Netflix broadcasted a live roast of New England Patriots legend Tom Brady last night. The Greatest Roast of All-Time: Tom Brady featured roasts from Bill Belichick, Peyton Manning, Drew Bledsoe, Randy Moss, Julian Edelman, and Rob Gronkowski. Several comedians from outside the NFL world were part of the festivities as well. As is custom, Brady got the final word at his roast, getting a chance to return the favor on the dais to conclude the event.

Other former Patriots players were on stage at The Forum but did not speak. These included Matt Light, Nate Solder, Dan Koppen, Danny Amendola, Rodney Harrison, and Willie McGinest. Several comedians spoke during the roast as well. Kevin Hart hosted.

How funny of a roast it was is up to individual viewers. From this perspective, Drew Bledsoe and Bill Belichick were two highlights. Comedians Nikki Glaser and Sam Jay each got huge laughs as well. Aside from Brady, other frequent targets were Belichick, Gronkowski, Brady’s ex-wife Gisele Bundchen, and Brady’s trainer turned business partner Alex Guerrero.

Bill Belichick taking a shot with Brady, Gronkowski, and Edelman, then another later with Robert Kraft, were among the more memorable moments for New England Patriots fans. The “GROAT” was not like typical roasts shown on Comedy Central. There were no restrictions on what people were allowed to say, or at least none followed. The panel took full advantage. It was not a PG-rated performance. That said, following all of the negativity discussed in The Dynasty, it was nice to see a group of people responsible for the greatest run in NFL history sharing a few laughs.
