The daughter of the silversmith who created the first Lombardi Trophy is not happy with Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.

Brady, 43, went viral during his team's Super Bowl boat parade when he tossed the Lombardi Trophy from his boat to another. The seven-time Super Bowl champion tossed the trophy from his boat into the hands of tight end Cameron Brate.

Video of the throw quickly went viral on Twitter.

Lorraine Grohs, the daughter of Greg Grohs, who created the original Lombardi Trophy, is not happy with Brady's toss.

“A lot of hard work, a lot of hours go into it,” she said. “It just really upset me that this trophy was disgraced and disrespected by being thrown as if it was a real football. I didn’t sleep for the past two nights because of this. I was that upset, because I know the passion that goes into this trophy, and how my dad and all of his fellow silversmiths are so proud to make this. I’d personally like an apology, not just to me and my family and the other silversmiths, but to the fans.”

Bucs GM Jason Licht responded to the woman on Twitter on Saturday night.

The throw was risky, but Jason Licht is right - there's no need to overreact.
