There are 2 comments on POV: Tom Brady Compared Life’s Grind to Military Life. Why Would He Do That?

  1. Yes but one can argue that the grind and challenges of a multi millionaire athlete constantly in the spotlight is something that a military service member can’t understand.

    So there may be parallels and differences that are not known to the author because his is a one sided POV. Appreciate the education in military life though,

    1. @BU, I’m sure there is a lot of pressure to perform as a start athlete, but in the end, you are playing a game for a lot of money, and the stakes are actually quite low: no one is going to die; your family won’t be left without a breadwinner; your pay is high enough that you don’t have to worry about money.

      The pressures are entirely different, but the stakes of serving are much higher than someone who plays a game for a living.
