Notable incidents[edit]

Breer was the writer most often questioning Patriots coach Bill Belichick in the famous 2014 "We're on to Cincinnati" press conference.

In May 2017 Breer dismissed widely reported allegations that baseball player Adam Jones was the target of racist taunts by fans at Fenway Park because, according to Breer "I've probably been to 200 games at Fenway in my life. Never heard a slur yelled at a player."[3]

In 2017 Breer repeatedly defended NFL front offices against allegations of "Blackballing" Colin Kaepernick for his decision to protest the national anthem.[4]
