Tom Brady Jokingly Rips NFL for Deflategate During Netflix Roast


One of the few flaws in retired NFL quarterback Tom Brady’s playing career was Deflategate, the infamous scandal that emerged in the aftermath of the 2014 AFC championship game and ultimately resulted in a four-game suspension.

The quarterback wasted no time in making a few jokes about that controversy while taking the stage during Netflix’s on Sunday Tom Brady’s roast.

“Where’s Roger Goodell?” asked Brady, knowing full well the NFL commissioner was not present. “Remember Deflategate? The NFL spent $20 million and found it ‘more likely’ than not that I was ‘generally aware’ that someone might have deflated my footballs.

“You could have just given me the $20 million and I would have told you that I fucking did it.”

Former Patriots coach Bill Belichick was among those in attendance who gave this joke a standing ovation.

The Roast of Brady, hosted by comedian Kevin Hart, featured performances by Belichick and former teammates Julian Edelman, Randy Moss and Rob Gronkowski.

There were plenty of highlights throughout the evening, from Brady firing back at the roasters to Belichick poking fun at quarterback Drew Bledsoe in a skit and Rob Gronkowski teasing about his broadcasting career.

After wrapping up the branding, Brady’s next televised appearance could be Week 1 of the upcoming 2024 NFL season, when he begins his career as FOX Sports’ lead color commentator alongside play-play-play announcer Kevin Burkhardt.
