Tom Brady got roasted on Netflix at the Forum in Los Angeles on Sunday. As to be expected with a live roast, there were some touchdowns… and some things went upside down.

The opening scene of the roast was a New England Patriots fan’s dream. Coach Bill Belichick gives former quarterback Drew Bledsoe the bad news that he’s not the star of the night. Instead, Tom Brady is getting the love, harkening back to Belichick’s legendary decision to start Brady over Bledsoe against the Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI. That game launched the Patriots and Brady into the sports halls of fame.

Bledsoe again took it like a champ, before he got to the mic and tore Brady apart, including what seemed to be some locker-room insight that Brady wouldn’t shower with his Patriots teammates when he got to the NFL.

A pretty drunk Bledsoe then launched into a joke about Brady driving a yellow Jeep, not being “gay,” and being a top with Bledsoe himself.

The gay and dick jokes were aplenty, most landing as traditional humor.

Though the talk of social media may be a Julian Edelman “joke” (big quotes) that mocked former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez and his hanging in jail.

At Outsports, we’ve long left the door open to “gay” jokes and successful humor being an important part of public discourse.

Mocking Hernandez in this way went too far. And people across the internet are responding in kind.

It’s a shame. Much of the Tom Brady roast was a lot of fun. Brady famously won seven Super Bowls, six with the Patriots and one with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. To have Bledsoe, Belichick and Patriots owner Robert Kraft all there, in addition to other Patriots stars like Rob Gronkowski and Randy Moss, was a Patriots fans’ dream reunion.

At three hours, the live Netflix roast was too long. Still, there were a lot of great moments. I’ll look forward to the 90-minute edited version.
