NFL told police in Maine to watch Roger Goodell's home
Wednesday July 29th, 2015

Roger Goodell might want to change his summer vacation plans. 

Goodell, the most hated man in New England, owns a summer home in the swanky Maine community of Prouts Neck and police there are on the lookout for angry Patriots fans. 

According to the Portland Press Herald, the NFL called the Scarborough, Maine, police department on Tuesday and told them New Englanders might want to exact revenge for Goodell upholding his previous decision to suspend Tom Brady for four games.

“They did reach out and let us know about the decision and that it might not be popular,” Scarborough Police Chief Robbie Moulton told the Press Herald. “We’re aware of the situation and will be patrolling the area certainly.”

Police wouldn’t say whether Goodell was at the home and said that they haven’t received any threats. He should probably still sleep with one eye open, though.
