Report: Roger Goodell Was ‘Really Bothered’ By Matt Patricia’s Goodell Clown T-Shirt
A few days ago, the New England Patriots returned home after an epic comeback in Super Bowl 51 to defeat the Atlanta Falcons. Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia got off the plane and was spotted wearing a t-shirt depicting NFL commissioner Roger Goodell as a clown.
According to CBS Sports, when that photo started circulating, Goodell caught wind of it and it really bothered him that he would be wearing that.
According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora:
“THE T-SHIRT REALLY BOTHERED HIM,” ACCORDING TO ONE OWNERSHIP SOURCE WHO HAD BEEN IN CONTACT WITH BIG WIGS AT THE LEAGUE OFFICE. “THE FACT THAT [ROBERT] KRAFT DIDN’T STOP HIM FROM WEARING THAT TICKED SOME PEOPLE OFF, BUT DID THEY REALLY THINK HE’S GOING TO PROTECT GOODELL AFTER ALL OF THIS?”

I’m sure he hated this:
