New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is giving fan Jerry Edmond a very special gift following a disturbing incident on Sunday.
Edmond was in attendance for the Patriots’ Week 15 road game against the Las Vegas Raiders at Allegiant Stadium. The Raiders won on an unbelievable botched lateral play by the Patriots, with Chandler Jones taking the ball into the end zone for a walk-off victory.
Earlier this week, video footage showed a female Raiders fan getting into the face of Edmond. She aggressively yelled at Edmond and taunted him over the Raiders victory, and the latter was applauded for staying calm and relaxed during the matter.
Edmond later identified himself as the Patriots fan in that video ion Twitter.
Per Alexandra Francisco of the Patriots’ official team website, Kraft saw the disturbing video and decided to treat Edmond with the experience of a lifetime:
“The Patriots chairman and CEO called Edmond personally on Wednesday, inviting him to Saturday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Edmond accepted the invitation, and will receive a customized jersey and pregame field passes to take in warmups — certainly a better view than the one he had in Vegas.”
You can listen to a video of Kraft’s voicemail to Edmond below:
The Patriots’ loss to the Raiders dropped the, to 7-7 on the year. New England is one game behind the Miami Dolphins and the Los Angeles Chargers, who hold the final two wild card spots in the AFC.
New England will try to get back on the winning track when they host the Cincinnati Bengals this Saturday.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
