Tom Brady Thinks the NFLPA is Trash and Isn’t a Fan of The 17th Game

Even the G.O.A.T. in the NFL when it comes to the QB position won’t take light to NFL rules changing.

Tom Brady and the Buccaneers are currently 6-2 and are on a quest to repeat as the defending Super Bowl champions.

However, Brady isn’t a fan of how the NFL handled adding a 17th game to the regular season and essentially says the NFLPA is trash via his podcast.

“I think it’s pointless,” Brady said regarding the expanded regular season. “I thought it was a terrible decision. So I don’t like the fact that we’re playing a 17th game at all. I think sixteen is plenty. And, again, you’re eight games into the year and you’re not halfway through, so that’s kind of a little frustrating aspect. So whatever, I mean, we’ll play it. It’s there, you know, a lot of guys probably miss games over the course of the season anyway, so they probably don’t play all sixteen, most guys. But, you know, if you’re fortunate to be able to make it through a season and you got to play the 17th game, I think there’s a lot of things that I would adjust to, you know, the offseason, you know, the regular-season schedule. A lot of people know my feelings on some of these topics. I’ve been pretty vocal about NFL issues over the last couple of years and some of the things that are done that I don’t necessarily think are in the best interests of the game.”

“Because the owners haven’t had to listen to the players,” Brady said. “Because usually what the owners want the owners get. So, you know, that’s just the way the business has gone. And we need strong union leadership from the player standpoint and a unified union in order to have the right amount of leverage to negotiate what we think is appropriate for an NFL player. But right now it’s more like we get told what to do and, yeah, there’s a vote and a CBA, but the choice is: don’t play or play under these circumstances. And we’ve essentially agreed to play under their circumstances.”

Some teams would have a Bye week and Brady just wishes the schedule didn’t interfere with the original.

This is the first time the schedule was expanded since 1978.
