“I’ve actually prepared a statement that I wanted to say, and it’s really all that I have to say on the subject. Comments made by Thomas Edward Brady, a 77-year-old insurance company CEO, who should know better at this point in his life, don’t necessarily reflect the views or positions held by his son, Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, Jr. So furthermore, should Tom Sr. continue to speak out on behalf of his son without the express written consent, Junior reserves the right to eventually put him in a home against his will. That’s all I have to say.”

“He’s the most loving, caring, honest man in the world and without him there’s no way I’d be in the position that I’m in, he’s there to support me, win or lose. He’s been on the field coming off year in, year out. And my biggest supporter,” Brady said on the podcast.
