The Patriots reportedly did not appreciate Gisele Bundchen’s response to a heckling Giants fan after their Super Bowl 46 loss. Who would? As a massive public figure, you would think Gisele would be adept to handling criticism and know enough to ignore it. Unfortunately, she fired back at a Giants fan who criticized her husband Tom Brady on Sunday night by bashing New England’s receivers for dropping passes. According to TMZ.com, the Patriots are not happy with their quarterback’s better half.

Multiple team sources reportedly told TMZ that Gisele violated a “code of brotherhood” by throwing the pass-catchers under the bus. One source expressed disappointment by saying her comments were like “kicking someone when they are down.”

Sources tell TMZ, the teammates are “disappointed” Gisele decided to air her grievances after the game last night — when she said, “My husband cannot f***ing throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”

According to sources, Tom’s teammates feel betrayed by Gisele’s behavior — the Pats organization is a brotherhood and Gisele’s pot shot violated the code — which is basically … win as a team, lose as a team.

Depending on who wears the pants in the Brady-Bundchen relationship, it is quite possible that Tom let his wife know she has to learn not to say things like that or let opposing fans bother her. Either that, or he begged and pleaded and told her not to worry about it and to please, please, please try not to do it again. I’m sure one way or another it was discussed in the Brady (Bundchen?) household.
