The veteran quarterback received fierce criticism in 2015 for the infamous “Deflategate” furore.
But it’s been revealed by Sports Illustrated earlier this week that the guilty party had been given their marching orders for a lack of professionalism.
“While fans are entitled to have personal opinions, we have a journalistic responsibility to provide unbiased reporting,” KDKA said in a statement.
“The graphic that appeared Monday violated our news standards.
“The individual who created the graphic no longer works for KDKA-TV.”
The producer who gave the controversial graphic the go ahead has spoken out on Twitter.
Michael Telek wrote: “Hi there, I got fired for this joke.
“I just bought a house so that is putting a pinch on things.
“Once I land a job there will be a GOAT Giveaway where I will donate the money to charity in Tom Brady’s name.”
The LA Rams and New England Patriots will lock horns in the Super Bowl on Sunday.
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has led his side to the Super Bowl for the ninth time.
Rams chief Sean McVay, in contrast, has just 26 wins to his name as a head coach.
The Patriots also have 36 players with Super Bowl experience – including the indomitable Brady.
C.J Anderson and Aqib Talib, however, both won the Super Bowl with the Denver Broncos.
Anderson insists the key to a Rams victory is to keep things simple.
“Be great on third down, be great in the red zone, and protect the football,” he said.
“If we can do that at a high level, got a high chance at winning.”
The Rams defeated the New Orleans Saints 26-23 in the NFC Championship game.
The Patriots edged past the Kanas City Chiefs 37-31 in the corresponding AFC fixture.
