Roger Goodell is done constantly skipping out on Patriots games.
The NFL commissioner told reporters Tuesday he plans to attend New England's Thursday night regular-season opener in Foxborough, Mass. after not attending a home game at Gillette Stadium ever since Deflategate began.
When asked why he skipped recent Patriots home games, Goodell told Fox Sports in January: "I was in Boston two years ago for the divisional and the championship games. I try to get to as many stadiums as I can. But, you know, we had two great games and you have to choose, and frankly, the focus should be on the players, the coaches, and the great game, and that's where it was this weekend and the way it should be."
It was a typical Goodell answer where he barely answers the question and then talks about stuff that wasn't really relevant to the initial question.
At the end of the season, the Patriots celebrated a Super Bowl win despite Brady starting the season under a suspension. Now to begin the 2017 season you can expect Patriots fans to remind Goodell who is on top.
