When asked whether or not he suffered a concussion last season, Tom Brady was not ready to give a straight answer
Earlier this summer, Gisele Bundchen set the sporting world on fire when she went on television and claimed that her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, suffered a concussion during his Super Bowl-winning season last year. Concussions are obviously the big topic of discussion in the sport at the moment, but when maybe the greatest quarterback of all time is brought into the fold, especially by his wife of all people, that magnifies things a bit.
With the Patriots just opening training camp, you knew that the 40-year-old signal-caller was going to be pegged about his wife’s comments from earlier this year. He in fact was by the media and, well, his answer won’t please those who were looking for a straight answer.
Basically, in the words of Brady, it’s none of your business whether or not he suffered a concussion last year.
Brady noted that his medical history really isn’t anyone’s business, and to an extent he’s right. Everyone’s medical history is a private matter and that’s why we have laws to protect against that sort of thing.
But on the flip side of that, the game of football is suffering at the moment from all the concussion-related issues. It’s a problem that’s not going away anytime soon, so it would be a little helpful for the face of the NFL to speak up if something was wrong with him in that regard last year. Better to know now from Brady than 30 years from now when it’s too late to do anything about it.
Nonetheless, for better or worse for his own health, Brady is choosing to be mum on the subject and just look toward garnering himself yet another Super Bowl ring to add to his collection this coming season.
