Four Barstool Sports employees, including its founder David Portnoy, converged on NFL headquarters in New York, hoping to speak with Commissioner Roger Goodell about Patriots QB Tom Brady’s 4-game suspension (yeah right).
The four staged the little sit-in in the lobby of the building after parading signs outside that read “Kensil is a bitch,’ Hate us cause they aint us’ and ‘Fire Goodell!’… Cops showed up soon after and locked them up. The entire stunt last about 15 minutes.
Portnoy called into 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Felger & Massarotti show during the protest just before they were arrested.
“This is a one-sided bogus investigation from the beginning,” Portnoy told the show. “The NFL can tell as many lies as they want.”
As of this report, the four are still in police custody. H/T and Boston.com.
