By now most people are well aware that Roger Goodell has a vacation home in Scarborough Maine. The commissioners home away from home has been the subject of several pranks in the past couple years including a man nailing deflated footballs to a nearby pole after the Patriots Super Bowl 51 victory and another flying a plane over Goodell’s house with a banner stating “NEW ENGLAND AERIAL ADS SUPPORTS TOM BRADY GO PATS”.
Now we have a fan making a pilgrimage to Goodell’s 6.5 million dollar home to flip him the good old bird.
I spoke with the owner of this very prominent middle finger and he explained to me that while on vacation in Scarborough Maine he stumbled upon the Goodell mansion while taking a hike along the shore of the Black Point Inn. Realizing that he had located the infamous home of the NFL’s spineless jellyfish of a commissioner he decided to exercise his First Amendment Right by displaying his displeasure through a hand gesture as old as time.
While I whole heartily commend this fan’s message, I may be even more impressed with his bravery. It’s no secret that Goodell is an extremely thin skinned man, evident by the fact that he is still in emotional shambles 5 months after Matt Patricia wore the Barstool Roger Goodell Clown shirt, so it’s a pretty bold move to go onto someones home turf and flip the bird straight into their kitchen (literally).
Goodell’s in a very fragile state right now and if he saw this obscene gesture from his window I could see him laying the hammer down on this fan by imposing a lifetime ban on all NFL activities. I’m talking banning him from all NFL stadiums, banning NFL games from his TV, and even banning his brain from even thinking about the sport of football. As Deflategate has taught us Goodell has the power of a dictator and I would put nothing past him.
