That's a very good question but I think there is a little time before a decision need to be made since it is mid June. Hopefully by then we will return to some type of normalcy

I guess we have to settle the debate if we make any money off of it first, then we can worry about it.

I'm truly realizing we are all going to have to be patient. But I'm confident (like you are) we can pull thru this with a little common sense and some patience.

My completely uninformed guess is some sort of unresolved Oedipus Complex/need to leave home thing. Hard to imagine it's the salary, at least if he's thinking rationally. While he could probably get more from elsewhere, his licensing value will plummet if he has less than an All Pro year in another town. Plus between the insane cash he and his wife have already made...

Bruce explains it well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGORr7_Wp6A

I think Brady was screwed over by the Patriots last year. He has take less salary than market every year supposedly so it could be spent on the rest of the team. The Patriots had the worst offensive weapons in years. They certainly didnít spend on receivers. So when it was time for a new contract I donít blame him one bit for leaving especially where you know they wanted him to take another discount.

Even as a Giant fan I agree with you. Throughout his career he has taken less money and spread out salary to allow the Patriots cap room to sign other players He could have been selfish and ham-stringed the team like Brees and Rivers have done in the past.

I wonder whether Brady will sign with a team that plays NE during the regular season?

Even if he doesn't, it's conceivable that he could face them in the playoffs.

Oh, what a feeling that might cause NE (and Brady) fans.

Why wait till you're 42 years old? Ole Tom doesn't need any money just another ring and I think he made a big mistake!

Iíll stand by my original comment... he was screwed over. I think he was leaving at any price. Heíll never admit it because heís a class act.

It's beyond obvious that Belichick has been pushing Tom out the door...

I lived in Ranger country at this time. Can't say I was sorry to see ( a dreaded Boston player) him come to NY!

Rangers spent some early season practice time in our local rink, in Darien, before ice got laid down in Rye.

I don't think Phil ever went to any of these very early-season workouts.

I mostly remember how HUGE Barry Beck seemed standing on skates!

Just minutes after reports first went public of Brady choosing Tampa Bay, the Ticketmaster queue for Buccaneers season tickets absolutely exploded. It went from 972 to nearly 2,000 in a matter of seconds.

I hope Brady has a greater effect on TB then Montana did on KC. Iíd really like to see him go out on top, even if it isnít in NE.

RBG, you and I can agree on something! I too hope he's phenomenally successful.

I'm a big football fan but this doesn't change my life one bit. It's a business just like any other. Maybe if the Patriots aren't very good next year it will fee up more of my Sundays.
It's all about the $$$$$$. I'm surprised it took him this long to leave. He's left a lot of money on the table.
