Tom Brady Abruptly Ends Weekly WEEI Interview In Response to Alex Reimer's Remarks Towards His Daughter
Audio of Reimer calling Vivian Brady a pissant on Mut and Night.
Add ending the WEEI career of Alex Reimer to Tom Brady's already quite impressive resume. Although he hasn't been fired yet I'd be utterly shocked if he wasn't axed at some point today. Just makes too much sense. While ending Reimer is not quite in the same class as a Super Bowl win, it's still quite the accomplishment for TB12. Somewhere in the range of an AFC Offensive Player of the Month award imo. He really can do it all!
Last week while on the air with Mike Mutansky Alex Reimer referred to Tom Brady's daughter as an "annoying little pissant" when the two were discussed Tom vs. Time.
I have been looking all morning for audio of Brady's remarks but haven't been able to find it. This morning on his weekly Monday spot with Kirk and Callahan Brady said the following:
"I've tried to come on this show for many years and showed you guys a lot of respect," "I've always tried and come on and do a good job for you guys. It's very disappointing when you hear [the comments about my daughter], certainly. My daughter, or any child, certainly don't deserve that."
"I really don't have much to say this morning. Maybe I'll speak with you guys some other time,"
Reimer has already been suspended for his remarks and honestly I think he should be fired. I'm not saying this because I think he's horrible at his job, or because he's a personification of the smug, gay know it all stereotype. It's simply because this decision is a no brainer.
What's more important for WEEI?
Their weekly interview with Tom Brady, the future HOF quarterback for the New England Patriots or Alex Reimer and his snarky commentary?
Pretty obvious answer, if firing Reimer is how you keep Brady happy, you do it. Simple as that. Although given WEEI's questionable decision making they probably will keep Reimer and turn their back on Brady.
What a horrible trying to be edgy take by him Reimer though. Anybody who watched the first episode of Tom vs. Time knows that his daughter was being an adorable little 5 year old who was excited to play soccer and have a sleepover. Only a monster would say otherwise. Enter Alex Reimer. Of course Reimer didn't think of it that way, and used the term "pissant". I hate to go after the whole gay thing because it's well documented that DOL is quote "pro gay af" but seriously dude? Of course he used the gayest insult of all time. I've heard the term pissant used a handful of times in my life and pretty sure it's been exclusively used by the gays. I feel like Ant from Last Comic Standing said it like 15 years ago and if that is the case than my memory deserves a pat on the back.
Despite not really liking Reimer at all, I do kind of feel bad for him given the added scrutiny he gets for being a 24 year old twink (his words) working in Boston sports radio, but you've gotta be smarter than this dude. You can't go after the crown and expect to survive. Brady and GIsele are New England's Royal Family. Making fun of their daughter while working for a Boston station is essentially career suicide.
