Man flies banner over Roger Goodell's home to protest Brady suspension
This probably isn't what the NFL had in mind when it advised the police to watch over commissioner Roger Goodell's summer home in Maine.
A man hired a plane on Saturday to fly the words “COMM. GOODELL JET HOME TO N.Y.” over the house, according to WCSH6.
The man, Richard Pate of Maine, told WCSH6 that he hired the plane to protest the Deflategate suspension of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Goodell and the NFL upheld Brady's four-game suspension earlier this week.
Pate said he wants to hire the plane to fly the banner again on Sunday or Monday, so if Goodell missed out on seeing it on Saturday he still has another chance.
This is just the latest instance in fans hiring planes to fly banners over things related to Deflategate, as a group of Jets fans recently purchased a banner to fly over Patriots practice reading “CHEATERS LOOK UP! @JETSFANMEDIA.”
