Last weekend, the leading quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers did not attend his team’s walkthrough. Why was Tom Brady missing from the practice session? The elite QB attended a surprise wedding of the billionaire owner of the New England Patriots, Robert Kraft. His attendance drew some criticism from fans. Not only did fans talk about his disappearance from the training session, but the host of his podcast show also took a jab at the shot-caller.

Tom Brady missed the quick walk-through practice on Saturday morning in Tampa. He frequently takes a day off from practice during the week. But for the past two weeks, he has missed none of the days when the offense was heavily installed.

The former Patriots QB attended the celebrity-studded wedding of 87-year-old billionaire and 47-year-old Dr Dana Blumberg at Hall des Lumières, according to several reports. With the Patriots for 20 seasons, Brady won six Super Bowls. Musicians like Ed Sheeran, Meek Mill, and Elton John performed at the wedding. Since Kraft brought his guests to the location on the pretense of a ‘Kickoff and a Touchdown’ party, the event took aback the majority of the 200 attendees.

The host of Brady’s weekly podcast, Jim Gray, taunted him in a light-hearted way. Gray asked, “ Any weddings on the schedule Friday night?” The seven-time Super Bowl-winning QB replied after heartily laughing, “Nothing scheduled for now; we’ll see how the week goes.”

Why did Tom Brady receive the short end of the stick for attending a wedding?

Right after the wedding, the Bucs were to face the Pittsburgh Steelers. Unfortunately, the Pewter Pirates lost the matchup by a score of 20-18. The fight was a difficult one. Fans even saw Tampa Tom burst out in anger at his offensive linemen. Although it was to inspire them, it looked pretty intense.

In order to attend Robert Kraft’s wedding on Friday night, Brady made the trip to New York City. Few players, who skipped work on Saturday, would have the authority to address colleagues in that manner on Sunday. But few players have Brady’s reputation. Also, fans showed concern for the elite quarterback because of how he looked in the group picture.
