Man in the Arena: Tom Brady (ESPN) -- 9-part documentary series on Tom Brady -- Coming in 2021




Coming in 2021, Man in the Arena: Tom Brady is a 9-episode series that will focus on Bradyís first-hand account of the most iconic moments of his NFL career, including each of his 9 Super Bowl appearances with the New England Patriots, along with the smaller, seemingly insignificant instances that became pivotal events and paved the path for Brady's journey.

No thanks.

Does anyone understand that there was more than one player on the Patriots when Brady played but funny that no one is ever mentioned.

He's one of the greatest NFL players of all-time, but I know that the majority of NFL fans outside of the East coast and Massachusetts hate him,

I'm sure ESPN and NFL Films will do a good job with this.

What are they going to talk about for 9 parts? His story isn't nearly as interesting as Jordan.

The only thing that would make this compelling is if they went into detail with the Brady/Belichik divorce. The problem is it's too early to talk about as this is a special that would be better in 5-6 years after both of them are retired. More years, comes more perspective, and they might be more apt to open up. I highly doubt you will get the full story on their divorce right now simply because the are both in the league and other players may not be keen to talk either (if they are still on the Patriots or playing with Brady in Tampa).

There are the cheating "scandals", but those have already been talked ad nauseam.

As much exposure as he has had, I really don't know much about the guy. But really, I don't care either, pass.

Problem there is Bill will never open up to a camera crew about everything. So we'll never get the full story.

Not everyone needs a multi-part 30 for 30. If ESPN wanted to do another 8-10 part one, they could have done one about Kobe.

No one will care about this series unless you are from Boston. It won’t cover his upcoming downfall in Tampa Bay.

I miss sports, but I will never be desperate enough to watch this. Pass!

I saw the preview for this last night and it said it was exclusive to ESPN plus.

Brady certainly is one of the greatest NFL players to ever play but he has the personality of dish water and not a very interesting personal history. I canít imagine what they are going to cover for nine episodes.

They need to add the clip of him saying that defensive players aren't very bright and are basically dogs chasing cars. I thought that was kind of funny.

I find this a little premature. He still has 3 or 4 Super Bowls left in him.

I look forward to a Sunday of football I don't need to ignore Tom Brady. Just retire already, you have nothing, and I mean nothing, left to prove.

Unless this airs on regular ESPN I won't watch and it is football; season with all the games who has the time.

Because no one would watch?

Although they could do one interesting episode that covered their drug fueled collapse of 1982.
