Tom Brady Says His Past Concussions Are Not ‘Anybody’s Business’

Concussions have grown to be one of the biggest issues facing the NFL. Many former players are now facing life threatening conditions due to the head trauma they suffered during their time in the NFL. While this area still has a lot of unknown to it, one thing is for sure: concussions are very dangerous.

Tom Brady is now in the concussion spotlight. This situation came about when his wife, Gisele Bundchen, publicly stated that Brady has dealt with concussions in the past when this type of injury was never reported by the media or was common knowledge amongst NFL fans.

When asked about whether or not he suffered from a concussion in 2016, Brady responded by explaining that it’s not “anybody’s business.”

“I don’t want to get into things that happened in my past, certainly medical history and so forth, I really don’t think that’s anybody’s business,” Brady said, via Pro Football Talk. “There’s people that do worry about that. My wife, my parents, my sisters, people that love me and care about me, but I do the best I can do to come out and be prepared to play mentally and physically and give the game everything I can.”

Brady went on to add that football players except this risk when they take the field every time.

“You’re not blind to it as a player,” Brady explained. “It’s a contact sport and I think we all understand that. And there’s a lot of great benefits that football brings you. You certainly can be put in harm’s way.”

As long as Brady is being safe and not pushing it too far, it is nobody’s business. If he is crossing the line and putting himself on the field when he should not be, however, then it becomes a problem that needs to be addressed.

What Brady was saying in this statement was that it was on any of the general public’s business, and he is completely right.
