NFL takes bold step against Buccaneers Tom Brady
By Rob Leeds
Is Tom Brady still having fun while playing with the Buccaneers? The answer to that remains to be seen, but he sure seems pissed off during bad games.
It is more than fair to say that Tom Brady has changed slightly in his demeanor during year three with the Buccaneers.
The GOAT seems far more measured on the sidelines during games, even during wins. This is a stark change from what we have seen during the last two years where it seemed like almost every win was fun.
The losses were a different story.
Tom Brady caught the eyes of media last year when he broke a tablet on the sideline during an embarrassing loss to the Saints. It seems like, despite the other changes in sideline behavior, Brady has not left this in 2021.
After another instance of a broken tablet during another sloppy game against the Saints in 2022, the NFL is taking a stand against Brady and his destruction of league-sponsored property:
The league probably didn’t have much that it could do in a situation like this. Are your sponsors really going to be happy when they see one of the most recognizable athletes in the world breaking their product on national T.V. more than once?
Still, this is a bold move by the league, and it is sure to lead to some type of joke or loop hole from Brady if he still is the guy that we have seen in Tampa.
Brady does have enough money to pay for a fine and say screw it. Can the league really police how anyone acts on the sideline if emotions are involved and the player has near-limitless income?
Based on how the season has gone so far and how this offense has looked, it feels safe to say that another broken tablet is coming. Seeing how the league follows through will be very interesting.
