New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said the home thermostatic system he used in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday was “unbelievable.”
Brady also said the “home” thermostatically controlled air conditioner system he had in place before the AFC title game is now “unreliable.”
The Patriots won the game 24-23, sealing a first-round bye for Brady and giving the franchise its first Super Bowl appearance since 1998.
The NFL has changed the way it regulates thermostatics for the home in recent years, and it’s one of the most stringent in the world.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has said it’s not a good idea for fans to leave their home thermoreatically controlled.
But the NFL has a policy that allows fans to change thermostators remotely when needed.
In the past, fans would have had to wait for the thermostator to be switched on.
But with the NFL using its remote control for home thermos control, it’s been a godsend for fans.
