FOXBOROUGH, Massachusetts – New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady abruptly ended his weekly WEEI radio interview on Monday morning, saying twice that he did not even want to talk about his personal coach Alex Guerrero's topic
Alex Guerrero, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's personal trainer flew to New England's team plane, according to the Fridays preparation game.
Here is the exchange between host Kirk Minihane and Brady, which caused Brady to stop after about six minutes and 30 seconds:
Minihane: We saw reports this weekend that Alex was on the team What he was not in the second half of last year, I think, and not on the sidelines. Is that exactly?
Brady: Yes, he was with me last week, so it was; yeah
Minihane: What changed when he was not in the team last year and this year? Was that just communication back and forth? Was the understanding of other things? What made this year happen?
Brady: You know, I do not want to; (1
Brady: I said, I do not want to go inside.
Minihane: OK, carry on, [co-host] Evan [Drellich]] Brady: Yes. Everyone knows that the work he and I do together is well documented.
Mini Hane: No, I understand that. I'm just trying to find out because I saw the reports this weekend that he was traveling with the team. Was he on the sidelines Friday?
Brady: Yes, guys, have a nice day. I will talk to you later [dial tone].
It was not the first time that Brady cut an interview when asked about Guerrero.
On July 28, Brady spoke to reporters for the first time in a training camp, ending this session early when he was asked if he had a reaction to those who threatened to block Guerrero's suspension for the broad receiver Julian Edelman performance-enhancing substance policies of the NFL.
"I have no comment, it's just ridiculous" I'm outside. See you, "Brady said before picking up his helmet and walking away.
Brady's weekly interview made headline news as part of a contractual agreement between WEEI and the Patriots in Super Bowl LII, because a fill-in presenter on the station in another show had referred to Brady's 5-year-old daughter as "annoying little pissant" when he discussed the Docuseries "Tom vs. Time."
At the time, Brady had said he was wondering if he should continue his morning session with the station, and Brady said in the Super Bowl that he hoped that host Alex Reimer would not lose his job because of that remark .
