It seemed like a matter of time before NFL Commish Roger Goodell would have to enter enemy territory in New England after the Super Bowl, and it sounds like he’s about to come the kickoff game of the 2017 season.
“I plan to be at the kickoff game,” Goodell said to ESPN.
Goodell wasn’t on hand at all for last season when the Patriots took the field, becoming public enemy number one after he suspended quarterback Tom Brady for the first four games of the season for the ‘Deflategate’ saga.
“We’re happy that we’ll be celebrating our fifth banner, and he can decide whether he wants to be there,” Patriots owner Robert Kraft said of Goodell on Monday.
