Well, at the time of the interview, he couldn't have dreamed someone would offer him over 1/3 of a billion to be on TV before he retired. I understand that means he can't spend every single waking minute in the role of husband/dad, but his workload will be much less taxing, and I'm guessing the family is OK with getting filthy rich(er) with hubby/dad taking this part-time gig. I can't fault him/them for that.
Again, his sappy interview or statement is why he gets laughed at.
He didn't say "my kids deserve me like 10 mil a year, you know, maybe 20, but north of 30? Yeah, Tommy deserves that green. I mean Giselle has her shampoo, and shit, but is she getting a third of bill in her 50s? Naw she ain't but Tommy is. Man I came across lame and wooden in an entourage cameo and they throwing this much. Hell yeah, I can hire Jimmy G to raise my kid."
Also I would be more interested in listening to my fictional version of Brady do games.
"So third and six, what would you do Tommy?"
"SHit man, I am like ten times better, not when I was his age, but right now, up here in my UGs drunk off my ass, ten times better than Mitch tblisky or whatever. So that's a bad question. But this fool I expect he throws to the tight end for a four yard gain then they punt and lose."
