Dan Patrick took part in the Let’s Go! podcast town hall this week and had a particular question to ask Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.

Brady and Jim Gray invited a star-studded sports media cast onto this week’s show to pepper the QB with all manner of questions.

“I wanted to tap into something that I’ve talked about on this show,” Patrick said on The Dan Patrick Show. “I was gonna sign a five-year contract [at ESPN], and I turned that down because my wife said, ‘the kids are all going to be grown up like you’re gonna miss out on this.'”

Brady has said for a while that he wants to play through his age-45 season, and even floated the idea of playing until he turns 50. He’s leading the league in most major statistical passing categories, proving that he still has plenty in the tank. Patrick wanted to know if the calls of family, not father time, would eventually decide for him.

“I wonder,” Patrick said on the SiriusXM Let’s Go podcast. “You’re 44, you have your kids, but that tug of war of wanting to be great, but also you know, your wife saying, if she does say. How do you kind of juggle that where you don’t feel guilty going to work?”

Brady responded honestly to the personal question from one dad to another. Patrick mentioned in his analysis of the interview that he wasn’t interested in asking football questions.

“It’s the same thing in this house,” Brady said. “I think my wife, as you know, held down the house for a long time now. I think there are things she wants to accomplish. She hasn’t worked as much over the last 10-12 years, you know, just raising our family and kind of committing to a life in Boston.

Brady took a second to collect his thoughts before finishing the response.

“It’s a very difficult issue to reconcile without just saying, hey it’s time to retire,” Brady said. “I think, you know, we are coming to the end here too.”

If you’re serious about Fantasy Football, the Sports Gambling Podcast Network is bringing back a tradition you’ll want to pay attention to. 

For the second year in a row, Ryan Kramer will draft 24 different teams over the course of a 24 hour marathon that will be streamed across multiple video platforms. 

“Fortunately, the analytics research is done so I can focus now on news coming out of the camps to sharpen my views and deliver the well-reasoned selections that people need to get an edge in their drafting,” Kramer said in a press release. “It’s a bit of an audacious undertaking, but the growing phenomenon of Fantasy Football deserves this level of commitment and our SGPN audiences always respond.” 

The event begins at 3 pm on Tuesday and is dubbed “Draft Day 2.0”. All of the content will originate from the Sports Gambling Podcast Network’s studios in Los Angeles. 

The marathon will also be a fundraiser. The network is using GoFundMe to raise funds for a colleague named Darryl injured in a motorcycle accident earlier this year. A portion of proceeds generated from the sale of Sports Gambling Podcast Network branded apperal will also go to the effort.

Though there’s still some time before a finished products reaches bookshelves, but ESPN’s Paul Finebaum is reportedly set to get a nice six-figure advance by Penguin Press.

According to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, Finebaum will make $700,000 plus royalties for the deep dive into the rivalry between the two SEC head coaches.

Back in the spring things came to a head between Alabama’s Nick Saban and Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher, as the two engaged in a verbal spat in separate press conferences over name, image and likeness.

Saban said Fisher and his staff utilized NIL and “bought every player” in the Aggies’ spring 2022 recruiting class.

Things got so heated and drew so many headlines that SEC commissioner Greg Sankey had to step in and try to get the former colleagues to cool it.

Finebaum is teaming up with Alabama beat reporter John Talty to write the book.
