Airplane banner in Maine pokes fun at Roger Goodell over deflategate

The Associated Press

SCARBOROUGH, Maine — A Maine man who hired a plane to fly banners protesting the NFL's four-game suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady again took to the air to gloat over a judge's reversal of that suspension.

The Portland Press Herald reported that Richard Pate's latest message — flown over Scarborough area beaches on Saturday — taunted NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell with the message: "Roger G. Feelin a Little Deflated?"

Pate, of Biddeford, began his airborne banner campaign in August. He paid a pilot to fly over Goodell's vacation home in the exclusive Prouts Neck neighborhood of Scarborough towing a banner urging Goodell to "Jet home to N.Y."

And Pate said he's not done yet. He vowed to send up another banner on Sunday.
