«So when the narrative is interrupted or the timeline of your narrative is interrupted, in the same way that happened with Tom Brady’s pseudo-retirement last year, when Jeff Darlington and Adam Schefter broke the news that Tom was leaving suddenly people are [like] ‘oh holy hell, let’s move things. We have to do some things. That could be part of it.
