Roger Goodell Confirms He’ll Be At Gillette Stadium For Patriots’ Opener

New England Patriots fans, mark your calendars.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, whose relationship with the Pats and their fans can be described as hostile at best, reportedly is committed to going to the NFL season opener between the Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday, Sept. 7. Goodell previously stated his intention to attend the game, but fans still have had their doubts.

That speculation likely can be put to rest, though.

Given what happened the last time Goodell was surrounded by a large number of Patriots supporters, it’s a good bet that Gillette Stadium will be quaking with boos this fall.

Goodell hasn’t attended a game at “The Razor” since the 2014 AFC Championship Game — the game that famously kicked off the Deflategate saga.
