Tom: (revealing his thoughts on sending text messages) I don't get any pleasure from that sort of thing. I have never seen a text message - what's the point? Why not ring someone up? I think a lot of people hide behind emails because they don't like being asked questions. I love being interviewed and asked questions because I like a good chat.
Tom: (on doing encores) That's (passing) what we do. Were we supposed to take a knee with four minutes to go? I don't think so. That's not how we play.
Tom: We can't put the kids in that situation; it's just too dangerous. And it's secondary. With what the people down there are dealing with, that's the main priority, not a football game.
Tom: The first quarter was like a boxing match, with a big punch here, and a punch there.
Tom: Because the shuttle is docked, it wouldn't be able to go after them if they got away.
Tom: It really hit me in the gut, because I hadn't really done anything affirmative, to sort of grab the president and shake some sense into him. So this had happened on my watch.

They're used to playing well at home, it's going to be a big crowd and I know they're going to be excited. It's going to be a great test for us to play in that environment.

Tom: Whenever I've been asked to be in a film, directors only want me to play myself... I'm fascinated by the thought of being an actor, but it's too hard. And I think Shakespeare-which has been suggested to me-might be a bit of a stretch.
