New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady struck a compassionate tone in saying that he hopes the sports radio host who said disparaging remarks about his 5-year-old daughter "is not fired".
Brady referenced a comment made by WEEI personality Alex Reimer and said he was evaluating whether to continue his weekly interview during the season.
"I've tried to come on this show for many years and showed you guys a lot of respect".
"It's very disappointing when you hear [Reimer's comments], certainly. My daughter, or any child, certainly don't deserve that".
Brady's anger at the radio station was over a Reimer segment in which he discussed the National Football League star's Facebook documentary Tom vs Time, describing the daughter, who could be heard but not seen in it, as "an annoying little pissant".

"I really don't have much to say about it this morning". "So maybe I'll speak with you guys some other time".

Kirk Minihane, one of the hosts of the show, said on the air Monday that Reimer had been suspended for the entire Super Bowl week.
Hopefully, Alex heeds our advice and stays away from commenting on Brady's kids in the future. Just last week, WEEI's parent company and the Patriots signed a five-year deal for radio distribution of Patriots info, with Brady himself as the centerpiece. Look, I think we all go through our life and sometimes we say things we shouldn't say or make mistakes, and that happens.
