Pats Fans Are Worried That Gisele Could Convince Tom Brady to Retire (Tweets)
Gisele made waves a few days ago when she went on Charlie Rose to discuss her life and her husband Tom Brady’s health as a result of concussions suffered in the NFL. Naturally, these are serious issues, and Pats fans have already begun voicing their concerns that the revelation could be the first step Tom Brady takes toward retirement.
Speaking to Charlie Rose, the supermodel told the world that Brady had suffered a concussion as recently as last year:
“He has concussions pretty much every…I mean we don’t talk about it. But he has concussions and I don’t really think it’s a healthy thing for your body to go through. You know, that kind of aggression all the time, that cannot be healthy for you. I’m planning on having him be healthy and do a lot of fun things when we’re like 100 I hope.”
It didn’t take Pats fans long to make the next logical step:
@EvCoRadio Gisele has said publicly that she wants Brady to retire. She did this intentionally for his own good

@CBSNews Sounds like Gisele wants him to retire now. What more is there to prove?

The comments ranged from concerned and sympathetic, like the ones above, to nonsense like this:
Gisele … shh. Just shh. You opening your mouth won’t make him retire. Deal with it. When he is ready, he will hang it up.

Others looked for a slightly more sinister motivation:
Part of me wonders if Gisele spilling the beans publicly about Brady’s concussions is to put more pressure on him to retire.

Either way, I would say that she’s in her proper lane as the guy’s wife, but never underestimate the ability of rabid sports fans to miss the bigger picture.
