Tom Brady Flops - I would spit in his face

Just saw it on ESPN, Tom Brady was slightly forearmed by a Bills player & he flopped. The ref did not even see it (the ref's head was turned the other away), then when the ref saw that Brady was on the ground, he threw the flag for a 15yrd penalty.

I searched for the video but I can't find it, but when you see it, it is so disgraceful that you would want to spit in his face too. Sorry but i am fuming after seeing that.
This isnt it but still, lmao!

Surely the one to blame here is the official who, you say, gave a penalty when he didn't see it? Every sportsman in the world tries to milk advantages.
If you are fuming over that, give up watching football immediately and never watch an NBA game again. You are going to stress yourself out...bigger crap in life than that bro.
Tom Brady might be my favorite QB of all time
this flopping s**t is catching on. It's happened more this year than ever.

That's a live play....Brady's a potential defender on the interception return, what exactly was foul worthy there...even if it was or wasn't a flop?

definitely not foul worthy. Refs should be held accountable for calls like this. Like you said, he's a defender at that point, he's fair game. Seems the refs were more concerned about Brady's protection than what was going on during the play.
I may be wrong but didnt they make a rule this year that QBs cant get hit after an INT?

I was right, he is considered a defenseless player
The following rule changes were adopted at the NFL Owners' Meeting on May 24, 2011:

Hits to the head of a passer by an opponent's hands, arms or other parts of the body will not be fouls unless they are forcible blows, modifying the existing rule that any contact to a passer's head, regardless of the reason, is penalized as a personal foul (15 yards). Players will be prohibited from "launching" (leaving both feet prior to contact to spring forward and upward into an opponent or using any part of the helmet to initiate forcible contact against any part of the opponent's body) to level a defenseless player, as well as "forcibly hitting the neck or head area with the helmet, facemask, forearm or shoulder regardless of whether the defensive player also uses his arms to tackle the defenseless player by encircling or grasping him.", and lowering the head and make forcible contact with the top/crown or forehead/"hairline" parts of the helmet against any part of the defenseless player's body. Offenders will be penalized 15 yards for unnecessary roughness and ejected from the game if the contact is deemed flagrant.

A "defenseless player" is defined as a:
Player in the act of or just after throwing a pass.

Receiver attempting to catch a pass or one who has not completed a catch and hasn't had time to protect himself or hasn't clearly become a runner. If the receiver/runner is capable of avoiding or warding off the impending contact of an opponent, he is no longer a defenseless player.

Runner whose forward progress has been stopped and is already in the grasp of a tackler.

Kickoff or punt returner attempting to field a kick in the air.

Player on the ground at the end of a play.

Kicker/punter during the kick or return.

Quarterback any time after a change of possession (i.e. turnover).


Player who receives a "blindside" block when the blocker is moving toward his own end-line and approaches the opponent from behind or the side.

I think they did, but it is something like you can't hit the QB if he is away from the play, and Brady is sort of half trying to maybe tackle the guy. It's a very very iffy call though.
if he's trying to make the tackle, he's fair game.
