Brady Rangers NFL Tuck Rule

Tom Brady trolls Raiders fans on Facebook and post goes viral. Brady is a fan of the NFL Tuck Rule, which gave the New England Patriots its victory over the Oakland Raiders in 2002. The infamous NFL Tuck Rule, which lead Brady to winning Super Bowl XXXVI was repealed in 2013.

Tom Brady uses his Facebook page for all kinds of reasons, sometimes to post his college résumé and make his old boss proud and other times it is to poke the Oakland Raiders over the NFL Tuck Rule that left them bruised and beaten in 2002.

On Saturday, Brady posted a picture that must have angered Oakland Raiders fans. The photo of Brady was taken moments after the NFL Tuck Rule was applied during the AFC divisional playoff game on January 19, 2002, between the New England Patriots and the Oakland Raiders in the middle of a blizzard at the Foxboro Stadium in Massachusetts.

New England was behind by three points during the fourth quarter of the game when the following happened:

“Charles Woodson knocked the ball free from Brady, which the Raiders recovered. But after instant replay, referee Walt Coleman reversed this call because of little-known rule, later renamed the “Tuck Rule” which allowed the Patriots to keep the ball because Brady’s arm was going forward in a throwing motion.”

After the game, Woodson angrily said:

“It’s some bullshit, that’s exactly how I feel, I feel like it was a bullshit call. It never should have been overturned.”

Two games later, Patriots won Super Bowl XXXVI. In March of 2013, by a vote of 29-1 the NFL Tuck Rule was abolished.

Tom Brady who had believed that “We’re going to get their best shot” in his sixth match against the Oakland Raiders was wrong.

On Sunday, the New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders had a replay of 2002 as they battled in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

And just like 12 years ago, the Patriots won by a score of 9 – 16.
