Patriots defensive coordinator trolled Roger Goodell with clown t-shirt when he arrived back in Boston

The New England Patriots arrived back in Boston late Monday afternoon after winning Super Bowl 51 in dramatic fashion. Stepping off the team plane at the airport, New England defensive coordinator Matt Patricia took a clear shot at NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell by wearing a t-shirt that featured Goodell wearing a bright red clown nose. 

Goodell, perhaps the most hated man in New England as a result of Deflategate, suffered through several awkward encounters with different members of the Patriots after the Super Bowl ended. The crowd booed him mercilessly in Houston as he tried to congratulate New England, and then Robert Kraft took a clear shot at him with his post-game celebration speech. 

Stepping off the aeroplane, Patricia got in on the fun.

Not shockingly, the specific t-shirt that Patricia wore is the product of Barstool Sports

Patricia was also seen partying with Barstool founder and New England superfan David Portnoy after the Super Bowl.

After the Cavaliers won the NBA Finals, LeBron James stepped off his team plane in Cleveland wearing an Ultimate Warrior t-shirt — a not very subtle shot at the Golden State Warriors.

It seems that Patricia liked LeBron’s idea.
