Tom Brady Takes Aim at Roger Goodell and Deflategate in Netflix Roast

Legendary quarterback Tom Brady put NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on the spot during his Netflix roast on Sunday night, bringing up the infamous Deflategate controversy.

“Where’s Roger Goodell? Remember Deflategate?”

As Brady stood on stage, he looked around the audience and quipped, “We’ve got so many great football greats tonight. But where’s Roger Goodell? Remember Deflategate?”

The crowd erupted in laughter and applause as Brady went on to poke fun at the NFL’s four-year investigation and million spent on the case.

“They Could’ve Just Given Me the Million”

“The NFL spent million and found that it was more ‘probable’ than not that I was ‘generally aware’ that someone may have deflated my footballs,” Brady said. “You could’ve just given me the million and I would’ve just told you I f—ing did it.”

Brady’s self-deprecating humor drew thunderous applause, with former teammates Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman, Rodney Harrison, and Randy Moss standing up and joining in the laughter.

The Deflategate Controversy

The Deflategate scandal made headlines in 2015 when Brady and the New England Patriots were accused of using underinflated footballs in the AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts.

The subsequent investigation led to Brady being suspended for four games the following season. However, the Patriots went on to win the playoff game 45-7 behind a strong performance from running back LeGarrette Blount.

Brady’s Legacy

Despite the Deflategate controversy, Brady went on to win three more Super Bowls and establish himself as the all-time leader in passing yards and touchdowns before retiring from the NFL in 2023.

His seven Super Bowl titles are the most by any player in history, cementing his legacy as one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game.

Brady’s Netflix roast was a mix of laughter, admiration, and a little bit of controversy. But one thing is for sure, his sense of humor and ability to laugh at himself are still as sharp as ever.
