You know, at first I was apprehensive, but after looking at photos of Tom Brady and Odell Beckham Jr. side by side it becomes tough to deny that a double standard governs how their overly emotional outbursts are viewed by the general public. I would imagine that double standard has just about everything to do with race, because - other than skin color - there's not a one (or two, or three, or four, or five) difference between the winningest quarterback ever and whiniest wide receiver ever. I can't - for the life of me - figure out what makes people see the theatrics of an attention seeking, prop-abusing pass catcher as selfish when the quarterback who is just as in tune with the entirety of the offense coached by the guy he's yelling at is seen as passionate.
Maybe it's just the blonde mohawk that takes people out of their comfort zone and stops them from seeing the obvious hypocrisy here? Honestly, your guess is an good as mine. It's just a flat out mystery as to why the guy that eats one tablespoon of avocado ice cream in celebration of his 80th consecutive playoff berth gets the benefit of the doubt when the guy that prepared for his one piss poor postseason performance by going to Miami and shooting shirtless R&B album covers with a handful of his teammates doesn't get that same respect. He might have had a tumultuous relationship with the otherwise quiet and unassuming Super Bowl MVP that was throwing him passes, but Odell Beckham cares about the game just as much as Tom Brady. Regardless of whether or not his ranting and raving is aimed at drawing the lens of the nearest camera as opposed to actually fucking winning it.
