Barstool Sports and Patriots fans share a vendetta against NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. It would appear Barstool founder Dave Portnoy is ready to bring the two together.
Portnoy, whose company created the famous Goodell clown shirt sported by Pats defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, tweeted Tuesday that he is getting 30,000 towels made featuring the same image for the Patriots’ season-opener Sept. 7 against the Chiefs.
The game will mark Goodell’s first at Gillette Stadium since the 2015 AFC Championship game, which started the Deflategate scandal that made the commissioner a villain around these parts.
Thirty thousand towels would account for roughly half of the crowd, as Gillette Stadium has a seating capacity of 66,829. It is unknown how the towels will be distributed or how those carrying them could circumvent potential stadium measures to squash the idea.
