Tom Brady‘s looming appearance on The Shop: Uninterrupted created a major buzz when they posted a 30-second clip of the Tampa Bay Bucs QB talking about an unknown team not wanting him during his free agency period.
“One of the teams, they weren’t interested at the very end. I was thinking, you’re sticking with that motherf–ker?”
The episode debuted on Friday and played his full comments about that team. Paul Rivera said “Tom probably had no desire to go to that team, but now it’s like, why don’t you want me?”
Brady certainly agreed.
“When I look back I’m like, there’s no f–king way I would’ve went to that team,” Brady said. “But they said they didn’t want me. I know what that means, I know what that feels like. And I’m gonna go f–k you up because of that.”
Draymond Green, who was also on the show, talked about how he gets fined whenever he actually speaks his mind which prompted Brady to be asked if he ever wants to just let it rip when speaking publicly. Brady admitted that he’s giving PR answers most of the time:
“What I say vs. what I think are two totally different things. I would say 90 percent of what I say is probably not what I’m thinking. Which is challenging, you know? And I really admire people that actually can do that, and say what they think, because they invite a lot of other things into their life. And I think there’s part of me that doesn’t like conflict. So in the end I just always try to play it super flat.”
On the football side, Brady also likes to limit what he says publicly.
“From a strategic standpoint, I never want to give away like what we’re doing, you know what I’m saying? Like, I usually say the opposite. Like if they’ve got a [crappy] corner, I’ll be like, ‘That guy’s unbelievable! I don’t know how they even complete balls over there!’ In my mind, I’m going like, ‘I’m going at that mother [bleeper] all day!’ You know? Because I don’t want to give them any [strategic plans].”
“And then when it comes to other things, I think there’s part of it that’s, you know, so much is giving other people your power. You know? Like, why can what Chelsea says really affect me? In my view, it shouldn’t. Or else you have power over me based on what you say. I try to think a lot before I speak. Some people — like my wife for example, she just lets it come out. It’s like FWOOM and it’s out, and I’m like, ‘Holy s—!’ And you know what? She’s right. Her instincts and her nature is usually right with a lot of things that she says and thinks. And I’m always like, ‘How does she do that?’ Because I gotta think about it for five or ten minutes and think how do I really deal with this particular situation or answer? Because I don’t want to say something that in the end I’ll be like, ‘Ah, I wish I would’ve said something different.’”
