Brady emphasized that all of these players, including himself, had the same goal in mind: “We were out there for one reason to win. There was no other reason…..Tiger Woods wasn’t trying to make friends, we weren’t trying to make friends and I love when I see other people like that man.” Instead of establishing friends on the field, in his opinion, the true core of the game is the unrelenting quest of win. Brady emphasized that he identifies more with these legendary personalities and other sports figures who share similar philosophy than with those who embrace after victories.
