TB12 wanted to try something new, and he seen the potential in Tampa Bay. It really was a perfect fit for him. I can't blame him. I'm not a Tampa Bay fan, but, I get why he left for there though.
Just an observation.
Of course it's phony. The last thing people from Boston want in an athlete is a primadonna phony from California and that's what he turned into. And that doesn't even count the weirdness and creepy antics on the back end of it, namely his Facebook documentary and constant passive-aggressive behavior acting like someone in their teens or early 20s.He has done more than one Subway commercial. I don't think that he said that in each commercial.
But Subway thought it was a good idea to pay someone to say " I don't eat this shit, but it's really great".
It's still phoney on his part.
