Tom Brady has heard it all from the media about his team and coach's relationship with his personal trainer, Alex Guerrero. A relationship that according to all reports last season was strained. 


Just when you thought all the talk was done and over, it was reported over the weekend by ESPN's Mike Reese that Alex Guerrero flew on the team's private plane en route to their preseason game against the Carolina Panthers, something Guerrero was banned from doing the back end of last season. 


Naturally, this was going to come up in Brady's weekly radio interview with local Boston station WEEI. Brady did not appreciate the topic being brought up again, so much so that after a few short responses, he abruptly hung up, leaving listeners with nothing but a dial tone. Below is the transcript of the call.

Brady has had issues with this weekly call in the past, saying he would "evaluate whether I want to come on this show again,” after one of the hosts, Alex Reimer, called his daughter an "annoying little pissant" in reference to her appearance in Brady's Facebook documentary series "Tom vs. Time."


Brady also shut down a reporter asking about Julian Edelman's relationship with Guerrero. 

What struck me as odd about this specific instance was how avoidable this whole situation was. It was a legitimate line of questioning that he could have easily provided cookie-cutter responses like, "I'm just focused on winning football games," or "You'll have to ask Belichick about that." His decision to hang up appears to have given this story legs, and it may not have grown into anything if he had just approached his answers differently. Listen below for the full audio of the call. 

It will be interesting to see how much of a distraction, if any, this becomes in Patriot land this season.
