For the first time in nearly ten years, Goodell will not be attending The NFL opener. The game, of course, is at Gillette where Goodell would have to face Brady and the rest of Pats Nation. The NFL told Mike Garafolo their reasoning:
Roger Goodell will not attend next Thursday’s NFL opener in Foxboro, NFL confirmed. Believes the focus should be on game/festivities.

I think I can speak for most of Pats Nation when I say that it’ll be better without him there. Let’s get that banner up and play some distraction-free football.
Get your Brady & New England Tees Here!
