Golf Club shows support for Tom Brady at each hole
By: Rebecca Turco
FOXBORO – If you golf at Foxboro Country Club, you’ll have to keep extra track of your game now, because each hole has a number 12 flag for Tom Brady.
Club members in the heart of Patriot Nation are sick of all things Deflate-Gate. They’re ready to “putt” it all behind them.
We feel that this is a miscarriage of justice, way too much penalty for not enough crime, and we wanted to show our support for our hometown team,” said Club Manager Matt Killilea.
He explained that a few club members recently came up with the idea after a round of golf. “It was very typical of this place and these people. They’re pretty funny and creative. There’s a lot of humor with this and a little loyalty behind it,” Killilea said.
The flags have been up at all 18 holes since Monday. Most of the golfers have been having fun with it, once they realized what was going on.
“I think you wouldn’t expect anything less from fans of New England,” said Lisa Lynch of Foxboro.
Patriots fans ABC6 News caught up with have no doubt Brady will win his appeal. They’re just ready to get it all over with.
“I think Roger Goodell is being harsh because he’s making up for past incidents when he was not harsh enough,” explained Lynch.
“We can’t wait for him to be victorious over this nonsense,” said Susan DeGirolamo of Mansfield.
Meanwhile, Killilea has a special message for Brady. “We’re behind you and you’re welcome any time.”
