There have been a lot of things said about Patriots owner Robert Kraft being caught up in a prostitution sting at a Florida spa, but this is probably the first time you’re going to hear someone suggest Roger Goodell might have had something to do with it.
Barstool Sports president Dave Portnoy, who is a lifelong Patriots fan, was a guest on Tucker Carlson’s show on FOX News on Friday night. He says he wouldn’t be surprised if the Commissioner of the NFL had something to do with Kraft being busted.
“They can’t beat him on the field, they’ve had six championships in a row, and this misdemeanor suddenly comes up. An eight month investigation. I wouldn’t put it past Roger Goodell to say, I can’t beat him fair and square, so this is, I believe they have a word for it, called “entrapment,” so we are going to lure him into the spa, and next thing you know, again he’s getting dragged in, by the way the police, they say they have names they haven’t released that are bigger than this. What kind of Mickey Mouse organization is this? You’re picking and choosing how and when you realase it. This is a misdemeanor that is legal in Las Vegas.”

This is one of the more wild conspiracy theories you’re going to hear. Portnoy is taking his personal grudge with Goodell to an all new level.
It’s not true, but it’s wildly entertaining, especially the strong reactions to Portnoy’s opinion.
