Social media just wants everybody to keep that same energy.
Thursday wasn’t Buccaneers star quarterback Tom Brady’s finest hour as millions watched him not only cost his team by losing track of what down it was in the final minute of a 20-19 loss to the Bears, but Brady also flunked in the sportsmanship department, blowing off Chicago counterpart Nick Foles in the postgame handshake line.
Somehow, all of that trumped him doing something that social media killed LeBron for just days ago.
Brady was spotted running off the field with time left on the clock.

The game isn’t over. Tom Brady is already jogging to the locker room. Where’s all that energy y’all had when Lebron did it? Don’t worry, I’ll wait 🤔 https://t.co/4RpoxzTGmq

Why, to some people, is it acceptable for Tom Brady to leave the field with time left on the clock, but it’s unacceptable for LeBron James to do the same thing? 🤔
