Breaking News

Tom Brady says he doesn't understand why everyone's making such a big deal about his friendship with Donald Trump ... essentially telling people GET OVER IT!

After President Trump gave an inauguration speech saying Tom had called him to congratulate him on the election ... Brady was asked about his relationship with POTUS on the 'Kirk and Callahan' show on WEEI. 

"I have called him, yes, in the past. Sometimes he calls me, sometimes I call. But again, that’s been someone I’ve known. I always try to keep it in context because for 16 years you know someone before maybe he was in the position that he was in."

He then dropped this line -- "Why does everybody make such a big deal? I don’t understand it."

For his part, Brady says there are "a lot things" he and Trump disagree on -- though he wouldn't get specific. He also wouldn't expand when asked how Gisele feels about his friendship with Trump.

Still, Brady made it clear Trump's his boy ... and he doesn't plan on turning his back on the guy.

We got the All-American out Saturday at II Pastaio in Bev Hills, where he says while it's good for protesters to get their grievances off their chests ... pouncing on day 1 is inexcusable.

He's also still got that lead position for the President's Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition on his mind ... but it sounds like he's still waiting to talk to the Prez.

"But that's the one thing they ask you ... 'Do you have that degree?'"

They're stoked about the FORTUNE they'll save on state income tax!!

Breaking News

0119-mark-gastineau-gettyNY Jets legend Mark Gastineau says he's been diagnosed with dementia, alzheimer's and parkinson's ... and suggests it was caused by football.

The 60-year-old appeared on 'Sports Zone' on WOR radio and revealed his health issues -- while also saying he's working to help young players avoid the same fate.

"I want to get out and I want to help other kids & youths coming into the game," Gastineau said.

"There's techniques out there that if I would have had them, I know that I wouldn't have the results that I have now."

Gastineau says he does NOT regret playing football -- he just wants to help make the game safer moving forward.

"I don't want [my health] to overpower or overshadow the 'Heads Up' program" -- a program that promotes youth safety in football.

"I want it to be a warning to mothers and fathers to be able to put their kids into safe places to be able to carry on a team sport that I think is going to be way far beneficial to them then if they didn't have that in their lives."

Tim Brown 'Concerned' About Vegas Temptations ... for Raiders Players

1/19/2017 3:40 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Raiders legend Tim Brown says he's pumped for the team to move to Las Vegas ... but admits he's concerned about some of the players getting too caught up in the Sin City lifestyle.

The Hall of Famer joined the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show (airs Thursday night on FS1) and said he voiced his concerns to Raiders management ... but ultimately realized there's temptation in EVERY city.

"When we were in L.A., we found ways to get into trouble, right? And when you're in Oakland, you find ways to get in trouble. So I think [the Raiders] whole thing is, 'Hey, look, if guys are looking for trouble, no matter what city they're in, they're gonna find the trouble.'"

Tim says the situation might require hiring people to "babysit" some of the players but "hopefully this team will be mature enough to handle the situation."

By the way, that IS Pierre Garcon in the shot -- he's co-hosting the show tonight and he's awesome!
