The Financial Power Of Brady

April 8th, 2020

One interesting highlight of Tom Brady’s appearance with the “King of All Media,” Howard Stern, was about money.

Stern at one point told Brady he’s getting taken to the cleaners on his salary adding that he should think about how much cash Team Glazer is going to pocket solely because Brady is on the roster.

Stern, as usual, has a solid point. And miraculously a few moments later, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, offered an example of Brady’s financial power.

Seems like Bucs gear and Brady’s Bucs gear, in particular, are flying off the shelves.

Joe has no idea what cut owners get off the top for gear sales. But if this is a sign of how much Brady will generate revenue the next two years, Team Glazer has to be chuckling as they lounge on Ed Glazer’s back patio and Ed orders the help staff to get another round of Tanquerey and Schweppes on the rocks for his brothers.

    But that’s the worse thing you could wear if your an adult: A Tom Brady Jersey with BRADY in back

    When you buy it just hang it on your wall in a frame. Dont ever go into public with it

    Brady Jerseys = 50 year olds who wear Du- rags

    as LaMarcus types in his parachute pants….”Can’t Touch This “

    A football jersey is not the worst thing an adult could wear.

    Not by a long shot.

  4. ZZbuc Says:

    Joe, I know is a very uncomfortable question for everybody, but sooner or later the general public needs to talk about it…..Is there going to be an NFL season? My answer is nobody knows……
    And what if there is no season with al this big contracts?
    Just wondering, just thinking out loud, and openning the debate…..

  5. Buc1987 Says:

    LaMarcus…that’s all you’re going to see is #12 jersey’s at RJS.

    Many grown adults won’t agree with you.

  6. LaMarcus Says:

    Btw….. I’m getting either Devin White, Bunting, or Dean Jersey for sure

  7. Joe Says:


    No clue. That’s uncharted territory. The NFL has never missed a season.

  8. LaMarcus Says:

    Pete I

    I said a “Brady jersey” even if Brady is here that rule still applies

  9. Youngbucs Says:

    LaMarcus you’ve been salty for how many days?
    Drink some water bro

  10. Joe Says:


    Stern just now asked Brady that very question. Even Brady didn’t know. Said he would have to check.

  11. Pete I Says:

    We will not be locked down come September, the country can’t survive it and eventually the people won’t go for it.

    98% cannot be sequestered for the 2% who are at risk from this disease.

    A football season in some form will be played. Both college and pro.

    But there are always “the sky is falling” crowd.

  12. buccinfan Says:

    Joe, can you imagine how many jerseys would be sold if Jameis wore that new sweet uniform!? lol Everyone would definitely be giving us more attention. Man what if…

    ZZ Buc

    My bet is that there will be a season…..if not with fans…..without, just like the draft…..the TV rights are simply too much money to pass up.

    With Brady

    Merchandise sales up
    Ratings up
    Buc media coverage up
    Ticket sales up
    Player motivation up
    Turnovers down

  14. ZZbuc Says:

    Thx Joe.UUUU u are the man!!!…Men if there is no season, would be one of the most frustrating experiences on our Bucs life, and we had tons of them!!!!

  15. ZZbuc Says:

    Thx Tampabaybucfan….when you start thinking about it, men…. it takes you to weird thoughts…..

  16. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    LaMarcus, I can’t lie… your comments are pretty annoying sometimes.

    However, I know from a past post, that you are out there on the front lines helping people right now get through all of this mess.

    So today all I wish to say is…

  17. catcard202 Says:

    Joe, the Bucs might get to 10-6 & make the new play-off format in 2020…But this data pretty much proves to me that the TB12 signing was more about Sales & Marketing, than on field result improvements or locker room leadership.

  18. Ryan Thompson Says:

    @LaMarcus – dude, there’s SO many more things in the world to worry about then what people choose to wear. I’ll be wearing my Brady jersey even if he never steps foot on the Tampa grass, he’s the GOAT and he’s a Buc, that’s good enough for me.

  19. LaMarcus Says:

    Yea I’m scared now bro. I’m doing everything in my power to protect myself now and my children

    I know I can be annoying because you guys annoy me way more ….

    But EVERYONE stay safe. There is just now too many ways to catch the Covid now

  20. Buc1987 Says: thoughts are that they might just start the season later than normal.

    Perhaps do away with pre-season altogether.

    We’ll see… news is good news right now.

  21. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    LaMarcus, you & family stay safe too, friend.

  22. LaMarcus Says:

    Thanks Tampa Bay Demon. You and your family stay safe

    Sorry I’m just having to scrap everything now and full family protection mode in Vegas no one wants to stay in the house

  23. Tom Edrington Says:

    We drank Gin and Schweppes in college, especially at afternoon concerts at Mosier’s Farm!!

  24. Defense Rules Says:

    Lamarcus … Didn’t you read Pete I’s earlier comment? “98% cannot be sequestered for the 2% who are at risk from this disease”. IMO, people who listen to advice like that are the ones who end up with coronavirus.

    For me, it comes down to a choice between listening to the Pete I’s of the world or listening to Dr Fauci, the 79-year-old who’s been dealing with infectious diseases like this all his life.

    Hmmm, let me think about it for a second. Yup, Dr Fauci still wins. I think I’ll follow his recommendations instead of Pete’s, although Pete is in 2nd place … in a 2-man race.

  25. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Extremely well said, Defense Rules.

    Thankfully there are a TON more people out there who are taking this seriously and trying to do what is right…. than those who are listening to those who think like Pete.

  26. PSL Bob Says:

    The one and only official NFL jersey I ever bought was in 2010, when Josh Freeman took the promising Bucs to a 10-6 record, barely missing the playoffs. Ok I thought, he’s the real deal. I pulled the trigger and laid out the cash for one of his jerseys. And in true Bucs fashion, Freeman and the Bucs collapsed the following year. The Jersey has been hanging in my closet, unworn, ever since.

    I’m ready to buy a Godwin jersey this year and just hope I don’t jinx him the way I did Freeman.

  27. NOLES Says:

    Jerseys are for players and kids. Adults who wear jerseys are suspect… LOL.. to each his own but I only wore a jersey when I played… its a good rule to follow..

    We started this at FSU and kept tradition as an adult..

  28. Bird Says:

    Defense rules

    Fauchi models that he beings up …keeps going down everyday. In regards to deaths. Originally 1-2 million deaths …then 100,000. – 240,000…then 100,000…then 90,000…then 80,000 And now today 60,000 today. That will continue to go down.

    He said the other day that The entire country should be shut down until they have a vaccine for covid …vaccines take around 18 months

    He worked on HIV/ Aids back in 1980’s and 90’s I believe. They still dont have a vaccine to date ….

    There is a lot of politics going on unfortunately. You are a smart guy. Check out all the sites…careful with most primetime/cable news. They are all now saying the country needs to be shut down for 18 months. Its total BS

    Defense Rules Says:
    “… Dr Fauci, the 79-year-old who’s been dealing with infectious diseases like this all his life.”

    Dr Fauci, who took a $100 million grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation? Dr Fauci, who said 10 days before Donald Trump’s inauguration, that the next administration is going to have to deal with a “surprise” virus outbreak?

    Yup. That Dr Fauci.
