Imagine being humiliated by your own dad. Well, football pillar, Mr. Tom Brady doesn’t have to imagine any longer. Recently, Tom’s good ‘ol dad, nice old chap, decided it was about time he speak out and let the world know a few things concerning his son. This desire delivered, you may say, a blow to Tom’s ego. Want to know what was discussed? Let’s read on and find out…
As per HuffPost, Tom Brady’s dad once compared his son to a little boy playing outside who refuses to come home. Technically this is true. According to former NFL receiver Cris Carter, this is how Tom’s dad views his son. The remark hinted that the elder Brady wants his son to retire – hang it up. Go out to pasture. (Watch the video below.)
“The kid is outside still playing, & he won’t come in. It’s raining. I am only afraid the kid won’t stop playing even if he wins”⁰⁰Cris Carter shares Tom Brady’s Sr.’s concerns about the GOAT’s ability to walk away from the game⁰⁰📺: @FanDuelTV | @heykayadams | @criscarter80 pic.twitter.com/DtUwkKObmp— Up & Adams (@UpAndAdamsShow) December 12, 2022
Carter, a Hall of Famer, said on FanDuel TV’s “Up & Adams” this week that he spoke with Tom Sr. before the Tampa Bay quarterback’s last NFL Super Bowl victory in 2021.
“The night before the game, I happen to meet up with Tom Brady’s dad and asked him what he thought about the game, the opportunity to win again,” Carter told host Kay Adams. “He said the only thing he’s worried about is the kid, the kid won’t go home. He said ‘the kid is outside still playing, and he won’t come in. It’s raining, everything.’ He said, ‘I am only afraid the kid won’t stop playing even if he wins.’ He won that game and he’s still playing.”
Tom Brady Sr. told HuffPost this Thursday that he: “didn’t remember that comment at all.” Conveniently.
The younger Brady is enduring a difficult season after he called off his retirement. His performance has fallen off, the Buccaneers are 6-7 and he went through a divorce.
We wish Tom the best. Tom Sr., it’s time to sit back down on the bench and get off your son’s case.
