    Ah, yes, a Brett Favre Rule.

    March 2008 - retired
    August 2008 - signs with Jets

    February 2009 - retired
    August 2009 - signs with Vikings

    December 2010 - retired
    January 2011 - signed final NFL retirement papers

    2013 - SL Rams ask him to sign with them . . . he did not, citing cumulative concussion problems.

    2021 - restarts quarterback career . . . with Jerry Rice as his primary wide-out! . . . on TV ads.

    Brady to join Fox after retirement.

    https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...pay-tom-brady/

    "Surely, he’ll walk through the door as the highest paid of any of the current analysts. Why else would he have agreed to do it, if he wasn’t going to be making more than CBS’s Tony Romo or ESPN’s Troy Aikman?"

    It wasn't paid for yet. They would have needed a legal battle to force the buyer to pay -- a battle they might not win. Simpler and cheaper to just void the sale. They might have handled it differently if they'd already received the money.

    i wonder if the ball now takes on any special "last one that wasn't" status and still sells for a stupid amount of money

    Right now, the ball is still his last touchdown ball, and will remain that way for at least 5 months.

    Brady was drafted into the NFL in April 2000. In the draft next month, it's likely that at least 25% of the players who will be drafted were not yet born when he was drafted.

    I think this is an eg. of wit?
    She's been supportive of Brady in the past so my guess is the sentiment is sincere.

    If the auction house listed the lot as "last one", they certainly should.. . . Assuming he does throw another one.

    Or more precisely, too much money relative to the knowledge and wisdom for what to do with it.

    Does Buyer of Tom Brady’s ‘Last’ Touchdown Ball Have a Case for a Refund?

    "A well-known auctioneer predicts that the auction house that sold Tom Brady's "last" touchdown ball, less than a day before Brady announced he would return to the game, will void the sale.

    But if they don’t, a sports lawyer says the buyer is out of luck.

    Lelands, the auction house that sold the ball on Saturday for $518,625, has had no comment."
