Tom Brady trolls Raiders fans over infamous tuck play

Sunday September 21st, 2014

Usually reserved New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady took to Facebook before Sunday's game against Oakland to prod Raiders fans over the most infamous play in the two team's history: The Tuck Rule play.

Brady wrote, "Tomorrow is my 6th time playing the Raiders. What's your favorite Patriots vs Raiders memory? I know mine..." beneath a photo of him spiking the ball after the scoring the game winning touchdown against the Raiders in the 2001-02 playoffs.

That touchdown was made possible by the Tuck Rule, which referees invoked after it appeared Brady's former college teammate Charles Woodson stripped the ball from Brady, forcing a fumble and all but sealing a Raiders win. Instead, Brady's arm was ruled to be headed in a forward-throwing motion, and the Patriots kept possession of the football. 

Brady's high-level trolling (and some interesting responses) are below:
