    this makes me wonder.... when brady divorces gisele (its bound to happen, no superstar athlete ever really stays with their wives), how much will he get from gisele (since she CLEARLY is wealthier than brady is)?

    They'll never split. For one thing, what could either of them go for that's better than what they have now? Also, they're both devout Catholics.

    Yes, but who would have thought tiger woods would be cheating on his wife?

    Anything can happen... and if they do split, i wonder if brady would get anything from gisele

    It obviously hasn't occurred to you that they may be happily married and may continue to be so. How you can extrapolate anything otherwise is mind boggling.

    Aw heck. I just remembered that I'm married and Catholic too. Too bad as I'd figured on snaring Gi$ele'$ billion$ on the rebound. :(

    Tom was not thatdevote with Bridget Monyhan --- (he was acting like 90% of American Catholics in that instance) so I am not too sure the Catholic teachings on divorce are a binding constraint.

    I'm always amazed at how cynical people can be about the Brady-Bundchen marriage and how inevitable it is that it will end in divorce or some kind of scandal. None of us know either of them personally, so this is all just speculation based on their public "personas."

    They both come from similar backgrounds; middle class families, Catholic upbringings.

    They each work in the Entertainment Industry, where they excel because of their physical appearance or abilities.

    They each have had unexpected super-stardom and riches beyond their wildest dreams of avarice thrust upon them at a young age.

    They also each have an almost unlimited future earnings potential based on their careful "branding" of their own images. She is already famous all over the world and he is one of the few male American athletes to build a global image that appeals to both men and women.

    So, they have similar histories and are dealing with the same pressures every day. On the surface, it sure seems they are well-suited to support and help one another.

    Yes. Not as much as a guy like Beckham, but maybe more so than any other US athlete in the 4 major sports. When he was injured in 2008 it was on the sports page of the China Daily.

    I must have missed the part where they ever married...

    Like yeah...really. That's why he selectively markets largely global products like Ugg and Under Armour and Movado as opposed to say some other high profile QB who hawks everything American from Oreo's to credit cards...

    Tom and Gisele can't visit a Mexican water park or hop a boat on the Seine without attracting papperazi. Peyton and Ashley could tour the globe even with Eli and Abby and Archie and Olivia in tow and probably go unnoticed...

    Granted 60% of the global attraction is Gisele driven, but if she'd married a Manning that would be 99% of the attraction...

    Wow. That's surprising. Since you brought up the 4 major sports, I would have expected Lebron and Kobe to head the list with Manning being THE MAN in football (endorsements, etc).

    Most NBA stars suffer from guilt by association (gangsta image). Not to mention each harmed his own appeal with his behavior (Kobe's more like Tiger's whose image is declining at a time when his skills aren't as special as they once were - and Lebron just because he's so damned self absorbed). Manning remains largely a national phenomenon - he doesn't fit the European/intrnational profile and that forehead likely scares the bejesus out of residents in developing markets...

    Brady dodged a small caliber bullit with Bridget, but the way he's handled himself aside from that and in it's aftermath has made him an even more sympathetic and admirable figure globally. You don't necessarily sense it from the hard core NFL community because of rivalry and jealousy. But then they tend to be wired differently than most of the rest of society...which is where his broad appeal lies.

    Oh yeah. A lot of it is, of course, due to Gisele, who has reached the ethereal superstar status of being branded only by her first name. I laughed as I read a thread earlier this year where some folks here were questioning whether Tom and Gisele could "afford" their Brentwood home.

    Brady has carefully crafted his image and brand, being photographed all over Europe and Latin America. The products he endorses have international appeal and the ads he does are targeted at men and women in Europe and Latin America.

    Put it this way. Peyton Manning, Aaron Rogers, Drew Brees and their wives/girlfriends could spend a day shopping and dining-out in Manhattan and be bothered by only a couple of dozen or so American fans for photos or autographs. Tom and Gisele would have a hoard of paparazzi on their trail and, after a couple of hours, would be swamped by foreign and American visitors and have trouble walking down the street. The same would occur in London or Paris, where Manning et al would only be bothered by American tourists.

    i dunno about brady being more of a global image than kobe bryant or lebron james.

    Kobe made something around 50 million in the past year, with 30 mil being his salary... so 20 mill from endorsements is a **** ton.

    He is well known in china as well....

    Brady only made a measley 31.. but that could be due to his selective endorsement choice?

    I wonder how much he will get from having stake in UGG.

    No one here knows who Manning is.

    Kobe is popular, you're right about that. People love him because he's good and it drives me crazy. Many more people know what the word "rapist" means than before I got here.

    Of course the most popular athlete in China is Yao Ming.

    Globally speaking I think more sports fans know who Kobe is but a different set of people know who Brady is now because of his wife and all the tabloid stuff. I could be wrong, of course.

    it still makes me wonder.... you are only a top athlete for so long, so why isn't brady hoarding endorsements and cash?

    Maybe he is thinking long-term?

    She is not American. Catholicism in the third world (Sorry, Brazil, but you are not in Europe) is sometimes adhered to by Catholics.

    Of course when dance with a little string covering their arse for Carinval I'm sure they are thinking about the watchful eyes of that Jesus statue.
