That’s just not right.
In a recent interview, future Hall of Famer quarterback Tom Brady compared the rigors of the NFL season to those of military action.
According to CBS Sports, Brady spoke to basketball pro Kevin Durant on the Let’s Go podcast. Brady’s episode was released on Monday.
“I look at the football season almost like you’re going to play,” the Buccaneers quarterback said of his career.
“It’s like, ‘Man, here I am again.’ There’s only one way to do it.”

The conversation came amid reports of Brady’s marriage to Gisele Bundchen being under strain due to his seemingly never-ending career in sports.
For one, expatriate service members don’t have the ability to come home to their mansions after games and daily practices like Tom Brady does.
And don’t start with the reports that Brady was kicked out of his family home; The multi-millionaire has an entire portfolio of mansions for his personal use, according to the New York Post.
Even an MSBNC moderator criticized Brady’s flawed and self-serving comparison.

Some veterans relocated to correct the GOAT after it confiscated their life experiences as his own.
For Tom Brady, playing football is like a military operation.
We both wear uniforms and our marriages/relationships can be strained, but that’s where the similarities end.
He plays a game to entertain people. We risk our lives to defend this country.

Many Americans who were deployed to a combat zone never returned to their families, period. That’s a fact Brady should understand, that it’s totally inapplicable to an NFL career, arduous as it is.
It’s true that many NFL players deal with lifelong health consequences as a result of their careers in the sport, but so do many American veterans.
A 2016 study concluded that veterans are 40 percent more likely to suffer from chronic pain than civilians
Needless to say, military personnel gamble in order to defend the Constitution and Americans. Soccer players take a risk of injury for elite compensations to entertain their crowd.

An Army Ranger veteran slammed the quarterback for the comparison in an Instagram post Wednesday.
“Hey [Tom Brady] – This statement is naive and offensive on so many levels. You’re playing a game for entertainment and you seem to have lost your perspective,” Army ‘Black Hawk Down’ veteran Brad Thomas said of Brady’s comments.
The football legend’s unparalleled career speaks for itself, but Brady was seriously wrong when he compared an NFL season to a military deployment.
Sometimes people worthy of admiration say things that are wrong and offensive. Football’s GOAT should sincerely apologize for the botched and inaccurate comparison.
