Social media is another reason why the NFL is becoming an unwatchable product. It’s unfortunate but these days players care more about the short-term than the long-term. Tom Brady agrees and says that there’s a cultural shift where young players crave unsustainable TikTok fame.
Brady said (via CBS News): “People think that because people are paying attention or they’re liking something, that actually means something. And I think if you want to build something great, that’s over a long period of time.” The all-time great knows what he’s talking about but some young stars will call him a dinosaur.
