Scarborough, Maine, police were alerted ahead of time by the NFL that Goodell’s decision might not be popular. “They did reach out and let us know about the decision and that it might not be popular,”Scarborough Police Chief Robbie Moulton told the Portland Press-Herald.
“In the past, when there have been unpopular decisions, there have been emails and things. I wouldn’t say it rose to the level of threats, but certainly expressing unhappiness,” Moulton said.
Brady was suspended without pay for four games back in May after an NFL investigation said it was likely he was involved in deflating footballs before the AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts. Brady appealed that decision, but Goodell personally upheld the suspension after learning Brady had destroyed his phone during the investigation.
