With the New England Patriots leading the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fourth quarter Thursday, fans at Gillette Stadium broke into a chant wondering where Roger Goodell was.
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.
