Tom Brady on Being Called GOAT: 'It Makes Me Cringe'

Tom Brady is often referred to as the GOAT – the Greatest of All Time – and now he’s sharing his feelings on the term.

The 41-year-old New England Patriots quarterback, who just won his sixth Super Bowl with the team, is not a fan of being called the GOAT.

“I don’t even like it. It makes me cringe,” Tom said on Good Morning America. He added that he’d rather people say bad things so he could prove them wrong.

“I wish you would say, ‘You’re trash, you’re too old, you’re too slow, you can’t get it done no more,’” he said. “And I’ll say, ‘Thank you very much, I’ll prove you wrong.’”

“The personal criticism, I mean I think I’ll walk off the practice field and be like … ‘That was the worst day, you know, like get your mind right,’” he said. “Sports have always brought that out in me.”
