Roger Goodell remains persona non-grata at New England Patriots celebrations.
Former Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski roasted the NFL commissioner Thursday in a promotional video he released on social media. Gronkowski will throw a party in Miami ahead of Super Bowl LIV, and he’s pouring through his contacts to make sure some Patriots greats will attend: Julian Edelman? Check. Tom Brady? Check. Bill Belichick? Check.
But when Goodell calls Gronkowski looking for party details, the legendary tight end stiff-arms him.
“Hello? Oh, Roger man,” Gronkowski says into the Vince Lombardi trophy he uses as a telephone. “What’s up, man? I am not having a party. I swear. All right. Yeah, no party. Take care.”
Just testing out my new cell phone for some important business calls!

The “GRONK BEACH” festival will take place Saturday, Feb. 1, on Miami Beach. It’s bound to be one of the more high-profile Super Bowl parties, regardless of whether Brady, Belichick and Edelman attend. However, Goodell might dim the affair if he decides to troll Gronkowski and crash his party.
