Sport: Bruce Arians has funny reaction to Tom Brady getting booed at Hall of Fame

As reunion looms, Tom Brady remains ultimate example of Bill Belichick's successful but uncompromising ways

  As reunion looms, Tom Brady remains ultimate example of Bill Belichick's successful but uncompromising ways Amid the plaudits being sent back and forth between Tom Brady and Bill Belichick as they prepare for Sunday’s Tampa Bay-New England game in Foxborough, there remains an underlying question fueling the soap opera that is the NFL. Belichick is 8-11 in that time. Last week Brady noted his “respect” and “admiration” for Belichick. Anyway, that’s all fine, but Brady is running a proxy battle most pointedly via his trainer, Alex Guerrero, who theorized that Belichick drove Brady out by how he treated him. “I think [Belichick’s] emotions or feelings never evolved with age," Guerrero told the Boston Herald.

Peyton Manning appreciated the fact that Tom Brady flew to Ohio to support his former rival at the Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony on Sunday night. The same cannot be said for Manning’s fans, but Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians doesn’t blame them.

When Manning mentioned his “good friend” Brady during his speech, a chorus of boos erupted in Canton. Brady, of course, took the booing in stride.

Arians was asked on Monday about his quarterback being booed. He said he wasn’t surprised at all.

There were times when Manning got the best of Brady in the postseason, but Brady did most of the winning. That’s why Manning’s fans tend to not be fond of Brady, and vice versa.

Manning cracked some great jokes during his Hall of Fame speech about Brady and other players. It was all in good fun, and so were the boos.
