Daughter Of Vince Lombardi Trophy-Maker Demands Apology From Tom Brady

Daughter Of Vince Lombardi Trophy-Maker Demands Apology From Tom Brady

During the Super Bowl, Tom Brady was the star of the show.

But it was in the aftermath of his team's historic victory that the 43-year-old truly earned his MVP crown.

And it appears his boozy celebrations didn't sit too well with everyone and one person in particular wants the seven-time champ to apologise for his actions.

Lorraine Grohs who is the daughter of the Vince Lombardi trophy-maker, is demanding an apology from the veteran quarterback after he was captured on camera throwing the trophy from one boat to another during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Super Bowl parade on the Hillsborough River .

Video of the moment spread like wildfire on social media as countless fans tagged their mates and shared the viral clip.

But for Lorraine, whose father Greg designed the iconic trophy during his time with Tiffany & Co, Brady's actions weren't a laughing matter.

"I have a big history of this trophy being made by my father, and it's such an honour, and I know all the craftsmen that made it when my dad was there also at Tiffany's and it takes a lot of hard work.

"I personally would like an apology, not just to me and my family and the other silversmiths but to the fans, all the football fans the other team players."

Lorraine admits she's far from a football fan herself, so when she sees someone of Brady's stature chucking the Lombardi trophy around it only adds to her frustrations.

"I only watch the game to watch the trophy come out," she added.

"I like to see all the owners and the football players just hold it up with such pride and hold it up and show everybody and I get goosebumps... Like right now I'm getting goosebumps."

It seems even Tom Brady isn't exempt from a bit of criticism, although we shall have to see whether he actually issues an apology.
