It has been over a week since Tom Brady took to social media and announced that he was leaving the New England Patriots and continue his career elsewhere. A few days later, he would make it official when he signed with the Tampa Bay Bucs.
Katie Nolan, who is a lifelong Patriots fan, was not a fan of the move at all.
During ESPN’s “Highly Questionable,” with the panelists taking a light-hearted approach to the subject, Nolan got her chance to speak and lashed out towards the 42-year-old.
“We have just put more thought into the words that come out of Terry Bradshaw’s mouth than Terry Bradshaw ever has,” Nolan said. “He’s just saying words, he’s just being Terry Bradshaw. We’re overanalyzing it.
“Of course it’s ego. Everything everybody does has a little bit of ego in it. Dan, you call it being human, most people would call that kind of your ego. Whatever. I’m at the point now, I’m mad at Tom Brady. Can we talk about that? I’m upset.”
“Today was the first day in my life I ever said the phrase … ‘Eff Tom Brady.’ I said it out loud,” she said. “I was listening to the press conference, the conference call, and I said, ‘F–k you.’ And then I was like, ‘Oh my God, that’s Tom Brady.’”
“He gave discount after discount to that team and I understand why he would feel underappreciated,” Le Batard said of Brady. “I don’t think it’s ego, as much as, the dude was just hurt at the end that the people he should’ve had the most value for, he didn’t have the kind of value that he had in some place like Tampa. That’s human to be hurt by that, no matter how superhuman you think he is, it is very human to find that a vulnerable position to be in.”
Things won’t truly be real until we finally see Brady actually dawning another jersey and tossing passes on the field as a Buc.
