President Donald Trump isn’t one afraid to ruffle some feathers. It’s his outspoken attitude and ability to go away from the norm that caught the attention of those who voted him into office. As divisive as Trump himself might be, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is an equally divisive figure around the football world. Heck, one might say that the two could be connected at the hip. But just don’t tell Trump that. The current president had some harsh words for Goodell in comments that were just released by The New York Times. “The commissioner is a weak guy,” Trump said. “When he made the Ray Rice deal, everybody said: You’re stupid. You’re weak. And it was such a weak deal. So now he’s going overboard with their star, Brady.” It’s not a secret that President Trump has a personal relationship with Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and Patriots owner Robert Kraft. It’s also not a secret that he sided with the Patriots in the whole Deflategate issue. But for the president to go out of his way to call the NFL Commissioner a weak guy, he must have some strong feelings on this.
