreme Court in support of gay marriage.
The cases from Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee will be argued April 28, and a decision is expected by early summer.
Roughly six dozen briefs backing pro-gay rights plaintiffs in the four states are expected by the Friday deadline. Included is a “people’s brief” filed by the Human Rights Campaign with the signatures of 207,551 people.
The Super Bowl-champion Patriots, the World Series-winning Giants and the Rays are part of a brief from hundreds of U.S. businesses.
The Patriots play in Massachusetts, the first state to allow same-sex couples to marry, and the Giants represent a city that is notable for its lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
Rays president Brian Auld said it was important that his team stand up as well.
“We’re a small but visible business, and I actually think it’s important that we send this signal of inclusion to the entire region,” Auld said in a telephone interview Thursday as he watched the Rays’ first spring training game in Port Charlotte, Florida.
The team also has participated in the “It Gets Better” project to encourage LGBT teenagers who have been bullied.
“Our players have traditionally been supportive of these kinds of things,” Auld said.
The Patriots, Giants and Rays are taking a stand the same week New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy made headlines for comments on MLB ambassador for inclusion Billy Bean, who is gay. “I disagree with his lifestyle,” Murphy told NJ.com on Tuesday. “I do disagree with the fact that Billy is a homosexual.”
A team spokesman said Wednesday that Murphy will no longer address his religious beliefs and will stick to baseball.
