NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft have often been accused of having too chummy of a relationship. Allegations from salty fans that the league shows the Patriots preferential treatment have been flying since before SpyGate became a thing.
And the cries have never been louder than right now, as the team is embroiled in the Deflategate scandal.
Adding gasoline to the fire of rage is this photo of Goodell and Kraft looking thick as thieves, snapped just a few hours before the AFC Championship Game.

Awesome. This won’t piss people off at all. Perfectly measured reactions should prevail.
