Now that the NFL has lost their battle with Tom Brady and deflategate, commissioner Roger Goodell has decided not to attend next week’s opener between the Patriots and Steelers.
Roger Goodell will not attend next Thursday's NFL opener in Foxboro, NFL confirmed. Believes the focus should be on game/festivities.
