Joel Williams and Christopher Moore were working part time as security guards at Reliant Stadium for the Patriots – Texans game Sunday.

Williams and Moore were both fired Sunday for taking pictures with QB Tom Brady after his team came back to defeat the Houston Texans, according to KHOU.com.

Williams said he understood the rules.

 “When you are at your post and you’re doing your job, you’re not supposed to take pictures with anybody because your job is to secure that area,” he said.

But once he was finished with his work that day he saw Tom Brady walking by.

“I said, ‘Hey Tom Brady, good job, good game man.’ He looked at me and smiled,” Williams said.

Williams then asked for a photo with the QB and he and Moore both took pictures with the star QB.

“Immediately after I took the picture, I got ran down by a supervisor,” Williams said. “They didn’t really give a reason, they said you know you’re wrong and you’re fired.”

Moore thinks it is unfair they lost their jobs.

“What they say and what they practice are two different things,” Moore said. “What we see on a daily basis, whether it be Reliant or CSC employees, is them taking picture and asking for autographs from players.”

CSC released a statement on the issue, saying: “It is strictly against CSC policy for its employees to request photos or autographs from players. CSC stands by its decision to terminate the two employees who violated this policy.”
