Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady did not have a good time in Week 15 against the New Orleans Saints. The Bucs were blanked during their Sunday Night Football clash, and Brady let out his frustrations by tossing a Microsoft Surface tablet on the sideline, which was caught on camera.

It turns out Brady's act caught the league office's attention as well.

The veteran said he's been warned by the NFL that another tablet toss would earn him a fine. It's not exactly a surprise given the league's partnership with Microsoft, though Brady thinks his run-in with technology actually helped give the Surface some marketing spotlight.

"I won't throw another Surface ... Although I think it was pretty good marketing for the Surface at the end of the day. I think it worked out pretty well for them."

It seems Brady's day of tossing tablets on the sideline are over. He had little to be upset with this past Sunday, throwing for 232 yards and 1 touchdown in a 32-6 rout over the Carolina Panthers.

Brady draws the hapless New York Jets in Week 17, followed by the Panthers again to finish the regular season, which means all nearby Surfaces should be safe for now.
