Tom Brady spoke to the Michigan football team on Aug. 22. Robert Kraft chatted on the sidelines with Tiger Woods before the Aug. 29 game commenced. On Sept. 1, Jerod Mayo, Tom Brady Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Stevan Ridley were some of the New England Patriots that attended Robert Kraft’s Labor Day barbeque; all of the players were dressed in casual attire and a good time appeared to be had by all.

How could anyone know all of that information? Social media of course! Gone are the days where football fans could only see their favorite players on television or occasionally spot them in the newspaper. Now, through Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and other social media outlets, fans are given insight into what their favorite players are up to, are able to see what is happening behind the scenes and are given an all-access pass into the athletes’ daily activities.

Whether you are looking to see what time the game starts, if you want to see a player’s thoughts on being re-signed or released from the Patriots, if you are interested in winning tickets, or want to see pictures of the athletes, the various social media accounts are going to give you access to it all.
