NFL Executives Mad At New England Patriots Over Post Super Bowl Antics
According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, NFL executives are “seething” at the Patriots for their actions after winning Super Bowl LI.
The report says these executives didn’t like Robert Kraft saying his fifth title was “the sweetest” and also were upset Kraft didn’t stop Matt Patricia from wearing a Barstool Sports t-shirt of Roger Goodell as a clown on the team plane when they were returning from Houston.
The t-shirt really didn’t go over well with Goodell which is great that he knows it exists.
“The t-shirt really bothered him,” an ownership source told La Canfora. “The fact that 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?”
The report also said Kraft still wants league counsel Jeff Pash out.
“Robert still wants Pash out,” an ownership source said to La Canfora. “The only way there will ever be a full reconnect between the Patriots and Goodell is if Pash was no longer there.”
