When Andy Gresh posed this question -- "If I were a NFL player, the first thing I'd say to Tom Brady is . . . " -- on Wednesday's 'Uno's Sports Tonight,' Fred Toucher of 98.5 The Sports Hub a simple, impassioned response:

"Screw you, and who the hell do you think you are, sending a letter like that to some station?" Toucher ranted, referring to Brady's letter to WEEI Radio about making decisions based solely on wanting the team to win. "Oh, because you happen to be in this very rare situation where you have a wife who makes [multi-millions], where you have a house with a moat around it, where you're building a castle in Brookline? Such a man of the people. Screw you.

"People need to make the money. [NFL players] have a short window to make that money. I don't like it . . . If I know some guy comes in the market to do radio for cheap money, screw you. You're hurting the market.

"And not everyone lives in that bubble. What a ridiculous thing to say. Get mad at me, I don't give a . . . He's good at playing quarterback. He's probably the best quarterback of all time. [But that's] a crap populist message from some guy that's living a royalty lifestyle."
