MINNEAPOLIS, MN (WBZ-AM) -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is a man that was not very popular around New England during Deflategate.
He took to the microphone Wednesday ahead of Sunday's big game for his Annual State of The League Press Conference.
Goodell says that the league continues to be a tremendous product in demand around the country.
Part of the reason he says is because of the parity in the league but he was asked if there's such parity then why do the Patriots go to so many Super Bowls?
“What I think it does say is the incredible achievement the Patriots as a team, as an organization have achieved it's…it's really remarkable,” Goodell said.
Among those listening here Patriots owner Robert Kraft who hopes to see the commissioner on the field Sunday evening and in him a trophy.
