Are the refs being extra protective of Tom Brady?
After Sunday’s game, Dolphins linebacker Raekwon McMillan told a few Miami Dolphin beat reporters that a ref told him to “stay off” Tom Brady after a perfectly legal hit.
This appears to be the hit in question. As you can see in the video McMillan was able to get a clean lick on Tom Brady as Brady was throwing the ball.
Of course, the Internet conspiracy theorists came out of the woodwork to claim that the league is trying to protect the golden boy Tom Brady.
