NFL looking into report of laser beam flashed at Tom Brady

The NFL is investigating a report of a laser beam flashed in Tom Brady’s face during crunch time of Sunday night’s thrilling AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs in Arrowhead Stadium. The green-tinted dot flickered menacingly off Brady’s upper body and face multiple times in the pivotal fourth quarter, video clips tweeted by a reporter from KMBC show.

Brian McCarthy, NFL vice president of communications, told the Herald the league is “looking into the report of the laser beam” and NFL security is taking the lead. Sunday night’s AFC title tilt was under league control, so it’s up to the NFL to make the next move. All eyes are now shifting to the Feb. 3 Super Bowl in Atlanta between the Patriots and Los Angeles Rams, but NFL officials signaled the laser beam threat will be examined.

KMBC reporter William Joy went on Twitter Monday to break the news that a photographer at the station “caught someone pointing what appears to be a laser pointer in Tom Brady’s face (during the) Play between the ‘muff’ that wasn’t and Sorensen int.” In that clip, the laser beam dances all around Brady just before he hands the ball to running back Sony Michel.

1. Given that the Patriots won the game...

...why does this really matter? Is may be worth the cost of investigation, but is it worth hyperventilating about in the media?

3. If the person who did this isn't found and prosecuted, it will happen again.

Maybe not by this asshole, but someone else will try it.

4. All playoff and Super Bowl coverage is always ubiquitous

Fortunately, it's also fairly easy to avoid if you don't want to read it.

Laser pointers are very dangerous near people's eyes.

2. I can't stand Brady and the Cheatriots, but I hope they catch the asshole who did this.

Not only is this a form of cheating, it's dangerous.
