FS1 anchor Rob Parker thinks Tom Brady cheated in his career. And he wants the fans to remember that when they evaluate the legendary QB’s career.

“Make sure that when you’re reciting the good stuff Tom Brady did, make sure you include the other stuff that was in the mix because we do it for everybody else and he shouldn’t get a pass. He shouldn’t get a pass because ultimately, he did cheat. His team cheated and Tom Brady cheated,” Parker said on his show ‘The Odd Couple’.
