It has been an interesting controversy for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
The six-time Super Bowl champion is receiving a lot of blowback for his filing to trademark ‘Tom Terrific.’
New York Mets fans and former players spoke out believing the nickname belongs to Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Seaver.

Brady denied at a press conference that he was going to use the name for financial gain.
“It’s unfortunate. I was actually trying to do something because I didn’t like the nickname and I wanted to make sure no one used it because some people wanted to use it,” Brady told reporters. “I was trying to keep people from using it, and then it got spun around into something different than what it was. Good lesson learned, and I’ll try to do things a little different in the future.”
The quarterback went as far to say that he dislikes it, or any praise directed towards him for that matter.
“I don’t like the nickname,” Brady told reporters. “I don’t like when people probably give me many nice compliments, certainly that. It wasn’t spmething I was trying to do out of any disrespect or ill-manner or anything like that.”
