Tom Brady: You have company.

Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie called the the leadership of the NFL and NFLPA a bunch of “a--holes” on Monday. You may remember Cromartie used the same words when talking about Brady 12 days ago.

“You got our head union rep acting like an a-hole,” Cromartie told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “They got their guys acting like a-holes. So they just need to get their sh-- together and just get it done.”

Cromartie seemed to realize that some other players may not be thrilled with his comments.

“Honestly, I don’t give a damn if they get mad at me or not,” Cromartie said. “But it’s getting to the point where it’s getting ridiculous when everything is always dealing with money. You’re basically dealing with people’s livelihoods.

“You’re dealing with hundreds of thousands of other people in this workplace from the venues to everyone else. To me, you need to stop bitching about it. If you want to say that you want to get into a room and meet. Then, do it. Don’t just talk about it.”

You know it’s a crazy world we live in when Antonio Cromartie is the voice of reason on labor matters.
