Tom Brady was roundly booed by the Super Bowl 50 crowd in Santa Clara, California Sunday.

The Patriotsquarterback was on hand at Levi's Stadium as the league honored former Super Bowl MVPs prior to kickoff of the game between the Broncos and Panthers.

Obviously a great chunk of the crowd was pro-Broncos and the Denver fanbase has no love for the face of the rival Patriots. But it was somewhat surprising given that Brady grew up just down the road from Levi's Stadium, in San Mateo, California.

Brady's attendance for the ceremony came in question last week as he is still at odds with the NFL over theDeflategate scandal. The NFL's appeal of the decision handed down by Judge Richard Berman, which wiped out Brady's four game suspension, is scheduled for March 3.
