Tom Brady may have only played three seasons in Florida, but he embraced our state's penchant for thin skin at his televised roast.

  • To be fair, Brady didn't get miffed for a large part of the live event Netflix dubbed "The Greatest Roast of All-Time."

Yes, but: Comedian Jeff Ross struck a nerve when he referenced Patriots owner Robert Kraft's arrest for soliciting prostitution at a Florida massage parlor.

  • The former Buccaneers quarterback got out of his seat and told Ross not to "say that s**t again." Ross said, "okay," with a laugh and pointed out that Kraft was "having fun."
