    Tom Brady is living legend to the hundreds of fans who rallied at Gillette Stadium Sunday.

    "He's a good player, he does nothing wrong," said one fan.

    "Tom Brady's the greatest quarterback of all time," said another.

    "I'm here for him," said another. "I got the sweater - it's a little hot for a sweater, but I'll take the heat."

    Heat is what they are hoping this "Free Tom Brady" rally will put on NFL officials to remove the Super Bowl MVP's four game suspension.

    "We're crazy when we're unified," said organizer Paublo Munoz. "We're an amazing team - as Patriots Nation, that is - and this really shows it."

    Some came from New Hampshire and Rhode Island just to show their support and purchase shirts, dawning the words "Free Brady".

    After getting married earlier this month, one couple had a change of plans for their honeymoon in hopes of a change in plans with disciplinary action taken against Brady.

    "God bless Brady, because we're backing him, no matter what," said new husband Paul Goodrow. "We're not going on our honeymoon until that ban is lifted." 

    Last week, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft said he won't appeal the punishment dealt to the team. But these fans say the $1 million fine and losing two draft picks is way too harsh.

    They also had some choice words for the NFL commissioner and Indianapolis Colts.

    "Goodell is stupid," said a young fan.
