Wonder what he will do this year?
Jim - I've re-read the thread and I don't see where anyone "accepted rumors as fact". Nor do I think a "gift" of an XLR that results in a lawsuit could be called a big success. As I said earlier, I don't pretend to know the facts in the GM vs Brady flap.Jim K said:It is amazing to me how quickly people (including those on this site) accept rumors as fact. Tom Brady accepted the XLR he got as MVP last year and turned around and donated it to his public high school here in Northern California where it could be auctioned off to raise money for their athletic programs. The idea was a big success. I can't blame him for going after GM if they were using his name and likeness without permission. That's the value celebrities have always had and they all guard this "property" carefully. Why would anyone automatically believe GM behaved properly? And why would anyone believe Brady would believe improperly?
As far as I'm concerned, we should stick to cars on this site. ...
