Like him or not, football fans listen when Tom Brady, who is widely recognized as one of the best signal callers to ever play in the National Football League, gives his opinion.

That may change for some, with his latest expert opinion going viral. 

And Tom Brady lit into modern sports stars for a surprising reason.

Tom Brady dropped a truth bomb about what social media is doing to the next generation of athletes

Early in his career with the New England Patriots, Tom Brady shared the field with tough-nosed, grid-iron traditionalists like Troy Brown, Bruce Armstrong, Willie McGinest, Tedy Bruschi, Ted Johnson, and Ty Law. 

When he ended his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers more than two decades later, the quarterback was playing with a largely different makeup of players. 

Over the span of his career, society in the United States completely changed. 

One of the events that facilitated that change was social media. 

Social media allows everyone to be the center of their own world – which has a tendency to create a self-centered lens for users. 

That’s why Generation Z is often referred to as the “Selfie Generation” and “Generation Me”.  

And Brady believes the self-centered attitudes of many of today’s players aren’t good for the game or America’s youth. 

Tom Brady vs. Social Media 

Tom Brady is widely considered one of the best leaders in the history of sports. 

The seven-time Super Bowl winner put the team above everything else – and if you wanted to be a Patriot, you had better follow suit. 

Brady spoke about the lack of a team mentality in the players coming up through the pipeline recently in an interview on the DeepCut podcast.

“I think the biggest problem with a lot of f***ing kids these days is it’s all about them,” Brady said while getting a haircut. “It’s all about them. Their brand, their social media. When it’s about ‘me’ and not ‘us,’ well there’s no way to succeed as a team if all you’re doing is thinking about how selfish it is for you to get the attention.”

The comments from the 15-time Pro Bowler aren’t much different than a little leaguer might hear from his coach when reciting the old adage, “there is no ‘I’ in ‘team.’” 

Tom Brady vs. Arch Manning 

Brady can look to his rivals – the Manning family – as an example. 

Last month, Outkick Sports reported that the latest Manning family quarterback, Arch Manning, opted out of being paid to have his name and likeness in a video game because he was unhappy with his depth chart position. 

Is that a move Peyton or Eli would have made? 

Peyton and Eli Manning won a total of four Super Bowls with the Colts, Broncos, and Giants. 

But no player has a better track record of success than Brady. 

So, young athletes could learn a lot from his words of advice – as opposed to just letting it go in one ear and out the other with an “okay, Boomer.”
