NFL superstar Tom Brady is the most hated man in the NFL right now after he was exposed by another handshake snub on Tuesday (AEST).
The legendary quarterback’s petty refusal to face rival Jared Goff after the Rams’ dramatic 27-24 win over Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers has overshadowed the 43-year-old’s spectacular choke.
Brady completed just 26 of 48 passes for two touchdowns and two interceptions.
He was 0 from seven throwing long-range passes and his interception with two-minutes left sealed the win for Los Angeles.

After going at each other all night, Brady conveniently left the field and headed straight down the tunnel to the locker room while Goff walked out to shake hands with his opponents.
Video showed the moment Goff stood around on the middle of the field looking for Brady.
One of the greatest athletes of all time was already sulking in the dressing room.
Brady’s repeated refusals to show his respect to opposition quarterbacks when bested on the field has called his sportsmanship into question.
The most successful quarterback of all time and increasingly the biggest sore loser in the league.
Hall of Fame NFL great Shannon Sharpe called Brady out on Twitter after the petulant display.
“I guess Brady doesn’t know Goff well enough to shake his hand after losing,” Sharpe wrote.
“Yet, he knows every QB after he wins. Brady is full of what the elephant left on the show ground. His attitude is bulljive and it’s time to call his A** out on it.”
Brady was also spotted darting for the locker room after his team’s loss to Nick Foles and the Chicago Bears earlier this year. A trend is emerging.
Brady has previously attempted to explain his handshake snub of Foles.
“I didn’t even think about that,” Brady said earlier this year.
“I think Nick Foles is a hell of a player and a Super Bowl champ and I don’t know one reason or another why I wouldn’t do that. Sometimes I’ve run off of the field, sometimes I haven’t. Sometimes if I have a personal relationship like I have with Drew [Brees] and Justin [Herbert] and Aaron [Rodgers] over the years… I don’t know. I don’t think it’s anything in particular but I have great admiration for Nick and I think that he’s a hell of a player. They’re off to a great start.”
Brady’s refusal to shake hands with anyone but his chums and after victories left him open to ridicule on Tuesday.
NBC NFL writer Patrick Daughertywrote on Twitter: “Tom Brady ever going to get called out on his heading straight to the locker room s***? Thermonuclear controversy if it is any number of other quarterbacks”.
Sharpe continued to stick the boot into Brady on Wednesday in his Undisputed TV show with commentator Skip Bayless. His stinky performance was just as criticised as his sportsmanship.
He was ripped for repeatedly finding Rams defenders.
He now has nine picks in 11 games this year. He had eight picks in 16 games last season.
When asked what responsibility Brady has to accept for the loss, he said: “9.5 out of 10. Tom has played bad, it’s as simple as that. Your boy looked awful last night and I don’t want to hear anything about the defence. Brady has happy feet, and he doesn’t want to be hit.”
Despite his turbulent season, Brady’s Buccaneers are still right in the race for the playoffs at 7-4 and currently sit in the wildcard spot with five games remaining.
