With the New England Patriots leading the Pittsburgh Steelers by two touchdowns in the fourth quarter Thursday night, fans at Gillette Stadium had one question: Where was NFL commissioner Roger Goodell?
New England fans, of course, were looking forward to the regular-season opener after a lengthy off-season of Deflategate fallout and Brady’s suspension saga. The NFL is still appealing federal judge Richard Berman’s decision to nullify the league’s four-game suspension of Brady, so this story is bound to go on.
Thursday night, however, Patriots fans had a primetime stage for sounding off.
