Clearly, the job of NFL commissioner is rife with stress and pressure.
However, in such a high-profile position, an acute sensitivity to mockery is not the best personality trait to possess.
Unfortunately for him, Roger Goodell appears to bear that burden, particularly when the New England Patriots are concerned.
If you'll recall, there was a rather benign incident involving Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia and a novelty t-shirt after the Super Bowl back in February.
