Robert Kraft spotted chatting with Roger Goodell
By Larry Brown
Roger Goodell and Robert Kraft apparently can be civil with one another despite the whole Deflategate controversy.
The NFL commissioner showed up for Sunday’s New England Patriots-New York Giants game at MetLife Stadium, likely to make an appearance in support of France following the terrorist attacks.
The two chatted prior to the game and were joined by rockstar Jon Bon Jovi:
Jonathan Kraft, the son of the Patriots owner, also spent time chatting with Goodell:

Jonathan Kraft says on #Patriots pre-game radio that he and Goodell were having a "civil conversation" about e-commerce and digital media— Ben Volin (@BenVolin) November 15, 2015
“Conversation was not animated. I think I use my hands a lot when I talk, but it was definitely not an animated conversation,” Jonathan Kraft said of his conversation with Goodell, via The Boston Globe’s Ben Volin.
Why is it so surprising to see Bob Kraft interacting with Goodell? Just recall the way the Patriots owner ripped the NFL for leaking false information pertaining to the scandal. He had it out for the league, and now he’s back on civil terms with Goodell. That says a lot.
