I know this is a sports topic, but it seems like a relevant enough topic to post here. What drives someone to make a decision like this? For those not in the know he retired last March and then in May decided to unretire for at least one more season. This pissed off Gisele and she has now basically given him an ultimatum me or football.
Relevent details here are that he has played in 11 Super Bowls and won 8 of them which is 3 more than any other player in NFL history. He is widely regarded as the greatest football player of all time. At 43 years old he literally cannot add anything to his football career. He has already done it all and more. He can only subtract from it which he is doing. He is on the first 3 game losing streak of his career and he predictably looks a little old. He was also offered a cushy role on Fox on their Sunday pregame crew for over $10 million a year.
Why give up your intelligent, richer than you, seemingly great mother, and very attractive wife for one more year of bad football when you have nothing to prove? I don’t understand.
Given the rapidly changing social structure and women being on equal footing in younger generations we are seeing the exact same type of behavior from women. People are selfish would be a better answer.
he has been in 10 and won 7 of them. (not 11 as in OP)
I do not understand this current season. seemed clear that he had no more mountains to climb. there was no chance that Tampa could “get the band together” and so this season would be an enormous challenge. when he retired and unretired it was weird.happens a lot w athletes, but there was something weirder about it given that he notably had family to spend more time with. 10 days later (or whatever) he was done spending time w them? his wife has a lot of reasons to be pissed about how 2022 has gone.
It’s really hard to judge how a marriage / family life is going from the outside. You can often see someone every week and have no idea that inside the home they constantly yell at each other. There’s much more to a happy marriage than having someone who is hot. If he retired at first and realized hey this person that I never really saw much before since I was so engrossed in football doesn’t actually mesh well with me now that I have all this time he would then say well it’s over, we are getting divorced, I might as well unretire so I have something to do with my days.
