This may be the very apex of trolling. The pinnacle. You can’t go any higher than this.
As part of an effort to raise money for COVID relief, the NFL put together a number of online auctions during the draft weekend. One item up for bid was the chance to watch a Monday Night Football game with commissioner Roger Goodell, in his basement.
Barstool founder Dave Portnoy, who has sparred with the NFL in the past and had been thrown out of Super Bowl 53, won the auction with a $250,000 bid:

Well done. You can’t help but laugh.
The Barstool/NFL beef goes back to 2015 with ‘Deflategate,’ when Portnoy and some other disgusting Patriots fans held a protest outside NFL headquarters and got themselves arrested. Portnoy then mass produced the shirts he’s wearing in the video, with Roger Goodell resembling a clown, one of which apparently was worn by Sean Payton after the no-call during the 2019 NFC Championship Game.
Great troll job by Portnoy, and the money goes to charity, so he’s winning on multiple fronts here.
