Shawn Hochuli Reveals Exactly Why Tom Brady Was Flagged for 1st Ever Unsportsmanlike Conduct

Tom Brady was a bad boy.

For the very first time in Tom Brady’s illustrious NFL career, he was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.

In the first half, Von Miller hit Brady in the chin, which left him with a bloodied lip, but no penalty was called. Brady then went at referee Shawn Hochuli, who ended up flagging the 44-year-old quarterback.

Following the game Hochuli explained what happened, and why he had to flag Tom.

“He got in my face in an aggressive manner and used abusive language,” he said. “As for the hit, we did not think that it rose to the level of roughing the passer.”

As for Tom Brady’s thoughts on the flag.

“I don’t know. I’ll probably be fined if I say something,” he said to reporters.

Tom Brady will now reportedly take some time to decide if he wants to play another NFL season.
