Patriots Fan Interrupts Goodell's Vacation With Message In The Sky

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld that suspicion, which caused one Patriots fan to take to the air. Richard Pate of Maine hired a pilot to fly over the commissioner's summer vacation home with a banner reading, jet home to New York. Mr. Pate refused to say how much he paid for this, but insisted it was worth it. You're listening to MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
