Tom Brady’s roast on Netflix, called “The Greatest Roast of All Time,” was a smashing success.

It’s been reported that around 2 million people tuned in live to watch the comedy event. If you didn’t watch it live, or even the pre-recorded (edited) version that is now on the streaming service, you probably saw the clips of nasty, no-limit jokes take over your social media.

Obviously, some of the topics of the jokes, like Aaron Hernandez and the plethora of shots that were directed at Brady’s ex-wife Gisele Bundchen, rubbed some people the wrong way. However, those same jokes that were told led some to claim that comedy was “all the way back.”

Regardless of which side you fall on (either “that was too far” or “that was pure comedy”), it was fun to see one of the greatest athletes of all time sit there for three hours and be the butt of joke after raunchy joke. Personally, I had a great time watching Tom Brady be made uncomfortable, and I know a lot of other people did too.

But one person that wasn’t all about it is recently retired football player (and now successful podcaster) Jason Kelce. On the most recent episode of New Heights, Jason and Taylor Swift’s boyfriend his brother Travis Kelce talked about the Tom Brady roast, and whether or not they themselves would sign up to be roasted.

Travis seemed to be more open to the idea, and voiced that he really enjoyed all that the comedy event had to offer. But Jason, on the other hand, was quick to voice his disdain for the art of the roast, and somewhat dismissed the idea entirely:

“It was pure entertainment and I’m really happy they did it but I just don’t get the roasts. I don’t know why people do it. Maybe I take myself too seriously…

It was star-studded. The best part about it was how many just iconic NFL and celebrities of immense stature that were there. Not to mention the entire Patriots dynasty showing up for Tom.

That being said, I really don’t f**king get it. I don’t get why people do roasts. I don’t get why they are a thing. ‘Haha, yeah, my family’s ruined, it’s so funny, everyone’s laughing, it’s great, we’re all having fun, right?'”

If you were hoping that the Kelce brothers would sign up to be co-roasted anytime soon, don’t hold your breath. It doesn’t appear that Jason will be opting in to an event like that… though a roast of the Kelce brothers would be must-see-TV just like this Tom Brady one was.
