Tom Brady let his emotions get the best of him in a frustrating loss to the New Orleans Saints. The offense could do nothing and scored zero points as the Saints defense got under his skin all night long.
Brady threw a late interception to seal the loss and frustratingly smashed a Microsoft Surface tablet on the sidelines.
In his ‘Let’s Go’ podcast on SiriusXM radio, Brady said that he received a stern warning from the NFL regarding his tablet smash.
“I did get a warning from the NFL,” Brady said with chuckle on his “Let’s Go!” podcast with Jim Gray on SiriusXM on Monday night. “I can’t throw another Surface or else I get fined. Imagine that! Imagine that.”
Brady apologized for the incident, which he said was done out of frustration after he threw an interception late in the fourth quarter. It rendered the device useless and required a replacement.
“I won’t throw another Surface,” Brady said. “Although I think it was pretty good marketing for the Surface at the end of the day. I think it worked out pretty well for them.”
You heard it from the source, smash another tablet and you will be fined for it.
The Saints won 9-0, giving Brady his first shutout loss in 15 seasons.
To make matters worse, after the game, Saints safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson rubbed it in even more when he posted, “Hey @Microsoft @surface, can y’all send me a new Surface Tablet? I need to give it to a friend who broke his. Thank you and Merry Christmas.”
Microsoft Support responded, “We’ve reviewed the tape and while we don’t recommend throwing your @surface (even if your friend holds the NFL record for career completions), here are some tips on caring for your Surface.”
The NFL has been using the Microsoft Surface as its exclusive tablet since 2014.
