New England Patriots fans weren’t very happy with a pregame move by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday evening.
Prior to the end of pregame warmups at Gillette Stadium, the Buccaneers gathered at midfield, right on the Patriots logo.
Tom Brady had reportedly already departed the field at that point. Perhaps if he was still out there, he would’ve stopped his teammates from doing that.
Alas, he was not on the field, and the Buccaneers players gathered right on the midfield logo, to a smattering of boos from the New England crowd.

The midfield logo is a sacred place for many fan bases, though the Buccaneers are hardly the first NFL team to pull something like this before a game.
Brady, meanwhile, was reportedly cheered every time he took the field in pregame warmups. However, he and the Bucs offense were booed heavily before their first series of the game.
