Chiefs punter predicts Goodell will “be on our side” in game at New England

The 2017 regular season will begin what the Chiefs visiting the Patriots. That game will include Commissioner Roger Goodell visiting New England.

For now, Goodell is visiting Kansas City. And during a Friday fan event at Arrowhead Stadium, Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt made a prediction for the September 7 opener, via Vahe Gregorian of the Kansas City Star: “I think Roger’s going to be on our side.”

Joke or not, plenty of Patriots fans will believe that, even though the Commissioner’s official position is that he roots for the team that is trailing in any given game at any given time. Patriots fans have made their minds up about Goodell, and nothing that he can say or do at this point (short of preemptively giving the Patriots the next Super Bowl championship or two) will change that.

Which is one of the reasons why Patriots fans vs. Goodell received a mention in Friday’s discussion on PFT Live of the top rivalries in the NFL.

  1. Goodell cheated. FACT

    He did it in 2007, causing a massive distraction and more lies for SB 42, and their stolen draft pick sure would have helped them in SB 46, too.

    Arrest, try and convict the criminal. Stick em next to Madoff in Butner, NC.

    I wish I would have heard that segment.

    I never thought I’d experience anyone gaslighting more than him……but man was I ever wrong on that one.

  3. I am sure Andy Reid loves it when the Punter talks smack in public about their toughest opponent of the season and the Commissioner all in the same breath.

  4. He’s right, Roger admitted he always roots for the team that is behind in the game. Although, there was one exception last february I believe.

    Yeah, Pats fans and Chiefs fans can commisserate together on this stuff. Both teamesvgot hosed. I can see both fanbases sharing brews together while they root for their respective teams with with the only animosity being for the commissioner.

  6. Goodell works for the owners. And the owners are sick of the Patriots winning. Whether you think it’s true, invented or somewhere in between. That’s just hiw how it is.

  7. I don’t see this as bulletin board material or any of that stuff. This is just a player giving his opinion on how he sees Goodell behave. Like most objective people, he sees that it’s clear that Goodell was out to get the Patriots in deflagrate. Clear as day. This just shows the rest of the league is aware of it too. Most won’t say it because they don’t want to be next… but the players in the league know what’s going on, they aren’t dumb

    The Chiefs will need a lot more than Goodell on their side to beat the Pats.
    P.S.—-Patriot fans never forgive or forget

    41-14 on MNF wasn’t that long ago so I guess Pats fans do forget…
