Patriots fan pictured with Goodell: “I really don’t care for him”

@NFLPRguy

The NFL published a photo on social media Thursday night of three Patriots fans smiling with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell at New England’s preseason opener. That has led some other Patriots fans to rip the three on social media, saying real Patriots fans wouldn’t pose with Goodell, who suspended Tom Brady for the first four games of last season over Deflategate.

Now one of the fans is speaking up for himself — and against Goodell. Josh Bisson, one of the three Patriots fans photographed with Goodell, said on WEEI that he felt “used as a prop” by the NFL, which hastily arranged the photo with Goodell and posted it on social media before the fans knew what was going on.

“It’s kind of an embarrassing thing but you know what? He was a nice guy to us,” Bisson said. “I can’t say that I like the guy because I don’t. I really don’t care for him.”

Bisson said NFL employees who were “P.R. people with suits” were eager to arrange a picture with fans and the commissioner. Bisson wants everyone to know, however, that just because he was smiling with Goodell doesn’t mean he likes Goodell.

“I don’t like the guy still,” Bisson said.

Plenty of Patriots fans will agree with that sentiment.

  1. A real Patriot fan would have never taken the picture. But if they did I would expect a middle finger behind the evil clowns head.

  2. Perhaps Florio can help. Can they sue the NFL for publishing the photo without consent? It would be funny if they could and did.

  3. Just shows how committed to principle Pats fans are. You don’t like him, OK, then don’t try to get your picture taken to show off to all your friends.

  4. So somebody put a gun to his head to pose with Goodell? He made his choice, and is now backtracking. Stick to your guns!!! Quit your crying.

  5. These three bozos don’t speak for all the Patriots fans and there loyalty!!! Pat’s fans will be ready for Goodell on opening night and that’s one thing we lifetime fans dont do is forget anything!!!!

  6. The real story is how hard Goodell and his PR flacks are working to suck up to Patriots fans.

    No sale.

  7. A real Patriots fan wouldn’t care about Goodell. Goodell is just a figurehead paid by the NFL owners to be their public face. Goodell makes no decisions on his own, he just announces the decisions of the other owners.

    If you say “I don’t like Goodell!” then what you really should be saying is “I don’t like the NFL owners!”

    This isn’t to say Goodell is some kind of great guy. He’s just a hired gun who gets a lot of money to take the heat for the NFL owerns.

  8. If Goodell had any guts, he would have apologized to the Patriots for the hell he put them through with the sting operation he conducted and the phony Wells Report and the bogus story that Brady ‘destroyed’ his cell phone. Goodell made up evidence to make it look like the Patriots were guilty of something, his lawyers lied in court and he must have bought off the judges decisions. No Patriot fan will ever rest until he is out of the league.

  9. This is how bros make fun of people. They take pictures with someone acting like they like them, but in reality it’s a fake smile. Then they post it on social media to draw reactions. They would do the same thing if they were wearing a Goodell clown shirt. It’s meant to be ironic, another part of their endless quest to be funny.

  10. I can only hope that those mocking these three for posing for the photo have not criticized any NFL players who passed on visiting the White House regardless of whether it was Trump or Obama in office at the time.

  11. Newsflash to Pats fans: We know you don’t like Goodell because you never stop running your mouths about it. The rest of us would like you to know that we couldn’t possibly care less and that we’re sick of your constant whining

    Exactly. I actually like the Pats a lot as a team I just can’t stand their classless, graceless, obnoxious fans. I can’t wait till the Brady/Belicheat era ends and they return to mediocrity because after the way they’ve been acting they have to expect that they’re going to receive the same treatment in return. Turnabout is fair play

  14. We don’t need social media shaming of guys who only want to cheer for their favorite team. They saw a celebrity who runs the NFL and they posed for a picture with him. So what. So would most people if asked. It’s just crappy that Roger used the picture as a political tool without regard for how it could effect the fans in the photo.

  15. This reminds me a lot of the Entourage episode with Tom Brady where Turtle (a Giants fan) said he was going to tell Brady off and then he ended up chickening out and hanging out with Brady. That’s reality. What you think you would say to Roger if he directly asked you to get a picture would not be what you would say. He’s still a famous guy, and it’s still a good story. No need to shame these guys as most people would do the same despite their anonymous criticism. It doesn’t mean they think Roger is a good commissioner or what he did to Brady was fair. Even Brady, BB and Kraft shook his hand don’t forget.

  16. Seriously, who cares and why is this a story? Did WEEI have time to kill? Can they fill four hours of time when Kirk Minihane is out of town? This is garbage.

    I guess you didn’t meet any Dolphins/Steelers/Cowboys/49ers fans in their heyday. It comes with the Territory. There’s really nothing a Patriots fan can say to a fan of another team that doesn’t sound patronizing or conceited. As a matter of fact, just wearing a Patriots logo somewhere on your clothing and not even talking about football is enough to garner hatred. All we can do is embrace the hate and enjoy the attention, because it won’t last forever!

  18. How quickly things can change. It wasn’t that long ago when Goodell and Kraft were best friends.

  19. I don’t want to victimblame but if he went out at night in the appropriate attire, this wouldn’t have happened. Please, fellow Patriots’ fans – wear your Goodell Clown-Nose shirts and these types of attacks won’t continue

  20. When did disliking Goodell become exclusive to Pats fans? Did suspending Tom Brady suddenly make this megalomaniacal idiot a hero to the rest of the league? Did everyone forget that he’s been a jerk to multiple teams? Did the Steelers forget that he spent a season targeting James Harrison for hits that were predominately legal just to prove to Congress that the league was taking head injuries seriously so they wouldn’t start hearings on concussions? Did Steelers fans forget our team was the only one to vote against the current CBA because players didn’t want this egomaniac to have sole responsibility for suspending players? Did Saints fans forget he went after your defense when film showed they hadn’t done anything off the books? Did they forget he tanked an entire Saints season by suspending your coach?

    It’s easy to make fun of these guys for posing with the commissioner when they’re supposed to be hating on him, but I can’t help laughing at all the other fans who should be hating on him and seem to have suddenly decided he’s a great guy just because he stuck it to the Pats. Yeah, he did. And next time he may stick it to your team for some equally stupid reason.

  21. I’ve met some obnoxious Steelers fans. None as obnoxious as you guys. Not even close.

    I’ve met plenty of obnoxious Cowboy and 9er fans. I consider them irrelevant at this point, with all due respect. They haven’t won anything relevant in over 20 years. How could they possibly talk trash?

    I have the utmost respect for the Patriots. Belichick may very well be the best coach ever. Certainly the best at putting a player in his system and getting the most out of him. I’m not sure even Walsh did it as well is Belichick. I respect Brady. I don’t like him. I don’t like watching him, and I’ll never root for him, under any circumstance.

    I’m not jealous of single thing that team has accomplished. Sure, I wish that was my Packers instead, but I learned something in my years. You get what you earn. My team hasn’t earned that right.

    Whats great is, you dopes think we’re jealous of YOU, as if YOU were part of those accomplishments somehow. As if we’d like to be YOU.

    I just hope you keep thinking that. Its highly amusing.

  22. “you dopes think we’re jealous of YOU, as if YOU were part of those accomplishments somehow. As if we’d like to be YOU.”

    Packers’ fans should be jealous of every single human being that lives outside of the state of Wisconsin

  23. Pats fans have become the absolute most annoying fan base in the entire league. Still whining about golden boy Brady being suspended and yet you still won the Super Bowl. Then you have this dope who whined he felt like a “prop”. Any grown man with a set between his legs who honestly doesn’t care for someone wouldn’t take a picture with him no matter how rushed he was.

  24. I guess you didn’t meet any Dolphins/Steelers/Cowboys/49ers fans in their heyday. It comes with the Territory.

    There is something you can say to appear less of a Patriot jerk……..nothing instead of running your mouth. Your teams success has nothing to do with you. You didn’t inherit Super intelligence because the Pas are good…..so stop trying to impart you so-called insight that is great because you are a Pat’s fan…..it’s wearing very thin so give it a rest…..if you do maybe you could become tolerable….but only in small….very small doses.

    Says the troll that obsessively posts on every single article about the Patriots.

  26. Goodell is hated by everyone but the patsie fans!!! He fixed the super bowl so the patsies win to stay in the good graces of Kraft. Not even the Browns forget to play defense. REAL!!!

    System dimwit – term used to describe an individual who utilizes multiple usernames in order to post constant nonsense. Multiple user names used in conjunction as a system of stupidity. Someone is working way too hard to make Dolphin fans look like bad.

  28. They must have been Jet fans disguised as Patriot fans. No self respecting Patriots fan would take a picture with this guy unless it was of them giving roger a moon or the middle finger!

  29. The picture was just the latest example of Roger Goodells spin machine attempting to manipulate public opinion. It was Roger Goodells people who asked the fans to pose with Roger. It was also Roger Goodells people who publicized the picture. I wasn’t aware that Roger Goodell had a habit of posing with fans.

    That same spin machine was able to use the mass media to get a bunch of dupes to believe nonsense when they planted buzz words in the media. Remember this catchy phrase? “Brady Destroyed his phone”.

    The NFL understood that many people would be willing dupes that would never consider the fact that the NFL already had printed phone logs that Brady provided plus the 2 team owned phones. Therefore no unknown communication on the “destroyed phone”. Just a buzz word to market to gullible dupes.
