Bucs’ Tom Brady calls out ESPN for tweet about his podcast


Tom Brady takes shot at ESPN over podcast tweet originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Tom Brady ran into a workplace issue at his second job Wednesday.

When Brady isn’t leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to championships as the greatest quarterback of all time, he co-hosts a new weekly podcast on SiriusXM called “Let’s Go! with Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray.”

On the most recent episode, Brady innocently observed that there’s been a shift in the NFL to younger quarterbacks, while players of his era like Drew Brees, Philip Rivers, and Peyton and Eli Manning have all retired.

It was a good quote, so ESPN’s “SportsCenter” account tweeted it out. According to Brady, they forgot something.

Welcome to the internet, Tom.

Brady is far from the first person to complain about a lack of proper citation on Twitter, where content stealing unfortunately is a daily occurrence. But he might be the first Super Bowl-winning quarterback to take matters into his own hands and put ESPN on blast.

While something tells us Brady and his new podcast will be OK, ESPN’s Adam Schefter apparently felt it necessary to cover for his employer.

If Brady’s public shaming of ESPN leads to better content attribution practices on Twitter, we’ll chalk this up as a win.

Brady’s Bucs will look for their second win of the season Sunday when they take on Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons at home.
