New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was booed heavily when he was introduced as part of the Super Bowl 50 pregame ceremony honoring past Super Bowl MVPs, perhaps as a result of a strong contingent of Denver Broncos fans in attendance for the game against the Carolina Panthers.

Can't believe how badly Tom Brady was booed. That ain't right.— Greg A. Bedard (@GregABedard) February 7, 2016
Brady's parents aren't at Levi's Stadium to see/hear Tom get booed. They're watching the game in Los Gatos, CA, at Brady's sister's home.— Christopher Gasper (@cgasper) February 7, 2016
People love to boo Brady but secretly wish they had him as their QB! If people are hating you for success then you're doing something right!— Michael Strahan (@michaelstrahan) February 7, 2016
Brady was one of only a few players to receive boos.
In his weekly pregame interview on Westwood One, Brady said to host Jim Gray, “I’ll look forward to a great game. I’ll look forward to it being over and everyone looking forward to the 2016 season.”
