The NFL has sent a message to Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady regarding his sideline shenanigans, and it may cost the beautiful Buccaneers quarterback some money.

When it comes to the greatest athletes in sports history, they tend to have a lot in common. Sure, there’s god-given athleticism and all-world talent, but another thing most share is the competitiveness that is off the charts.

Michael Jordan was seen as the GOAT of GOATs during his time largely due to the fact that he was considered the most competitive person on the planet both on and off the basketball court. Of course, his heyday was before Thomas Edward Patrick Brady came down the pike. It’s no secret that Brady hates to lose, even if his losses are few and far between, and he can wear his emotion on his sleeve on the rare occasion that things are not going his way on the gridiron.

The most recent notable example of this was the latest occasion Brady could be seen on the sidelines throwing down the tablet used to go over the previous drive’s plays in anger and frustration. This isn’t the first time, and the NFL has caught wind of it, as they tend to do, and sent a message to Brady.

The league’s message to Brady basically said that if he doesn’t cut it out with the tablet-tossing tomfoolery, then he will be fined. Of course, money isn’t exactly an object to someone like Brady, even if he has become famous for taking pay cuts in order for his teams to sustain success. To be fair though, the NFL also essentially prints money, so even if the tablets are obscenely expensive, no doubt they can be easily replaced.

At the end of the day, with the playoff push in full swing for the league, it is kind of funny that this story is out and about. Fortunately for Bucs fans, and Tom Brady’s wallet, this is the time of year where things tend to go right for number 12, so there shouldn’t be much carnage on the tablets going forward in the 2021 season.
