NFL commissioner Roger Goodell can do no good. The unpopular NFL bureaucrat has a penchant for suspending the league’s favorite players, and that’s exactly what he did to beloved Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady. So, when Brady’s Super Bowl LI jersey was reported stolen, blaming Goodell was a no-brainer.
Fans shown here at New England Patriots Super Bowl victory parade in Boston ripped the commissioner a new one, in sign after sign. But this one took the prize. First, the commissioner stole four game days from Brady, depriving Patriots fans of their favorite quarterback for allegedly overinflating a pigskin. Next, when the five-time championship quarterback overcame the setback and won the Lombardi trophy anyway, his jersey disappears from his locker. Goodell must have stolen that too. Logic.
The Biggest Loser Glitch
Hilarious, right? Is she dissing the Kansas City Chiefs about being overweight as well as being losers? That makes the biggest losers, the winners, when it comes to pounds on that particular reality TV show. This fan sign is a clever way to honor the longstanding rivalry between the Broncos and the Chiefs. However, the Chiefs are no losers. They’ve been serving up contentious battles against their adversary for years.
The feud took root way back in 1960. It’s become one of the NFL’s most celebrated rivalries with legendary quarterbacks John Elway of the Broncos squaring off against Joe Montana of the Chiefs. Today, whenever the two teams are scheduled to meet, fans rival as fiercely as the players on the field. It’s part of the fun of being a fan.
Bills Fans Have Something to Smile About
When the Buffalo Bills host the Patriots, the time is ripe for “deflategate” jokes. Since winning, in all likelihood, is off the table for the Bills, they opt to frolic in roasting Tom Brady instead. Besides jibing him for under inflating footballs to make them easier to throw and catch, the Bills fans enjoy reaming him for being a cheater. There’s a cute “Cheaties” instead of Wheaties cereal meme they think he should sponsor. Whatever the reasons, the Bills fan base is wild about teasing Tom Brady.
Back in 2012, way before Brady got caught altering the air content of pigskins, he insulted the entirety of upstate New York. During a nationally broadcast Super Bowl press conference, the star quarterback took a dig at the lodging options near Buffalo. He had this to say: “I don’t know if any of you guys have ever been to the hotels in Buffalo, but they’re not the nicest places in the world.” Local tourism officials responded immediately.
Prime Time Dig
She got the house, the car, and the (eternally sold-out) Packers season tickets. Here’s her chance for just one more jab at the lying, cheating ex who has undoubtedly blocked all her calls, texts and social media accounts by now.
Ha! Revenge is a dish best served cold. She gets the last word—dishing it out live, broadcast nationwide. Who’s the loser now? How’s that cozy couch-side view? Sure, he may have found someone better. But he’ll have to wait 30 years to procure another set of Green Bay Packers season tickets. Sorry. Lambeau Field sold out in 1960. No extra charge for sub-zero temps.
Anonymous Dig at Eagles Fans
Philadelphia Eagles fans probably deserved this one. Comparing a football franchise to the U.S. Postal Service is a true insult. The agency has been called slow, overburdened with bureaucracy, and laced with a regressive tendency to “go postal.” The meme-worthy reply: “Well played, Patriots fans.”
Patriot fans scored a genuine win with this one. The Patriots and Eagles fan base rivalry goes way back, but the Super Bowl LII matchup stirred it up even more. All told, the East coast rivals have a lot in common when it comes to exuberant expressions of team spirit.
