Speaking in the ‘Let’s Go! With Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald, and Jim Gray’ podcast, TB12 highlighted the fact that when you’re playing for the team, it’s like going to war. And when you are at war it’s natural that emotions will be coming out and it’s tough to control them.

To support his argument, Tom Brady gave examples of other great athletes who too have had a moment of madness as emotions caught upto them like boxing great Mike Tyson biting off his opponent’s ear or French footballing icon Zinedine Zidane headbutting Matterrazi!

There’s so much emotion you are in. It’s like you are in a battle out there. It’s a physical battle. Sometimes it just bursts out. It’s an emotional game. Again, look at sports, look at sports all around Zinedine Zidane head-butted the guy, Mike Tyson biting Holyfield’s ear,” said Tom Brady.

“I see some iconic sports brands, the coaches, the players, and sometimes the emotions get the best of us. You have got to live with it for the rest of your life. And that’s okay. It’s better to have that emotion and feeling. Because it feels like being alive, you know, rather than being dead without any feelings. I choose to be alive and live with it.”
