I agree with Huge. I have lost some respect for Brady because of this for sure. I think the whole deal with MVP's and such getting cars and other extravagant gifts in exchange for advertising and sponsorships is a scandle in itself, much less how Brady has handled it. If they want to donate a car in return for some air time, I have no problem with that. If they want to call it the "Cadallic MVP", I have no problem with that either. Now, what I DO have a problem with is giving that car/cash to a guy who makes more in a year that the GNP of most small countries. That car or cash equilvent should have been donated by GM to a homeless or abused woman's shelter, maybe an underprivleged youth sports program, et al. If it were me, and I was the MVP, I would raffle it off, donate it, or sell it and donate the cash to a needy cause. There are only about 25 billion more deserving and needy people and/or programs than Tom Brady or any other spoiled athlete. Pathetic.
