Back in February, Bucs quarterback and potential copywriter Tom Brady announced his retirement by tell the world He needs to “concentrate my time and energy on other things that require my attention.” It was a less compelling reiteration of the “I want to spend more time with my family” sentiments that every famous man tosss around whenever he retires, goes on a casual vacation, or quits in disgrace but doesn’t want to admit any of the bad bits.
So it was all too easy for the general public to ignore Brady’s justifications for leaving the NFL, and throw off the idea of him retiring. Do you know how many instances of public outcry I have witnessed in my life? I won’t believe myself until the day I retire. Everything about Brady’s brief stint as a retiree reeks of cheating, especially after Bruce Ariane was kicked upstairs, and after the bizarre charges against dolphins for courting Brady to be a player/owner, came to light. He did not plan to retire at all.
